A visual delight and incredibly funny, one of the better Bugs and Yosemite Sam cartoons
31 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a huge Looney Tunes fan, and I love Sahara Hare. Not only is it incredibly funny, but it is a visual feast as well.

The animation here is wonderful. Sahara Hare contains some of the most detailed and colourful drawings in a Looney Tunes cartoon, the skies so blue and the sand beautiful and golden. And I liked the Arabian flavour of the music score here too, it gave a sense of authenticity.

The dialogue is razor-sharp and very funny. Even funnier are the visual gags, that like the best of Looney Tunes come by thick and fast, and delivered with real energy and verve by the immortal Mel Blanc.

I liked how Bugs was cool-headed Bugs was compared to Yosemite Sam, who physically and verbally abuses his poor camel here. And Daffy makes a small appearance here, in an ending that is unpredictable and clever. Overall, this is a great Looney Tunes cartoon, one of the better ones with Bugs and Yosemite Sam together. 10/10 Bethany Cox
