A decent cartoon, but not one of Bugs' best
28 August 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I adore Looney Tunes and Bugs Bunny, and while I loved Forward March Hare as a kid I only like it now. I also think that the story is rather silly, the idea of not being able to tell the difference between a human and a rabbit is rather hard to swallow, and instead of the arrogant, intelligent and sharp-witted personality that he is so famous for he is rather obtuse and somewhat of a buffoon, messing things up a lot of the time and not realising. However, the animation is wonderful especially in the beautiful silhouetted opening sequence, though the fluidity and lavish colours are apparent also in the military sequences. The music score is terrific, characterful and enhances the action brilliantly, and the dialogue is fresh and witty, "So they're inducting rabbits" is just one of the jewels. Not all the gags work, but there are a fair few that do, the sequence with the eye-chart shows briefly Bugs in the persona we know and love, and Bugs knocking all the soldiers over, the sergeant exploding and Bugs running around with a baseball bat are just as effective. The Sergeant is a great character, while Mel Blanc's voice work is brilliant. All in all, decent but not great. 7/10 Bethany Cox
