A round little-boy bunny who's a member of a football team befriends a lost, but irrepressibly chummy, angular hunting dachshund and names him Sniffy. Sniffy is enlisted into the rabbits' football game. A predatory fox is out "fishing" for rabbits. He tricks Sniffy away from the field and uses a butterfly to catch the rabbits. The fox returns, but Sniffy becomes the hero of the day- and a permanent member of the team- when he rescues all the rabbits from the fox's clutches.
