In Hardaway and Dalton's Hare-Um Scare-Um, the white magician rabbit from Prest-O Change-O has become grey, and has developed two giant buck teeth.
This grey rabbit still acts like a 'duck in a rabbit suit' - he is wild, crazy and 'darn fooled!'
Watch him jump, splash and dive into the background - you can almost hear him yell "Woo woo! Woo woo!" can't you?
Here he treats us to a fun song and dance number...
But the singing and dancing can't last that long!
This image of the rabbit showing how thin and unappetizing he is proves to be particularly disturbing...
...and a friendly jolt of a handshake!
