Loopy de Loop was Hanna Barbera's one venture into cinematic shorts in the late 50's and early 60's. This one comes from around the middle of Loopy's run, in 1962. It's nothing special. Loopy encounters another wolf who is out chasing a rabbit, and tries to persuade him that this is morally wrong (in fact he tries to talk him into switching to soybeans sandwiches). This meets with no success at all, of course. The rabbits overhear it though, and thoroughly approve, encouraging Loopy. It soon turns out that he has more on his plate that he can handle though, as the rabbit turns out to have endless numbers of cousins, all of whom need protecting from the other wolf, who has a rather endearing way of saying "Aww, shutup!", as one of them is pleading for his life. It's nothing special. The only thing that makes it work really is that Loopy is a cool character, and his French-Canadian accent and general suave personality are lots of fun. As a theatrical short though, this is pretty ordinary.
