Storyline

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

So what if Bugs Bunny lives in a tree!
29 July 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

In this Bugs Bunny episode, we meet the rascally rabbit living happily in a tree. And why are some people not OK with this? It is perfectly fine - it is actually quite a good touch to the episode - funny in some aspects.

Also, kissing can be quite funny, cartoon or real life. The way that the Looney Tunes characters used to do it can strike up a chuckle or two. In this day and age, I do not find it terribly funny, but it does not matter.

Anyhow, this is a very funny episode, another one of those ones where Bugs Bunny earns revenge from a nasty stage person. The animation of Bugs Bunny is good, the jokes are good (especially where Bugs Bunny is imitating a dog with his fingers) and the theme of the episode is used well.

In this short, a stage magician is putting up posters advertising his magic show. He so happens to pin a poster over the door of Bugs Bunny's home - a tree, funnily enough. Bugs Bunny starts to become annoyed with the stage magician, who in fact turns out to be an obnoxious meanie. Bugs Bunny will soon fight for revenge...

I recommend this Bugs Bunny episode for anyone who likes stage magic (a lot of the jokes here are based on it), old Bugs animation and Looney Tunes. Enjoy "Case of the Missing Hare"! :-)
