"I'm a sailin' with the tide or my name ain't Shanghai Sam....and it is."
26 December 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Yosemite Sam (appropriately dubbed Shanghai Sam here) tricks Bugs Bunny into coming onto his ship. Then he conks him over the head and forces him to be his one-man crew. Bugs quickly adapts and takes control of the situation. Very funny Bugs cartoon with lots of great gags, some of which are familiar but fun ("I'm captain / You're captain"). I love the bit where Bugs writes graffiti on the deck just to rile ornery Sam up. Or when Bugs tricks Sam into digging for buried treasure on his ship. Sam's out of his league but it's so much fun to watch him be made a fool of repeatedly. Terrific animation, rousing music, and wonderful voicework. It's a fun Looney Tunes cartoon that everybody should enjoy.
