Bugs decides to pay a visit to a dog racetrack. While the dogs are eating, he checks some of them out. When he looks dog #7 ("Gnawbone") in the mouth, the dog gets angry and lunges at Bugs. Mistaking a mechanical rabbit for a real female rabbit, Bugs falls in love with it and and attempts to save "her" from the pursuing dogs. Chaos ensues!
On ABC, the scene after Gnawbone falls from the sky after chasing a rabbit balloon, where Gnawbone grabs Bugs' throat and prepares to punch him, but gets distracted by the mechanical rabbit, prompting Bugs to light a stick of dynamite and make Gnawbone fetch it, causing it to explode was edited to make it look like Gnawbone exploded when he hit the ground from falling.
