Storyline

Herbert, a hound who has never seen a fox, joins the Foxhound Academy to get his foxhound credentials. The instructors describes a fox, and tells Herbert to remain at the back of the pack during the hunt and blow a bugle if he sees a fox. The lead dogs pass by a fox but not Herbert, but the fox takes Herbert over to a sleeping bear and identifies the bear as a fox. Herbert blows his bugle, but the hunt resume, without Herbert, when the dogs see the bear. The fox returns and, at Herbert's invitation, joins him for a spot of tea.

By Leaps and Hounds was a pretty hilarious Famous Studios cartoon
22 November 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just saw on Thad Blog linked to Daily Motion this Famous Studios cartoon (though this version had the Harveytoons banner) written by Irv Spector whose son now has a blog dedicated to his father. It concerns a new boy hound named Herbert who's a pupil at a fox hunt academy. His teacher gives him a horn to signal for him and the other students to hunt for a fox. But since Herbert hasn't seen one before, the actual fox at first tricks him and the others into a cave...That's all I'll say about the synopsis except for when they find the "fox", he throws them out and says, "Can't a bloke hibernate in PEACE!" LOL! Plenty of funny gags and lines abound. Liked hearing the teacher say "Silly Arse!" and seeing the result of the "one lump or two" question that I used to think was exclusive to Bugs Bunny cartoons. So on that note, I highly recommend By Leaps and Hounds.
