Hare-Breadth Hurry is a 1963 Warner Bros. Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Chuck Jones and Maurice Noble. The short was released on June 8, 1963, and stars Bugs Bunny and Wile E. Coyote. In the short, Bugs takes the Roadrunner's place in a cartoon, and the Bugs/Coyote roles and rules become confused.
- [During a typical Wile E Coyote and Road Runner chase, the speeding object of the coyote's chase stops, revealing it to be Bugs Bunny] Hi! I suppose you're expecting the Road Runner. Well, he sprained a giblet cornering a sharp curve the other day. So, Uh, I'm standing in for him. Uh oh! Here comes that old coyote now! Better get on me horse! Meep! Meep! [runs off]
- You know, it's amazing the trouble this joker goes through to get a square meal. Eh, case in point... [he shows off Wile E.'s latest rabbit trap, which involves a boulder suspended above the ground by a rope, a seesaw and a rifle]
- Here we go again! He doesn't give up easy, does he?
- [as he times the coyote's run and Wile E appears] Yep! Here comes the old 5-15 now! Right on time!
- Do you realize he almost hit this door?
- [pretending to talk to the coyote over the phone] Hello. This is the telephone company. You haven't paid your telephone bill lately, so we're going to have to cut you off. Sorry. [cuts line with scissors; the coyote falls to the ground]
- [last lines] The moral is, never get cut off in the middle of a long distance fall.
