Frigid Hare is a Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies short, released on October 7, 1949. It is directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese. The title can be seen as a simple play on "frigid air" and/or on the refrigerator brand called "Frigidaire".

While traveling to Miami Beach for an overdue vacation from Warner Brothers, Bugs Bunny mistakenly ends up at the South Pole, having yet again missed the left turn at Albuquerque. While there, he meets a young penguin being pursued by an Eskimo hunter. Bugs sends the hunter in the opposite direction and finds the penguin has grown attached to him. Wanting to get back to his vacation, Bugs distracts the penguin, then pushes him down a snowbank, only to see him land in the hunter's bag. Bugs starts to resume his journey but is overcome by his better nature ("Why that dirty, no-good... Well, you didn't think for a minute I was gonna let that bully... what I mean is, you wouldn't want I should desert the little guy, and... Oh, always somethin'! I'll never get to Miami!") and rescues the penguin. Although successful, Bugs grumbles that he only has four days of vacation left, only to learn from the penguin that, at the South Pole, the days are six months long. Figuring this means he can stretch his four-day vacation until July 1953, Bugs dons top hat and tails and accompanies the penguin on "a nice long formal vacation."
