A good cartoon, but an Oscar-caliber effort? I'm not so sure about that, 31 July 2001

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.
