Storyline

All the animals in the forest, including animals one would not expect to find in the forest, are fleeing for their lives. Bugs Bunny manages to stop a turtle (by blocking its path with a shovel) and asks him what all the excitement is about. "The Tasmanian devil is on the loose!" cries the turtle. Bugs looks up "Tasmanian devil" in his encyclopedia and discovers that it's a "strong murderous beast" that eats just about any animal. It doesn't mention rabbits, and so the Tasmanian devil, who has been reading over Bugs's shoulder, pencils in "rabbits" himself. Bugs calmly asks, "What's up, doc?" He then spends the day tricking the wild, snorting, snarling beast with a bubble-gum chicken, a decoy deer, a giant slingshot and finally a classified ad in the Tasmanian Post-Dispatch. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

Producer Edward Selzer disliked the Tasmanian Devil and asked that no further cartoons be made with him. It was studio head Jack L. Warner who asked for more cartoons with "Taz Boy" (as the animators called him), on the strength of audience response to the character. Hence, there is a three year difference between this cartoon and Taz's next appearance in Bedevilled Rabbit (1957). See more »

Devil May Hare (1954)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

All of the animals in the forest are running away when a Tasmanian Devil is on the loose. All except for Bugs Bunny who decides to stay and mess with the creature. This is a wonderful Looney Tunes short that contains great action, wonderful characters and an even better amount of laughs. The movie contains one great scene after another and we also get some rather cute ones including one scene with a baby deer. The best moment has to be the sequence where Bugs gives the Devil a lot of bubble gum and you know madness is going to follow. Another plus is that the Devil actually has some rather funny lines instead of just being a fast mess.
