Hare And Loathing In Las Vegas

This is what happens when Sam's Casino drops from the sky and lands on Bugs Bunny's rabbit hole.

This Warner Brothers Animation production dates from 2003, long long long after the glory days of the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies directed by Friz Freleng, voiced by Mel Blanc and scored by Carl Stalling.

Peep the appearance by VT superfriend Vespajet at the craps table, Treasure Island's S.S. Brittania and a herd of saguaro cacti that absolutely positively do not live anywhere in the state of Nevada.

Comments & Discussion:

Thought I had seen them all--thanks for proving me wrong!! Goes to show you how great Mel Blanc was--four voice actors couldn't do the job he did. And of course, nothing matches up to the classic Chuck Jones animation--like Las Vegas, cartoons were better in the good old days!!

This cartoon makes no sense. Everyone knows ONE rabbit foot is lucky. But TWO rabbit feet cancel each other out. It's like crossing the fingers on BOTH hands. Thus the whole premise of Bugs' luck is a fallacy.

Anyway, I enjoyed the cameos from Treasure Island (the sailing ship) AND Paris (the not-so-subtle Eiffel Tower white flag) casinos! Also, I guess in 2003, the Hoover Dam still held back enough water to actually flood someone away. (Oh yeah: spoiler alert.)
