Pretty neat and entertaining
21 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I will always watch anything with Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam, Bugs' arrogant yet likable personality contrasts perfectly always with Sam's abrasive and greedy one. Piker's Peak is a good short, it doesn't show the two at their best with a slightly slow start and I didn't think much of the stock music at the end. However, the two characters are absolutely great, Sam is the constant butt of the joke and he takes it well while allowing his distinctive persona to come through. Bugs as ever is likable with some fun lines. The dialogue is enough to make you smile and laugh, I especially like "What's up doc?"/"Not what's up, what's down"(and what follows after), while the gags are clever and well timed especially the repeated gag with the band playing, the sequence with the rescue dog and one of the longest screams I've heard in an animation(gives Gopher from The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh show a run for his money). The animation is detailed and colourful, though I do remember my VHS before it broke had sharper picture quality than the version on Youtube, while the music and pacing sparkle with energy, as does Mel Blanc's voice work. All in all, entertaining short but not the best that Bugs and Sam have offered. 8/10 Bethany Cox
