Although slightly annoying and in all honesty pretty unhip, we just had to include him (her? …does anyone know if Rabbit is a guy or a girl?) The reason we had to make sure Rabbit was here was because of his association with Winnie the Pooh, Roo & Tiger. With friends like those (okay…and Piglet, Eeyore & Kanga) you can’t be all that bad.
9.) Energizer Bunny
There’s not too much to say about this pink guy expect that he has an ability that all of us wish we had…he keeps going and going and going. More of a fixture in the 90s, we think he should be brought back into Energizer’s ad campaigns.
8.) Babs & Buster Bunny
There was nothing better than coming home from school, flipping on the tube and flopping down for a little Tiny Toon Adventures with Babs & Buster. Although they share the surname with Bugs they are not his offspring…nor are they related to each other. Weird sort of relationships those toons have.
7.) Velveteen Rabbit
The ups and downs of Margery Williams’ The Velveteen Rabbit have us crying and laughing and crying and laughing again. If your mother did not read this book to you as a child you had a bad mother….and you can tell her we said so.
6.) Peter Rabbit
Beatrix Potter’s wonderfully mischievous rabbit who goes against his mother’s wishes and trespasses in to Mr. McGregor’s garden and eats his veggies until he becomes ill. If he taught us anything it’s listen to your mother otherwise you’ll get camomile tea while your sisters get bread, milk and blackberries for supper.
5.) Trix Rabbit
The always hopped up hyper rabbit who never gets what he wants, Trix Cereal. It’s a bit strange that he’s named the same as the one thing he can never seem to get. He’s a bit zaney and a bit kooky but for the joy he brings to our breakfast bowls we salute him.
4.) Frank the Bunny
As the influence in Donnie’s ear, Frank scares the crap out of us. This is not a rabbit I would want to run into but he makes his way up the list because…well….we don’t want to know what will happen to us if we don’t put him here.
The ever so cheery companion to Bambi, he recites the oft appropriate “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.” He’s a great pal and cutie pie of a cottontail.
2.) Roger Rabbit
No matter how badly he screws up or gets in the way of P.I. Eddie Valiant you really can’t get down on him too much. I mean, anyone with a wife as hot as Jessica is aces in our book.
1.) Bugs Bunny
No question hands down the best wabbit ever. Since 1940 he has been making us laugh and evading the ever so daft Elmer Fudd. How can we forget his amazing big screen performance in Space Jams, he exemplifies all that is cool. He’ll forever have children reciting “What’s up doc?”
