Complete credited cast:
Bugs Bunny / #7 Dog - Gnawbone / Race Announcer / Dogs (voice)


Bugs Bunny ends up at a dog race and decides to take in the show. However, the mechanical rabbit is released (for the dogs to follow), and Bugs falls head over heals in love with the "light brown hare"! Unfortunately, when Bugs sees all of the dogs chasing "that cute little bunny", he valiantly runs onto the track and starts to take down the dogs one by one! Things seem to be in the bag, unless you count a huge grey dog that isn't going to let Bugs stand in his way of winning! Written by Lex

Bugs Bunny: [Examining the dogs] Hmm, looks a little undernourished. Kind of inny-skay in the elly-bay. This one looks a little better. Kind of flabby, though. No muscle tone. This runt ain't got a chance. Ah, number 7! That's me lucky number. Looks pretty good. Better check his teeth, though. Come on, Lassie, open your mouth. Let's see those little toothies. Hmm. A little shadow on that bicuspidor. You better see a dentist.
#7 Dog: Grr-rabbit!
Bugs Bunny: Eh, what's up, Doc? Don't you like rabbits?
#7 Dog: Grr-no!

Funny despite the lack of a good second-string character
7 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Woken from his sleep by all the disturbance, bugs comes out of his hole to find a grey hound race about to take place. He goes in to place a bet and settles down to watch the race. However, when he sees that a pretty young rabbit is used to make the dogs run, Bugs has no choice but to step in and save the maiden.

From the very moment that Bugs looks into the mouth of one of the dogs to see what the best bet for winner is, you can see what the problem is going to be with this cartoon - no foil for Bugs to work offa. And indeed as the cartoon gets going, that is exactly the problem. The action is still quite amusing but it needs to have a focal point alongside Bugs himself and the main greyhound just doesn't cut it as a character. Despite this the cartoon still works in a basic way and is pretty funny for the most part.

Bugs is as good as he always is but at times you feel the need for someone decent for him to outsmart; somehow it isn't the same to see him tricking a group of anonymous dogs. When he does go one to one, the dog is just too unmemorable to really make a good companion for Bugs and it stutters the cartoon a bit.

Despite this, Bugs is Bugs and he is still worth watching no matter who he's with! The cartoon is far from his best and really needed a better character for the lead dog to have but it still gets by with some nice laughs and the fact that it's still a Bugs Bunny cartoon!
