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>

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. Hee hee hee hee!
26 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

One of the great things about the Looney Tunes cartoons was how they put spins on the real world and popular culture. They do that in "Broom-Stick Bunny", as perpetually cackling Witch Hazel gets all vain about being the ugliest witch of all, and finds that another witch (actually Bugs Bunny in his Halloween costume) is uglier. So, she sets - or rather flies - about trying to get him. But Bugs has his own plans, natch. Most likely involving Hazel's mirror (hint: this mirror is supposed to say that Hazel is the ugliest of all).

So, this might not be the best Looney Tunes cartoon ever, but it's a real pleasure to watch. Mel Blanc and June Foray are a great voice combo.
