Storyline

Granny has just tucked Sylvester the dog in for the night when she hears a knock at the door. She opens it and sees a half-frozen Bugs Bunny, who is exaggerating his sorry plight for effect. Granny buys the act and lets Bugs sleep right next to Sylvester in front of the fireplace. But the jealous dog is having none of it. The first chance he gets, he throws Bugs back out in the cold. Bugs plays on the dog's pity to get back in but can't resist a dirty trick. When a snow sculpture of himself melts, Sylvester thinks it's the real rabbit and succumbs to paroxysms of guilt before he discovers the ruse. From then on, the two play a game of one-upmanship that ends when Granny gets in on the game. Written by J. Spurlin

not among the best, yet still fun
3 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On a cold snowy Winter night, an elderly woman takes in a cold Bugs Bunny who is dying on her doorstep. Her dog Sylvester doesn't like this one bit and tosses him out, of course you know that this means war and they take turns throwing each other outside. This cartoon is pretty good although Bugs seems to be off somehow from the version we all know and love. The dog made a pretty fun, if simple, foil for the rascally rabbit though. Not among the top wrung of the Bugs shorts, but fun none the less. This animated short can be found on Disk 1 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 3 set.

My Grade: B
