Sex & Nudity

  • There is underlying misogyny in the film, seen especially in the scene when General Woundwort offers any doe that Bigwig fancies as compensation for his work as a captain at Efrafa.
  • During a meeting between two brother rabbits and the chief rabbit, the chief mentions that they're in the middle of May, which is mating season.
  • Infriquent mild references to the need of does (female rabbits) to sustain the warren.

Violence & Gore

  • A rabbit threatens to kill another rabbit. He bites a tuft of fur off of said rabbit but is jumped on before he can do anything else. No blood is shown
  • There is some strong violence in this film. It solely involves animals (predominantly rabbits), but it can still get pretty disturbing.
  • In the epilogue, one of the main heroes, very old years after the story's main action, dies peacefully at the gentle suggestion of the rabbit personification of Death who also assures him that his warren will prosper in safety without him.

Profanity

  • Rabbits call each other mild names. Two uses of "Damn" one use of the phrase "Piss Off" opposite of ''F..k Off'' one use of the phrase ''Blast You'' opposite of ''F..k you'' and Two uses of ''Frisks'' opposite of ''F..k''

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A rabbit finds a smoldering cigarette near a fence post, which he seems to fear will start a forest fire.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • For a movie that was rated PG, it has an unbelievable amount of gore and blood. (Comment: it was rated before PG-13 came into existence in 1984, and apparently wasn't strong enough for an R, the next choice up.)
  • In England this film was given a U rating equivalent to the MPAA's G rating despite the dark elements, blood, intense violence and scary themes.
  • Suggested BBFC Rating(s): PG for intense threat or 12A/12 for intense threat, moderate blood and obscured mild bad language
  • Suggested MPAA Rating: PG-13 for violence involving disturbing and bloody scenes scary images and brief momentary language.
  • Suggested ACB Rating: M for moderate violence and scary images
  • Several scenes contain potentially nightmarish images that may be too strong for young viewers.
  • The most frightening scene shows rabbits being gassed underground, their heads then form an abstract ghostly head of a rabbit.
  • In the climatic sequence, a rabbit is caught by a cat who is able to kill him, but the cat's human guardian orders her to back off before she does any harm.
  • The music and general mood of the film is rather bleak, surreal, and intense.
  • Even if this movie isn't as gruesome as other animated movies - such as Felidae - the strong violence used in the movie is still disturbing and scary.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A rabbit is attacked and killed by a hawk offscreen. A rabbit is nearly choked to death in a snare, he coughs out blood. Very violent. It appears he is dead, however, we soon learn this is not true. A rabbit is found beaten, he is covered in scars. Another rabbit has his ears torn as a punishment. For the rest of the film, his ears are disfigured. A rabbit is shot in the leg, but he survives. There is a bloody bullet hole in the leg that was shot. The bullet is removed from the wound, and the rabbit requires time to heal. For the rest of the film there is a scar where he was shot. Two rabbits are hit by a train.
  • In the final battle, which is likely the goriest scene in the movie, a rabbit has his throat torn out by another rabbit onscreen. We then see his body, he has a large hole in his neck, and blood is everywhere. Two rabbits then fight nearly to the death, causing both of them to bleed. They bite each other in a way that almost looks cannibalistic. Next, a dog is unleashed upon the rabbits, he bites and tears up many of them. One is even shown being thrown high into the air by the dog, and falling back down, covered in blood. Finally, it is implied that a rabbit is killed offscreen by the dog, no blood or violence but still very frightening.
