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

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 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 »

Enjoyable 'Monster Mash' At 'Peter Lorre's' Castle
2 February 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

"Peter Lorre" playing an "evil scientist" (that's what it says in neon lights on his hilltop castle!) who has invented a mechanical "rabbit lure" sets out the diabolical hare on Bugs Bunny. The mechanical lure - a beautiful female - quickly lures Bugs to the castle. Bugs grabs her, kisses her madly on the hand and arm, and the machine literally starts spinning and falls apart.

"That's the trouble with some dames," says Bugs. "Kiss them and they fly apart."

Bugs attempts to leave but the scientist won't let him and wants to introduce him to his other "friend." Bugs tries to escape but can't, and then this big furry monster comes out and chases our hero all over the castle. They stop here and there as Bugs pretends to be a lampshade, pretends to be a manicurist (and does the monster's nails with a hilarious impression of a manicurist), pretends to be a painting on the wall and assorted other bizarre things....all making it a very entertaining cartoon.

The ending of this was really clever with Bugs talking to the audience in the movie theater!
