Episode Information

"White Hare" (originally titled "Hide nor Hare") is the second episode of the third season and one-hundred-third episode of The Loud House.

Plot

Lincoln has a plan for introducing himself to a new girl.

Synopsis

Lincoln is planning on meeting a new girl in town, and wants to make a good first impression. Donning a leather jacket, some slick shades, a temporary tattoo, and a book featuring slang, Lincoln is prepared to leave, but his sisters catch him trying to sneak out. Lincoln tries to convince them that he has nothing to hide, but Clyde calls him up, and unknowing reveals that Lincoln is planning on introducing himself to a new girl. The sisters offer to help, but Lincoln, remembering the last time his sisters meddled with his private business, refuses, and runs away from the house. In the woods, Lincoln decides to hide until the bus arrives. As he relaxes, he discovers a male rabbit hopping by, and being crowded by his 25 sisters. When Lincoln imagines how difficult it is to live with 15 extra sisters, he gets startled, and hits his head on a tree branch, causing him to hallucinate.

Lincoln, now a rabbit named Warren, tries to leave the house, but gets caught by his 25 sisters. Warren tries to convince them that he has nothing to hide, but his friend, a beaver named Danny, unknowingly reveals Warren's plans, and the sisters eventually begin to meddle. Not wanting to be interfered, Warren attempts to run away, but just before Warren can escape, he is caught and the sisters eventually strip Warren of all his wardrobe, and make him wear a simple lavender polo shirt, as well as give off some advice they consider useful, and an assortment of items, such as a bunch of books, a kelp smoothie, allergy test pads, and a lucky rabbit's foot (much to everyone's disgust).

Upon leaving, Warren encounters the new girl, and attempts to give off a first good impression using his sister's advice, but only ends up making the new girl more uncomfortable and irritated, since Warren would constantly flub up his attempts to make a good impression. Eventually, a rabbit donning a leather jacket and some slick shades arrives, and successfully impresses the new girl with his leather jacket. Realizing he blew his chance, Warren sadly sits on a tree stump in defeat, and Danny meets up with him. As Danny remarks that Warren has to wait for a new girl to arrive in town before he can make another good impression, Warren frustratingly admits that his sisters always meddle with his business. After tossing the rabbit's foot he was given, Warren suddenly falls over, and begins hallucinating once more.

S3E02A Perfect the way you are

The real you is the perfect you.

Lincoln finally wakes back up, and discovers the male rabbit being smothered by his sisters. When Lincoln realizes that the rabbit got to make a good impression with a female rabbit, Lincoln realizes that his sisters might have had some advice into helping. With five minutes left before the bus arrives, Lincoln quickly rushes back home, and begs for his sisters' help. After a hefty amount of effort in getting Lincoln to stop talking, the sisters reveal that they want Lincoln to just be himself, since him being himself is what already makes him likable. Upon being turned back into his normal self, Lincoln barely manages to catch up to the bus. Upon boarding, Lincoln discovers that the new girl is by herself, and offers to sit next to her. By being himself, Lincoln successfully manages to make a good impression, as he and the new girl laugh as they head off to school.

Trivia

S3E02A Rabbit sisters

All 25 rabbit sisters present.

  • This episode focused on the original concept of the Louds being a family of rabbits, like Chris Savino intended the show to be. There are even 26 rabbits present (the one male rabbit, and the twenty-five female rabbits), like the original amount of siblings that were going to star in the show. Also, Lincoln's rabbit form is named Warren, which was going to be his original name.
    • Clyde is also a beaver, named Danny.
    • In an interview, Savino has stated that the Louds being a family of rabbits was just one of many abandoned concepts he decided on during the show's pre-production.
  • This is the first episode to show a flashback to a previous episode.
  • This is the first time since "One of the Boys" and "Pulp Friction" where Collin Dean (Lincoln's current voice actor) voices more than one character. In this case, it's Warren.
  • This is the first episode to air on Groundhog Day.
    • The only "line" she had was when she texted Warren "YES, YOU DO!" when explaining that Warren's attempt to impress the new girl wouldn't work without his sister's help.
      • Although, she said “New Girl?” with her rabbit sisters.
  • This is the first time Lincoln takes the bus to school when he usually walks to school or Lori drives him there.
  • The way Lincoln's sisters surround him in the beginning is almost the same way that they did in "Heavy Meddle", when they were excited because they thought Lincoln has a girlfriend.
    • However, Lucy and Luna's positions are switched.
  • Danny daydreaming about Betty hopping through the forest was a takeoff of Clyde imagining Lori running on the beach in "One of the Boys". He even pops the thought balloon in the same way.
  • Betty resembles Lori from "No Guts, No Glori", up to the point where she wears the same military garb, and the same demanding attitude.
  • The only rabbit sister that isn't white is Bella, as she's dark gray.
    • Humorously, she too has her eyes covered by her hair.
  • Here is what the sisters motivating Lincoln to be himself:
    • Lori: Kind
    • Leni: Fashionable
    • Luna: Rockin'
    • Luan: Funny
    • Lynn: Tough
    • Lucy: Deep
    • Lana and Lola: Friendly
    • Lisa: Smart
    • Lily: Yincoln Youd
  • The rabbit sister with the dark pink dress is the only one with three pairs of eyelashes, and no bags under her eyes.
  • The cowgirl rabbit is the only sister who has footwear (cowboy boots). All the other rabbits were seen bare-footed.
  • How the girls describe Lincoln at the end of the episode is how they act themselves.
  • Innuendo: The rabbits being grossed out by the lucky rabbit's foot seems to make sense, since it's a disembodied limb from their kind.

References

  • Hide nor Hare - The episode's original title is a pun on the phrase, "hide nor hair", which means there is no trace of something lost or missing.
  • Happy Days - Lincoln's/Warren's "cool" outfit resembles what Fonzie (the Fonz) occasionally wears.
  • Rabbit's Foot - One of the rabbit sisters is seen wearing a four leaf clover on her head, which is a reference to the idea that a rabbit's foot is considered a good luck charm.
    • Coincidentally, the rabbit's foot was also mentioned in the episode.
    • Milo Murphy's Law - It is also a reference to Sara Murphy, a character from the Disney animated program who also wears four leaf clovers, however, to protect herself from Murphy's law (caused by her younger brother, Milo Murphy).
  • Curious George - One of the rabbit sisters wears a hat that looks a bit like the Doorman's hat.
  • Peanuts - The way the new girl is unseen to the viewers is similar to the Little Red-Haired Girl, who was also a new girl.
S3E02A Warren reciting Shakesphare

I bet that quote he's reciting is pretty hare-raising!

  • William Shakespeare - The book Warren was reading to the new girl featured a rabbit version of the famous English playwright, and was given a punny name as well (Shakesphare, a portmanteau of "Shakespeare" and "hare").
  • Kim Possible - Luna (as well as Bippa) asked "What's the sitch?", which is also the catchphrase of the titular character from this cartoon.
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - Beth shares similar characteristics with Sleepy from the classic Walt Disney feature film.
  • The Smurfs - The angry rabbit sister may share similarities with Grouchy Smurf from the franchise of the same name.
  • The Outsiders - Lisa’s quote "Do you really think we wouldn’t notice that you dressed as a stereotypical Hollywood Representation of a 1950’s Greaser?" could refer to this 1983 film.
  • Matt Groening - The episode brings a reference to the cartoonist Matt Groening, which one of his first works was Life in Hell, whose protagonists are usually rabbits.

Errors

  • Brenda is voiced by Liliana Mumy. When she said "I hate her already," an animation error had her dressed like Beverly.
  • One of the characters voiced by Cristina Pucelli was credited as "Brenda" which had to have been a copy error. According to a tweet from Cristina Pucelli's Twitter account, her real name is Bippa who is the British sister.
  • Despite Lucy, Lana, Lola, and Lisa all going to the same school along with Lincoln, they didn't go on the school bus with him.
  • When Warren proclaims that he was about to run away from his meddling sisters, Barbara's dress was purple, but when she proclaims that chase music was needed, her dress became pink.
    • In this same scene, Bernadette's dress turned pink as well.
  • The new girl had orange fur, yet her tail was white.
  • In the Brazilian dub credits, Bethany's voice, Tais Feijo, was mistakenly written as "Tais Feij".
  • Continuity Errors:
    • In previous episodes, Lincoln walked from school to home. But in this episode, he takes the school bus.
    • In "Back in Black", the sisters tried changing Lucy to impress her crush, and Lincoln was the one who realized that Lucy needed to be herself to the boy, and yet, he's the one who needed to learn that lesson when trying to impress the new girl, and his sisters are the ones who teach it to him.

Running Gags

  • The sisters (both humans and rabbits) meddling with Lincoln/Warren's business.
  • Lincoln interrupting his sisters whenever they say his name.
  • The rabbits being grossed out by the lucky rabbit's foot.
  • Warren constantly flubbing up his attempts to impress the new girl.
