Transylvania 6-5000

Released on this date in 1963, Transylvania 6-5000 was the last Bugs Bunny cartoon directed by Chuck Jones. And this cartoon is thoroughly Chuck. From the backgrounds to the character design to the timing, this short is a one-stop lesson in Jonsian cartoon directing.

After taking a wrong left turn, Bugs ends up in the castle of a bloodthirsty Count. Luckily, Bugs knows the secret work, and confounds the Count’s attempts to retrieve Bugs’ blood.

Note that when Bugs rings the castle doorbell, the chimes play the opening notes of the TV series “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.”

A fitting climax to Jones’ career at Warner Bros, or a cardboard epitaph- what do you think?
