    Trivia (2)

    • Tex Avery left Warner Bros. before he could produce any new cartoons featuring Cecil (the following Cecil cartoons were produced by either Bob Clampett or Friz Freleng). However, he introduced a similar character in 1943 named Droopy Dog. Droopy would even take some of his tricks from his slow-and-steady predecessor, such as using his relatives to help him outsmart a wolf.

    • Tortoise Beats Hare marks the first appearance of Cecil Turtle. He would later appear, again challenging Bugs to a race, in the shorts Tortoise Wins by a Hare (1942), and Rabbit Transit (1947).

    Allusions (1)

    • Tortoise Beats Hare - Plot Tortoise Beats Hare is, of course, a take off of the Aesop fable "The Tortoise and the Hare". But even more directly, it is Tex Avery's parody of the 1934 Disney Silly Symphony, "The Tortoise and the Hare". Interestingly, Max Hare, from the earlier Disney film, is often cited as one of the inspirations behind Bugs Bunny.
