A funny Freleng flick
21 July 2004 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Chuck Jones is best known as an animator who dealt with futuristic concepts. In Robot Rabbit, however, Friz Freleng directs a science-fiction story starring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd.

Elmer owns a farm in Indiana, were carrots abound. Such an enticing smorgasbord of vegetables is irresistible to rabbits, so Bugs binges on them. When Elmer finds out, he contacts ACME pest control, which supplies him with a robot to get rid of a long-haired bunnies. However, the robot seems to think anything with long ears is a rabbit, so . . .

Bugs isn't always successful in Robot Rabbit. He gets badly concussed when the intruding pile of tin socks him. This is a very funny cartoon, with a nice ending, and brilliantly animated: few animators would take the trouble to add overlap and elasticity to a few carrots that fly into the air. Recommended for all fans of the carrot-crunching icon we knows as Bugs Bunny. In other words: Recommended to all!
