More Magic from that Crazy White Wabbit


Prest-O Change-O (March 25, 1939)
Directed by Chuck Jones
Animated by Ken Harris

(Dates and credits from The Big Cartoon Database)


(This post accompanies John K's When Cartoons Evolved 3 - First Bugs Bunnies post)

In Chuck Jones' Prest-O Change-O, the white rabbit from Porky's Hare Hunt returns! In this cartoon, he is the great magician Sham-Fu's rabbit.


He's up to the same old tricks as the gopher in Get Rich Quick Porky --- tormenting a dog...


Well, let's take a look at some scenes...

I love this entrance!


...and look how cool it is when he falls from the coat rack like a piece of clothing!


...now for a familiar little disappearing act...








Well where'd the vase go?








Nothing like laughing at your victim when he's down...






Well now, this "spinning-out-of-his-hole" entrance looks familiar...






He can not only make objects vanish into thin air, but he can also make objects...






What a sweet little bunny rabbit...








What's this? More magic?




Well where'd he go!?!?!

did you know that Chuck Jones claims that this was the first bugs bunny cartoon, and that he created him?

Hi Charlie - no, I didn't know that! I really like this bunny though - especially his entrance from the coat rack.
