Survival island.
29 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Even thought the title would make you think otherwise, Yosemite Sam carries this cartoon. He stars as Sam Crusoe, stranded after a low tide and a high rock caused his ship to be wrecked. The use of space in this cartoon is as inspired as Sam's curse words. There is the shipwreck on the left, a tiny island with a hut in the middle and an even smaller island with one coconut tree on the right. When Sam wants a match, he has to go all the way to the ship (via some slippery rocks). If he is hungry, he has to brave the rocks on the other side of the island to get to the coconut tree. Both sides of the island are terrorized by a shark liveried varmint named Dopey Dick, who is determined enough to climb up trees after Crusoe. Luckily Sam has carved himself a hammer and a baseball bat out of driftwood to defend himself (and a surfboard too).

After a steady 20 year diet of tossed coconut salad, coconut milk and boiled coconuts, Sam can't stand coconuts no more. Just then Bugs Bunny arrives peddling a wooden crate with his ears, and he seems to have an unending supply of carrots on board. Of course Sam is not interested in carrots, he wants to cook the rabbit. A three way fight of survival ensues between, Sam, Bugs and Dopey (that ‘hammerheaded halibut'). When Bugs hides away on the shipwreck, Sam uses a balloon to get at him. But Dopey Dick continually gets in the way. Eventually the forces of nature start to interfere, forcing the mortal enemies to strike a deal. As always, Bugs decides he wants to go to San Francisco.
