Cartoon a Day: Crazy Cruise

Crazy Cruise
Directed by Bob Clampett and Tex Avery
Available on: Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 5

It’s pretty rare that a Looney Tunes short ends up being a complete disappointment to me, but that ‘s just what “Crazy Cruise” is. I’m still not exactly sure where the title of this short comes from. The format is like a travel documentary, though not all of the stops are on a cruise. The film doesn't feature any major characters except for a brief cameo by Bugs Bunny at the end of the film.

The gags are pretty disjointed, and in all honesty, seem like a collection of discarded jokes from other shorts strung together. What’s odd, especially for Warner Brothers, is that none of the gags really work well. And that's about all I have to say about that.
