Tortoise Beats Hare - 1941

    Bugs Bunny and Cecil Turtle

    March 15, 1941

    Supervision by Fred Avery - Story by Dave Monahan - Animation by Charles McKimson - Musical Direction by Carl Stalling

    Bugs races Cecil, who posts spitting-image relatives all along the course. When Bugs himself reads the title card, mispronouncing the credits, and discovers the name and outcome of the picture, he screams, "The big bunch of joiks."
