Easter weekend is coming up! The other day, I hit up Purdy’s Chocolates to buy a single chocolate bunny. I told myself that I could have ONE chocolate bunny. So I bought a bag of chocolate eggs, a bunch of chocolate bunny pops and Topsy, the big chocolate bunny. Topsy was delicious. Thank you for asking.
My favourite fictional bunnies of all time:
Often dismissed as a cartoon bunny for kids, comedy fans know that Bugs is an American icon. Smart, witty and annoying, Bugs did it all first.
Anyone read this? It was about an evil vampire bunny who sucks the colour out of vegetables – and the bandit of pets who aim to stop him. I think of Bunnicula every time I see a turnip.
Okay, so not really a bunny. But thanks to sexy “bunnies” like Jessica Rabbit and the Playboy Bunnies, there will always to be rabbit ears and cotton tails at EVERY college Halloween party. Sex symbol bunnies serve to remind us that under the cute little faces, bunnies are awfully frisky.
White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland
There would have been no Wonderland if Alice hadn’t fallen down the rabbit hole. Just sayin’.
The Hare from Tortoise and the Hare
The Hare provides a lasting metaphor for any kind of competition where the underdog wins against the cocky, bastard frontrunner.
The Energizer Bunny
Yet another lasting metaphor – this time for things that keep going and going and going.
Thumper from Bambi
For being an endearing friend through the saddest movie ever. Seriously, who didn’t cry through Bambi?
Hester from His Dark Materials trilogy
Hester doesn’t play a big role in the story but he is a daemon. And daemons are possibly the coolest part of the His Dark Materials trilogy. It’s an animal, who happens to be your soul, who happens to follow you around or sit on your shoulder.
Who are your favourite bunnies?
