Storyline

King Arthur's kingdom and the knights of the Round Table are in the doldrums since the Dark Knight stole the Singing Sword and put it under the protection of a fire-breathing dragon. The king's jester, Bugs Bunny, says only a fool would try to steal it back, so the king orders him to try. The jester boldly enters the Dark Knight's castle, initially catching his adversaries napping, but when the Singing Sword wakes the knight and the dragon, can Bugs complete his mission? He's a clever fool. A moat, portcullis, and catapult all figure in the face off. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A good cartoon, but an Oscar-caliber effort? I'm not so sure about that

This short is the only Bugs Bunny short to grab an Oscar. While it's a good cartoon, I don't think it was the best cartoon of 1958. It wasn't even the best Bugs Bunny of 1958 (Hare-way To the Stars was). This is a very good cartoon, of course. It's just that there were much better ones released in 1958. Oh, well. At least Bugs got an Oscar, even if it was for something that wasn't among the better of "his" work. The same can be said for some acting winners. Recommended.
