"Rest is good for the blood."
31 October 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Chuck Jones' last Bugs Bunny short in the classic era is a fun one with a cool setting. Bugs is traveling to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (underground, of course) but somehow winds up in Pittsburghe, Transylvania. There he makes his way to a spooky old castle where he meets up with his nemesis in this cartoon: vampire Count Blood Count. The Count tries repeatedly to bite Bugs but finds himself bested by, of all things, magic words Bugs happens to read in a book. A funny short with some good gags and lines. Being that this is a '60s Looney Tunes, the animation is not the greatest. But it is far from the worst I've seen from this period. The use of dark colors and shadows goes a long way to help the cartoon's look. Good voice work from Mel Blanc, Julie Bennett, and Ben Frommer. Surprisingly decent score from Bill Lava. One of the best Bugs cartoons of the 1960s. Not that there's a lot of competition.
