Storyline

A dog chases a rabbit, ultimately cornering him against a tree. But the dog doesn't want to eat the rabbit, just make friends. The rabbit takes his new friend (who he names Sniffy) to where the rest of the rabbits are playing football, and after introductions, they join in. A fox happens along. Realizing he can't attack while the dog is present, he calls the dog away. The opposing team asks the fox to join them, but he proves to be an awful football player. The dog starts to return, and the fox starts rounding up rabbits, with help from a carrot-baited fishing pole. The dog returns and chases fox; the rabbits are set free, and the fox is catapulted far away by a tree. The rabbits carry Sniffy off on their shoulders. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Okay cartoon from the Harman-Ising team
16 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

I got to see THE HOUND AND THE RABBIT as an extra on the DVD issue of the delightful Myrna Loy/William Powell MGM comedy DOUBLE WEDDING, and it was a quality (if uninspired) take on the usual hare-brained antics one associates with other studios like WB.

With the exception of one briefly shown extra character bearing the Bugs Bunny floppy-ears persona, the lead rabbit and his friends here are cuddly critters, more like Koala bears in design. The typical food-chain chasing around of these cartoons offers nothing new, but is presented in excellent Technicolor.

Strictly filler (and that's how it's consumed today, just as it was theatrically back in the '30s), this is of novelty value only.
