While Disney cartoons all too often have a great sense of propriety to them, as opposed to the Warner shorts that are loud, unapologetic and even considered vulgar at times by todays reactionary and revisionist censors. Disney has always been viewed as more boring and benign by most kids and as more sly and underhanded by many adults.
Taking that into consideration "Funny Little Bunnies" is whimsical Disney animation at its best and its unapologetically funny. I almost hate myself for writing that first paragraph because people, especially after they study film take these cartoons too seriously. They're called "Silly Symphonies" for a reason. That's what they are silly all things we find offensive today were a norm in 1934. That doesn't make it right it just makes it a fact.
Anyway, if you shut your brain off for eight minutes you'll have a really great time. The story is simple and humorous without being too dumb and the animation- which I suspect was done on 3-strip technicolor is beautiful.
I dare you to enjoy it
