| I'm not sure what to make of this cartoon.
"Big Top Bunny" is an odd (in a negative way) Bugs Bunny cartoon - and I'm sure many people think the reason is because Robert McKimson directed it. Personally, I think that theory is ridiculous. All the other Looney Tunes directors have produced equally odd (in a negative way) cartoons sometime or other. Robert McKimson is a very good Looney Tunes director, but personally I think this is one of his weaker cartoons (his second weakest, in my opinion).

Despite its oddities (which I will list later), "Big Top Bunny" is still a cartoon worth watching, even if only once. Bugs Bunny is a good character here, not disappointing and as likable as ever. The animation is reasonable as well, but not something to rant on about (just a good quality). Parts of the humour are laughable, but overall, this cartoon is not the funniest Looney Tune ever.

The oddities of the cartoon are Bug's side character (who is a rather annoying, drawling circus bear), the length of the cartoon (it feels too short even though it is average Looney Tune length) and a deal of the jokes are also unfunny and odd as well.

In this cartoon, Bruno the bear, a circus bear, is complimenting his lovely circus life, when he hears that there will be a new animal in the ring - an acrobatic rabbit. Bruno is furious that he should be paired alongside a "leetle rabbit" and bears a grudge against Bugs Bunny when they first meet. Bugs Bunny is determined to earn his revenge against this annoying bear...

I recommend this cartoon to people who enjoy the repetitive, slapsticky side of Looney Tunes and to people who like annoying side characters to make things "interesting." Enjoy "Big Top Bunny"! :-)
