Max Hare and Toby Tortoise are having a foot race. Max has much more style, and is generally cocky. He pauses for a short nap, to chat up the bunnies outside a girl's school (and show off in several sports). When he hears the crowd roar for Toby approaching the finish line, he takes off, but a last-minute sprint, and a long neck, give Toby the inevitable victory. Written by

Many Warner Bros. animators have admitted that Max Hare is the inspiration for Bugs Bunny. See more »
Well - heh, heh, heh - May the best man - heh - win.
Thanks, I will. but I won't beat ya too bad. Shake.
[Toby goes to shake Max's hand, but he pulls it away]
Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha-ha!
Heh-heh-heh-heh. That's a funny joke, but - heh-heh - you caught me fair and square.
No hard feelings?
Put 'er there.
[Again Max pulls away his hand just as Toby stretches out his]
Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha-ha!

This is one of Walt Disney's classic Silly Symphony shorts, adapting Aesop's classic fable about the slow Tortoise who triumphs over the speedy Hare in a race. Some characters were added to the story like audience members and the hare's cheerleaders to enhance the content of the cartoon.
I like how the hare was depicted as cocky and confident, sure that he will win the race, and how the tortoise was depicted as steady, humble and calm, not worrying about losing, just doing his part fair and square. This shows that arrogant, overly- confident and know- it-all people don't always have it their way, and that humble and quiet people can win the race!
Overall, a fun cartoon that serves a good balance of entertainment and moral lessons to the little ones.
