Colorful, But Not Too Humorous
14 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs, hiding inside a crate of carrots, winds up on the streets of Paris when the crate falls off the truck. He then meanders down the street and is spotted by competing chefs. They both think the rabbit is what they need to complete their menus. The colors in here are magnificent as they make Paris look really colorful.

Our bunny hero, as he usually does, makes fools of his opponents in a variety of ways that makes them look really stupid. In this case, one of the chefs is a little too stupid for humor. Although there were a handful of funny lines at the expense of the French stereotypes at the time, this really wasn't one of the better Bugs Bunny efforts.
