The Elusive Rabbits or Hippity-Hop Rabbits was invented by The Great Norman (Norman Hazeldene) c. 1947.
This cute set from Vienna Magic are very similar in design and method to the stunning ones created by the highly talented German craftsman Horst Dieter Christ c. 1977. They are a great size for close-up and work very smoothly.
Effect: A black rabbit and a white rabbit are each covered with a tube and are to switch places at the magician’s command. And the rabbits do actually change places several times. In the course of this funny routine, which is interspersed with jokes, the audience notices that the rabbits and their tubes are turned around each time, so everyone thinks the other side of the white rabbit must be black, and the other side of the black rabbit white.
After hesitating for a while, the magician agrees to turn the rabbits around – what a surprise, the reverse sides of the rabbits are yellow and blue respectively. A real sensation with great entertainment value.
