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>

Excellent short by a little-known director
14 August 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent cartoon and is one of a handful directed by Norman McCabe, who is not nearly as well known as other Warner Brothers directors, chiefly because he didn't direct for terribly long. Claude Hopper is a very engaging character similar to Disney's Goofy because he was voiced by Pinto Colvig and all of Pinto Colvig's voice work tends to make the characters sound about as bright as a five watt bulb. There are voices which are so distinctive that they are instantly recognizable and Colvig had one. A remarkably talented man and he's perfect for Claude Hopper, a character so dumb he doesn't realize that the two rabbits are tricking him left and right. The ending is great and in keeping with the times, what with a war on and all. McCabe usually worked some war related reference, most prominent as a rule. Worth the trouble to see. Most recommended.
