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.
In a reference to the 3-D Bugs Bunny cartoon "Lumber Jack-Rabbit" (1954), the opening WB shield logo that normally zooms forward overshoots its mark and crashes into the screen before moving back into position See more »
I did like Hare and Loathing in Las Vegas in general, but I don't consider it great. I did find the cartoon a little too short and rushed though, and while I loved the Las Vegas setting and it started off lively and colourful it started to lack finesse particularly in the backgrounds and Yosemite Sam's character design towards the end, then again I don't think the fuzzy picture quality helped much. The voice acting also felt rather inconsistent. Bugs sounded fine and sounds very like Mel Blanc(the ultimate voice actor in the Looney Tunes cartoons) in the 80s. However Sam sounds off, his intonation in his iconic cursing is spot on, but there are other points especially before he is swept away by water where the voice feels overdone and almost like screaming. However, the music and sound effects are decent enough, the writing is very clever and funny(nobody curses like Yosemite Sam in my view) and the sight gags are memorable and timed well. Also the idea of the story is great and is done to good effect. All in all, not great but decent. 7/10 Bethany Cox
