Top famous bunnies of all time.
Based on no criteria whatsoever except my personal preference while bored and internetting, here are the top bunnies of (relatively) modern pop-culture. Nominate your favorite in the comments section if I left him or her out.
1. The killer swamp rabbit that attacked Jimmy Carter. Whether this wet, fuzzy little guy had some kind of vendetta against our 39th president, or just wanted a place to rest his tired legs after swimming across an entire lake, he won the hearts of reporters and satirists nationwide. He contributed to Carter’s downfall in public opinion, indirectly helping Ronald Regan win the presidency, ending the cold war, and changing the future of the entire world. Kudos, swamp bunny. I hope Jimmy’s oar didn’t hit you too hard. Aw, shucks, he probably missed you entirely.
Here’s a closer view of the culprit:
2. Babs and Buster Bunny (no relation). I always found Bugs Bunny just slightly annoying. I’m not sure what it was about him. Babs and Buster made a pretty good team, though. I think they saved the whole bunny image for Warner Brothers. Their team work and witty banter was inspiring. I think if Bugs had had a nice girl bunny around more often, he might not have gotten into so much trouble. On the other hand, Bugs wore women’s clothing really, really often…
3. The Trix bunny. Those things are for kids, dude. But does that keep you from trying? No way! Now there is a guy who knows persistence. I have so much respect for the Trix bunny.
4. And while we’re on commercials, the Cadbury Bunny is of course on the list. I choose him in favor of the Easter Bunny, because a) the Easter Bunny has caused more harm than good for rabbits, let’s be honest, and b) I wanted another excuse to embed a commercial. I love commercials. Plus it gives me a really good excuse to link this post on the other blog I contribute to.
5. The Rabbit of Caerbannog. This guy was so badass he took out three armored, well-armed Knights of the Round Table, and chomped out a place for himself in the world of British comedy in-jokes that has lasted three decades.
6. The Energizer Bunny. SERIOUSLY. Is he STILL going?!!? Even after hundreds – thousands – of younger, more meaningful ad campaigns have fallen before him? YES. And may he continue to go, for as long as batteries remain a relevant technology and Energizer’s ad people fail to come up with a better idea.
I salute you, Energizer Bunny. May the Force be with you.
I know there’s a lot more famous bunnies out there that deserve mentioning, but I forgot them, so please comment with your favorites and I’ll add them to the list. I’m sure it can keep going. And going…
