Storyline

Bugs is provoked by a pack of foxhounds and their hunters stampeding over his hole, so he gets out his Halloween costume from last year (a fox suit) and sets out to lead the dogs on a merry chase. The stupidest of the dogs, whose objective is to cut a fox's tail off, becomes his main victim; Bugs tricks him into chasing a train instead. He eventually tricks the dog pack into running off a cliff, but the stupid dog ends up with Bugs' tail. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[just after Bugs Bunny, in the fox uniform, sets fox tracks next to train tracks, the naive dog grabs Bugs and threatens to cut off the fox tail. But after 'foxxy' Bugs Bunny asks what type of tracks, the dog was following, the naive dog remembers that it was on train tracks and goes inside a train tunnel, then comes out holding on to a side of a train]
Naive chubby dog: I caught a train, I caught a train, all by myself, I did.

"And I thought this was going to be a dull day"
30 August 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that this classic Bugs Bunny short is not aired on TV much anymore. To me, it's one of Bugs' best films! With all issues about fox hunting set aside, this cartoon is extremely funny! Bugs starts out just wanting to tease a group of hunting dogs in the classic "Elmer Fudd/Looney Tunes" style. The main object of Bugs' trickery is a big, dopey looking hunting dog. This pooch is the classic cartoon "idiot" that Bugs really loves to pester and pester he does! However, this is one of the few times that Bugs' tricks actually backfire on him. The first time my son saw this cartoon, he was very shocked at the ending. A laughfest from start to finish!
