1. Bugs Bunny
Oh, how I loved this trickster when I was a little girl! And Bugs Bunny cartoons are still funnier than most of the stuff produced today, in my humble opinion.
2. The Rabbits of Watership Down
I read this novel when I was in university. It's one of the few books I've ever read that was so good, I literally could not put it down. I stayed up all night reading it. I was worried when the animated movie came out that it would cheapen and ruin my vision of Watership Down. But hurray! The charming movie is a genius work of art in its own right. Both the movie and the novel are wonderful.
But neither the book nor the movie is suitable for children. The story is a political analogy of oppression, violence and the search for freedom. Rabbits fight, bleed and die. It would scare young children.
3. The Killer Rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The very first time I saw this scene, I laughed so hard the tears ran down my face. And down my leg too, if you catch my drift. I can see this clip a million times and still find it hilarious EVERY. SINGLE. TIME!
My favourite immortal line: "What's he do? Nibble your bum?"
4. Jessica Rabbit from Who Killed Roger Rabbit?
Well, okay, she's not really a rabbit. But she's married to one and that counts. She took his last name, after all.
My favourite immortal line: "I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way."
