Title card

Falling Hare is a 1943 Warner Bros. cartoon directed by Robert Clampett, and starring Bugs Bunny in the Merrie Melodies cartoon series. As with many Bugs Bunny cartoons, the title is a play on words; "falling hair" refers to impending baldness, while in this cartoon’s climax the title turns out to be descriptive of Bugs’s situation (a hare falling / crashing to earth).


Bugs Bunny: [had just been hit in the head with a wrench] Which way did he go, George, which way did he go?
The Gremlin: Hmmm... [points in both directions] That way.
Bugs Bunny: Well, gee, thanks a lot George, thanks a lot. [taking his first step, he immediately falls to the floor]
The Gremlin: [runs over to Bugs and pulls his eyelids open] What's the matter, bunny rabbit? Speak to me. Why don't you say something?
Bugs Bunny: I'm only three-and-a-half years old. B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b.
The Gremlin: I like him, he's silly!
