Bunny's Mistake (1914)
- Summaries (1)
Though his wife is doubtful of his ability to run the new automobile, Bunny insists that he is an expert driver. He starts out alone to familiarize himself with the car. He is very proud of his ability and gets more and more daring as he progresses. As he comes down the street, little Helen, out walking with her very big doll in her arms, tries to run across the street in front of him. She becomes frightened and drops the doll. Bunny runs over the doll and thinks it is the child. Bunny comes back, but when he sees a policeman talking to men near the spot where he ran over the doll and the pavement covered with red paint, which he mistakes for blood, he becomes panic-stricken and bolts. He takes shelter in a barn. The number of his car being known, Mrs. Bunny is called on to pay for the doll during her husband's absence. Bunny is pursued by all sorts of hoodoos. He meets policemen at every corner, farmers with shotguns and dogs. His car breaks down and he is forced to start pushing it down the road. He engages a mule team to help him. He has a fuss with the mule driver when time to pay comes and Bunny almost gets into a bad fight. Two policemen attracted by the noise come on the run and when they see Bunny they recognize him as the man who is wanted at headquarters. They do not tell him that his wife has put in a search order to find her lost husband. Bunny thinks his game is up. He holds out his hands to be handcuffed. When he arrives at police headquarters he confesses to a murder. The captain at the desk is puzzled. It is the first he has heard of a murder. Mrs. Bunny arrives, weeping, asking for news of her recreant husband. He tells her of his awful crime. She ridicules and scolds him and tells him that he has run over a doll. The policemen enjoy a good laugh. Ever afterward when the Bunny car gets out Mrs. Bunny is at the wheel and Mr. Bunny sits meekly at her side. She wears an air of triumph and Bunny seems utterly vanquished.
