The March Hare is a character from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland novels. In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, he hosts Alice, the Mad Hatter, and the Dormouse at a Mad Tea-Party. He also later appears during the Mad Hatter's testimony at Alice's trial. In Through the Looking-Glass, he has a cameo appearance as "Haigha," one of the white King's messengers at the fight between the Lion and the Unicorn.

A Muppet version of the March Hare appeared in episode 506 of The Muppet Show. The puppet was designed to resemble the original illustrations by John Tenniel. The March Hare appears several times throughout the episode, in the background or chorus, and is featured more prominently in the Mad Tea-Party scene at the end of the show.
