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

"Case" of the giggles!
25 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

TIDBIT - Hey, all you up-and-coming magicians: it's not a good idea to get a bunny mad at you.

In "Case of the Missing Hare", Bugs Bunny takes matters in hand when vile magician Ala Bama (as mystical as the same-named state) plasters posters for his show all over Bugs' woodland home and gets plastered himself with a blackberry pie. Of course you realize, this means war!

That night at the theatre, the magician finds himself embarrassed, humiliated, clobbered and otherwise cut down to size by the vengeful Bugs as Ala tries to pres-ti-digi-toot (or pull) a rabbit out of his hat and fails...several times.

Director Jones and writer Pierce create a case for all magicians to stick with working with more docile animals...like tigers or lions, maybe. And as always, Mel Blanc's voices make it all the funnier.

Ten stars and a RED LIGHT for this nut "Case".
