Storyline

Bunny, an elderly rabbit who uses a walker, is in her kitchen one night baking a cake. A photograph from her wedding day is on her wall. A pesky and persistent moth bangs about the kitchen. She shoos it outside, turns off the porch light, and returns to her baking. The moth finds its way back into the kitchen, she bats it with a wooden spoon, and it falls into the mix. She stirs it up, pours the batter into a pan, and pops it into the oven. But the moth isn't done: it has a different mission, turning the oven into a portal, and inviting Bunny on a voyage of reunion. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

a rabbit's habit
15 October 2017 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Chris Wedge's Oscar-winning "Bunny" is one of the most mystifying cartoons that I've ever seen. One might interpret it as a look at moving on with one's life. Seven minutes long and with no dialogue, it says more than lots of features say. The Tom Waits song during the credits sums up the cartoon's mood.

I understand that Wedge went on to direct "Ice Age". I never saw that one - and have no interest in it - so I'll remember him for this cartoon. It's one of the few cartoons that I've seen that I would call philosophical. It deserved its Oscar. I have to admit that I never would've guessed that Tom Waits would do a song for a cartoon, but it's worth remembering that cartoons don't have to be cute stuff for children. Worth seeing.
