Bugs Bunny is trying to reach a peanut festival in Georgia, but he has instead time traveled to Camelot in the year 526. He blames faulty directions from Ray Bradbury, and mentions having previously time traveled to 25th-century Mars thanks to Bradbury. Bugs at first thinks that he has landed in Pittsburgh, but is informed that he is in Camelot by Sir Elmer of Fudde, a brave knight. The knight has been hunting for a dragon, and figures that Bugs is a transformed dragon. He captures Bugs and takes him to the castle of king Arthur, where Bugs is presented to Arthur, King of England (played by Daffy Duck), and court magician Merlin of Monroe (played by Yosemite Sam). Merlin wants Bugs drawn and quartered, but Bugs uses a solar eclipse to fool the locals that he can affect the sun's movements. He is released and Arthur grants him custody of an actual fire-breathing dragon. Bugs establishes his own armor-making factory, and names it Acme. In 528, his enemy Elmer challenges to a duel, and Merlin has allied with Elmer. Bugs much achieve victory to secure his position in Camelot. —Dimos I
Great TV special.
A great TV special that recaptured some of the magic from the old days. Hard to find today in decent quality as most later home video releases were in VHS, it can be found in good quality in the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD sets. Bugs ends up in midevil times and the King, the Wizard, and the Knight are all some of Bugs Bunnys old pals like Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, and Elmer Fudd. Very rarely shown anymore on TV. Go searching for this one and enjoy. It's well worth the trouble to find it. Some of Mel Blancs last times voicing many of the characters. This was worthy of theatrical release but aired on TV in 1978 and was rebroadcast a couple more times in the 80s but not since. A great Looney Tunes gem that adults and kids alike will love.
