Falling Hare stuck out to us because there because there is a moment when Bugs finds himself outside of the bomber where he turns into a donkey with "jack ass" written across his torso, which, for 10 year olds was amazing to see in school.
First up is the latest new Mickey cartoon, Cable Car. In it, Mickey and Minnie visit San Francisco to see the sights but run into a little problem.
Might as well hit you with Falling Hare now too.
British Pathé put a ton of historical films on YouTube this week and among them was this little animated short from 1933 called Cobb, about a dog and a chicken.
