Bugs "Jousts" Verbally and Literally
26 August 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Only in cartoons can you get a goofy set-up or premise like the following:

Bugs Bunny is out in the country sitting under a big hairdryer, as they used to have (maybe they still do, for all I know) at women's beauty salons? "Hey," says Bugs, "I just washed my ears and can't do a thing with them!"

Anyway, he's reading a big book called "Tales of Knighthood and Gallantry," when an acorn falls from the tree, clangs off the hairdryer and suddenly is transported back into the days of knights and castles. He wanders around in a daze when he's suddenly confronted with a huge knight on a horse with a lance stuck right into Bug's chest. "Uhhh, what's up, Duke?" asks our hero.

With that, we get introductions which are very funny, full of puns guaranteed to make you wince (I am "Sir Oh Of Kay, Sir Osis of the Liver, etc., etc.) Bugs, as usual, is not impressed nor scared and fires back a few one-liners at him. He names some of his friends: "Duke Of Ellington, Count of Basie, Earl Of Hines," etc. You get picture: this cartoon is full of wise cracks as only Bugs Bunny could deliver them!

There is nice artwork in here, too, not just silly gags. The drawings of the castle, surrounding area, the dragon, sorcerer and Merlin's wild house more are very colorful and look terrific on these "restored DVDs" put out by Warner Brothers.
