Bugs Vs. The Oil Baron
4 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, the puns and the parodies, etc., are in full bloom right off the bat in this takeoff of Texas and it's oilmen and all their money.

Bugs' even has his own address: "Deepinhola, Texas." Down there, in his semi-fancy hole in the ground, Bugs is first seen singing and playing the banjo. Here are some of his lyrics to the famous song "Home On The Range:"

"Oh, give me a home, where the billionaires roam, and the oil and the cattlemen play

"With their gushing oil wells and their gushing hotels, and count up their money all day......"

Well, you get the idea: this is oil country and tons of money The first real sign of that when we soon see the longest limousine in history roll up and we get the two other main characters of this story: two small dudes: the billionaire oil man and his chauffeur "Maverick."

Since, as the little oil man states, there shouldn't be a hole in Texas that isn't gushing oil, they see Bugs' hole in the ground and want to convert that to an oil well. That's the theme of this story, and you know Bugs is not going to allow that!

The oil man, in essence, was Yosemite Sam without the beard: same Mel Blanc voice, same stupid, obnoxious character and same foil for Bugs. The ending was good, with Bugs explaining to us how this improbable thing we see could happen.
