Pirate Yosemite Sam digs up a treasure chest which belongs to Bugs Bunny. Bugs boards Sam's ship and begins to heckle him. Bugs dresses as a singing mermaid, makes Sam walk the plank, and even makes Yosemite encounter a giant shark.
Experimental animators usually commit the mistake of thinking that experimentalism must be hermetical, non-objective, and abstract. Chuck Jones proves his point by making an animation film which brings characters and a storyline, but makes it look like a wild piece of experimental animation.
Without sound, the film would look like wild moving pieces. It's the narration and the soundtrack who do the trick. Weird non-objective mathematically abstract images who become human-like characters just with a little voice and music. Brilliant.
I'm personally impressed by this piece, since I saw it on TV as a kid, and instead of learning mathematics out of it, I decided to be an experimental animator. And I am one now :)
