Poorly animated with Bugs lacking a really good foil
13 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bugs is taking a bath in the forest when the Tasmanian Devil moves in. The devil pores hot sauce over Bugs who, believing himself cut, cries out for medical help. The devil runs to the hospital where he is bamboozled by Bugs in the guise of various doctors.

Made in the Sixties, this cartoon immediately sets out it's stall by visually lacking real quality in animation. The backgrounds and even the characters lack detail and are mostly in blank, blocked colours. This mars the cartoon a little as it feels like less effort has been put in.

In fairness the antics and trickery of Bugs are still quite amusing but somehow the cartoon failed to really tickle me. I think it was due to the dynamics of the relationship between the two lead characters rather than any lack of effort from Bugs' side. The Devil is simply quite a limited character, here he is given more grunting dialogue to open things up but even still he fails to really act as a good foil for Bugs' trickery.

The physical routines are OK but the involvement of some form of Frankenstein near the end doesn't really work – better are the bits where Bugs continually changes character and pushes Taz around the cartoon!

Overall this was enjoyable enough but the poor quality animation made it hard to get into and the weak partnership between the two didn't help things very much.
