Beware of Bunnies bearing puns
22 March 2004 | by Chip_douglasSee all my reviews

This lackluster Bugs Bunny vehicle is most notable for being the first (uncredited) appearance of Jim Backus anywhere, a year before he became the voice of Mr. Magoo. It certainly was not the first cartoon to have a pun on a-lad-in in it's title. While building a home (digging a tunnel with a shuffle), Bugs stumbles upon Aladdin's lamp. `Smoky' the Genie, who seems to have been a great inspiration to Johnny Carson, talks Bugs into visiting his estate in Baghdad and sends him off flying. He failed to inform Bugs the estate is now owned by the violent Galiph Hassen Pheffer.

Is this really the Bugs Bunny we know and love? Instead of outsmarting everybody else, he spends this cartoon being duped by the genie and delivers some of the worst puns ever (hare-plane, hare-em). The genie himself is too busy taking a bath or having diner to offer any help, so Bugs has to fend for himself trying to keep the lamp out of Galiph's hands. The most original jokes are to be found during the establishing shots when we first get to Baghdad. Apparently this cartoon has come under fire for the depiction of Iraqi, but then again is there any forties Warner effort left that has not offended anybody?
