Fun Bugs Bunny cartoon, if not spectacular
24 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Did I enjoy Napoleon Bunny-Part? Yes I did, it has weaknesses but it is definitely worth watching. The animation is uneven, it has nice backgrounds and colours but the characters look as though they were drawn in a rush. The story lacks a clear structure and is predictable, while the ending is rather abrupt.

But there are a lot of good things. The music alone has energy, the cartoon moves quickly, the sight gags are clever and the dialogue especially Bugs' asides is funny. Bugs is lots of fun, and Napoleon is a great adversary. But it is dim-witted but lovable Mugsy who steals the show. As always Mel Blanc is superb with the voices.

Overall, worth watching but not spectacular. 7/10 Bethany Cox
