Final Race Of The Triple Crown
23 April 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

The is the last of the three Bugs Bunny versus Cecil The Turtle road races, a takeoff on the famous fable of the Tortoise and The Hare.

The writers go on the assumption apparently that few people are familiar with the first two of these Bugs Bunny-Cecil races because they begin the story with Bugs shocked by reading the famous Aesop Fable story about the tortoise beating the hare (even though he had done this twice before!)

At the sauna bath, where the two are lounging, Bugs makes the bet again, this time telling Cecil, "Listen, snail, I'll give you the post position and spot you 100 yards and I'll run backwards with my hands tied behind my back." He exaggerates but Cecil takes the bet, because he has secret advantage.

There are some very funny remarks, sight-gag jokes and asides-to-the-audience at the beginning of this race, which is to Grant's Tomb. The race itself is very strange, is all I can say. How these guys were in New York one minute, Chicago the next and Miami Beach is all quite a mystery. Only in the cartoons, I suppose.

The "jet age" angle was entertaining, but the ending was a bit lame.
