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.

Even with one of Bugs' stupidest foils, it is still a hilarious and beautifully animated cartoon
1 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Is Foxy By Proxy one of Bugs' very best? Probably not. Is it a great cartoon? I think so. Bugs is on top form, his persona and wisecracks are still as priceless as ever. The hound is one his stupidest foils, but incredibly endearing at the same time. The humour is imaginative and still hilarious. There are some great quotes here especially Bugs' "I've seen better heads on a glass of root beer!!!", and of the gags the best was the whole train track sequence which I just can't get enough of and it makes me bust a gut every time. The pacing is also crisp, and there is not a dull moment in the story. The animation is beautifully done, both characters are drawn very well and it is sumptuously coloured. The music as ever is full of incisive energy and lively orchestration. Mel Blanc does a wonderful job again with the voicing, how he managed to voice so many characters the way he did I don't know. In conclusion, very well recommended. 10/10 Bethany Cox
