Storyline

On Halloween night, Bugs Bunny goes out trick-or-treating dressed as a witch, wearing an ugly green mask. He comes to the creepy archaic mansion of Witch Hazel, who's making a batch of witch's brew. Hazel prides herself on being the ugliest witch of all and mistakes Bugs for a real witch. She becomes jealous of Bugs' ugliness and makes him a cup of Pretty Potion disguised as tea. Once Bugs removes his mask, Hazel soon learns that he's the remaining ingredient for her witch's brew. A chase soon ensues, but before Bugs is done for, Hazel drinks the Pretty Potion. Her worst nightmare comes true - she becomes young and beautiful. What's more, she flees from the genie in her magic mirror. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@henson.cc.wwu.edu>

Artwork & Story A Real 'Treat'
13 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's Halloween and we are at the home of "Witch Hazel" who proudly displays her "diploma" on the wall which reads, "Malevolent Order of Witches - A. F. of Elves."

The first thing you notice is the great artwork: cool drawings of the inside of the house and great colors. These restoration jobs on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVDs are tremendous.

Bugs is out trick-or-treating and, of course, stops at Hazel's house. Bugs is wearing a witch's mask, too. Bugs asks the "lady" if she has anything for a "little witch." Hmmm, thinks Hazel, "I don't remember seeing her at any of the union meetings." Hazel winds up thinking the visitor is so little and ugly - which is a compliment. She winds up trying to find out Bugs' secret to being so ugly.

The humorous dialog making ugly the ideal and beauty the opposite, Hazel then discovering it's not another witch but a rabbit and how she reacts......and those wild colors all make this a lot of fun to watch. It's another Bugs Bunny winner.
