metal of honor
21 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

It's true that the Looney Tunes had pretty much passed their prime by the time that "Compressed Hare" came out, but you gotta love what Bugs Bunny does to Wile E. Coyote, who's taking a little break from chasing Road Runner. To be certain, I knew that something neat was coming up when "Powerhouse" started playing. Bugs's and Wile E.'s puns are obviously pretty hokey, but the end scene is probably one of the funniest that ever appeared in the Looney Tunes or Merrie Melodies series.

So, even if the series's heyday was over, the cartoons were still able to make us laugh. We definitely have, um, concrete evidence of that.

So yes, are you in, genius?
