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>

Trivia

The last cartoon to pit Wile E. Coyote against Bugs Bunny, following Operation: Rabbit (1952), To Hare Is Human (1956), Rabbit's Feat (1960), and Compressed Hare (1961). Unlike those entries, however, Wile E. Coyote acts like his persona in the Road Runner shorts, meaning he doesn't speak. See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: [referring to Wile E] You know, it's amazing the trouble this joker goes through to get a square meal. Eh, case in point...
[he shows off Wile E.'s latest rabbit trap, which involves a boulder suspended above the ground by a rope, a seesaw and a rifle]

It certainly isn't everyday when Bugs Bunny stands in as the Roadrunner
30 June 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Like anyone else watching Hare Breadth Hurry, I was expecting Roadrunner vs. Coyote. Instead, we got the one and only Bugs Bunny in his last of his collaborations with the devious Wile E. Coyote. The story admittedly is nothing special, being somewhat predictable, and it is not the fastest paced Looney Tunes cartoon ever made. But it is very funny without being exceptional. The animation is nice enough, especially with the backgrounds, and the music has enough energy to delight even the fussiest Looney Tunes fan, and anyone who knows me will know how particular I am about my music. The dialogue sparkles with wit, even if there is a lot more of it than anticipated, and the sight gags are unpredictable and funny. Both Bugs and Coyote are stellar, as are Mel Blanc's vocals, so overall, a very nice watch without being a masterpiece. 8/10 Bethany Cox
