The cartoon star of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, this energetic cartoon rabbit was married to the voluptuous Jessica Rabbit. He helped the live action gumshoe character solve the mystery of who framed him.
While Peter Rabbit began his rise in popularity in literature written by Beatrix Potter, the illustrations in his story were very cartoony. His story has been animated several times over the years. He may be one of the most memorable rabbits in children's literature, teaching children the benefits of listening to their mothers and not getting into trouble.
Disney has created many cartoon rabbits onscreen like Thumper in Bambi, the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, Br'er Rabbit in Song of the South and Rabbit in Winnie the Pooh. Many have become a part of every child's upbringing as they enjoy these classic animated movies.
Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh is also very well known for his sardonic outlook when it comes to Winnie. He knows that his time will be wasted, his honey will be eaten and while he tries to make the best of it, he accepts that whenever Winnie the Pooh comes around, he'll have to be nice.
While some may argue that Wallace and Gromit are claymation rather than famous cartoon rabbits, they still use a cartoon style. In The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, the duo are up against a foe that turns out to be closer to home than they thought. The innocent little rabbits involved are cute and the movie is extremely funny.
In the animated children's series, Arthur, the Bionic Bunny is the rabbit superhero that Arthur watches on TV. Similar to Superman, Bionic Bunny has a weakness...salt. Arthur's best friend, Buster, is also a rabbit.
In the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons, there was a cartoon character called Ricochet Rabbit. He was the sheriff in a place called Hoop n' Holler. His deputy was Droop-a-Long Coyote. The sheriff was known for his catch phrase of "bing, bing, BING! Ricochet Rabbit!" before he'd take off with amazing speed.
Ricochet Rabbit had amazing bullets in his gun that would stop in midair and hover over the bad guy, open up and reveal a huge mallet to hit the bad guy with or it would stop and draw a target on the bad guy's nose for punching.
