"Don't sneeze you stupid Dragon, or you'll blow us to the moon", 7 February 2010
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

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
