Storyline

Bugs Bunny is enjoying his morning shower under a waterfall, singing "April Showers," when the water flow gets cut off. Bugs, thinking at first beavers are responsible, he climbs up the cliff to investigate. He meets Black Jacque Shellac, a ruthless lumberjack who wants to control the water supply. Bugs tricks the French-accented Jacque into removing a tiny rock in the dam to dislodge it. Jacque builds more dams, and prepares for what he thinks is the rabbit pulling more tricks; but of course Jacque and his dams get the worst end of a real shark and a barge full of dynamite. Certain Bugs will make more attempts to destroy his dam, the villainous Jacque fires his rifle at the waterfalls but winds up wrecking the rabbit's record player. Jacque builds "the perfect dam," one made of steel, but this time, the rabbit fights back with a series of his own. Using a cannon, Jacque proceeds to destroy them all, but his final attempt to destroy Grand Cooler Dam (thinking it's Bugs') ends with ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Hilarious; the 1st reviewer has no sense of humor, imho
21 November 2009 | by PackymanSee all my reviews

Cartoon Network is now airing Looney Tunes in the a.m. If you keep your eyes open you just might see it. Me and a friend have an inside joke associated with Black Jaque Shellacque and Bugs, and we never tire of laughing over it. I just wish it was on one of the Golden Collections.

To the 1st comment, why are you dissecting a cartoon with logic? Just watch it and enjoy (or not). As far as Mel Blanc and Bugs' singing voice, I believe Mel was having Bugs imitate Al Jolson. Anyway, I prefer to look at a cartoon for it's artistry, originality, voice talent, musical score and production quality. All aesthetics, no logic. Have you seen footage of the artists at Warner Bros. back in their heydays? They were the goofiest, craziest people on the lot, and acted out a lot of the gag scenes at "Termite Terrace."

In the end, I'll always love this cartoon. It may not be the best Bugs adventure, but it's a classic to me. And my friend. And my sister. And another friend.
