Bugs is being chased again, this time by a dog named Willoughby. The clumsy mutt is incredibly stupid, literally falling for Bugs' cons again and again. Bugs becomes a bit overconfident in his dealing with the dog, though, and finds himself falling for his own tricks. In the end, cartoon logic wins out over the laws of gravity--or does it? Written by
Did You Know?
This is the cartoon that led to Tex Avery
leaving Warner Brothers. The final gag of this cartoon originally had Bugs and Willoughby, (the dog) fell off an extremely deep cliff, with Bugs telling the audience, "Hold on to your hats, folks. Here we go again!" Producer, Leon Schlesinger
didn't like the ending and cut it. According to Avery, Schlesinger thought the ending lines were too similar to the punch line of a then-popular dirty joke and therefore too risqué to be in a cartoon, and that the audience would believe there was a connection between the fall and the punch line. Avery was enraged and walked out of the studio. He was promptly suspended, and when MGM heard about it, animation producer, Fred Quimby
quickly hired him. See more
