Bugs Bunny comes to a city park to be daily fed carrots by a meek, little man. Bugs proposes that the man adopt him as a pet. The man accepts and takes Bugs home, where he states he is a doctor - and the name on his shingle is Dr. Jekyll. Unbeknownst to Bugs, Jekyll gives into the temptation to drink his potion that changes him into Mr. Hyde. Bugs keeps fleeing Hyde and running to the re-transformed Jekyll for help, but behind Bugs' back, Jekyll involuntarily changes back into Hyde. Bugs helps himself to some of Jekyll's potion before leaving to return to the park, where he changes into a shaggy, green rabbit that scares everyone away. Written by

I get the feeling that they were running a little short of ideas here.
While I usually consider the Bugs Bunny cartoons some of the best ever produced, "Hyde and Hare" seems a little lame, namely because of repetition. It portrays Bugs getting adopted by Dr. Jekyll, who quickly drinks his potion and turns into Mr. Hyde, and proceeds to chase Bugs all over the place. The whole thing about him changing back and forth behind Bugs's back gets tiresome pretty quickly.
Still, Bugs himself has some good lines, especially the one at the end. Maybe we expect so much from the crowd behind the Looney Tunes cartoons that something like this seems weak. Maybe they created this when they couldn't come up with any other ideas. Not terrible, but don't make it your first choice.
