Enjoyable stuff

Bugs Bunny awakes to find that his building has been taken over his building as their new hideout. Unwilling to share the house with gangster and with the gangsters unwilling to share with him, Bugs is forced to try and outwit Rocky and Mugsy in order to get rid of them and save himself from being `whacked'!

Another in the series of Warner Brother cartoons that spoofs the gangster movie cliché by using the character of Rocky to go up against the usual character in the usual sort of way. Here the material is reasonably good and creates several funny jokes - the dancing Bugs is one but my favourite is a running gag over a minute involving a series of lights and guns!

What makes it better than it sounds is great delivery from the characters. Rocky is hardly the best character as he is more about being a spoof than a character in his own right, however here his delivery is really good and his reactions are funny. Bugs is as good as ever and he really gives the mobsters a run for their money. His delivery combined with Rocky's reactions make this an enjoyable cartoon.

Overall this is an enjoyable short film that has good material that makes good use of the characters. Bugs is as good as usual and Rocky and Mugsy are better than they usually are and react well, making it funnier.
