Sorry, but I'm having an old friend for dinner
23 March 2016 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the latter Bugs Bunny cartoons - and the shortest one ever produced - borrows some plot points from "Slick Hare" and "Roman Legion-Hare". Yosemite Sam is the disgruntled cook to a spoiled king (a caricature of Charles Laughton*) who gets the order to prepare hasenpfeffer, whose main ingredient is rabbit. Guess which rabbit shows up as the potential ingredient! "Shishkabugs" is far from the best Looney Tunes cartoon, but you gotta love the tricks that Bugs plays on Sam (especially after Sam assumes that the dish is now prepared correctly). When Sam invites Bugs in and tells him "the king wants to have you for dinner", it reminded me of the final line in "Silence of the Lambs". It just goes to show why these cartoons were some of the best ever produced.

*Emperor Nero in "Roman Legion-Hare" was also a caricature of Charles Laughton. I wonder if anyone in Hollywood knew of Laughton's sexual orientation back then (he got married to Elsa Lanchester to hide his homosexuality).
