Who’s going to throw whom out of the old lady’s house—Bugs Bunny or Sylvester the dog (played by Tedd Pierce)? The answer keeps changing in “Hare Force” (1944), a cartoon declared “a howl” by Film Daily. The dog picks up Bugs and walks toward the door. But turns things around and picks up the dog and heads in the same direction. I like how the switch is quickened simply by having multiple dogs and rabbits in a frame, instead of having two per frame.
Then the characters exchange places. The expressions are great; but you’ll never see them unless you freeze-frame the cartoon.
They switch back.
Who wins? Bugs and the dog. They throw out the old lady (played by Bea Benaderet).
