Good Bugs stuff but the production is not great
15 December 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny takes a wrong turn and ends up in the palace of Napoleon in the midst of battle plans. Mistaking the place for a movie theatre, Bugs accidentally upsets Napoleon and finds himself in a battle of wits in the palace grounds.

Bugs Bunny is a strong enough character and has a strong enough basic repertoire to overcome a potentially weak cartoon. Here this is a potentially weak cartoon. The animation is not great and even Bugs himself looks like he was drawn in a bit of a rush and Napoleon looking like the original drawing got crumpled up in someone's pocket.

The plot too is silly and (at the end) loses itself in it's own logic (was it real or a mental hospital - it can't have it both ways) but it creates a few funny moments. Bugs does OK despite having a few wobbly moments - his aside to Napoleon about the location of the troops on the map is very funny.

Overall this is a reasonable effort despite the many weaknesses. The plot lacks logic or structure and the animation is all very much of a muchness, but it has just enough going for it to be worth seeing. Poor ending though.
