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

Bugs Trying To Hit On A Hot Hare In The Fast Lane
17 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs tunnels from underneath and finds himself at the local dog track After checking out all the entries, he wanders over to the fence to get a close look at the race.

It begins and, lo-and-behold, there's a cute little rabbit! Bugs is immediately smitten. Unfortunately, that's the mechanical one the dogs chase each race. Bugs doesn't know it's a fake, he thinks "she" is cute and he's going to save her before all those dogs catch up to her.

Bugs does his best by trying to eliminate the field, one by one. However, the gray dog is more than a challenge for Bugs....and, for some reason, Bugs has a hard time catching up "to that dame."

The cartoon is funny and something a bit different. I can't recall seeing any cartoons involving dog (greyhound, to be exact) races.
