Chuck Jones' Broomstick Bunny swept into theaters on February 25, 1956. Witch Hazel (brought to such wonderful life by the incomparable actress, June Foray) is deathly afraid of becoming beautiful; she even has a 'magic mirror' to which she posits the question, "Who is the ugliest of them all?" Bugs Bunny makes a grand entrance in witch costume trick or treating and much hilarity ensues! All of this resulting in the sudden and completely unexpected transformation of Witch Hazel into a ravishing sex symbol, so potent is her beauty that even the genie in the mirror is smitten as witnessed in this delightful layout drawing by Chuck Jones.
