Yes, that's another great episode. And this is due to the fact, that it based on a story of El-ahrairah  :el-ahrairah

Driving Vervain crazy so he looses his face in front of Woundwort is a really cool idea (like the story in the book). Hannah is a great "Hedgewizard". All other animals do a great job.

Woundwort has some great lines in this episode.

And the highlight of this episode might be our mud-rabbit :D

We had Bigwig the Ice Rabbit in winter episodes and here we have Hawkbit the Mud Rabbit. Did anyone else get this kind of nickname? :D


Like I said in other thread, there is something about the idea of making Vervain (and others) think he is insane that makes me uncomfortable. I know it might have been necessary to save Campion's live, but I still don't like it.

But this idea was borrowed from a tale of El-ahrairah from the book. So it's not originated by the tv-series writers.

I'm not blaming tv series writes for inventing that idea.

Hannah: Being a mouse is dangerous.  :hannah

This is one of the best episodes of the entire series !. It is my favorite, has everything: a history of the ahrairah the book, the participation of many animals and rabbits, Hannah's spy: the fearless and brave, deception Vervain, the sorry state of Campion, General Woundwort is funny first and only time in the series, etc, this episode has tons of great stuff, interesting and great, I can see many times.

Woundwort: And cows can jump to the moon !.
It may be the best line of the series XD
All praise Hanna-Malana !, the great "Hedgewizard"

And the little Hawkbit covered in mud is so adorable when this angry, I WANT !! hug him. I like very much this rabbit grumpy x3   :hawkbit2

I always enjoy myself "The great game", I can see it every day without getting bored.
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

By the power of Hannah Tomorrow, you can achieve it. You have the blessing of The ahrairah permission to Hazel, respect and sympathy of Campion gruñon of Hawkbit.
And if you do well you will have secret wish.  :hannah
