Storyline

Daffy Duck arrives at his vaudeville theatre to learn that Bugs Bunny has been given top billing over him. A competition ensues with Daffy out to get the top billing he deserves. Bugs seems to be the crowd favorite however as Daffy can't seem to best him in dancing, a magic act, juggling or in playing musical instruments. It pushes Daffy to extreme measures.

Wonderfully animated and lots of fun with a brilliant Daffy
6 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always adored Looney Tunes, and Show Biz Bugs is a big example of why. While not one of my absolute favourites, I still love it for many reasons. The animation is wonderful, everything is drawn with great smoothness and the colours are gorgeous. The standout sequence in this regard was the Tea for Two sequence, not in a while have I seen animation so elegant. The music is energetic, characterful and full of lush orchestration. The humour is just as effective. You may have seen some of the gags before, but I still find them hilarious. I especially like the gag with the xylophone and the explosive. The dialogue has its usual wit, with Daffy getting the best lines. The dancing is beautifully choreographed, Daffy's tap dance is quite nifty and one does wonder why he didn't garner the applause he ought to have done. I do agree that it is Daffy who steals the show, I just love how overly-competitive he is. Of course there are shorts that are more effective at seeing him at his best, which is mainly in manic mode, but he is still funny here. That is not to say that Bugs isn't good, he still outsmarts his foil, here it is Daffy, as you'd expect, but here is a Bugs who plays it straight rather than the crafty and arrogant Bugs we are more familiar with. For a cartoon with his name in it, he is not as prominent as Daffy which is why the title is somewhat ironic. Mel Blanc's vocals are superb as always. All in all, lots of fun. 9.5/10 Bethany Cox
