Bugs Bunny in Baghdad
2 February 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Love animation, it was a big part of my life as a child, particularly Disney, Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, and still love it whether it's film, television or cartoons.

'A-Lad-in His Lamp' from personal opinion, and quite a few others it seems, is one of the best cartoons from Robert McKimson during a period where he had not just hit his stride but also was in his prime. A director who isn't one of the greats in animation but was responsible for his fair share of good to classic cartoons (though he was not immune to average and less ones), meaning that he is deserving of more credit than he gets.

Bugs is true to his very likeable, witty and hilarious persona that he is most famous for, while being just as much at home in a serious dangerous situation that he is here. The genie, wonderfully voiced by Jim Backus, is a riot, and while the villain is a less than subtle archetype he is great fun and a suitable threat.

Mel Blanc as always is stellar in the usual multiple roles, that he shows the masterly and unequalled ability to give individuality to each of them.

Animation is excellent, it's fluid in movement, vibrant in colour and very meticulous in detail. The story may be predictable, but it's beautifully paced with never a dull moment and strongly structured.

Carl Stalling's music is typically superb. It is as always lushly orchestrated, full of lively energy and characterful in rhythm, not only adding to the action but also enhancing it.

It's a very funny, often hilarious actually, cartoon too, with well-engineered gags, a great premise made the most out of and done inventively, witty dialogue and non-stop liveliness.

Overall, a McKimson and Bugs classic. 10/10 Bethany Cox
