Ok, so I want you to think about this for a minute–because I have. Why are there so many famous car­toon rab­bits? It might seem, for a sec­ond, that a car­toon rab­bit is vir­tu­ally guar­an­teed to become famous or launch the career of its cre­ator. Not con­vinced? It’s not hard to come up with a list of famous bun­nies. Please, let me list a few, if I may. Bugs Bunny. Roger Rab­bit. Flopsy Bunny.  Arguably, the White Rab­bit (from Alice in Won­der­land). Thumper. The Trix Rab­bit. Binky from Life in Hell. Max from the Sam and Max video games. Mr. Bun, Susie’s rab­bit doll in Calvin & Hobbes. We all know it was the rab­bit and not Calvin or Hobbes that made Bill Wat­ter­son famous. Go with me on this.

I will be explor­ing a few car­toon rab­bits that have, against all odds, failed to become famous or make any­one else famous. To Be Continued.
