Nom de plume! This is a great cartoon!
3 June 2001 | by (Delaware, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the epitome of great comic satire. No one is safe when they try to conquer Bugs, not even the French.

Ever the victim of species-ism, Bugs is caught between two rival French chefs. But the tables are turned in the end when Bugs turns them both into rabbits and serves up a tasty dish of revenge.
