Not every one has to be high art. Sometimes a few good gags will do the trick.
"Oh the leetle man from the dra-aft board is coming to seeeee meeee~ ... Wait, the LITTLE MAN FROM THE DRAFT BOARD?!" Still one of my favorites.
It initially seems obnoxiously jingoistic with all the literal flag waving and marching. But this being Daffy Duck, it's all for ironic effect, of course. I love the little man from the Draft Board, a meek little fellow waddling forward played as extreme menace. And if you love Daffy because of his frantic hysteria, and who doesn't, then this one has it in spades.
Hare Conditioned (1945)
Classic Bugs Bunny. One of my personal favorites. Nothing extraordinary, but some good laughs to be had!
Not seen this one before. The ending is uninspired, but the animation is brilliant, and I particularly loved the 'ouch-ouch-ouch' gag.
Ah, Bugs Bunny... I miss those days when the animation was smooth and the animators took pride in their work. Not like the cartoons nowadays, with their new-fangled slap-dash Flash animation that fills in all the frames between the key frames, and the kids these days, no respect for the classics, no respect for their elders, movies should've stopped at the talkies... You kids get off of my damn lawn. </old fart>
Anywho, classic with plenty of sight gags and in-jokes that the adults of the time would get, and what's a Bugs Bunny cartoon without cross-dressing? XD
It's in every second cartoon.
However, when Bugs' antagonist is female (and there is only one, Witch Hazel) *every* gag seems dirty.
Some funny stuff there. I liked the different setting and the opening, with Bugs Bunny, for once in his life, hopping around like a bunny was a riot. I also loved the cross-dressing scene. "Oh, what a caution," Bugs says during his hysterical breakdown. Fantastic.
