Rabbits of a round table., 14 January 2006
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

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.
