Originally part of the Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales TV special, this later Chuck Jones effort is surprisingly not terrible. I say surprisingly because, let's face it, 99.9% of the post-classic era Looney Tunes are garbage or garbage approximate. This one also pales in comparison to earlier greats but it's pretty watchable and even amusing in spots. The animation is colorful but flat like you might expect from something produced for television. The score sounds like it's canned but still fits the action better than most of Bill Lava's inferior '60s music. None of the gags are all that great but the wintry backdrop is something different. It's Chuck Jones' first Road Runner short in over a decade and arguably his last good one. He did one more the following year and another in the '90s but neither were remarkable.
