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

Bugs Bunny's hunched-over walk and eyebrow-wagging are imitations of Groucho Marx. The evil scientist is a caricature of long time horror actor, Peter Lorre. 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

The second time Bugs Bunny defeated Gossamer/Rudolph the white-sneaker and large orange-furred monster, that is extremely eerie, wearing a knight or gladiator's uniform, Bugs Bunny hits it, while conducting a train. After hitting the knight uniform with a sword, the metal uniform then hits a wall and is turned into a tin can. The tin can is titled "CANNED MONSTER". See more »

"That's the trouble with some dames -- kiss 'em and they fly apart!"
1 October 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Classic Bugs Bunny short from the great Chuck Jones that gives us a Peter Lorre mad scientist, a female rabbit robot, and the first appearance of Gossamer, the big hairy orange monster that wears sneakers. A very funny cartoon with lots of clever gags and witty lines. Some really lovely animation with nicely-drawn characters and backgrounds. Rich Technicolor is always a plus in my book. Energetic score from Carl Stalling. Excellent voice work from the incomparable Mel Blanc. So many great moments but my favorite might be the "doctor in the house" gag. A truly wonderful cartoon that should bring a smile to even the most curmudgeonly of faces.
