When Bugs rings the castle doorbell, the chimes play "Funeral March of a Marionette," the opening notes of the TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955). See more »


During the entire cartoon, any character saying "abracadabra" turns the Count into a bat and saying "hocus pocus" turns the Count back into his normal self. However, the very first time the Count utters "hocus pocus," it turns him into a bat. See more »

Fantastic Artwork And Many Great Gags
3 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You (and Bugs Bunny) never know where Bugs is going to wind up when he goes for one of his occasional underground trips. He usually winds up saying, "I must have made a wrong turn at Albuquerque." Here, Bugs winds up on top of a stone mountain in "Pittsburghe, Transylvania" (actually spelling in the cartoon.)

The first "person" Bugs meets is a two-headed female vulture (named "Emily" and "Agatha") who has two hats on! "Doesn't he look delicious," says one of the heads to the other. Bugs decides to scram and to "head up to that hotel over there," a big haunted house where "Count Bloodcount" resides.

From that point on, there are some great sight gags such as noose for a doorbell ringer, a picture on the wall of "mother" as an upside-down bat and all the Gothic-bizarre "interesting decor" (as Bugs puts it) in the castle. This cartoon is a great feast for the eyes! Check out the titles of all the books on the shelf about Bugs' bed.

The artwork and colors in this restored cartoon are fabulous; some of the best I've ever seen. So, with the tons of fun sights and dialog by Bugs and beautiful artwork, it all adds up to one of Mr. Bunny's best cartoons for sheer enjoyment.
