Bugs falls in love with the mechanical bunny at the dog track and lures all the dogs but No. 7 off the track to rescue her. After finally getting rid of feisty No. 7, Bugs gets his reward.
Most Memorable Moment:
At the end of the cartoon, the mechanical bunny goes into its box at the end of the track. Bugs puts his face inside and kisses his "dreamboat", throwing his whole body into electric shock. His response? "Baby! This looks like the beginning of a be-yoo-tiful friendship." And he goes back for more.
