Maintaining The High Standard

DOING AN EXCELLENT job of combing two sub-genres of the cartoon world, the production team of HARE LIFT turned in a short that rates up near the top of the heap. It is interesting how well Isador "Fritz" Freleng always seems to have handled the character and Bugs Bunny foe par excel lance in Yosemite Sam.

PERHAPS AT LEAST a part of the great affinity lies in the fact that Sam is allegedly a sort of caricature of the great animation Director, himself.

SO WE MENTIONED combining two types of stories in this cartoon were successfully combined. They are the regular series star type and what has been called the "Clothesline" picture. We heard this last term in an interview with ROCKY & BULLWINKLE co-producer Bill Scott.

HE STATED THAT the aforementioned "Clothesline" story is one with no real, true or discernible scenario. The lack of a plot is replaced by the large number of gag sequences, which are laid out one after another until the allotted one reel of film is filled. it is likened to hanging out the laundry on clothesline to dry. As a classic example, we offer THE ROADRUNNER & COYOTE Series.

BUT GETTING BACK to this Bugs Bunny cartoon., we find it to be about good as so many previous shorts featuring Yosemite Sam. It bids fair to keep up the standards that the Warner Brothers Animation unit at "Termite Terrace" had set in the previous two decades.

WE MUST CONCLUDE and wrap it up by saying that HARE LIFT is the product of the post World War II variety of historical happenings. One being the Berlin Air Lift of 1947.* Another would be the fame that was heaped upon the mega giant Howard Hughes plane, known as the Spruce Goose. it was a plane that never did fly.

NOTE: * This first great test of the "Cold War" between the Nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the Soviet Union was dramatized in THE BIG LIFT(20th Century-Fox, 1950) with Montgomery Clift and Paul Douglas.
