Case of the Missing Hare is a 1942 Warner Bros. cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series, directed by Chuck Jones and starring Bugs Bunny. The title is a typical play on words, and although it suggests a mystery story, it bears no apparent relationship to the plotline.
A magician named Ala Bahma is nailing self-promoting posters on every conceivable surface, including a tree in which Bugs is living. He protests having his home enroached and his right to private property compromised, until the magician apologises and offers Bugs blackberry pie. The rabbit's expression momentarily changes to joy as Ala Bahma magically brandishes a pie from underneath his cloth, then splatters it in Bugs's face. As the magician walks away saying "What a dumb bunny!", Bugs, with the bits of filling and crumbled crust from the pie on his face, calmly turns to the audience and, having decided that it is time to pay Ala Bahma back, says his famous Groucho Marx-inspired catchphrase: "Of course you realize, this means war!"
