"Ya double crossers...I'm a comin' back and I ain't comin' back to play marbles!"
4 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of my favourite Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam cartoons. It is a very entertaining one, but not as good as From Hare to Heir, Bugs Bunny Rides Again, Sahara Hare, Mutiny on the Bunny and Roman-Legion Hare. I didn't care for the animation here, generally the Looney Tunes shorts weren't as fluid or as luscious as the ones from the 40s and 50s and sadly Prince Violent was no exception with some colours that looked rather flat to me and while Sam is well animated Bugs is somewhat scratchy compared to normal. Excepting the hilarious scene at the end and when he is used as a boat, the pachyderm doesn't have that much of an interesting role here. However, the music is rousing and energetic yet lush and beautiful as well. The writing is as witty as you would expect, Bugs and Sam both have their fair share of great lines but Sam's final line is an absolute gem, possibly one of his best ever. The gags are not the most imaginative of their outings, but especially when Sam is flattened trying to knock the castle down and the bit with the dynamite it is still funny. I have also loved seeing the cleverness of arrogant yet likable Bugs and the stupidity of greedy and abrasive Sam, and both are used well and are great characters commanding the screen right from their first entrances. Mel Blanc is as outstanding as ever. All in all, a very good short but not one of my favourites. 8/10 Bethany Cox
