Quotes

[after missing the usual "left turn at Albuquerque," Bugs finds himself in Camelot, dodging a fire-breathing dragon]
Bugs Bunny: Never again, never *never* again, do I take travel hints from Ray Bradbury! Huh! Him and his short cuts! The *last* time I took Bradbury's advice, I ended up in the 25th century as a Martian monocle... on *Mars* yet! *This* time, I end up in some kinda lizard factory!

TRULY ORIGINAL CHUCK JONES SHORT SUBJECT
9 August 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

"A Connecticut Rabbit in King Arthur's Court", which is retitled for home video as "Bugs Bunny in King Arthur's Court", is a real treat for all Looney Tunes fans. Chuck Jones takes the original Mark Twain novel and turns it upside down. This is not the novel, but a truly original reworking of it.

Bugs Bunny is the "Connecticut Yankee", which in itself is kind of odd because Bugs is from Brooklyn, NEW YORK, but never mind, we'll except the premise. Daffy Duck is King Arthur, Porky Pig is Sir Loin of Pork and Yosemite Sam is the Black Knight. The story is so well known that I won't bother retelling it here.

This short subject is smart, funny and original. This in itself is amazing since most animation is often uninspired, particularly when it comes from literature. But Chuck Jones, by planting the Looney Tunes characters into the plot and by making this 100% new footage, rather than most of the TV specials which are edited from the shorts, has made one of the most memorable TV specials ever.

**** out of 4 stars
