That poor dog!
18 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

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.
