Rabbit's Feat is a 1960 Looney Tunes cartoon featuring Bugs Bunny and Wile E. Coyote, directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese. As Maltese had left for Hanna-Barbera, his name was removed from the credits (although his name remained on the credits for "The Mouse on 57th Street" a year later).


Bugs is pursued by Wile E. Coyote, who fancies himself as a "genius" who can easily capture Bugs for dinner. Bugs is able to easily foil Coyote's plans, finally blowing him up with a hand grenade that the Coyote had tried to use on him. In the end, a dazed Coyote emerges from the rabbit hole saying "How do you do? I am a vegetarian. My name is Mud. Is there a doctor in the house?" Bugs says to the audience "Well, like the man says, don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out of it alive."



  • On CBS, the part where Wile lunges for Bugs and falls into the cauldron of water intended for the rabbit is cut.[1]
  • On the now-defunct WB channel, the part where Wile's gun discharges its bullets and blasts him in the face after Bugs moves the gunsight to the other side of the barrel was removed.[1]


Rabbit's Feat reuses the plot from Operation: Rabbit (1952) and To Hare Is Human (1956).

Running Gags

  • Bugs kisses Wile whenever the coyote is about to do something he will regret (i.e. attempting to outsmart Bugs while trying to shoot Bugs with a rifle).
