The doctor at the radiography station says he's overworked and checks his pulse, but he pressed his thumb to his wrist. Anyone with medical training knows that because there's also a pulse point in the thumb that it cannot be done this way. Feeling for a pulse is always done with the forefinger. See more »

29 May 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Knowing that Bugs Bunny is usually the cleverest character in the cartoons, it's quite jarring to see him engage in the buffoonery portrayed in "Forward March Hare". True, he makes a living being irreverent, but his actions here border on the sorts of things that one would expect to see on "Gilligan's Island". But if we try to call him stupid, as a previous reviewer did, that gets countered by his super-vision.

So why didn't he realize that the letter bore a slightly different name? Well, that was an honest mistake. But it does seem that he should have suspected something strange about suddenly getting a letter announcing that he's been drafted. Still, it's really funny to see him walk around with a deadpan expression, befuddling the X-ray man and getting the general angry at the sergeant.

So, it's a funny cartoon, but kind of strange.
