A Hare Grows in Manhattan

A Hare Grows in Manhattan is a 1947 Warner Bros. cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series, released on March 22, 1947 and directed by Friz Freleng. It stars Bugs Bunny and a pack of bulldogs (one resembles Hector). Unlike many cases where "hare" is a pun on "hair", the title here is a pun on a then-recent book which figures into the climax of the cartoon (however, it does also contain a punning reference to what hair does: grow).

Directed by Friz Freleng. Produced by Edward Selzer. Story by Michael Maltese and Tedd Pierce.
