Show him the money!
28 February 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

It seems like in the Looney Tunes cartoons, Daffy Duck was usually the one whose greed proved detrimental to him. But in "Honey's Money", it's none other than Yosemite Sam. When he learns of a rich widow, he decides to meet her. Then, when he meets her, he sees that she's twice his size, as is her son. But Sam has to keep remembering that there's money in the deal...even if bad things have to happen to him! I thought that it was very interesting to see Sam in a lead role, as opposed to playing second banana to Bugs Bunny. But even aside from that, this is just a really hilarious cartoon, what with some of the things happening to Sam. I also noticed that June Foray (best known as the voice of Rocky the Squirrel) got billing alongside Mel Blanc. Usually, Mel Blanc was the only one who got billing. They both did very well.
