Rabbits: They don't come any cuter and cuddlier than the Easter Bunny (with Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail as a close second). But not all bunnies are adorable. Some are bad. Very, very bad.

The World's Most Notorious Rabbits

Trix Rabbit

Just what everybody needs -- a rabbit that doesn't respect boundaries with a severe cereal addiction. The Trix rabbit began terrorizing children in commercials -- trying to steal their Trix cereal --back in 1954. Although he's been told time and time again that "Trix [were] for kids," he continued to attempt to "score" a quick breakfast fix for years.

Little Bunny Foo Foo

This is a bad combo:Bunnies with mallets who have a vendetta against field mice. That's the story of Little Bunny Foo.

Here's the gist of it:
Little bunny Foo Foo
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bopping them on the head

Eventually a Good Fairy shows up and tries to set B.F.F. straight. No luck, that bunny is bad to the bone.

The March Hare

"Mad as a March hare" was a common phrase when LewisCarroll's wrote Alice in Wonderland. The March Hare in Carroll's classic story does not disappoint. As one of the guests at the perpetual tea party hosted by the equally Mad Hatter he's a wreck; pouring tea all over the place, breaking sh*t and basically acting like a jerk.

The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog

In the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail the character Tim the Enchanter,(played by John Cleese) describes a monster with "nasty, big, pointy teeth" and "a vicious streak a mile wide!" to King Arthur (played by Graham Chapman) and his team of soldiers. It turns out the "monster" is a furry white rabbit -- who proceeds to decapitate one of the men. Run away!! Run away!!

Fierce Bad Rabbit

Beatrix Potter loved writing about bunnies. Her most famous characters are Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. One rabbit that's not so well known is the reviled Fierce Bad Rabbit.

How bad is he> Here's his intro in The Story of A Fierce Bad Rabbit:

This is a fierce bad Rabbit; look at his savage whiskers, and his claws, and his turned-up tail.

OK. We get it. He's bad.

In the endFierce Bad Rabbit is such a rotton rabbit -- mostly because of his bad manners -- that a hunter shoots off his tail and whiskers. That'll teach him to say his "please" and "thank yous!"

Dust Bunnies

What a cute whimsical name for a bunch of filth that's collected under the bed, in corners and in every room of my house. Dust bunnies consist ofhair, lint, dead skin, spider webs, dust, and I dare say a renegade Cheerio or two.Dust bunnies probably go their name because they can easily become airborne and seem as if they are hopping. Just like real bunnies. But make no mistake dust bunnies DO NOT make good pets even though, ironically, they are often made up of pet hair.

Rabbits in Horror Movies

Night of the Lepus, also known as Rabbits, was a 1972 horror film that asked the question: What if the world was overrun by killer rabbits?

(WARNING: Right after the giant rabbits attack by :40 it gets a bit gruesome. This flick used a TON of ketchup.)
