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>

Rabbits of a round table.
14 January 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

We all know King Arthur, but what if Bugs Bunny was his court jester? Quite simply, the king - disappointed at his knights chickening out (in more way than one) - would send Bugs to fetch the Singing Sword kept by the Black Knight, aka Yosemite Sam. And that's just what happens in "Knighty Knight Bugs". Specifically, when Bugs finds the Singing Sword, it literally starts singing, and Sam comes after him with his pet dragon. But Bugs tricks them and takes over the castle, leading Sam to pull several embarrassing stunts attempting to re-enter. I really liked Sam's plan to "sail over the wall". All in all, they created another classic cartoon here.
