Western Animation: Rekkit Rabbit
is a French Saturday Morning cartoon from the same stable of creators that came up with Totally Spies!
, Team Galaxy
and Monster Buster Club
Rekkit Rabbit is about Jay Shmufton, your typical 12-year-old who lives in the suburbs with his mom and stepdad. In the first episode of the series Jay accidentally summons a giant 10-foot tall magic rabbit called Rekkit, who soon became his best friend
. Rekkit Rabbit ran away from his job as a magician's assistant in Chakabrak, and crashed into Jay's world and life. Rekkit is supernatural and magical, and can basically do anything, except he's not very adept at sorcery and this usually causes problems.
Alongside his friends SK, Wally and Bean
, the kids usually run amok.
It airs on Disney XD
Rekkit Rabbit provides examples of the following tropes:
- All Trolls Are Different: They look like giant pickles with beards, wearing Jamaican hatwear and ... they're all taxidrivers.

- Big Eater: Unfortunately Rekkit is often prone to "sleep-eating", where he literally sleep walks through town inhaling everything in sight.
- Bigger on the Inside: Rekkit's internal anatomy is ginormous, its easy to get lost inside him if accidentally swallowed up as Jay discovers. There some all-round bizarre things going on inside of his big supernatural friend.

- Fantastic Racism: Rabbits on Chakabrak aren't allowed to perform magic by themselves.
