Storyline

Bugs Bunny takes the wrong turn at Albuquerque and ends up tunneling into Scotland (!). There he immediately attacks a horrible monster engulfing a defenseless old lady. Only it turns out the "monster" is a set of bagpipes and the "old lady" is a man in a kilt. Bugs thinks this is indecent and throws a barrel over the Scotsman. This is too much, and the angry Scotsman tries to blow out Bugs's brains. Soon the two opponents settle the matter more civilly - with a game of golf. Bugs's golfing strategy leaves most of his scruples buried under a divot. The infuriated Scotsman suggests one more contest, again underestimating the quick-witted bunny. Written by J. Spurlin

A nice cartoon in a new setting for Bugs.
21 December 2003 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

In this early cartoon, Bugs Bunny forgets that left turn at Albuquerque, and ends up in Scotland, where he meets a Scot, and they have a disagreement. After finding that Scottish people don't play cards to settle issues, Bugs plays golf against the Scot. Once again, the rabbit's inventiveness baffles the foreigner.

Warner Bros. released this on two videos and DVD, which is good news. Bugs pulls some funny stunts out on the green, and I like his impersonation of a Scottish landowner. There's a good auction spoof as well. All of it is funny, though not above the average Looney Tunes cartoon. Recommended.
