Complete credited cast:
Bugs Bunny / MacRory (voice)


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 'Bogey' For This Bugs Bunny Cartoon
20 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The golf scenes in here were okay but nothing to "write home about." The better laughs - and there weren't many in this sub-par Bugs Bunny cartoon - were before Bugs and his Scottish foe played.

Even though it's been used before, it's always fun to see Bugs appear out of some hole and discover he's not close to where he thought he was going. This time he's WAY off target, across the ocean in Scotland. Bugs uses his normal line, "I knew I should have taken a left at Albuquerque."

Upon spotting a Scotsman wearing kilts and playing the bagpipes (talk about stereotyping!), Bugs jumps on the bagpipes and ruins them. He thought it was mugger beating up on an old lady, the kilts confusing him. Then, when he finds out what's what, Bugs changes his normal opening line to, "What's up, MacDoc?"

The two get into it and the Scotsman challenges him to a game of golf to save his honor. The match features all kinds of cheating and holes-in-one. As mentioned above, this is below par....or should I rephrase that to "over par." Most Bugs Bunny cartoons are pars and birdies, but this one's a bogey.
