Storyline

Bugs Bunny is too sound a sleeper to notice that a sudden rainstorm has flooded his rabbit hole and sent his mattress, with him on it, floating downstream toward a castle with helpful neon signs that say "Evil Scientist" and "Boo." Said Evil Scientist needs a brain for his mechanical monster, and when he sees Bugs Bunny floating by, decides a rabbit's brain is as good as any other. Bugs Bunny awakens to the horror of reposing mummies, an Evil Scientist with a huge, green head and an enormous robot waiting for its brain. Bugs tries to escape, but the scientist sends Rudolph after him. Rudolph is an unlikely beast covered with orange fur; it wears sneakers, but why not? Who says monsters don't have sensitive feet? Bugs poses as a chatty hairdresser, uses vanishing fluid on himself, and pours reducing fluid on the beast to thwart him. But Bugs's only weapon against the Evil Scientist will be a broken bottle of ether. Will it be enough? Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

The orange monster is very similar (if not identical) to Gossamer, but named Rudolph in this cartoon. The mad scientist in this short is patterned after Boris Karloff right down to the heavy eyebrow, and Dr. Frankenstein riffs that made Karloff a household name to most folks in the 40's and 50's.

Quotes

Evil Scientist: There is a rabbit loose in the castle, Rudolph. Return him to me, and I shall reward you with a spider goulash.

a terrific followup to A HAIR-RAISING HARE (1946)
14 June 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A HAIR-RAISING HARE was a wonderful cartoon featuring Bugs Bunny and the attempts by a mad scientist to use him for his evil experiments. The film also featured the orange monster as the scientist's evil assistant.

Well, they are back, though slightly changed due to the passing of six years between the two cartoon shorts. Plus this time the scientist is not modeled after Peter Lorre, but is a large cranium-ed Boris Karloff wannabe. But the cute orange monster is pretty much the same and Bugs is once again at the top of his game in his attempts to foil these two. This cartoon only receives a slightly lower score because it was less original and ground-breaking that A HAIR-RAISING HARE.

The water in the title refers to a flood that takes Bugs and his bed to and from the mad scientist's home.
