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

Trivia

On the putting green, Scotsman MacRory laughs as his ball sits directly within Bugs Bunny's putting line, thus forcing Bugs to bank-shot his putt with a cue stick. This is a reference to the 'Stymie' rule that was part of golf and was in force until abolished internationally in 1952. Modern rules of golf dictate that MacRory must mark his ball to allow Bugs to putt out. See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: Now, one good turn deserves another. Could you point out to me the shortest route to the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Ahn-galays?
MacRory: [confused] La Brea Tar Pits?
[suddenly realizing, MacRory runs off and quickly returns with a blunderbuss, pointing it at Bugs' back]
MacRory: There are no La Brea Tar Pits in Scotland!
Bugs Bunny: Scotland? Eh, what's up, MacDoc?
[Bugs quickly departs]

My Bunny Lies Over the Sea (1948)

** (out of 4)

Lesser short from the Looney Tunes series has Bugs Bunny ending up in Scotland where he destroys a man's bagpipes so he gets challenged at a game of golf. This has never been one of my favorites and it was actually even weaker than I remembered it being. There are really two jokes in this short with the first half dealing with Scotland and the second half dealing with golf. Neither contain any major laugh even though both halves feature some nice imagination. While the imagination is nice none of it ever captures too many laughs as most of the jokes fall flat on their face. The final joke of the film isn't too bad but this is easily one that could be skipped.
