Mar 27, 2013

It's that time of year again. Decorated eggs and chocolate everything, especially Bunnies. Kidzworld rounds up the Top Five Cartoon Bunnies just in time for Easter.

#5. Trix Rabbit

The Trix Rabbit has starred in Trix commercials for more than thirty years and has been a big part in making Trix cereal one of General Mills’ best sellers. In every commercial the Trix Rabbit concocts some crazy scheme to get the Trix, but his plans are always discovered at the last minute, when the kids exclaim, “Silly Rabbit, Trix are for kids!” TVland named this saying #59 on their 100 greatest quotes and catchphrases, and it has been featured many times in film, TV, and even music.


#4. Roger Rabbit

In 1988 Roger Rabbit starred in the Disney movie “Who framed Roger Rabbit?” The movie had a budget of $70 million and went on to win four Oscars. In the movie, which blends live action and animation, Roger Rabbit is accused of murder, and he, along with the help of Private Eye Eddie Valiant, has to prove his innocence. Roger then appeared in several spin off comic books and cartoons, and even had a floppy dance move named after him in the early 1990’s.


#3. Rabbit

Rabbit is a good friend to Winnie the Pooh who tends to get overly excitable and all riled up fairly easily. He loves his garden, and does anything necessary to protect it, especially from Gopher and his tunneling. Rabbit can read and write a little, although not very well, and leaves Pooh notes, mostly about not eating his honey. He thinks he’s pretty smart and always dreams up plans that involve Pooh and Piglet, but they always go wrong in some way, like when he builds a fortress to protect his garden only to realize he didn’t build a door to get out!


#2. Thumper

Thumper is the scene stealing rabbit in Disney’s Bambi, who is known for thumping his hind foot. He ends up being Bambi’s best friend and teaches him to speak and ice skate on the slippery frozen pond. In the movie Thumper, Bambi, and Flower all listen to Friend Owl’s speech on Twitterpation, but soon Thumper gets distracted by a girl rabbit and disappears. At the end of the movie, Thumper shows up with his family, including a bunch of little rabbit babies who all thump their leg like their dad.


#1. Bugs Bunny

In 2002 TV Guide named Bugs Bunny the greatest cartoon character of all time. Bugs made his Looney Tunes debut in A Wild Hare in 1940 where he came out of his hole and asks Elmer Fudd, “What’s up, doc?”. By 1942, Bugs was the true star of Merrie Melodies and his rivalries with Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Donald Duck and many others have been Saturday morning cartoon favorites ever since. Bugs' other catchphrase is “Of course, you know, this means war!” and he even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
