Doggone Tired (1949) and Magical Maestro (1952) have same musical connection of a song. In Doggone Tired, the dog does a dance with the background music, after pointing out a rabbit hole. In Musical Maestro, the magician dog does a quick dance of same musical rhythm. See more »
All the loud noises that the rabbit creates to keep the dog, Speedy awake, oddly never seem to awaken Speedy's human owner. Who's asleep in the very next room, with the door open. See more »

This is one of the better Tex Averys, as well as one of the more violent ones (please recognize that "cartoon violence" and real violence are NOT the same thing, though), most of it directed at Speedy, the unfortunate dog. While I do understand the rabbit's actions and have not one problem recognizing a desire (and need) for self-preservation, I find myself more in sympathy with the dog than the rabbit as things unfold here. Sight gags for the most part and quite good ones they are, too. Well worth watching. Recommended.
