No Parking Hare is a 1954 Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Robert McKimson.


The title of the short is a pun on the common ordinance "no parking here."


Construction is underway for a new freeway, with the work waking Bugs and covering him with dirt. Bugs confronts a burly construction worker (voiced by John Smith), and when he realizes that a freeway is to go through, he declares that he's not moving. The construction worker tries to pack dynamite around Bugs' hole, but only succeeds in creating a large narrow pillar with Bugs' home still intact ("I hear ya knockin', but ya can't come in!")

The construction worker continues to try to get Bugs out, usually with explosives, but Bugs always manages to outwit the worker. The worker eventually tries to pour a large amount of concrete on top of the hole, but when it dries, he finds out that Bugs diverted the concrete around his hole and defiantly placed a door and mailbox on top. In an end similar to "Homeless Hare", the freeway is ultimately abruptly diverted around the hole. Bugs pops out to declare: "The sanctity of the American home must be preserved!"


Warner Bros. Entertainment Wiki has a collection of images and media related to No Parking Hare.


  • When this cartoon aired on ABC, the six attempts by the construction worker to get back at Bugs were reduced to three, with the following scenes cut:[1]
    • Bugs reads Edgar Allan Poe, the construction worker tries to saw through Bugs' dwelling and ends up getting zapped with electricity when his circular saw hits a fuse box.
    • Bugs singing "There Ain't No Place Like A Hole In The Ground". The worker is flying over the hole with a helicopter, drops a bomb as Bugs rises from his bed to turn the page of the sheet music, and gets blown up after the bomb bounces back to the helicopter off Bugs' bed.
    • The construction worker builds scaffolding made of pipes, climbs to the top of Bugs' hole with a stick of dynamite, and tries to light it, only to be beaten by Bugs who blows a match that detonates the dynamite stick and sends the scaffolding (and the construction worker) crashing down.
  • The CBS airing of this cartoon left the Poe and Hole in the Ground sequences intact, but edited the scaffolding scene to remove the construction worker holding the dynamite, the construction worker trying to light the dynamite, Bugs blowing the match through the pipes to ignite it, and the resulting explosion. The edited version makes it seem that the scaffolding fell because of its slipshod construction.[1]


  • Similar in plot to "Homeless Hare", Bugs finds himself squaring off against a construction worker who wants to build over his hole in the ground.
