Compressed Hare is a Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Chuck Jones and featuring Bugs Bunny and Wile E. Coyote (in their fourth pairing), released on July 29, 1961. This is the final first-run Golden Age short in which Wile E. Coyote speaks, although he speaks again in the Adventures of the Road Runner featurette from a year later.

Bugs Bunny[edit]

  • Scratched one genius! [notices Wile E coming with a cannon] Uh oh! Not so fast, Rabbit!


Bugs Bunny: [as Wile E. Coyote is tying him to a spit] I'm your new neighbor from down the street. I brought you those carrots you asked about. Personally, I don't think a stew is a stew without carrots. [sniffs] Mmm, what kinda stew is it? [dips his ear in the pot and tastes it] Mmm-mmm. Rabbit ear stew. Very good too. Er, I'd love to stay for lunch, but I seem to be all tied up this morning.
Wile E. Coyote: Oh, you're staying for lunch, alright. You are lunch [licks his lips with his tongue]. Oh, what kind of wine would be with wild game? You are game, aren't you?
Bugs Bunny: Oh, er, I'm game, all right. [hops on floor, dislodging a cork from one of the wine bottles into Wile E.'s eye]
Wile E. Coyote: Now look here, me bucko!
[Bugs hops again and another cork pops; Wile E. ducks to avoid the cork, but it ricochets across the room and opens an ironing board, which hits Wile E. on the head; Bugs hops back home]

Wile E. Coyote: [carries a wheelbarrow full of cement] Quick-drying cement! [carries the wheelbarrow of quick-drying cement to Bugs Bunny's hole] Special delivery!
Bugs Bunny: Send it right down!
Wile E. Coyote: All right! [throws cement down Bugs' hole, then tiptoes away] What a wonderful way to cement a friendship. [Suddenly, a pillar of cement pops up from the ground; Wile E. bumps into it and it falls on top of him]
Bugs Bunny: Well, now he has concrete evidence that I'm a good neighbor.

[Last lines; Wile E tries to trick Bugs into eating a iron carrot and then getting drawn by a huge magnet, but he instead attracts everything except Bugs, including a mercury rocket that explodes into his house]
Bugs Bunny: One thing’s for sure: we’re the first country to get a coyote into orbit.
