The Rabbit Show minigame is found in Professor Layton's trunk alongside the other minigames. The object of the game is to teach a rabbit (named by the player) tricks in order to act out a play to impress the ringmaster.
There are 28 different actions for the rabbit to perform. While some are available from the start, others have to be discovered and then taught to the rabbit. More actions are discovered after rehearsing the ringmaster's scripts.
