Excessively vulnerable Bugs makes for an odd experience
1 October 2008 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Chuck Jones's 'Broomstick Bunny' is an odd cartoon. Bugs Bunny goes trick-or-treating disguised as a witch, unwittingly stealing the position of "ugliest of them all" from the former holder of the title, Witch Hazel (brilliantly voiced, as always, by June Foray). When she finally realises Bugs is a rabbit, Witch Hazel's thoughts turn to the rabbit's clavicle she needs for her latest potion. With its stylised, scrawled backgrounds, 'Broomstick Bunny' nicely establishes an off-kilter atmosphere and then fails to do much with it. Rather than outwitting his pursuer with his normal brand of heckling, Bugs simply runs for his life throughout the cartoon! At one point, in genuine fear for his life, he cries big, salty tears and it's unclear whether this is part of a ruse or actual emotion but, on the evidence of Bugs's persona in the rest of the cartoon, it would seem to be real. He comes across as a weak, easily tricked character (a carrot on a fishing rod? Come on!) right up until his closing double-pun wisecrack, which is the best thing in the whole cartoon. Although the creepy, angular look of 'Broomstick Bunny' sets up an unsettling atmosphere, the most troubling thing in the film is who exactly this Bugs Bunny impersonator is and what he's done with the real McCoy!
