ant misbehaving
30 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Usually, Elmer Fudd plays second banana to Bugs Bunny, so it's always eye-opening when he gets to be the lead role. In "Ant Pasted", he goes on a picnic for Fourth of July and starts lighting dynamite and throwing it at some nearby ants. Before too long, the formic co-stars have turned into bigger bad-asses than the ones in "Them!" ever dreamed of being.

I agree with a previous reviewer that maybe they could have given the ants some more character, but otherwise, the whole cartoon's a hoot. And you'd better believe that they've got some neat stuff planned with the dynamite. When I was young, I always thought that the dynamite tricks were so cool, that one year, I even went out as a stick of dynamite for Halloween! Nowadays, that would probably lead to an arrest.

Anyway, this is one of the many cartoons that show why the Looney Tunes were truly the gold standard of their day. I imagine that the people making the cartoon probably had lots of fun creating it. Cool.
