Storyline

Yosemite Sam from Outer Space comes to Earth to bring back an Earth creature (Bugs Bunny that is). However, all of Yosemite Sam's robots fail to do the work. Bugs mistakes one for a garbage can and puts garbage in it, and three others are unable to nab Bugs. Not even a personal one that meets a robot that Bugs Bunny made to dispose of it!

"You earth-creatures cannot manoeuvrer very well, can ya?"
4 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lighter than Hare is a fun and quite interesting cartoon, without being either one of the Bugs Bunny's', Yosemite Sam's or Fritz Freleng's best. It is initially odd to see Sam as a Martian sort of character rather than his usual guises, but it was interesting as it does work well. Lighter than Hare does start off a little slowly with the cartoon really getting going when Sam is on earth. While the backgrounds and character designs are detailed and beautifully drawn, the colours did seem on the flat side to me. However, the music is great especially the spookiness of the opening credits. There is some funny dialogue, but it's really in the gags where Lighter than Hare really sells in its humour especially the one with the dynamite and Sam in the robot. Bugs and Sam are their usual entertaining selves and Mel Blanc as ever is stellar. Overall, very good if not outstanding. 8/10 Bethany Cox
