Shows a real lack of pride in production
23 November 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Daffy Duck is hunting Bugs Bunny in the height of winter time. However Bugs has no intention of being killed so that Daffy can have a warm winter fur and uses the conditions to his advantages, including a group of bears trying to hibernate.

Despite a clever little reference in the title, this cartoon is actually not up to a great deal. The animation is average at best and it gives the characters a real cheap feel to see them so basically drawn. It gave me the impression that the cartoon was rushed together and maybe not given as much care and attention as it should have had. Both Daffy and Bugs look very basic, like they have no touches to them but have just been traced from a more complex drawing!

The plot is average, personally I wasn't really feeling the whole Daffy as a hunter thing and it didn't really work for me. It isn't used to nay great effect and Bugs wasn't really as slippery and funny as he can be. A big problem for me was the characters of the two leads – they didn't seem to actually have any. Certainly neither was really used well and they could easily have been any old character for all the uniqueness either brought to the piece.

Overall the quality of animation should ring bells – it shows a lack of care which can also be seen in the plot, the characters and the comedy. Funny title, not much else.
