Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble is a video game developed by Atod AB for the Sega Genesis and Game Gear, released in 1996. The game stars Bugs Bunny and features pre-rendered 3D graphics (similar to Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo)

Similarly to 1994's Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse, the levels in this game are mainly based on individual Bugs Bunny cartoons from Warner Bros.' Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series, stringing them together by having Bugs trapped in a "Televisor" created by Yosemite Sam as a mad scientist. Seven of the levels are based on the Bugs Bunny cartoons Duck! Rabbit, Duck!, Bully for Bugs, Knighty Knight Bugs, Hare-Abian Nights, Spaced Out Bunny, Mad as a Mars Hare, and Hare-Way to the Stars, while the other level, entitled Haunted Hare, is based on elements of Bewitched Bunny and Hair-Raising Hare.

Each level features objectives, designs, and opposing characters based on the source cartoon(s), though some levels take liberties to include plot elements, weapons, and obstacles that weren't present in the original cartoons. For example, the Hare-Abian Nights level features a duel with Yosemite Sam over a genie's lamp, and Spaced Out Bunny is essentially a race against Marvin the Martian to Mars. As well, the Duck! Rabbit, Duck! level does not have the snow present in the original cartoon, giving it a design closer to Chuck Jones' earlier "hunting trilogy" cartoons, like Rabbit Fire.

Reception[edit]

Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble received mixed reviews. MobyGames gave the score 2.5 out of 5, and GameFAQs gave the game 6.6 out of 10 based on 9 reviews. Most praise went to the art style and animation for staying faithful to the game's source material, giving players the impression of watching different Looney Tunes skits.
