Poor Granny! The early Bugs is a real stinker in this entertaining short
Granny has just tucked Sylvester the dog in for the night when she hears a knock at the door. She opens it and sees a half-frozen Bugs Bunny, who is exaggerating his sorry plight for effect. Granny buys the act and lets Bugs sleep right next to Sylvester in front of the fireplace. But the jealous dog is having none of it. The first chance he gets, he throws Bugs back out in the cold. Bugs plays on the dog's pity to get back in but can't resist a dirty trick. When a snow sculpture of himself melts, Sylvester thinks it's the real rabbit and succumbs to paroxysms of guilt before he discovers the ruse. From then on, the two play a game of one-upmanship that ends when Granny gets in on the game.

Bugs Bunny made a smart career move when he began playing a more sympathetic character—still violent but only when sorely provoked. Still, you gotta love the jerk he often was in his early films. He gets Sylvester to feel sorry for his unkind actions; he could have left it at that. But no, he has to go and torment the dog and generally cause trouble. And what Bugs does at the end?

"Ain't I a stinker?" Yeah, Bugs, you really are!
