His Hare-Raising Tale is a 1951 Looney Tunes cartoon, starring Bugs Bunny and Clyde Bunny. Bugs tells his nephew Clyde about his many adventures, using clips from Baseball Bugs, Stage Door Cartoon, Rabbit Punch, Falling Hare, and Haredevil Hare.

Plot

Bugs Bunny and his nephew Clyde Bunny are sitting on a couch looking at a scrap book depicting various photographs and newspaper clippings of Bugs. In this cartoon Clyde is unnamed.

Segment one has Clyde asking if Uncle Bugs was a baseball pitcher and Bugs replying that he was "the best". This segment uses clips from Baseball Bugs, though Bugs refers to the opposing team as "The Boston Argyle Socks" rather than the Gas-House Gorillas. Bugs does not reveal the conclusion of his baseball hit but when his nephew asks what happened, Bugs replies that he went into Vaudeville.

Segment two uses a clip from Stage Door Cartoon. Bugs' nephew then asks what happened with the act and Bugs says he broke it up because "my partner demanded equal billing" and then adds that "there was more money in boxing anyway".

Segment three has Bugs telling his nephew that he fought "The Champ" at "Madison Round Garden". Two clips from Rabbit Punch are used. By Round 110 Bugs says the fight ended because "along came the war".

In segment four, a brief clip from Falling Hare is shown as Bugs explains that he was a test pilot assigned to a supersonic aircraft (an anachronism since it wasn't until 1947 that genuinely supersonic aircraft were developed). He further explains that while flying the aircraft something went wrong and it heads toward the ground, nose first, then stops a few inches from impact because the plane "ran out of gas".

In the last segment, Bugs' nephew looks at him with admiration and says: "Gosh, Uncle Bugs, you've been everyplace, I guess...except the moon", when Bugs replies that he's been there too, and points to newspaper clipping in the scrapbook. Then a clip from Haredevil Hare is shown. Bugs then begins to explain that he was lucky that he had plenty of carrots, because it took scientists 22 years to build a ladder to reach him.

After the moon story Bugs' nephew looks at him with unimpressed skepticism, prompting Bugs to reply: "Don't you believe me? Why if every word I've said isn't true, I hope I'm run over by a streetcar", and suddenly a streetcar appears in the room and runs over Bugs. He then looks at his alarmed nephew and says: "I suppose you don't believe I was run over by a streetcar!"

Trivia

  • The five clips from these cartoons all belonged to the pre-1948 AAP library, which was one of the reasons why this cartoon did not air as much as the other post-1948 cartoons on television during the 1970s, 80s and early 90s (possibly due to copyright issues with a.a.p. and its successor companies UA, MGM and Turner) including ABC, Nickelodeon, and The WB, until 1996 (where Time Warner and Turner had merged, allowing the pre-1948 and post-1948 cartoons to air together on television).
