The next in our Hitchcock mini-series is his 1948 masterpiece (can you guess whether or not our reviews were positive?) ROPE. We talk about the importance of the script, the marrying of form and function, and what happens when reality meets philosophical thought experiments.
The Tooniverse’s classic hero turned villain is back in the mix, and it can’t be long before he makes another bid for power. Meanwhile, a directionless Bugs Bunny makes a new enemy of the short-fused Colonel Shuffle.
Happy New Year! It’s 1949 and everything has gone insane. Daffy and Bugs seem to be on a mission to torment Elmer, but we just can’t pin what’s actually going on. Is it a slavery thing? Daffy seems to think so. Clonewatch’s all-seeing eye falls on Tom Turk this week, who we’re sure wasn’t blue […]

With Daffy working as a salesman of gags and cheap tricks, Chris and Cal wonder that his angle is. Has he fallen on hard times, or is he in deep cover? Meanwhile, Sylvester tries to secure himself a place in the home of Elmer Fudd, who seems to be doing very well for himself.
Mike Harrison-Wood from By The Mash Tun joins Chris and Cal for today’s foray into the Tooniverse. Pepé Le Pew gets through an episode without sexually assaulting anybody, Foghorn Leghorn lays down the law in a run in with Henery’s grandfather, and a meeting with a genie explains the advent of Bugs Bunny’s powers.
