Love the ending
14 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Very similar to the earlier Gorilla My Dreams, this Looney Tunes short has Bugs Bunny being hit over the head and delivered to a gorilla family by a drunken stork who lost the baby they were supposed to receive. The mother gorilla loves Bugs but the father doesn't like him one bit. This leads to some humorous gags and Bugs playing up the baby role to the hilt just to annoy the gorilla dad. The animation is bright and colorful with well-drawn characters and backgrounds. The music is lively and fun. Wonderful voice work from the incomparable Mel Blanc and a particularly good showcase for June Foray. It's not one of the best Bugs shorts I've seen but it's enjoyable enough. The ending is the best part.
