[Bugs is at Cecil's door, disguised as an old man]
Cecil Turtle: Hello, old timer.
Bugs Bunny: Hello, Johnny. Tell me, Johnny. How come you always beat that rabbit?
Cecil Turtle: Clean living, friend. Clean living.
Bugs Bunny: That ain't the way I heard it, Johnny. The way I heard it, you have a secret way of winning. What is it, huh?
Cecil Turtle: Well, I'll tell you. The secret is modern design. You know, streamlining. Yup, we turtles are built for racing.

Bugs Bunny attempts to beat Cecil Turtle in a race, but can't. This short shows that Bugs doesn't lose very often. But when he does he can be as sore of a loser as Daffy Duck. I found the short to be hilarious myself, with great sight gags. but I can see why others would disagree. This short leaves the ending unedited unlike when it's shown on TV. Also the ending brings to mind that there IS a fair amount of suicide in the Looney Tunes canon of shorts. I have no idea what THAT'S about. I'd definitely recommend this short without hesitation. This cartoon is on Disk 3 of the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1"
