The Abominable Snow Rabbit
16 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I liked this. It wasn't the best Looney Tunes cartoon ever, but it was very entertaining. It can be a little too quick, but the story is carefully-constructed in which Bugs makes yet another wrong turn and once again it is Daffy who suffers the consequences. The animation is crisp, colourful and smooth, with some vibrant colouring, and the music is fun. The dialogue has some very entertaining moments to it, especially with the Abominable Snowman when he mistakes Daffy for a rabbit and starts calling him George(a big lol moment), and the sight gags are clever too. Bugs is good here, a little stupider than he usually is but he is still arrogant and funny, and Daffy has some great lines and is easily annoyed here, no wonder come to think of it. The Abominable Snowman steals the cartoon though, he isn't scary but rather dim-witted and cute, and his voice does also remind me of Barney from the Flintstones. Once again, the voice work from Mel Blanc is excellent. Overall, funny and well-animated. 9/10 Bethany Cox
