Short Film of the Day: ‘Beanstalk Bunny’

March 29, 2020

This 1955 cartoon classic was directed by Chuck Jones, written by Michael Maltese and voiced by Mel Blanc (Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck) and Arthur Bryan (Elmer Fudd). Owing a lot to Walt Disney’s Mickey and the Beanstalk (1947), this version puts the classically irreverent Warner Brothers spin on the fairy tale.

Apologies for the low-res video, but funny is funny at any resolution. For more suggestions on what to watch, check out my list of more than 2,000 short films.
