I'll tell you how good this cartoon is - I showed it to a group of my high school seniors prior to their graduation. After it was done, they were dumbfounded. I nodded my head in assent - "Yes, folks, while you think you know a lot about life, there are some things that will surprise you. For example, until today, none of you thought Bugs Bunny was a complete jerk." They agreed with me.

It's dark, it's black, it's sick. It's brilliant. First off, having young and old Bugs, but not present-day Bugs, was a stroke of genius. Burying Elmer Fudd alive is a stroke of genius. And just look at some of McKimson's animation - so detailed, so...well, alive - a big departure from his own later, flat films.

I know most folks say that "Coal Black" is Clampett's masterpiece. But until I see a restored version of it - and not the crappy YouTube print that is available - this gets my vote for Clampett's best...and thus, by extension, one of the greatest of all Looney Tunes.
