Sam is a strange choice but the material is funny enough
Bugs is in his rabbit warren when a flying saucer lands outside. Inside, spaceman Yosemite Sam wants to capture an earth creature and picks Bugs. However, when robot ZX29B fails in his mission, Sam sends out his toughest robots before eventually having to confront Bugs himself.

Despite the initial wonder as to why Sam would be a spaceman instead of his usual cowboy or pirate characters, this was a pretty slick little film that was funny throughout. It starts quickly and keeps coming to make the most of the most of the running time. The plot sees Bugs taking on Sam either in person or his robots. It is all pretty funny and it uses the twist of the sci-fi element quite well to get some imaginative sequences.

Bugs is as good as he usually is and some of the robots have a little bit of character and are funnier for it. Sam is good and was funny once I'd accepted him as a spaceman who looks and sounds like a cowboy!

Overall this is an unlikely cartoon but one that is funny and feels slightly fresher than it should on the basis of the different sci-fi element. Not his best, but Sam is a good foil for Bugs and their little battle here makes for an enjoyable 5 minutes!
