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.

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.

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
