Looney TV: Bewitched Bunny (1954)

Bugs Bunny decides to take matters into his own hands when, while reading Hansel & Gretel, he sees a similar scene play out virtually right in front of him, as Witch Hazel (June Foray) charms a pair of children into her gingerbread house. Here's "Bewitched Bunny":

This wouldn't be the last time Bugs & Hazel's paths would cross, of course.

Rating: B.

I always enjoyed this one!

I used to wonder if the "Hansel/Hahn-sel" joke was significant to the culture of the times (perhaps imitating a famous film scene or comedian), but it turns out it was just a joke on the traditional German pronunciation versus the typical American one.

In the context of the story, it barely matters.
