Storyline

Bugs Bunny is enjoying his morning shower under a waterfall, singing "April Showers," when the water flow gets cut off. Bugs, thinking at first beavers are responsible, he climbs up the cliff to investigate. He meets Black Jacque Shellac, a ruthless lumberjack who wants to control the water supply. Bugs tricks the French-accented Jacque into removing a tiny rock in the dam to dislodge it. Jacque builds more dams, and prepares for what he thinks is the rabbit pulling more tricks; but of course Jacque and his dams get the worst end of a real shark and a barge full of dynamite. Certain Bugs will make more attempts to destroy his dam, the villainous Jacque fires his rifle at the waterfalls but winds up wrecking the rabbit's record player. Jacque builds "the perfect dam," one made of steel, but this time, the rabbit fights back with a series of his own. Using a cannon, Jacque proceeds to destroy them all, but his final attempt to destroy Grand Cooler Dam (thinking it's Bugs') ends with ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

An average episode with a few fun and non-average additions.
1 September 2009 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I felt this cartoon had a few very good things about it and a few not so-very good things, making it quite a mux-ip of a cartoon and one worth watching (aagh this is the first IMDb review of it!) Basically, in this cartoon, Bugs Bunny, as he often does, tricks his cartoon companion to remedy the thing that made Bugs cross and unhappy in the first place. In this case, he is annoyed with a Frenchman who is building a rock dam at the top of a waterfall which supplies not only Bugs' blessed shower, but the water he needs for himself and his carrots (oh, of course, we must not forget the carrots!). The ways in which he tricks the Frenchman into destroying the dams he makes &c are not very original, but funny enough all the same.

The things I liked about this cartoon that were unaverage: 1. The fact that a dam was included, it is not a theme that I would have thought of for a Bugs Bunny episode, as I do not associate him particularly with enjoying showers (as he does in this episode) and it worked pretty well for the cartoon. 2. The song that Bugs Bunny sings during his shower. The voice that Mel Blanc (almost definitely) puts on for Bugs Bunny does not sound like him. As the cartoon first started with the hearing of Bugs' singing, I thought it was a different character at first! 3. The ending. I wasn't expecting it and it was very entertaining. :-) The things I slightly disliked about this cartoon that were average: 1. The baddie was a Frenchman - why French? Why did the makers have to distinguish him to be French in particular? 2. The jokes that were pulled off between the Frenchman and Bugs were generally not particularly good and I was expecting them (I think part of the reason for this is that it was one of the much later episodes).

I recommend this to people who like Bugs Bunny in general, the same song repeated quite a bit and for people who think Bugs Bunny has a right to have water for himself and his carrots. Enjoy "Wet Hare"! :-)

P.S A little comment for the 2nd reviewer:

If you ever read this, I just want to let you know that I did very much enjoy this cartoon and I liked many things about it. The things I did not like about it quite as much appeal to different people, but this was a cartoon I liked watching and will almost definitely watch again. Thank you. Also, I am merely dissecting it because that what I like to do in reviews.
