Storyline

Another in a series of Warners' economy cartoons featuring clips from previous Bugs Bunny-Yosemite Sam cartoons. After Sam is killed in each pursuit, he meets with the devil, who goads him into continuing to chase the bunny. Eventually, Sam balks and, donning a devil's outfit, tells the devil, "If you want him, you can get him yourself! I'm staying!" Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

The only original animation in this short is Sam falling and his parachute being filled with silverware. Everything else is either recycled from Hare Lift (1952), Roman Legion-Hare (1955), and Sahara Hare (1955), along with an episode of The Bugs Bunny Show (1960) which used this same plot. See more »

Basically it's just recycled material mixed around a lacklustre plot- final verdict:not needed!
30 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

This should have been so much better, what a disappointment. First of all it is completely unnecessary, basically as I said in my summary it is little more than recycled material with a lacklustre plot and underplayed character personas. Secondly, it is too bizarre for words, I have seen a few cartoons with one toon character going to hell or having something to do with the devil, and this is not one of the better ones. In fact, this is one of the most disappointing and one of the worst Looney Tunes cartoons I have seen.

What are my reasons for thinking so? The plot is really lacklustre, lacks structure and is very unevenly paced. Basically it is Yosemite doing something as he always does, he goes to hell, makes a pact with the devil to bring the rabbit for his freedom. Talk about wasted imagination! The recycled material from Roman Legion-Hare and Sahara Hare, two infinitely better cartoons, was a delight to see, but they were not well placed in the cartoon and didn't serve their purpose well.

The animation didn't fare much better either. In fact, the animation was better in the recycled material, that is not supposed to happen. What was wrong with the animation? Too clumsy and slipshod for my liking with lifeless colours and backgrounds and cheap editing. The music lacks energy and quirkiness here too, and the sound effects are not great at all. Then there is the dialogue, where was the wit, the sparkle, the lunacy and the fun? It was gone, there were attempts, but the thing was it wasn't funny. The sight gags aren't great either, too predictable and forced- the one with the parachute is the only one that kind of works, and the ending came of no real surprise. Bugs is very underplayed and woefully underused, Yosemite has no sparkle in him and the devil himself was just there really with dialogue we've all heard before.

In fact, the only redeeming quality was Mel Blanc's voice characterisations, which I knew it would be, because Blanc was the sort of voice actor who gave it everything he got no matter how lacklustre the material was. The rest is a misconceived mess, and to be ideally avoided. 1/10 for Blanc. Bethany Cox
