I was trying think who the most famous rabbit was in the world. When I ask that, what rabbit comes to your mind first?
To be honest, the first one that came to my mind was Rabbit, from Winnie the Pooh. After that, I thought of Peter Rabbit and all his troubles in Mr McGregors garden.
Searching the web straightway produces a very comprehensive list.
Each of these rabbits seems to bring back memories from my childhood.
How about you?
Did we miss any?
#1 Bugs Bunny..."what up doc?" Good old Bugs and Elmer Fudd
#2 Br're Rabbit...I wonder if you have to be over 50 to even know who this is? Thats a sad state of affairs if this is so. Look him up...and then read it to a child you love.
#3 Peter Rabbit...thank you Beatrix Potter
#4 Velveteen Rabbit..while your at the library getting The Brier Patch and Tar Babies for the antics of Br're Rabbit, pick up this story for the kids too...and for yourself!
#5 Easter Bunny...not every kid should get a real live Easter Bunny...but they all should get chocolate!!
#6 Harvey...once again dating myself quite a bit. Jimmy Stewart is and always will be a dream boat. Go rent the movie!! Its great!! Everyone should meet the 6 ft invisible rabbit!!
#7 Trix the Rabbit....Trix are for kids...and sugar highs.
#8 Roger Rabbit...naughty rabbit
#9 The Energizer Bunny...pink, cool and pounding the skin!
#10 Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh...Hundred Acre Wood wouldnt be the same without him.
#11 Thumper...wasnt he Bambi's best friend? Making the most of large feet!!
#12 The Hare..from The Tortoise and the Hare...personally I prefer tortoises...but bunnies are the next best. We love the Hare even in his foible.
#13 The White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland...what time is it again? Who's late for a very important date?
#14 Little Bunny Foo Foo...who remembers this song...bopping mice on the head? Another naughty rabbit I'd say....poor field mice.
Anybody want to round out the list...who did I miss?
