It marks the first appearance of Beaky Buzzard in a Warner Bros. short. In the short, Mama Buzzard wants her children to learn to bring back meat for dinner. One buzzardling is shy and has to be kicked out of the nest. He's told to at least bring back a rabbit.
- You naughty naughty boy!
- Bugs Bunny: Eh, what's up, Doc?
- Beaky Buzzard: [yo the tune of “Blues in the Night”] My mama done told me, "Bring home something for dinner."
- Bugs Bunny: Really? What's cooking? What is it you're looking for?
- Beaky Buzzard: Well, it's...um...it's...Now don't tell me! Don't tell me!...It's, um... [He suddenly grabs Bugs] It's a rabbit.
- [After Bugs falls down and lands on the ground, he is soon to realize that the bones, were somehow his]
- Bugs Bunny: [crying; then pauses crying] Gruesome, isn’t it? [He then resumes crying; his feet approach from the ground. He stops crying, touches his feet and starts laughing] Eh. I knew it all the time!
- [Last lines; Beaky falls into the hole in front of the skeleton bones]
- Beaky Buzzard: [sees bones] What the...Ooooh, MAAA!
- [Mama appears and sees her son is a skeleton]
- Mama Buzzard: [to Bugs] Hey! What did you do to my poor little kid?!
- Bugs Bunny: Keep your shirt on lady, the kid's okay! [He yanks Beaky out of the hole by the neck] Look!
- Mama Buzzard: [relieved] Oh, my baby! [She kisses Beaky, causing him to chuckle; glaring at Bugs] And you! [She turns sweetly] You're my hero! [She kisses him]
- [Bugs chuckles like Beaky as he blushes before the cartoon ends]
