Storyline

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

Quotes

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!

Demonstrates what's wrong with Bugs Bunny
22 March 2002 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

All too often, Bugs Bunny resembles the stereotypical American tourist, bigoted, unable to understand why he's not welcome, incapable of realising that he got things wrong the first time round. (That's the stereotype, anyway. I've yet to encounter it in real life.) He is BEYOND brash, his rhinoceros-thick hide so impenetrable that the creature inside must be regarded as merely stupid. We long for his comeuppance, are galled to discover it will never come, and insulted by the request that we be GLAD that it will never come.

At least, that's what happens here. Bugs falls in love with a mechanical racetrack hare, and rushes off to save it from the slavering greyhounds chasing it - and he never learns his error, as I kept hoping he would, so that he'd go away and leave the rest of the world alone. It's not always like this with Bugs. He's impossible to dislike in a wonderful work like "Rabbit of Seville", for example, because Chuck Jones is a master director who knows how to make the character work for rather than against the cartoon. But it's important to realise that Robert McKimson's sin here is purely negative. He doesn't MAKE Bugs irritating; the character is irritating already. Rather, McKimson's stale and unimaginative direction does nothing whatever to alter or subvert or compensate for the character, leaving us with a tiresome, earthbound cartoon about an odious loudmouth.
