Storyline

It's morning and Bugs Bunny is awake. It doesn't look like he had enough rest though. He looks around and sees he is high up in the sky. Bugs' hole has become part of an construction site and a bulldozer is ready to move his hole to destruction. Bugs makes an emotional plea to move his home back to it's original place and the construction worker seems touched. But his intentions aren't that well. Bugs Bunny swears revenge.

Standard fare in the hands of any other director is made into magic by Chuck Jones
3 November 2008 | by phantom_tollboothSee all my reviews

Chuck Jones's 'Homeless Hare' is a fantastic example of a simple premise made brilliant by great writing and genius direction. Pitting Bugs Bunny against a bullying construction worker, 'Homeless Hare' takes place on the oft-used setting of the building site but there's nothing hackneyed about these antics. Jones infuses Bugs's heckling with exceptional timing, increasing the hilarity of the gags significantly. "Hercules" the construction worker is a great foil for Bugs and there's also a diminutive assistant who steals every scene he's in with his deadpan performance. While Jones will always be best remembered for his more inventive shorts, he always also had a knack for infusing the traditional heckling and chase cartoons with a new energy and inventiveness. 'Homeless Hare' is an excellent example of this. Jones takes what could have been very standard fare in the hands of another director and manages to fashion a mini-classic.
