Storyline

Bugs and Daffy are tunneling their way to a vacation spot (with Bugs doing all the work, naturally), when a wrong turn lands them in a cave in the middle of the desert. Daffy's true nature once again shines through when the cave is discovered to be full of treasure. Daffy's glee quickly turns to terror, however, when Hassan the guard (whose only orders are "chop!") catches him with his hands in the gold. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Classic Looney Tunes cartoon
17 June 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I have made no secret of loving Looney Tunes, and I think Ali Baba Bunny is one of my favourites. It is hilarious and exciting, with a story that is simply great and the presence of two brilliant characters Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. The animation is gorgeous here, the whole cartoon is made up of superb colours and excellent character animation, and the music is delightful. What I love most is the humour, the dialogue is hilarious and has some surprisingly subtle moments too, Daffy here gets the best lines, and the sight gags are equally impressive. The supporting characters are fine, Hassan is a worthy adversary and the genie has his moments as well. Bugs is good here, but I think it is Daffy who steals the cartoon with his greedy manic attitude and witty remarks and this is all thanks to the one and only Mel Blanc who is simply genius once again. Overall, this Looney Tunes cartoon is a classic in my opinion. 10/10 Bethany Cox
