Storyline

Bugs and Daffy are tunneling their way to a vacation spot (with Bugs doing all the work, naturally), when a wrong turn lands them in a cave in the middle of the desert. Daffy's true nature once again shines through when the cave is discovered to be full of treasure. Daffy's glee quickly turns to terror, however, when Hassan the guard (whose only orders are "chop!") catches him with his hands in the gold. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

we must praise Allah (or whomever) for Chuck Jones' talent
6 June 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One fine day, the Sultan of Baghdad closes Sesame, and reminds guard Hassan: "Guard well this treasure, or may the jackal grow fat on thy carcass." Hassan affirms: "No one shall pass Hassan." However, neither man counted on two people, er, animals: Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. It just so happens that they accidentally burrow right into the cave. When they see where they've landed, Bugs tries to figure out where they took a wrong turn, while Daffy spots the treasure. His greedy side takes over, and after forcing Bugs back into the hole, Daffy proceeds to play in the treasure.

Meanwhile, Hassan has finally remembered the password. He goes after Daffy, while Bugs disguises himself as a genie and grants Hassan a wish. After they finally manage to get rid of that guard, Daffy accidentally finds the real genie, and...well, let's just say that they don't become friends. Bugs flees, of course.

Once again, Chuck Jones and company hit the comedy jackpot. This is what classic cartoons are all about. In my opinion, the Looney Tunes were always better than Disney.
