Quotes

Bugs Bunny: [as Wile E. Coyote is tying him to a spit] I'm your new neighbor from down the street. I brung you those carrots you asked for. Personally, I don't think a stew is a stew without carrots.
[Sniffs]
Bugs Bunny: Mmm, smells good. What kind of stew is it?
[Dips his ear in the pot and tastes it]
Bugs Bunny: Mmm-mmm. Rabbit ear stew. Very good too. Er, I'd love to stay for lunch, but it appears I'm all tied up this morning.
Wile E. Coyote: Oh, you're going to stay for lunch. You are lunch. Now, what kind of wine goes best with wild game? You ...

I actually liked it
28 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is hardly Chuck Jones's finest hour, but I wouldn't go to say it was mediocre either. I liked it, even with its predictable story and uneven pacing. The animation is very good though, nice backgrounds and both Bugs and Coyote are drawn well. The music has enough energy to be enjoyed, while there are one or two lame puns the dialogue is nice and witty on the whole and the gags are competent with the final one being the most memorable. Bugs and Coyote work well together, and both characters are once again brilliantly voiced by Mel Blanc, who very rarely gives a bad vocal performance. Overall, not fantastic but actually it is worth watching. 7/10 Bethany Cox
