Bugs and Rocky make a great duo!

Utterly hilarious and absorbing from start to finish, Racketeer Rabbit is a must see for any Looney Tunes fan. Bugs is on top form, as is Rocky, and the two make an unmistakeably great duo, making the most of some truly juicy dialogue, hilarious sight gags and an interesting story. Also superb is the animation, the backgrounds are very nice and both Bugs and Rocky are drawn really well. The music is also great, rousing, jaunty, tongue-in-cheek yet beautiful as well. The pacing is just right, and Mel Blanc's vocal characterisations are nigh-on perfect, is there anything this immortal voice actor cannot do, he never fails to impress me. Overall, hilarious and a must-see! 10/10 Bethany Cox
