Trivia

The legendary Chuck Jones left Warner Brothers for four months over the production of this cartoon, which he felt was unsatisfactory. He went to Disney for those months, and worked on Sleeping Beauty (1959), but eventually realized that, although he thought Walt Disney was an excellent producer, the company was not right for him. A famous meeting occurred when Disney told Jones "We can work out something for you" and Jones responded "Well, you have one job here that I want, and that's yours!" to which Disney said "I'm sorry, it's filled." It was the only time Jones left the company in a career that lasted over 25 years, until Jones was "let go" with the animation department in 1962. See more »

"I'll be scared later. Right now I'm too mad!"
15 July 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Interesting Bugs Bunny short, directed by Chuck Jones, that's notable for being the first Warner Bros. cartoon produced in 3-D. The story for this one has Bugs finding Paul Bunyan's garden. Weird, I know, but bear with me. The vegetables in the garden are, like Bunyan, gigantic. So when Bugs finds giant carrots he thinks he's hit it rich. But then Bugs must contend with Bunyan's dog Smidgen (also a giant), who is in charge of watching over the garden. What follows are some funny lines and gags as Smidgen tries to chase Bugs away and save his master's carrots. The animation is really good and the 3-D trick shots are minimal so, even though the impact of those effects is diminished with normal viewing, it doesn't take you out of the cartoon enough to affect your enjoyment. It's a fun cartoon despite a somewhat abrupt ending. I'll give it points for being a little odd in a good way.
