Lola Bunny is tired of working for Giovanni Jones at the Acme's department store perfume counter. Witch Lezah makes a cameo as Lola sings about her dream of creating her own perfume. She gets fired and takes a ride home in Bugs Bunny's taxi. She screams when she sees a mouse, even though it's her landlord Speedy Gonzales. He brought her a rare flower from Mexico, one which is being watched by General Foghorn Leghorn, his intern Pete Puma, and spy Cecil Turtle. Foghorn sends agent Elmer Fudd to watch the flower, though Lola uses it to create her perfume, which has a side effect of invisibility. Cecil sends goons to get it, but Lola backs out the window and falls to Bugs' taxi below. On the way down, the perfume makes the wall invisible exposing, in successive apartments, the Stacey's manager and his shoe customer (from Hare Conditioned), the little man from the draft board (from Draftee Daffy), and Red Ryder and his horse. Foghorn puts out a reward for Bugs and Lola, and Yosemite Sam, who was preparing to rob a bank, learns of it and apprehends them. They escape and slip down a storm drain. They emerge through a manhole in front of Porky Pig, but Giovanni grabs the perfume. Lola runs after him and gets abducted by Cecil in a van. Bugs jumps in Daffy Duck's taxi and follows them. They free Lola and run through Central Park. Daffy envies the ducks there and decides to retire. Sam follows Bugs and Lola to the airport where she spots Giovanni, and they all board the plane, as does Cecil. Bugs retrieves the perfume and makes a parachute from clothes in passengers' checked baggage, and he and Lola land in the ocean. The Goofy Gophers pick them up in their yacht, try the perfume, and discover its invisibility property. They arrive in Paris, and Bugs and Lola spray themselves, but when it rains they find themselves caught between Fudd and Cecil. Bugs tries to throw the bottle into the river but Sam catches it. They all dogpile on Sam but are suddenly teleported to Mars, and Marvin the Martian grabs the bottle. Cecil's goons unzip their goon costumes, revealing they are Instant Martians. Marvin extracts the invisibility part of the potion from the perfume part but ends up with two identical bottles. Bugs and Lola play switcheroo and end up with both of them. They are chased to the Transporter Depot, but everyone crams into one pod, overloading the system and causing them all to switch heads, bodies, and other parts. They continue to play body part swap for a while and even Screwball Daffy (from Duck Amuck) walks across the scene, but they eventually end up restored. Marvin grabs the bottle and sprays the Earth, with perfume. Everyone else boards the Martian Maggot, but before they blast off Bugs tosses Marvin the Alludium Q36 explosive space modulator which blows up Mars, leaving Marvin hanging from a root. The Maggot returns the rest safely to Earth. One year later, perfume mogul Pepe le Pew introduces his newest scent, Lola, and Bugs reveals that he still has the invisibility potion. Daffy is still at the zoo a year later and scares a kid when he asks for a corn dog. The kid runs off scared that ducks talk. Porky does his closing as usual. Daffy with his corn dog, says, "Interesting." Porky then wacks Daffy on the head with a frying pan.
You can hear the 1941-46 closing for the Looney Tunes series in the ending sequence with Porky and Daffy.
