Storyline

Claude Hopper, a kangaroo, and "best darn hopper in the world," is full of himself (and dumb), so a couple of Scottish rabbits take him on. They set up a boxing ring; Claude gets tangled in the ropes. Next, he tries a distance leap, but the rabbits ride on his tail, then leap over as he lands. He tries again, without all the ballast in his pouch, but they've stuck his tail down with chewing gum. Claude falls into the river; the rabbits wash up in his water-filled pouch. Now they start coaching him. First, he's launched from a see-saw, bouncing off a zeppelin and right through the meat price ceiling; he lights a match to find out where he is and attracts anti-aircraft fire. The rabbits had given him a case of dynamite as "ballast"; he pulls it out, and falls -- on Tokyo. "Guess we know who's champeen now." Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Scots do often shorten Alexander to Sandy
5 November 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of Norm McCabe's cartoons from his very short tenure as a director at Warner Bros. - he took over Bob Clampett's unit when Clampett took over Tex Avery's, and then Frank Tashlin took over the unit - "Hop and Go" looks like a possible precursor to the Hippety Hopper cartoons. The cartoon portrays a dimwitted kangaroo named Claude Hopper (his voice is provided by Pinto Colvig, most famous as Goofy in the Disney cartoons). A total sucker, Claude never realizes what a pair of sadistic Scottish rabbits are using him for their own personal entertainment!

One of the rabbits is named Sandy. I hear that the Scots do often shorten Alexander to Sandy. Anyway, it's an OK cartoon for the brief entertainment that it provides. McCabe never really got a chance to develop a theme or style in his cartoons - the famous Looney Tunes directors all developed their own styles - but the few of his that I've seen certainly have made me laugh. This one did. Worth seeing, although it probably did function more as a place-holder when it came out; 1943 saw the release of such greats as "A Corny Concerto", "Super-Rabbit", "Pigs in a Polka" and "Porky Pig's Feat".
