Storyline

After getting lost on his vacation, Bugs ends up in the middle of Transylvania. He decides to get a room for the night in a nearby castle, which of course turns out to be home to a vampire. The bloodsucker is looking to make Bugs his next meal, but the bunny has a few tricks, as well as a few magic words, up his sleeve. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

The title is a pun on that of the 1940 hit song "PEnnsylvania Six-Five Thousand" by Glenn Miller, who quoted what is still today the phone number of his home venue at the time, the Hotel Pennsylvania in Manhattan. See more »

One of the better 1960s Bugs Bunny shorts
11 June 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This Bugs Bunny is one of the better Bugs shorts done in the 1960s, when Warners cartoons were starting to vary greatly in terms of quality. This one is reasonably good and can actually compare favorably with the earlier work. Having Chuck Jones and Maurice Noble helps. Cartoon fans may notice slight but notable similarities to a later Inspector Clouseau short, Transylvania Mania. The similarities can be explained by the fact that both shorts were written by John Dunn, who wrote for Warners, MGM and Depatie-Freleng in the 1960s! He was definitely kept busy. More verbal jokes than usual but a fair number of sight gags. Worth Watching. Recommended.
