Storyline

1896, Dawson, Alaska. Thus, the setting for Bugs' first of two encounters with Black Jacque Shellaque, a ruthless French-accented villain. A snow-covered Bugs walks into the saloon with a bagful of gold nuggets (which the rabbit calls "rocks"). Though the rocks have no value to Bugs, that means nothing to Jacque, who believes the bunny is out to get rich. Gags include Bugs' and Jacque's blackjack game, where the rabbit standing on one card (a "21" card) and Bugs substituting the bag of gold nuggets with a one filled with gun powder. The powder leaves a trail behind Jacque, who gloats at his "victory," but Bugs' lighting the trail aborts the villain's celebration. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Amusing old west cartoon
28 December 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

1896 in Dawson City gold rush fever is at a fever pitch with the roughest men in the West digging in the mountains. When Bugs Bunny arrives in a bar, complaining about the fact that he has been digging for carrots and could only find yellow rocks, he immediately gets the attention of all the people in the bar - in particular, wanted criminal Black Jacques.

At the start of this film I had assumed that this was a cartoon with Yosemite Sam and, in a way, I was right except Sam was not in this one. In his place is a French accented outlaw called Black Jacque who does a reasonable job of doing the same stuff as Sam would have done. Bugs is as good as he always is and is nice and tricky.

The routines and gags are the run of the mill fare that you get in these shorts. They aren't that imaginative but they are still funny enough to be watchable. Overall it's a good cartoon but you will have seen the same gags done better in other cartoons with Yosemite Sam as the support character.
