BIOGRAPHICAL DETAILS: Max is flashy, cocky and very arrogant; Toby is shy, kind and gullible. Both became embroiled in a competition to see who was fastest. The Aesopian tale proved Max's cockiness was his downfall, while Toby's surefooted, steady endurance made him the winner. In their second meeting, during a boxing match, Toby's endurance proved him a winner once more. Max Hare and Toby Tortoise headlined a comic story of their own called "The Boarding-School Mystery" in the Silly Symphony Sunday strip, beginning Dec. 23, 1934. There Max's would-be girlfriend, Carrie, appears, although she can't really be called his girlfriend per se -- his bragging turns her off.
