This is what I done, boss!
19 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Sometimes I wonder how the Warner Bros. animation department got their cartoons past the censors. Anyone familiar with 1950s-1960s slang knows what "The Unmentionables" really means! The cartoon itself casts Bugs Bunny as FBI agent Elegant Mess (an obvious parody of Eliot Ness), investigating a crime syndicate in 1920s Chicago. Which means that he tricks Rocky and Mugsy into some embarrassing situations! Who knew that it could suck so much to be a mafioso?! This came out in the waning days of Warner Bros. cartoons, but Friz Freleng certainly had not lost his touch one bit. Bugs is funny as ever - especially in his Marilyn Monroe act. I've never watched "The Untouchables", and probably never will, so this is my only connection to it. Really funny!
