"Now why was I trying to catch a train?"
29 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While not one of my favourites, I have always liked Hare-Less-Wolf. I have seen Bugs Bunny shorts with better animation quality, not that it is bad here, some of the backgrounds are quite detailed and the characters are drawn well but at the same time it lacks the vibrancy in the colours of for example the Hunting trilogy. However, the music is full to the brim with energy and manages to be catchy and beautiful. Te dialogue is fresh and very funny, I do like Charles M Wolf's "Now why was I trying to catch a train" and Bugs' "Now stop breathing on my fur" but the funniest part was the exchange, Open up the door or I'll uh--I'll uh. Gee, what will I do? /Knock it down?"/Yah, yeah. Knock it down. The gags are still as clever and imaginative as ever, I do love the one where Charles M Wolf is following the fuse all the way to the TMT, but it is the priceless hand grenade sequence that stays long in the memory. Bugs is intelligent and witty as you'd expect, while Charles M Wolf is rather endearing in his forgetfulness. June Foray is fine as Charles M Wolf's overbearing wife, however the bulk of Hare-Less-Wolf belongs to Mel Blanc and he is as ever wonderful. All in all, a very enjoyable short. 9/10 Bethany Cox
