I'm Bunny/I'm Claude
28 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although Bunny and Cluade isn't that well known, I think it is a lot of fun and very underrated. It is too short though, and I think the roadblock joke could have been timed better and perhaps a crack at the corniness of it wouldn't have gone amiss.

However, I loved the wacky animation style. Bunny and Claude mayn't have the smoothest or most colourful animation, but as I've said I loved its wackiness, the backgrounds and colours were still quite nice and the characters looked good too.

There is also some truly rootin' tootin' music. Not just the main theme, which wonderfully accompanied the hilarious beginning, but also the switch between 60s organ-guitar groove music to the banjo style, two styles that are not easy to pull off especially when alternated together but somehow Lava makes it work. I have to say also the sound effects are great to spot and decent-sounding on the ear.

The jokes and dialogue are a treat. While the dialogue is fun, Bunny and Claude is an example of a cartoon that is sight gag driven. And boy are they fun, in fact the roadblock is the only one that doesn't quite work. The one with the mouse and the one with the sheriff dressed up as a carrot to trap Bunny and Claude however are hoots. I equally loved the (very) fast pace and original story.

The characters are great fun and zany. In all honesty though the sly as foxes titular characters were more likable than the sheriff, who is a slightly cliché but fun character, and vocal wise sounds like a criss-cross of Foghorn Leghorn and Yosemite Sam. The voice work from Mel Blanc and Pat Woodell is also excellent.

So in conclusion, imperfect but a lot of fun. 8/10 Bethany Cox
