I watched a lot of Saturday morning television while growing up. I did not have cable until I was a young teenager and cartoons were the only thing on tv on Saturdays. Watching Bugs Bunny Howl-Oween Special brought back a lot of Saturday morning memories.
This DVD is packed with classic Bugs Bunny that any parent would love to pass on to their children. Remember Witch Hazel trying to boil Bugs for dinner? Somehow he always outsmarted her.
I’m not sure if Emma and Ethan were just exhausted from playing all morning, or if they truly liked the show (I didn’t expect them to watch the whole thing… it is geared for ages 6 and up) but they sat mesmerized the entire show. Maybe they just haven’t seen cartoons like that before? I sure miss the old classics… makes me want to Google Holly Hobby, Smurfs and Strawberry Shortcake.
My final say… I loved watching the old classic clips from a simpler time. I wondered if my kids would like Bugs. I mean, they have Blues Clues, Sid the Science Kid and Super Why?… but somehow Bugs Bunny fits in.
Bugs Bunny Howl-Oween Special on DVD retails for $14.98 and is on sale right now at Amazon.com for $11.49.
