Surprise Appearances by Bunnies in Geek TV

This is my bunny.
This is my bunny.

So I live with my sister, and we have a pet rabbit. Before my sister adopted the bunny and brought him to San Francisco, I never thought much about rabbits — but now I’m mildly obsessed. One of the highlights of any day (for the bunny-obsessed part of me, anyway) is reading the words of wisdom from Bunny Buddhism in my Twitter feed. I look for bunny jewelry and clothes. And anytime a rabbit appears in one of my favorite shows, I get a little giddy. Here are some of my favorite surprise bunny appearances so far:

Bluebell (Sherlock)

Bluebell is one of the best guest stars on Sherlock, if you count animal characters. Which I always do. At Baskerville, a secretive Ministry of Defence research base, researchers have created a luminous rabbit by implanting the fluorescent jellyfish gene. The result is Bluebell, the glow-in-the-dark bunny. If you’re doubting how special this rabbit is, just do a Google search and enjoy the fan fiction, memes, fan art, and T-shirts that little Bluebell has spawned.

The Rabbit in “Day of the Doctor” (Doctor Who)

In the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, the 10th Doctor goes head to head with a rabbit, thinking the little guy is a monstrous alien taking the form of a bunny. It only takes a few seconds for the Doctor to realize the bunny is not a threat but “basically just a rabbit, aren’t you?”

The White Rabbit (Star Trek: The Original Series)

We all know the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland: He’s late, he’s super upset about it, and he’s wearing a lot of clothes. But he also makes a creative appearance in the Star Trek: TOS episode “Shore Leave.” It involves a planet that scans visitors’ thoughts and conjures up illusions for them — hence McCoy’s illusion of a giant rabbit and Alice running around on the planet’s surface. This White Rabbit may not be the cutest, but he gets points for being a bizarre and funny surprise in Star Trek.
