Trivia

Despite being credited for "voice characterization", Mel Blanc's only voice work in this short is that of the "coughing bum". There is no actual dialog in the entire short, one of only two cartoons (the other being "A Corny Concerto") in which Bugs does not speak. See more »

Underrated
29 June 2009 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I vaguely read the IMDb reviews for this cartoon before I watched it and there seemed to be quite a few negative comments, so I was not sure what I would think of it. However, I love it and it is one of my new favourites. The humour is nice and slow, very well done and you can still see quite a lot of Bugs Bunny's personality even though he does not say a single word, neither does anyone else. Usually I do not like the fact that certain Looney Tunes cartoons do not have enough speaking jokes, but in this episode it would have not been so good if there had been some. It is just funny the whole way through and the music is good. :-) The only negative thing I have to say about this gem is that the animation of Bugs was a bit scratchy, I prefer his smoother, more rounded style. Saying that - his collar was hilarious! :-)

I recommend this episode to people who like classical music, Bugs Bunny and for people who do not mind flies too much. Enjoy "Baton Bunny"! :-)
