Did you know that there are hundreds of different calls (a choreographed set of moves) a square dance caller can make and you ( and seven other people in your square) have to be ready for it? This is what makes Square Dancing one of the best social activities for keeping your body fit and your brain young and active.

The Warner Bros. cartoon staff had an unusual shared hobby in the late 1940's and early '50's...square dancing! Naturally, art imitated life in "Hillbilly Hare" (Robert McKimson, 1950). McKimson pitted Bugs Bunny against two Ozark hillbilly brothers who couldn't resist a rabbit in drag or an invitation to a square dance...and the rest is history. It ended up being one of musical composer Carl Stalling's most famous scores, one of the best Bugs Bunny cartoons of all time, and one of the flat-out funniest cartoons McKimson ever made. Here's the square dance sequence!
