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>

The best Hazel short
29 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Witch Hazel is simply delighted to be the ugliest witch ever as told to her by her magic mirror. That is until Bugs Bunny shows up trick-or-treating. The mirror mistaking the rabbit's mask for his real face soon rescinds the title that he gave Hazel as ugliest and bestows it on Bugs. Which of course infuriates Hazel to no end. This is another great Looney Tunes short, and while I was never the biggest fan of Witch Hazel, this is one of the best cartoons with her in it. This animated short can be seen on Disc 1 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2. It also features an optional commentary by legendary voice actress June Foray who seems to remember quite a lot. Plus, the short has a musical score and effects only track as well.

My Grade: B+
