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

Not among Bugs' best, but an above decent cartoon nonetheless
11 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a huge Looney Tunes fan, I re-visited The Grey-Hounded Hare after seeing it a few times as a kid and completely forgetting about it, and I liked it. The story is rather standard and the lead dog while not a complete dud I agree didn't strike me as memorable. However, Bugs is great as always, likable but with a bit of arrogance about him. The animation with good colours and backgrounds and decently drawn characters is quite good, and the attention to visual detail is evident. The music is as quirky and energetic as I like it, the dialogue is witty and fresh and the pace is solid. Mel Blanc's voice work throughout is superb. Overall, above decent. 8/10 Bethany Cox
