Uncredited cast:
Bugs Bunny / Ala Bahma (voice) (uncredited)


Ala Bahma the magician is nailing posters advertising his magic show everywhere, even on the tree home to Bugs Bunny. Bugs, not wanting to have a poster nailed over his home, ends up getting a pie in the face by the magician and vows revenge ("Of course you realize this means war"). Later, at the magic show, Bugs pulls many interesting gags to heckle the magician and even pretends to be a small boy from the audience who volunteers to help with a magic trick. Bugs then finishes it all off at the end with a pie in Ala Bahma's face and a Hawaiian song. Written by cjqtwm

Excellent cartoon which demands endless rewatching
29 June 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is another gem from Chuck Jones, and one of Bugs Bunny's finest shorts. An obnoxious, portly magician makes the mistake of annoying the resourceful Bugs ("of course you realize this means war!") who pulls out all the stops to destroy the trickster's evening performance at the local theatre. The gags range from the subtle (Bugs made up as a sickly sweet schoolboy in a huge bowtie and sailor suit never fails to crack me up) to the broad (exploding cigars and boarded-up top hats) but none of them miss the target, and Mel Blanc offers another virtuoso performance as the voices of both characters. I watched this over and over again on video as a youngster, and it's still one of my all-time favourite cartoons. "What a performance Doc gave 'em! What a performance!"
