Very good episode!! :-)
19 March 2010 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode a great deal for the following reasons:

1. Bugs Bunny is very funny and entertaining. 2. Elmer Fudd is reasonably good here (he has a very good taste in plants, anyhow, as you will see if you watch the cartoon). 3. The animation is quite an odd style for the time but perfectly pleasant. 4. The "Rome" song is FAB! :-) 5. Elmer Fudd has an excessive pent house which makes the cartoon enjoyable (for some reason).

In this episode, Elmer Fudd is driving in the desert one day when he comes across a rare flower. He excitedly digs it up and takes in it in his car to his top-floor apartment in a skyscraper. Little does he realize that he has also dug up a rabbit, who is very surprised when he realizes he is bathing in an apartment swimming pool rather than in desert waters...

The only thing I found a bit iffy about this cartoon was the last third or so of it. It was almost as if the makers had had a discussion saying: "Oh, I've just realized this cartoon has no plot. Oh, we'd better stick one in at the end. Let's do this.." BLAHBLAHBLAH... It's not that this last part of the cartoon is bad or unentertaining, but in a way it is almost unnecessary and has a very different gag and storyline style compared to the rest of the cartoon.

I recommend this cartoon to anyone who likes Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd, as well as Looney Tunes in general. This cartoon is recommended both to people who like the witty side and the slapsticky side of the animated series. Enjoy "Upswept Hare"! :-)

8 and a half out of ten.
