Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: It is a well-known psychological fact that people's behavior is strongly affected by the way they dress. For instance, if we alter this gentleman's attire to something more romantic, certain changes in attitude may perhaps be detected.
[the man's business suit is changed to a pirate outfit]
Man: Batten down the keelhaul! Yahoo! Kill the women and children first! Blood! Gore! Spit 'em on the tatters!
Narrator: Even a change of hats will usually bring certain changes.

Narrator: ...

Obscure but hilarious classic!
29 June 2003 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is fantastic, to say the least. It had me laughing constantly through its seven minutes of pure entertainment. The animation is brilliant, and the expressions are unbelievable. Shame that it's really very obscure. The ending and Bugs's transformation into a gangster are stupendous, and an interesting plot only makes it better. Surprising that it was written by Tedd Pierce and not Michael Maltese, who seems to have written all of Jones's best cartoons. Fantastic stuff! Very highly recommended.
