In “Tales Of The Vienna Woods,” Bugs foils hunter Porky and his dog. Bugs, Porky and Porky’s dog do a bal­let, with Bugs don­ning drag to appear as a bal­le­rina. The sec­ond piece, “The Blue Danube,” is a spoof of “The Ugly Duck­ling,” with a baby black duck– not unlike a juve­nile Daffy– sav­ing the day when the swans are threat­ened by a goofy buzzard.
