Elmer Fudd hopes to receive a promotion by agreeing to take care of his boss' dog, Rupert, for a weekend. But Rupert thinks of himself as a human and expects to be treated as such. So, Elmer must patronize his canine guest by feeding him prime steak and letting him sleep in a human bed, while Elmer eats dog food and sleeps in a doggie bed.

Not the best of Looney Tunes
24 November 2012 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This Warner Brothers cartoon directed by Robert McKimson is without doubt not one of his best. It's quite slow paced and the replacement actor for Elmer's voice is also highly distracting. Regarding the plot Elmur is asked by his boss to take care of his dog "Rupert" who thinks that he is a human and Elmor has to treat him as such. Of course Elmer being only to happy to do a favor for his boss accepts it and thinks that he may go "up" to become vice-president. Of course the gags focus on this issue with dog thinking that he is human and Elmer forgetting this. I won't spoil the ending here. Most of the gags aren't that funny. The animation isn't quite mid 50s level of awesomeness but it's not as bad as the later Looney Tunes. Only for die-hard Looney Tunes fans.
