Half-Fare Hare is a 1956 animated Merrie Melodies cartoon featuring Bugs Bunny.


Bugs Bunny boards the Chattanooga Choo Choo and finds two hoboes who look and act like Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton, from The Honeymooners TV show, who want to eat Bugs after being hungry for days.


The cartoon features the song Carolina in the Morning, rather than the more obvious choice Chattanooga Choo Choo; Carolina in the Morning 's faster melodic rhythm and emphatic downbeats complement the timing of the action in the cartoon. [1]
