What you would expect from a Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny cartoon, but it still has its moments.
29 June 2009 | by MightyzebraSee all my reviews

"Bunker Hill Bunny" has quite an old-fashioned appeal about it. It is one of the slightly older Looney Tunes cartoons and it is vaguely set in 1776. The jokes are usual for a YS and BB short, but there is the occasional witty speaking or slapstick joke.

Basically, Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam are two separate sides of the "Bagel" battle and they have their own forts and their own cannons and guns within their forts. Bugs Bunny, of course, fights against Yosemite Sam and the consequences are not overly surprising, but nevertheless pretty amusing to watch.

This cartoon moved along a little slowly, which may put off certain viewers. Bugs Bunny was particularly good in this episode (usually he is anyway when paired with Yosemite Sam - sometimes he is not). Also, the balance between the slapstick and speaking jokes is surprisingly similar. I might not watch it again, but it was good for a single viewing.

I recommend this to people who like traditional Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny Looney Tunes and to people who like a good balance of slapstick and speaking jokes. Enjoy "Bunker Hill Bunny"! :-)
