Gently to hear, kindly to judge this Loony Tune
18 March 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Behold!

The Bard arrives at the setting of 'The Scottish Play'

(where even the mail box is shaped castle-like).

But woe, the players all are off to wager war,

lest our attention be turned to Witch Hazel and her brew 1002.

When the fourth ingredient, a bunny named Bugs takes leave,

"Zsa Zsa" gives chase on a broomstick from 'Fantasia' borrowed.

A duel follows of cackles, wits and Shakespearean quotes.

While all of the time, the bard takes notes



As becomes a character in this Renaissance setting,

Hazel offers many a self indulging aside to her public.

Had she spent on her hair a jot more care,

she might not have as many creatures living there.

Bugs Bunny proves adept at handling the words of the bard,

while ever ahead remaining of the old broad.

"T is the bard himself who sets up the final gag

(which is not as funny as it ought).



For never was there an ending with such a contrived pun

As that of Witch Hazel, and her Bugsy Bun.



A five out of ten must be my rating.
