Bugs challenges Cecil Turtle to race, only this time he's wearing an aerodynamic suit like Cecil's. Unfortunately, the gambling ring has bet everything on the rabbit, and Bugs now looks like a tortoise.
The dialog between Bugs (in his old-timer disguise) and Cecil is drawn heavily from catch phrases used in the radio program, Fibber McGee and Molly. (Example: "That ain't the way I heered it, Johnny!")
You fools! What are you doing? I'm the rabbit! The rabbit! Look, I'm the rabbit!
Rabbit Thugs: Eh, now he tells us.
The original ending to this cartoon had all of the gangster rabbits lined up next to one another so that they could shoot themselves in the head with a single bullet. After the shot was fired, they fell dead to the ground and that was the end. This ending is rarely shown on television anymore; the cartoon abruptly fades to black instead.
