Storyline

Bugs Bunny takes the wrong turn at Albuquerque and ends up tunneling into Scotland (!). There he immediately attacks a horrible monster engulfing a defenseless old lady. Only it turns out the "monster" is a set of bagpipes and the "old lady" is a man in a kilt. Bugs thinks this is indecent and throws a barrel over the Scotsman. This is too much, and the angry Scotsman tries to blow out Bugs's brains. Soon the two opponents settle the matter more civilly - with a game of golf. Bugs's golfing strategy leaves most of his scruples buried under a divot. The infuriated Scotsman suggests one more contest, again underestimating the quick-witted bunny. Written by J. Spurlin

A fine series of gags and strong characterizations make this another winner from Chuck Jones, Michael Maltese and company; love that final gag!

Bugs Bunny takes the wrong turn at Albuquerque and ends up tunneling into Scotland (!). There he immediately attacks a horrible monster engulfing a defenseless old lady. Only it turns out the "monster" is a set of bagpipes and the "old lady" is a man in a kilt. Bugs thinks this is indecent (despite his own predilection for drag) and throws a barrel over the Scotsman. This is too much, and the angry Scot tries to blow out Bugs's brains. Soon the two opponents settle the matter more civilly - with a game of golf. Bugs's golfing strategy leaves most of his scruples buried under a divot. The infuriated Scotsman suggests one more contest, again underestimating the quick-witted bunny.

A fine series of gags and strong characterizations make this another winner from Chuck Jones, Michael Maltese and company. "McGrory," as Bugs dubs him at one point, gives a series of priceless reactions to the befuddling Bugs. Love that final gag!
