Betting on a Winner

After decades of losing in races to Tommy Tortoise, competitor Moe Hare (get it?) finally comes up with a winning strategy. He will on the Tortoise in this decent Famous Studios Noveltoon.

It's an interesting twist on the often-filmed fable. Irving Spector's script and John Zago's light, bright background work serve to make this an attractive cartoon. Of course, the low-class New York accent of the hare makes you think of Bugs Bunny and his races with Cecil Turtle a decade earlier, but looked at on its own merits, this is a well-made if not outstanding cartoon from the period when Famous Studios was going through its long, slow slide.
