Knights Must Fall was pure hilarity of a Bugs Bunny cartoon
26 July 2010 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this very funny Bugs Bunny cartoon on YouTube. In this one, Bugs is a knight who accidentally upsets one of his mates by using the posterior of his suit as a garbage can (of all the...). So a joust is planned between the rabbit and Sir Pantsalot. Plenty of funny gags abound in this Friz Freleng outing including the appearance of a band that sounds familiarly hilarious of you know what I mean. There's also a few anachronistic gags that should keep one on one's toes and a kissing one that probably contributed to a public question of what team Bugs was playing during the '90s (as Jerry Seinfeld would say on an episode of his TV show, "Not that there's anything wrong with that!"). Anyway, on that note, Knights Must Fall is highly recommended.
