Overview

Drawn to Bunnies is a collection of cartoons about rabbits and their day-to-day life. It might be described as the "public life of the rabbit". Rabbits are a lot more organized and lead much richer lives than one might think. Even those of you familiar with rabbits will be surprised to learn about such things as one- and two-piece bunnysuits, the invention of the self-cleaning rabbit, and the teamwork needed for rabbit travel.

Sundae and her bunnyservant hope that you enjoy these images.

Chapter One

Mom has been sketching us rabbits for a long time now. I think it started with her sister's rabbit, Tools, back in highschool. When asked why she draws rabbits instead of people, she replies, "they're more fun because they're cuter."

Who am I to argue?

Of course, we don't spend all our time trying to be cute; that's just the way we are. We have lots of things to give our attention to, from the correct fit and maintenance of our bunny suits (although I guess that might fall under the "cute" heading) to earning a living and perfecting our golf game. Well, some bunnies prefer horseback riding, but that's another story.

So let's start this celebration of bunniness!

Now, the first thing to consider when you decide to be a bunny is the selection of your bunny-suit. These come in one- and two-piece styles. Gapping in the two-piece styles can be eliminated with the proper use of a cummerbunned. For those bunnies who prefer a looser fit, long hair can cover many tailoring faults-as my friend Satin says, who knows what angoras are wearing under all that fur?

Bunsuits may be purchased in-store or online. A variety of colours and patterns are available.

Accessories (whiskers, tails, claws) are usually purchased through a catalog but must be installed by a certified technician. Loose parts can be a source of great embarrassment.

Proper care of the bunsuit is essential. Fortunately for us modern buns, we now have a self-cleaning program. Earlier buns (pre-1950s) were much more labor intensive. Their hasendieners (bunny-slaves) had to purchase the cleaning spray, spread newspapers, don rubber gloves, and open all the windows!

After cleaning, buns had to be dried. Line-drying was the preferred (?) method, as drying machines produced too much fluffiness.

It's also important to maintain fitness of the inner bun. Buns with bad health habits and diets can develop all sorts of problems.

Fortunately, a program of exercise and proper diet can help most buns.

Leading to a happy, fit, and well-maintained bunny!

Bunnies, like anyone else, have to earn a living. There are a variety of careers open to buns.

Many of these fields require teamwork.

Some buns even join the military-lots of teamwork required there!

Although it gets a little strange when buns decide to help in the HUMAN military.....

Still, bunnies have lots of ways of earning a living. But, like humans, they don't spend all their time working. Some buns use their spare time for education and personal improvement.

Not all bunnies are good students.

Some bunnies spend their leisure time in less ambitious pursuits - like watching tv.

Although my friend ZigZag pointed out that the bunny in the picture could easily be blaming whoever ate the buttons off of the remote....

Buns, of course, have to have somebunny TO watch. We have many famous television personalities.

For those buns who prefer to be more active, there is first the problem of getting where they want to go.

Some buns simply walk. (hop?)

Others rely on public transportation.

Not always with satisfying results.

Some bunnies team up to operate motor vehicles.

Other bunnies opt to rely on human transportation.

Although this can have its own problems. (Once again the worlds of humans and bunnies collide.)

Once at their destination, buns like many of the same activities as humans do. Cookouts, for example.

And dancing.

Some buns like riskier activities, such as rafting.

(This is not always as risky for the rafters as for other bunnies.)

And bubble-gum-blowing.

Quieter games, such as golf, are popular too.

Some summer options include snorkeling and relaxing on the beach.

With the change of seasons, other sports become more appropriate.

The cooler weather sends somebunnies inside.

Winter has its own hazards.

Including family gatherings....

Somebuns use inclement weather as an excuse to go to the movies. Film heros like Luke Skyhopper are always a good draw.

Other buns hang out with friends at their local roadhouse.

More athletic buns take advantage of the winter weather.

Younger buns often prefer snowboarding.

There are actually many facilities available for skibunnies. Of course, when you don't wear winter coats, you have to find alternative ways to attach your lift ticket.

The ski lift itself is generally a pleasant experience.

Many bunnies take the sensible route and begin with ski lessons.

Others just "wing it" and hope for the best.

You can usually tell which buns are which.

No matter what activities buns choose, they all enjoy relaxing at the end of the day.
