they couldn't do this nowadays
30 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Everyone knows what happens when Elmer Fudd hunts Bugs Bunny, but "Wideo Wabbit" throws in a new twist: the hunt is the plot of a TV show. Of course, once Bugs realizes what's going on, he promptly starts doing his usual stuff. To a hilarious extent, I might add.

We get to see parodies of famous 1950s shows: "You Beat Your Wife", for instance. While we in the 21st century might not get all the references, the antics themselves are a hoot. And besides, who doesn't like to see TV spoofed? It brings to mind the fact that present-day TV seems to be dominated by reality shows, talking heads, and the cult of celebrity. When I see how they give Bugs an electric shock to get him out of his rabbit hole, it reminds me of the degrading things that people do to themselves or other people on reality shows.

But I digress. I really liked this cartoon, and you probably will too.
