While cooking a tin can, the Coyote spots a better meal rushing by- the Road Runner. But making himself into a giant arrow doesn't catch the bird, and the book, "How to Tar and Feather a Road Runner", isn't much help either.
Among the strategies that fail in Wile E. Coyote's attempts to catch the Roadrunner: glue on the road, a giant rubber band, an outboard motor in a wash tub, and dressing in drag as a female Roadrunner.

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

With a likable animation style that happens to crop up in a few good Looney Tunes cartoons, Hyde and Hare is, for myself, one of the better episodes. What I like about the cartoon is that it combines the traditional wild, slapstick WB themes and the rarer Disney-type themes that can run in Looney Tunes.
Based on Jekyll and Hyde, Bugs Bunny lives contentedly in a park, every day looking forward to meet the man who feeds him. One day, when Bugs goes up to retrieve a carrot from the man, he decides that he would like to just live with him and be done with it. The man seems to be very gentle, kind and quite delicate and takes to the (talking) rabbit, bringing him to his house. We later find out that the man is a doctor and has an evil potion that can temperamentally turn him into a monster. Cartoon confusions commence...
Expect a traditional Looney Tunes ending, as the first half is the Disney-type stuff. It is not all sweet and fluffy, but it is no big issue.
I recommend this episode to people who like "turning worms" Looney Tunes episodes, to people who like Bugs Bunny (he is very good in this episode) and to people who have a vague idea (or a big idea!) of the Jekyll and Hyde story. Enjoy "Hyde and Hare"! :-)
