11 - My Bunny Lies over the Sea.

My Bunny Lies over the Sea, a Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies cartoon, was released on December 14, 1948. This theatrical cartoon was directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese. Mel Blanc played both Bugs Bunny and the Scotsman. Some of the animators included Ken Harris, Lloyd Vaughan, and Phil Monroe.

The title is an obvious play on the second line of the old song, "My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean". The seven minute short has been released on DVD multiple times in different compilation discs, and is available on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 1. And, although this cartoon was the Scotsman's (named Angus MacRory) only theatrical appearance, he also later appeared in "It's a Plaid, Plaid, Plaid, Plaid World" episode (released on February 3, 1996) of The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries. He also made cameo appearances on a couple of Animaniacs episodes and in Space Jam.

Plot

This cartoon begins as Bugs Bunny once again gets lost when he is tunneling to his vacation spot. He accidentally ends up in Scotland, instead of the La Brea Tar Pits. Upon his arrival, he accidentally mistakes a Scotsman dressed in traditional clothes and playing the bagpipes for a lady being attacked by a monster. Bugs Bunny jumps the Scotsman trying to rescue the "woman", and in the process he smashes the man’s bagpipes into little pieces. The Scotsman, named Angus MacRory, becomes enraged that his bagpipes have been absolutely ruined and the angered MacRory challenges Bugs Bunny to a duel—a game of golf. Of course, throughout the game of golf Bugs Bunny manages to outsmart MacRory and eventually wins, much to the Scotsman's wrath. MacRory accepts defeat after Bugs clears himself of cheating, but still claims that he can't be beaten when it comes to playing bagpipes. After playing, he dares Bugs to 'try and top that,' which the rabbit does by dressing like a Scot and playing not only bagpipes, but also a trombone, saxophone, trumpet, two clarinets, cymbals on his feet, and a bass drum with his ears. Bugs takes one last glimpse at the audience before iris out.

Censorship

  • The version of this cartoon shown on CBS in the 1970s/1980s cut the part after the Scotsman McCrory shoots his rifle at Bugs where the bullet falls, McCrory picks it up, and asides to the audience that, "It's been in the family for years".

Later appearances of Angus MacCrory

  • Angus MacCrory makes his second major role in The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries episode, "It's A Plaid, Plaid, Plaid, Plaid World".
  • Angus MacCrory can be spotted on the bleachers watching the basketball playoff against the Monstars and the Toon Squad in Space Jam.
