Storyline

1896, Dawson, Alaska. Thus, the setting for Bugs' first of two encounters with Black Jacque Shellaque, a ruthless French-accented villain. A snow-covered Bugs walks into the saloon with a bagful of gold nuggets (which the rabbit calls "rocks"). Though the rocks have no value to Bugs, that means nothing to Jacque, who believes the bunny is out to get rich. Gags include Bugs' and Jacque's blackjack game, where the rabbit standing on one card (a "21" card) and Bugs substituting the bag of gold nuggets with a one filled with gun powder. The powder leaves a trail behind Jacque, who gloats at his "victory," but Bugs' lighting the trail aborts the villain's celebration. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Contrary to the narrator's description of Dawson City as "lawless", its laws were strictly enforced by the North West Mounted Police, as the Yukon was a part of British Canada. While there were certainly rip-roaring saloons, gamblers and even brothels, there was actually very little violence, and Sunday closings, along with a "no work" statute, were rigidly enforced - one could actually be arrested on Sunday for fishing, or cutting wood.

"Cause Blacque Jacque Shellacque is roughest, toughest, low clokest canuck in the Klondike! That's why!"
10 September 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Bonanza Bugs is not quite one of my favourite Bugs Bunny cartoons, but it is still thoroughly enjoyable. The animation is colourful and fluid, one of the better looking "late" Bugs Bunny cartoons in my view. The music is still of the lively energy you'd expect, with lovely orchestration. The writing is witty with both Bugs and Jacque having their share of great lines, and the gags while not the most imaginative still amuse me highly. The story is on the routine side, but still crisply paced and never dull. Bugs is smart and somewhat arrogant, in short this is Bugs at his best. Jacque is a worthy foil, though I do agree to some extent that it is a role that Yosemite Sam could have done easily and perhaps even better also. Mel Blanc's voice work is stellar. All in all, thoroughly enjoyable. 9/10 Bethany Cox
