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

this cartoon was not a dog
12 June 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I'll admit that I don't really know anything about dog races, but you don't need to know anything thereabout to enjoy "The Grey Hounded Hare".

Bugs Bunny stumbles upon a dog race, and quickly learns that the contestants don't like rabbits. But what truly riles him is the fact the dogs are chasing the female rabbit with whom he has just fallen in love (it's a robot, but he doesn't know that). So, that long-eared rascal sets about coming up with ways to stop the dogs from chasing the rabbit. That is, until the final showdown with a big bellicose dog.

Maybe this isn't the best cartoon that the Looney Tunes' creative team made, but there's really nothing bad about it. And the end scene is a good lesson about the dangers of electricity.
