Storyline

A wolf is out of food, and begins hallucinating, seeing a rope as sausages and a rolling pin as an ear of corn. A young rabbit, lost in the snow, comes in, and the wolf eyes him hungrily. The rabbit is amazingly polite, and just before the wolf is about to cook him, asks the wolf to be his daddy. The wolf can't bring himself to eat him, and sends him away. But the hunger will not stop, so he sets out in search of the rabbit. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The Hungry Wolf was another fine Harmon-Ising cartoon from M-G-M
30 January 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is an M-G-M cartoon produced by Harmon-Ising that I found on the Cartoons, Model Sheets, and Stuff site as linked from DailyMotion. The title character sees a rope as sausages, a rolling pin as corn, and finds cheese on a mousetrap but after getting nicked by the trap and chasing the mouse for the cheese (during which he manages to rip the wooden floor and some of the wall), the wolf seems resigned to his starvation. Then a little bunny comes in...Okay, I'll stop there and say that while things seem bleak for the bunny, things take a turn to some kind of salvation that insures a happy ending for all involved. So while there is some humor here, this is a mostly a more dramatic animated short that gets one feeling for both the bunny and the wolf. Oh, and the author of the site I just mentioned noticed the mouse's resemblance to Jerry of Tom and Jerry which I can see and am not surprised by since they're from M-G-M too. So on that note, I'm recommending The Hungry Wolf.
