| "Even a genius can have an off day."
One of the few shorts where Wile E. Coyote takes time off from chasing the Road Runner to chase Bugs Bunny. In these shorts Wile E. talks and provides an intelligent opponent for Bugs. It's a different vibe from Bugs dealing with Daffy or the morons with guns or big brawny wrestler types. The plot here is pretty much irrelevant. The coyote tricks Bugs into leaving his rabbit hole and captures him. Bugs, of course, gets the upper hand and escapes. This leads to a series of attempts by Wile E. to get Bugs out of his rabbit hole or destroy him in the process.

Some funny puns and gags but the real treat is the way these two play off each other. Arrogant Wile E. is a pretty good adversary for wisecracking Bugs. The animation is solid, particularly for the time in which it was made when the animation in Looney Tunes shorts was devolving. The music is fun and the voicework, from the immortal Mel Blanc, is flawless. It's a Chuck Jones cartoon and, while it's not one of his masterpieces, I would argue any Chuck Jones short is worth your time. Well, maybe not those Tom & Jerry ones. That was his low point.
