half a century later, the oil itself would have to be the star
9 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

While "Oily Hare" has its plot, the idea of a Texas oil well is what catches my attention. The unctuous - or should I say "oily" - tycoon here is exactly the type who would have forced the Cajuns off of their land in Louisiana, just as he tries to do to Bugs Bunny. And we see how much the oil industry affects policy today.

Of course, I've probably gone too far in analyzing this cartoon. I'm sure that it was intended as crazy entertainment, and it certainly entertains. When they start playing Raymond Scott's "Powerhouse" is when you know that you're in for something really cool, and boy are you! Anyway, a pretty funny one.
