Hark! What yonder carrot chompeth Bugs? And which witch is which?
19 October 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

As his usual rule-trashing, New York-attitude self - despite being in Renaissance-era Scotland - Bugs Bunny pulls various tricks to escape cackling Witch Hazel, who wants very much to turn him into rabbit stew. All the while, William Shakespeare records everything that happens. I will say that I predicted the ending of "A Witch's Tangled Hare" a few seconds before it happened, so maybe that weakened the cartoon just a little bit. But just seeing all of Bugs's gags more than makes up for that, especially when they reach the castle (it probably does cost a lot to heat a place like that). So, maybe it's not the best Looney Tunes cartoon ever, but still worth seeing.

Rabbit! Hee hee hee hee!
