The characters are not totally themselves but it is still pretty funny
10 April 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When he feels robbed by a `cow for beans' deal, Daffy discards his beans only to find they create a giant beanstalk. Daffy climbs it to find that Bugs is already halfway up it (his bed got caught as it grew) but he is damned if he will share the gold that surely awaits him. However when Daffy finds a giant Elmer Fudd he is all too keen for Bugs to be involved (especially in the crushing of the bones to make the bread!).

Despite his claims that there has never been a rabbit in the story of Jack & The Beanstalk (clearly forgetting his own cartoon version) Bugs gets involved here after Daffy drops his bed down the stalk. The film is pretty amusing as Bugs and Daffy semi-work together to try and evade the giant Fudd. Some of the gags don't work but the majority of them are pretty slick and amusing.

The characters are not as good as they should be though and they are lucky that the energy in the material covers it. Bugs is not as tricky as he should be and his comedy here is more physical than anything else. Daffy is OK if you like the greedy, more recent personae - however I much prefer the crazy little black duck. Fudd is the least like himself - his giant size somewhat taking away from his usual bumbling character.

Overall this is an OK short that is enjoyable due to the energetic script and the presence of three of Warner Brother's biggest characters (literally in the case of Fudd here!). It isn't as sharp as it could have been but it is still worth seeing.
