Bugs challenges Cecil Turtle to race, only this time he's wearing an aerodynamic suit like Cecil's. Unfortunately, the gambling ring has bet everything on the rabbit, and Bugs now looks like a tortoise.
Elmer Fudd expects to find "west and wewaxation" during his visit to Jellostone National Park, but he sets up camp in Bugs' backyard, and the rabbit (and a neighboring bear) definitely don't have leisure in mind.
A sheepdog thwarts the efforts of a thieving wolf whose tricks include altering the time clock, hiding in a bush, imitating Pan, digging a tunnel, unleashing a wildcat and disguising himself as the dog's coworker.
The dialogue "why don't we do this more often, you mean just what we're doing tonight?" are the lyrics of a 1941 song, "Why Don't We Do This More Often?" See more »

Help! Help! Oh, you brute, you! Help!

Why don't we do this more often?
You mean just what we're doing tonight?

This cartoon may be slow moving and dull for some, but personally I found it very entertaining and is one of my new favourites. This cartoon is one of the first with Bugs Bunny (this was made two years after his official debut) and the debut of a minor-ish Looney Tunes character named Beaky Buzzard.
This cartoon was a good surprise for me for the following reasons: 1. I was not expecting this to be nearly so old and I enjoyed the old-fashioned humour you have in a few WB cartoons, featured here. I think that the plot along with "old" jokes would work better than the plot along with new jokes.
2. I was expecting this to be quite a fast paced, slapstick cartoon, instead I found that hardly any of the jokes featured slapstick (as a whole, all WB cartoons have some slapstick in them) and there were some good verbal jokes inserted in too. It certainly kept my interest going! The other good things about the cartoon were the ever familiar Bugs Bunny in his trick mode (escaping baddies using clever ways) and the introduction of Beaky Buzzard and this was also my first cartoon with him in as well. I will certainly look out for more with him in. The animation was pretty good and overall, I found it a great episode. :-)
The cartoon starts with a mother buzzard (vulture to my fellow British) instructing each of her offspring to go and bring some meat back to the nest. She gives her babies serious challenges, such as horse and deer. However, one of her babies does not want to hunt at all (Beaky Buzzard), but he is pushed out of the nest anyway to go and find something. He ends up finding Bugs Bunny, who he is ready to hunt...
I recommend this cartoon to people who do not mind old, slightly slow-moving Looney Tunes. Enjoy "Bugs Gets the Boid"! :-) 8 and a half out of ten.
