| "Now what could have gotten into Wover?"
Elmer Fudd's dog Rover (or Wover, as Elmer says it) is watching a TV program about masters who shoot their dogs when they're old and have worn out their usefulness ("Two go out...but only one comes back"). This freaks poor Rover out. When Elmer suggest they go on a hunting trip, Rover is convinced this is a set-up. So he decides to kill Elmer before Elmer can kill him! Thankfully for Elmer, things don't quite go the way Rover plans them. This is a wonderfully crazy short, as the best Looney Tunes shorts were. Rover's attempts to kill Elmer are hilarious. Great animation, music, and voicework. This is one everybody should enjoy, especially the dog lovers out there.
