Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to sea we go...
1 July 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Here it is, one of my favourite Bugs Bunny vs. Yosemite(here Shanghai) Sam cartoons. It aimed to be Looney Tunes fun, that's what we got. The animation is wonderful, it isn't the best looking cartoon out there, but the backgrounds are audacious enough and the characters are well drawn, especially Sam. The music is rousing, bombastic and energetic, almost like a Korngold film score, except with more quirky and tongue-in-cheek motifs. The dialogue is witty and hilarious, and the sight gags as are nearly always the case with Looney Tunes are clever and all of them work. Bugs is very good here, rascally and funny while Yosemite Sam is a superb foil and takes the laughs well. On top of this, Mel Blanc gives bravura voice characterisations. Overall, funny and witty, and just a must see. 10/10 Bethany Cox
