I also dream of a genie, but my Jeannie has blonde hair.
29 May 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, it's true: "Apes of Wrath" is basically a combination of two previous cartoons. There was "Gorilla My Dreams", in which Bugs Bunny gets adopted by a gorilla family (and the father wants to rip him to shreds), and "A Mouse Divided", in which the inebriated stork delivers some parents - in that case Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester - the wrong kind of baby (in that case a mouse) and the father wants to eat him. But it's still a really funny cartoon, just because of what happens to the father.

I originally saw this cartoon in the compilation film "Bugs Bunny's 3rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales", and I simply laughed at the events portrayed. Now that I'm old enough to analyze it, here's what I notice: the father is named Elvis. For me at least, that's weird to think about. I remember in "8 Mile", one of the rapper wannabes calls Eminem's character "Elvis" as an insult; after all, Elvis Presley sang the sort of music originally created by African-Americans. So now, we see a gorilla named Elvis in Africa, the land identified by Muhammad Ali as the home of the black man. Go figure!

I know, it makes no sense to mention Elvis Presley, Eminem and Muhammad Ali in a review of a Bugs Bunny cartoon. But no matter. It isn't the best cartoon, but still worth seeing.

And yes, I dream - or, more specifically, fantasize - about Jeannie from "I Dream of Jeannie". You gotta admit, she is REALLY HOT!
