Trivia

The Abominable Snowman character is inspired by Lon Chaney Jr.'s performance in Of Mice and Men (1939). This may also explains why he calls all other characters George. See more »

Bugs turns left at Alberquerque
29 October 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

In this very funny Looney Tunes episode, Bugs Bunny has taken Daffy Duck somewhere or other and has ended up miles from home in the Himalayas. Bugs Bunny is pretty anxious and Daffy is also very annoyed. Just when things start to become better, a very mad yeti arrives on the scene. He likes bunny rabbits and thinks Daffy is one...

I was surprised this episode was so funny, as usually I do not particularly enjoy episodes where Daffy duck is greedy. However, I very much enjoyed this episode for his and Bugs' brilliant quotes, the mad yeti, the layout of the episode and the turn-out.

One theme about this episode to consider is that here, Bugs Bunny is quite stupid, taking Daffy Duck to a place a thousand miles from Palm Springs (where the pair originally wanted to go). Bugs Bunny is usually thought of as a clever character, although a great deal of the time he can be almost as stupid as Daffy. Hmm...

This is well worth spending seven or so minutes for, recommended to the average Looney Tunes fans and people who like mad yetis.

8 and a half out of ten.
