Looney TV: Water, Water, Every Hare (1950-2)

"Water, Water, Every Hare", which has a 1950 copyright date, as you'll see, wasn't released until the spring of 1952. Chuck Jones basically took an earlier short and reworked it, keeping Bugs Bunny and the giant monster later known as Gossamer, but known as Rudolf here, but subbing out one mad scientist for another. This one, modeled after Boris Karloff, needs Bugs' brain for a giant robot.

It just happens that Bugs has been flooded out of his home during a storm........

To see Bugs so oblivious to the fact that he's underwater, at home, was unusual in and of itself, and it set the tone.

Rating: B.
