Storyline

A wind-up toy in the shapely shape of a female rabbit lures Bugs Bunny out of his rabbit hole and into the castle of an evil scientist who looks exactly like Peter Lorre. The scientist wants to feed the rabbit to his huge, sneaker-wearing monster. The beast, completely covered in orange hair, is frightening enough to leave our hero temporarily speechless - forcing him to hold up a sign that says, "Yipe!" But Bugs Bunny is not easily cowed, and soon the wily rabbit is disguising himself in turns as a lamp, a chatty manicurist, a figure in a framed portrait and a knight on a charging horse, tricking and frustrating his nightmarish opponent at every turn.

Trivia

The orange monster has no name in this cartoon. He is known as Ruda in Water, Water Every Hare (1952), then as Gossamer in Duck Dodgers and the Return of the 24½th Century (1980). The latter name is the one most familiar to cartoon fans. See more »

Goofs

When Bugs announces that he is going to "...exit, stage right.", he is actually moving stage left; "stage right" and "stage left" are opposite the directions as seen by the audience. Bugs should have said either "stage left" or "house right". See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: And so, having disposed of the monster, exit our hero through the front door, stage right, none the worse for his harrowing experience.

Crazy Credits

Gossamer ran away, after Bugs Bunny pointed out the theatre audience to Gossamer and cameras, just like its shadow ran away, three minutes earlier that the filming was occurring. Gossamer then ran away, after looking & saying People! in extreme fear or shock. Less than five seconds, after Bugs Bunny scared Gossamer away, Peter Lorre charactered evil-scientist second mechanical rabbit smooches Bugs Bunny & attracts him, Bugs follows it. After saying "So, it's mechanical!" & starts following it, the closing credits & music begin. See more »

an absolute joy
14 June 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful Bugs Bunny cartoon! Apart from great production values and writing, this movie marks the first appearance of the cute giant orange hairy monster that will later appear in other Warner cartoons.

Bugs is in an old creepy castle when he realizes that the crazy doctor (clearly patterned after Peter Lorre) is trying to kill him for his evil experiments. Bugs fleas and the doctor unleashes his secret weapon--a giant hairy orange monster wearing tennis shoes! He's really awfully cute, though also quite intent on capturing Bugs. Well, Bugs responds by using his cleverness to beat the monster and escape. A wonderful and funny cartoon. It especially excels when it breaks through the fourth wall--and involves the audience!

If you liked this cartoon, try watching WATER, WATER, EVERY HARE (1952)--a follow-up to this movie.
