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. Written by J. Spurlin

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 is being held by the neck by Gossamer/Rudolph, he says, "Look, out there in the audience." When he says the "Out there in the audience" part, his mouth doesn't move. The Hair Raising Hare Schematics on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection prove this: during the part where you see the goof, you also see that the "out there in the audience" part was added in a different color ink.

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 »

Hair-Raising Hare (1946)

*** (out of 4)

Fun Merrie Melodies short has Bugs Bunny being lured into a creepy castle where a mad scientist wants to feed him to a large, red-headed monster. This film was semi remade six years later as WATER, WATER EVERY HARE and I enjoyed that one more. That doesn't mean this one isn't any good but it is a case where I prefer the remake. With that said, this one here spoofs the horror genre fairly well with the mention of Dracula and Frankenstein. The best thing is the mad scientist, which is a carbon copy of the great Peter Lorre. Another plus is good ol' Bugs who is full of great one-liners and some fun action.
