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.

The best Bugs Bunny cartoon? Perhaps not. One of the funniest? To me, YES!
I love Looney Tunes and Bugs Bunny, and I loved Wet Hare. Maybe Bugs has done better, such as What's Opera Doc, Rabbit of Seville, Rhapsody Rabbit, Water Water Every Hare and The Hunting Trilogy. However, that doesn't stop Wet Hare from being hilarious and from in my opinion being one of the better "later" Bugs cartoon. Bugs is on top form, witty, arrogant and wise-cracking and Jacques is an ideal foil. Both characters are voiced perfectly by Mel Blanc. The animation is not the most luscious I've seen from a Looney Tunes cartoon, but it is very colourful and the music is typically energetic. The story is fast-paced and engaging, the writing is full of puns, wit and freshness and the sight gags come thick and fast and is just as inspired as the writing. In conclusion, maybe not Bugs' best, but definitely one I'd see again. 10/10 Bethany Cox
