Reviews and Comments

From tashlinfan44 :

What a cartoon! As Greg Ford states, this is truly a Daffy vehicle and one of Foster’s best! This cartoon may perfectly sum up the relationship between Bugs and Daffy: Bugs is always able to win everyone over, and avoids all trouble and explosions unintentionally, but Daffy isn’t able to ever win his audience over, and he gets the big bangs!
