Concept: 1/4 (Bad)
Story: 1/4 (Bad)
Characters: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Dialog: 3/4 (Good)
Pacing: 4/4 (Great)
Cinematography: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design: 3/4 (Good)
Acting: 3/4 (Good)
Music: 3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay, 2/4). The comedic timing is great. The character animation, especially of Bugs, is delightful. But I really do not care for Fantasia, and you can only have so much fun watching a parody of something you don't like. Also, 70 years later, the things-happening-in-time-to-a-Strauss-waltz gag has gotten old.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.4/4 (Okay)
