Run Rabbit Run by Supreme Magic Company(c. 1971,1982) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
In 1939 the Englishman Harry Leat invented what became one of the best and most enduring children’s effect of all time: Run Rabbit Run. Like the Die Box, with which it bears some obvious similarities, it has inspired craftsmen and dealers ever since.
This is the version of Run Rabbit Run I performed in my youth. It might not be as impressive as Jack Hughes’ Run Bonzo Run or the beautiful Run Wolf Run, but for me it is very practical for kids parties. It is about half the size of the bigger versions, and can easily be held and managed with one hand. This gives it plenty of flexibility. The larger size is certainly important for bigger venues, but for normal kids parties you don’t need any more than this.
It is true that there are more story opportunities with Run Wolf Run, but I performed this version 100’s of times and never found the need for more story – the kids were already screaming way too loud as it was!
Still the best kids effect by a mile. If you can’t find one of these early Supreme versions, don’t get one of the cheap copies, get Run Wolf Run from Chance Wolf.
Effect: A terrific kids’ trick, now precision-made in metal and finished in many colors! The greatest shouting trick you have ever seen. Good for a million laughs! An excellent trick, great fun for any audience!
In the Supreme model of this effect, unobtainable elsewhere, you have two or three alternative climaxes possible. He can appear from a hat, he can appear popping up and down from a comic paper or book on “How to look after your rabbit”. He can appear on your assistant’s back or on your own back; furthermore, the rabbit matches-in with that which we supply with “Baffling Bunnies”. A perfect follow-up trick.
Perform Baffling Bunnies and then put that naughty little rabbit who is always playing his tricks on you into his rabbit hutch. But he still gets up to his mystifying capers. Baffling Bunnies and Run Rabbit Run together play for up to fifteen to twenty minutes of really solid, fun_packed entertainment.
Supreme ‘Run Rabbit Run’ is a truly great effect and one that you will thank us for re-releasing. Something which every kids’ entertainer must have!
The merry trickster exhibits a metal frame constructed with two doors in the front and two in the back. These doors are separated by section decorated like a red brick wall. He places a cut-out of a rabbit in one side and as he is talking the audience actually see the rabbit sneak across to the other side! And the kids immediately tell you so! You ignore the screams and open the other doors to prove that he has “vanished”. As you open the doors at the other end the audience sees the rabbit sneak back again!
More screams and howls of “I see it! There he is!!” This is continued until the audience is in stitches! ACTUALLY/!! The rabbit even PEEKS OUT FROM AROUND THE SIDE OF THE DOOR AS YOU INSIST HE ISN’T THERE! This brings down the house! Finally all the doors are opened and he HAS vanished and is found inside the magician’s hat!
Well and durably made, you’ll get your money’s worth out of this the first show. An excellent trick and great fun for any audience.
The improved construction of the apparatus we offer, together with the fact that what you are purchasing is an effect from the rightful owners, plus the additional climaxes which are possible with the Supreme authentic model of this effect, all add up together to make this one of the best and most durable buys which you ever made.
Supreme ‘Run Rabbit Run’ is not to be confused with the cheap inferior versions which are being offered elsewhere.
The working is as smooth silk and the prop supplied is built to give a lifetime’s service.
