Visuals And The Ending Are Both Great
27 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

You could tell it was the beginning of the "Beatnik era" as Bugs explains, "Man, dig this crazy beach!"

Actually, Bugs - as usual - dug too far. Thinking he had burrowed his way to Hawaii, he winds up in the Sahara instead. His comment above was made sarcastically as he couldn't find the ocean in this vast desert. Finally, he sees a tiny oasis and says, "So this is 'The Big Pond.'" Wow, this latter-days Bugs Bunny cartoon must have featured our favorite hare in his years of senility. Bugs is getting old!

The really wild humor in this funny cartoon comes into play when an Arab - Yosemite Sam, no less! - spots "footy prints all over my desert" and races his camel to see who's making them. Sam is called "Riff Raff" in this cartoon.

Anyway, "Riff Raff" and his camel - who takes terrible physical abuse by the verbally and physically-abusive "Arab" - try to chase down Bugs in the rest of the cartoon. He also rides an elephant but Bugs outsmarts him at every turn. The elephant-and-mouse scene was great.

Beautiful golden colors with all the orange sand, brown palm trees and yellow skies made this another real visual treat.

Another treat was the surprise ending, guaranteed to put a smile on the face of every Looney Tunes fan!
