Storyline

While walking through the woods, Bugs Bunny stumbles into the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel. Seeing the children in serious danger, he decides to become involved and rescue the greedy pair, disguised as a truant officer. However, no good deed goes unpunished as the rather hungry witch decides that a rabbit would be an acceptable substitute ingredient for her dinner. Fortunately, a good deed is its own reward as Bugs uses her vase of magic powder to transform her into a gorgeous female bunny with a feminine voice but Hazel's laugh. As he gets ready to leave with the bunny beauty, Bugs looks at the audience and comments: "Ah sure, I know. But aren't they all witches inside?". Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@henson.cc.wwu.edu>

cute retelling of Hansel and Gretel
14 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I liked the cartoons that featured Bugs and Witch Hazel--in this case she is voiced by Bea Benaderet while in others she's voiced by June Foray. I think that I actually liked this one best because of its depiction of Hansel and Gretel. They are pretty much simple-minded nincompoops that are completely oblivious to the impending danger. All they want to do is eat and they are just plain silly fun to watch. They are only saved by the intervention of Bugs who FINALLY convinces them to run away while he does battle with the evil witch. While the animation of this cartoon isn't the best, the story is a delight and it's a wonderful version of the old Grimm fairy tale.
