Storyline

On Halloween night, Bugs Bunny goes out trick-or-treating dressed as a witch, wearing an ugly green mask. He comes to the creepy archaic mansion of Witch Hazel, who's making a batch of witch's brew. Hazel prides herself on being the ugliest witch of all and mistakes Bugs for a real witch. She becomes jealous of Bugs' ugliness and makes him a cup of Pretty Potion disguised as tea. Once Bugs removes his mask, Hazel soon learns that he's the remaining ingredient for her witch's brew. A chase soon ensues, but before Bugs is done for, Hazel drinks the Pretty Potion. Her worst nightmare comes true - she becomes young and beautiful. What's more, she flees from the genie in her magic mirror. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@henson.cc.wwu.edu>

Creepy and fun- my personal favourite Looney Tunes cartoon starring Witch Hazel
7 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

To summarise, this short is creepy and fun, and incidentally my personal favourite of the cartoons starring Witch Hazel. The animation here is stunning, and the story is top notch too. Bugs is still great, but it is Hazel who steals the show, her voice, her laugh, her mannerisms are all enough to make her truly memorable. The script is fine, but the sight gags are better I think, with a wonderful(and hilarious) ending. Also the part when Bugs tears up causing Hazel to cry as well almost made me do so too, Bugs's expression was so cute. Mel Blanc excels as always as Bugs, but June Foray steals the show with a bravura vocal performance as Witch Hazel. Overall, really fun to watch. 10/10 Bethany Cox
