Storyline

Shorty, a school-age rabbit with a high-pitched voice, jumps into Bugs Bunny's rabbit hole to escape the clutches of the villainous, but extremely stupid, Pete Puma, whose distinctive speech climaxes in an ear-splitting screech. Pete tries to trick Bugs and Shorty with an exploding cigar. Doesn't work. The cigar says "El Explodo" right on the wrapper. He tries to trick them by disguising himself as Shorty's mother. Doesn't work either. His rabbit ears are leaves that are inelegantly affixed to his hat. How can this poor, pathetic puma win the day? Smarter opponents than he have failed to outwit the wily Bugs Bunny. Written by J. Spurlin

Though repetitive, this is still a good Bugs Bunny episode. :-)
4 October 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed "Rabbit's Kin," mainly for the cute little rabbit (who is completely ununderstandable and painful for many ears), Bugs Bunny and Pete Puma, even though he is a little annoying and the animation is good. I also liked the humour - usually I find repetitive humour very irritating and it often puts me off the thing I am watching, but in this case I did not mind! Pete Puma is a good character, almost as likable as Elmer Fudd, but I would not give the tea leaves in my china teapot to see all his other episodes (if he has any more). He is surprisingly stupid, even more so than many of the the characters that Bugs Bunny is paired with.

In this episode, we see a little brown bunny rabbit with big eyes, running away from something or other. He bumps into Bugs Bunny and tells him that a puma is trying to catch and eat him (here Bugs Bunny seems to be some kind of linguist, as he understands the baby bunny, yet no-one else understands him). We also meet Pete Puma, the puma trying to hunt the little brown rabbit...

I recommend this episode to people who like Bugs Bunny and people who like repetitive cartoons (and even to some people who do not!). Enjoy "Rabbit's Kin"! :-)
