The Wabbit Who Came to Supper
3 October 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

The Wabbit Who Came to Supper by all means is not my favourite Looney Tunes cartoon but I did find it very entertaining. The cartoon does start off slow and I too found the closing gag on the weak side, I just found it abrupt. However, the animation is great especially on DVD, where the colours are so lush and the interiors of Elmer's house really nicely done. The only minor disappointment animation-wise is that Bugs occasionally looks odd. The music as always from Carl Stalling is energetic and quirky, the dialogue is witty and funny and the sight gags are clever especially the premature New Year gag. I also liked it when Elmer had Bugs in his arms singing to him and when Bugs tries to pettily dupe him out of a nickel. Bugs is great fun, rascally yet likable, while Elmer while dim-witted is really quite endearing. Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan once again are stellar with the voice work. The story isn't exactly original, but it is good, and overall, this cartoon is entertaining. 8/10 Bethany Cox
