Storyline

Bugs, with the help of some Acme Super Speed Vitamins, is filling in for the roadrunner, who "sprained a giblet." Fortunately, even when the vitamins fail, Bugs can outwit the coyote, though as usual, the coyote outwits himself much of the time. Most complex gag: Wile E., atop a large cliff, has set out a target and a carrot. Bugs stops, the anvil drops, and Bugs appears atop the cliff, target in hand. He puts the target on Wile E.'s head, the anvil hits, and the cliff-side falls, taking Coyote with it. Bugs removes the target, the anvil falls and misses! Wile E., relieved, walks away into the path of a truck. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Eh, Beep beep, doc?
21 March 2010 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

The final teaming of Bugs Bunny and Wile E. Coyote puts Bugs in the injured Road Runner's place, with WEC never talking. Bugs spends the cartoon offering commentary on the coyote's lamebrain attempts to catch Bugs (and we can guess what the result always is).

OK, so we could be cynical and say that the series had long since passed its prime by this point and "Hare-Breadth Hurry" was little more than a placeholder. I say that the cartoon is still really funny, and that's what truly matters. In other words, with this series, that'll never be all, folks.

So yes, you never want to get cut off during a long fall.
