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 »

My Bunny Lies Over the Sea is another funny Chuck Jones Bugs Bunny cartoon
31 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Having once again realized he "should've taken that left turn at Albuquerque", Bugs winds up in Scotland where he already finds trouble when he mistakes a Scotsman in his kilts playing a bagpipe for an old lady being attacked by a monster and "kills" the instrument. From there, insults fly fast as the kilt-wearing man whose voice partially resembles Yosemite Sam challenges the rabbit to a game of golf. As with Sam, Bugs changes one word that makes his opponent accept one of his plays as a "hole-in-one" despite fifty-five tries! None of the stuff Bugs does would be acceptable in the golf rule book but they're pretty hilarious nonetheless! That last gag is a topper! Another funny outing from Chuck Jones and Michael Maltese.
