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>

"Don't sneeze you stupid Dragon, or you'll blow us to the moon"
7 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an above decent cartoon, but it is not the best Bugs cartoon. I do agree with everyone here that while this is very enjoyable, I am not sure whether the Oscar was deserved or not. Personally the chief weakness for me was the dragon, while relevant to the story, he turned out pretty useless. The dialogue is good, but Yosemite gets the best lines somehow, and Bugs while on top form as well is a little underplayed here. That said, the animation is consistently excellent, the gags particularly with the drawbridge were very funny and the music is wonderful. And so are the vocals from Mel Blanc, who pretty much immortalises the Looney Tunes cartoons. Overall, not the best, but definitely one I'll see again. 8/10 Bethany Cox
