The Looney Tunes Show – “Beauty School” Recap
I think one of the biggest issues with this series has to be Bugs Bunny, which is ironic since he is usually one of the most beloved characters in all that is Looney Tunes. Bugs has never been the most “looney” in this particular series, as he’s been mostly the straight man with some good funny moments here and there while Daffy usually takes the spotlight. However, this episode the writers finally nailed how to write Bugs’ characterization correctly. The biggest plot gag in this episode was Bugs helping Porky in dance classes. In order to do this though, Bugs is forced to dress up as a woman and as a result Speedy Gonzales ends up falling in love with him. Meanwhile, Lola ends up thinking the dressed Bugs is really another girl and that Bugs is cheating on her, which causes a whole load of hilarious chaos.
where Porky looks at his mirror and asks himself if
he wants to hang out, symbolizing how horribly lonely the poor pig is. But the best part was how Bugs was easily enjoying his role of dressing up as female, showing himself to be very
similar to his old cartoon short characterization. If any episode nearly redeems Bugs to the fullest, it has to be this one.
In short, “Beauty School” was an episode with plenty of looney fun to go around this time.
