Quotes

[singing, as he cooks carrots]
Bugs Bunny: Oh carrots are divine, you get a dozen for a dime, it's magic. They fry, a song begins; they roast and I hear violins, it's magic. Why do I kid myself? Other loves that I have are all really few. When in my heart I know, the magic's my love for you.

A particularly good Bugs Bunny vs Yosemite Sam.
11 March 2010 | by MightyzebraSee all my reviews

In this Looney Tunes episode, we see Yosemite Sam assuming an unusual role (for him) as a rabbit hunter, a role that (as I know all Looney Tunes fans will know) Elmer Fudd usually takes, while Yosemite Sam is usually the gangster with a gun (or sword, possibly). Bugs Bunny is cooking carrots just outside his burrow and as he fools Elmer Fudd, he fools Yosemite Sam and does a good job of making sure the hunter does not catch him. However, will Bugs Bunny remain in his burrow..?

I thought this episode would be pretty predictable, as most Yosemite Sam vs Bugs Bunny episodes are (and because of that they are not my favourite type of Looney Tunes cartoons). However, some pretty unexpected gags and plot twists did occur, making this episode all the more entertaining. Possibly my favourite slapstick gag in this episode was the bubblegum was, the cartoon makers use it to lead Yosemite Sam into all sorts of scrapes. This episode did not contain as much speaking jokes as I would have liked, though, although neither do pretty much any of the YS vs BB episodes, as those types of cartoons rely almost entirely on slapstick.

I recommend the episode to people who like all Yosemite Sam vs Bugs Bunny cartoons and to people who prefer something a little less predictable in a Looney Tunes cartoon. Enjoy "Rabbit Every Monday"! :-)

P.S Near the beginning of the cartoon the Looney Tunes episode "Daffy Duck and Egghead" is referenced, when we see a member of a cinema audience starting to walk away. No-one is shot in the audience by a cartoon character in "Rabbit Every Monday", unlike in the episode where the gag was originally made.

8 and a half out of ten.
