"Say your prayers you long eared galoot"

I have always loved Bugs paired with Yosemite Sam, and The Fair Haired Hare is one of their better shorts. The story is not routine or predictable in any way, and is very energetically paced. The animation is just beautiful, both characters are well drawn, the backgrounds have a great amount of detail and the colours are vibrant. The music score has always been a big part of why Looney Tunes shorts have been so good, and The Fair Haired Hare is no exception with lively orchestration and catchy melody. The writing is fresh and witty, with inspired wordplay, memorable puns and rapid rapport between Bugs and Sam. The gags are clever and very funny, I can't get enough of the gag where Bugs gets stuck in the bear rug. Bugs and Sam are both on top form, just doing what they do best, Bugs' likability and Sam's abrasiveness contrast wonderfully. The voice acting of Mel Blanc is superb. All in all, brilliant and one of the better Bugs Bunny/Yosemite Sam shorts. 10/10 Bethany Cox
