Looney TV: A-Lad-In His Lamp (1948)

Bugs Bunny is a modern day Aladdin in a send-up of that classic tale. "A-Lad-In His Lamp", produced in 1948, marks the cartoon debut of actor Jim Backus, better known, of course, for Mr. Magoo and Gilligan's Island. Jim voices the genie in one of his first roles.

Given the current political climate, I don't think this is getting much airplay nowadays, and, as such, sits in WB & Cartoon Network's vaults.

Rating: B-.
