Tortoise Beats Hare
Ah yes. This one was posted on request, but I actually meant to post this one anyway. This was Tex Avery's 2nd Bugs Bunny cartoon after his sucessful "A Wild Hare". Now it's here where an extra dimension of Bug's personality unfolds: if you put the heckling hare into a situation that he isn't in control of, like here, then Bugs will turn into the heckled and in the end, tries to figure out just how and why he lost.
Now here's a model sheet from Tex's department by Bob Givens (I think).
Here's the cartoon.
