―March Hare

The March Hare is The Mad Hatter's best friend in Alice in Wonderland. Of course, he's mad, too. It is him Alice decides to visit. In the book the film was based on, it was explained that this was because it was the month of May and Alice hoped he might be less mad as a result.

The Hare has been voiced by Jerry Colonna, Maurice LaMarche and Jeff Bennett.

Background

Personality

The March Hare (just like everyone else in Wonderland) is mad. The hare is best friends with the Mad Hatter and enjoys tea just as much as him. Although they are close and both insane, March Hare seems to be a bit more loud and wild than the Hatter who is abit more gentleman like. Besides the Cheshire Cat, the March Hare seems to be the only one not to have a true fear of the Queen of Hearts being that he was capable of screaming in her face "Nothing Whatever!"

Appearances

The Mad Tea Party

March Hare first appears in the middle of the film having tea with Mad Hatter and the Doormouse. As they sing the Unbirthday song they are interrupted by Alice who commented she enjoys their singing pleasing the hare. The March Hare explains to Alice the purpose of an unbirthday and she joins for tea. March Hare continuously cuts Alice off as she tries to tell how she ended up in Wonderland. When the party is intruded again by the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter claims his watch is two days slow and with the March Hare's assistants fills it up with unnecessary things like jam. The watch then goes mad and the hare smashes it with a mallet and celebrates the White Rabbit's birthday by tossing him out the party.

Trial

Later on, when the Queen of Hearts calls a trial upon Alice for the crime publicly embarrassing her majesty, the March Hare is one of the witnesses called forth to speak of the incident. However, when asked what he knows of the situation, he answers "Nothing!". Moments later, he and the Mad Hatter celebrate the Queen's Unbirthday after the King of Hearts mentions the day being such, distracting from the actual trail at hand. When the Cheshire Cat arrives at the party, though, the Dormouse goes into a panic, with the King trying to stop him with a mallet, accidentally whacking the Queen, instead. The Hatter and the Hare are able to escape her wrath, however.

The Chase

Lastly, the Hare and Hatter are seen as Alice tries to escape the Queen and her card soldiers, insisting that she stay in Wonderland for a cup of tea, only to soon vanish as the girl's entire adventure was nothing more than a dream.

Bonkers

The March Hare and Mad Hatter are recurring characters, living around the Hollywood sign.

The duo notably played a large role in the episode "In the Bag", where the Mad Hatter requested the services of Bonkers and Lucky to investigate the disappearances of their tea cups. Some time afterwards, the the duo are robbed again. Not only that, the March Hare was kidnapped, as well, with the Hatter following afterwards. In the end, though, it's revealed they were taken by a hammer-space bag longing for their attention and friendship.

House of Mouse

March Hare makes regular appearances in the show, often seen with Mad Hatter having tea as usual. In the episode "Dennis the Duck", he comments on all the black-and-white characters, calling them an animated bunch and the Hatter responds "Aren't we all?".

Video games

Kingdom Hearts

The March Hare never directly appears in the series; he and the Mad Hatter are trapped in a painting at their Tea Party Garden that offers small prizes for Sora and friends if they sit in the chair.

Kinect Disneyland Adventures

The March Hare plays a minor role in the game, only seen at the Mad Tea Party section of the Alice in Wonderland mini game. Here, the March Hare and the Mad Hatter are having tea with Alice when a stranger (the player) drops in. They invite the player to dance along with them as part of the party.

Disney Parks

Prior to the 1990s, the March Hare used to appear as a meetable character at the Disney parks, often appearing alongside the Mad Hatter. However, while the Hatter still regularly appears at the parks, the Hare oddly almost never appears as a walk-around character anymore.

In 2013, as part of the Disney Dreamers Everywhere event, the March Hare returned as a meet-and-greet character at Disneyland Paris.

Alice in Wonderland

The March Hare and Mad Hatter appear in the final scene of the attraction at their Mad Tea Party.
