Too much slapstick for my liking - but there are many good lines to pay off for it.
7 June 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny are the main stars of this short, Yosemite Sam is Pirate Sam and Bugs Bunny is the only surviving crew member when he confronts him (as all the other crew members and captain have drowned themselves). Pirate Sam battles with Bugs to try and win the ship - but Bugs is not going to make it easy for him..!

This short contains a great deal of slapstick, especially for the time (around 1954 most of the directors/writers were quite sensible in their amounts of slapstick). There are also some very good lines and the animation is good. Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam are both good characters, it seems they work as a team, even though they are battling against each other.

This cartoon is based on "Bucaneer Bunny" made a few years before. "Bucaneer Bunny" is slightly better, with more jokes, but because I had watched this first, the jokes in "Bucaneer Bunny" were more predictable.

Hope you like this episode! I recommend this short to people who like old fashioned ships, Looney Tunes and amusing slapstick. Enjoy "Captain Hareblower"! :-)
