Looney TV: The Grey Hounded Hare (1949)

Ye scribe's introduction to greyhound racing came in the form of this Bugs Bunny offering from 1949.

In "The Grey Hounded Hare", Bugs is at a race track, and doesn't realize that the mechanical rabbit that leads the dogs around the track is called a lure. Now, carrots are supposed to help one's vision, so you'd think Bugs would've known the difference, but for once, he's played like a sap.

There used to be greyhound racing in Vermont, in a converted horse racing track, but the track gave up the ghost for good several years ago. Never went there, but read and heard of it.

Rating: B.
