Did You Know?

Alternate Versions

When this cartoon aired on ABC (still retitled as "Prince Varmint"), the aforementioned explosives gag was edited thus: after Sam lights the fuses of the explosives, he manages to cross the still-lowered drawbridge and escape the explosives just before they blow up. However, he still looks much the worse for wear when he enters the castle. See more »

Sam the Viking
31 March 2016 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Once again, Bugs Bunny gets pitted against Yosemite Sam. Sam is a Viking attempting to raid a village but Bugs foils his plans at every step. I recall reading that Friz Freleng created Sam because he didn't consider Elmer Fudd a formidable opponent for Bugs, so he created the hot-headed cowboy. Sure enough, Sam proved just as incompetent. It was clear that by the time that "Prince Violent" got released, the Looney Tunes had passed their prime, but it's still a hoot to watch Sam's repeated misfortunes (occasionally, they even set up what's about to happen).

So, while it's far from the best cartoon, it's still fun to watch. I suspect that they had fun recording the voices and animating the cartoon.
