From TibbyH :

A hilarious introduction to a humorous, experimental series, "Hawks and Doves" is one of DePatie-Freleng's finest shorts. Directed by the very underrated Hawley Pratt, it is the start of the intentionally inconsistant Roland and Rattfink series. Hawley Pratt was an excellent draftsman, and the designs and animation are fun to watch and artistic. Pratt's direction and his great team of animators put out an excellent short and further details the strengths of DePatie-Freleng. Plus, I just can't get enough of the title characters Roland and Rattfink.
