Yosemite Sam: [upset] Ooh, what do you want?
Bugs Bunny: Good afternoon. Let me introduce myself as one of the woodland creatures residing in the King's forest, and being that there is such a close relationship, I assume it would not be too improper to borrow a cup of diced carrots, huh?

The cartoon which taught a generation about "hasenpfeffer"
23 June 2012 | by (Arlington Heights, IL) – See all my reviews

This is one of those odd cartoons which tend to stick with you from childhood. What I mainly remembered about it was Mel Blanc's Charles Laughton-type king, an overstuffed glutton with enormous lips and an insatiable demand for hasenpfeffer. When I revisited it as an adult, I was surprised to find how (relatively) recent it was. Clearly, this is a later-period Bugs Bunny cartoon. The whole thing looks and sounds a little chintzy and low-budget, not nearly as lush as the Looney Tunes of previous decades. But you know what? The darned thing still works, namely due to the acting and writing. Blanc is very funny in all three roles here (there are only 3 speaking parts, along with a couple of mute, bumbling guards who add some nice pantomime comedy). I especially liked the opening sequence, with Yosemite Sam making his way up the long, winding path to the castle and grumbling to himself the whole time. I guess the very idea of Sam as a royal chef is funny, since it's so alien to his nature.
