Looney Tunes meets World War II
24 August 2016 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Not one of my favourite Looney Tunes and Bugs Bunny cartoons by all means, with some of the material being of the time (also prefer cartoons with a wittier touch rather than a propaganda touch) and younger audiences may find some of 'Herr Meets Hare' goes over their heads or a touch heavy-handed.

That's understandable, because the references that 'Herr Meets Hare' has are less than subtle. Again though this is part of the fun (and to be honest the people that are referenced are as far from subtle as one can possibly get), and the cartoon did have balls for doing this when World War II was still very much happening, with the Nazis still terrorising innocent people and Hitler still in power.

'Herr Meets Hare' has beautiful animation, colourful, meticulously detailed, rich and very smooth and fluid. It's lusciously and energetically scored too, and it was great to hear the Venusberg theme from Wagner's 'Tannhauser', pre-dating one of the greatest cartoons in history 'What's Opera Doc' which used the same music to iconic and even more memorable effect. The music not only adds so much but enhances the action too.

While not as hysterical as other Looney Tunes efforts, the dialogue is fresh and witty and the gags are no less than very funny, the best bits hilarious. The vulture and the scene with Hitler do raise some quite big laughs, but even funnier are Bugs' brilliant if obvious disguises (always amazing that his opponents nearly always fall for them so easily), especially the Hitler and Brunnhilde guises.

Bugs leads the cartoon brilliantly, such a charismatic and funny character, and Goehring is a very worthy and effective opponent. Mel Blanc does impeccably as ever with the vocals, is there anything this enviously talented man cannot do? All in all, very entertaining cartoon if not one of my favourites. 8/10 Bethany Cox
