The Goofy Gophers is a 1946 Warner Bros. Looney Tunes cartoon released on January 25, 1947. It stars the Goofy Gophers with a cameo by Bugs Bunny at the end (whose voice in this film is sped up).[1] The WB animators, by this time, were now widely using Robert McKimson's version of Bugs's design.

This is one of the latest-released pre-August 1948[2] WB cartoons to enter the public domain, as United Artists (successor-in-interest to Associated Artists Productions) failed to renew the copyright in time.


The cartoon opens up with a dog guarding a vegetable garden and falling asleep. The dog spots two gophers eating carrots. The dog disguises himself as a tomato vine and poses as an actual plant in the garden. The Gophers spot the tomato vine, with one of them imitating Bugs Bunny. After grabbing a bunch of vegetables, the Gophers throw a pumpkin on the dog and hit him with a shovel. The gags are plenty as the Gophers continue to outwit their canine nemesis. Eventually, they launch the dog, via rocket, into space towards the moon. The Gophers, now triumphant, gloat that they will have all the carrots to themselves. But suddenly a familiar "Eh..." is heard; the camera pans to the side, revealing Bugs Bunny (sped up voice): "Well, I wouldn't say that!" Bugs laughs as the cartoon irises-out.
