Western Animation / Untalkative Bunny
is a Canadian/British co-produced animated series about a yellow rabbit and its life in the big city (closely based on Ottawa, Canada.) The series consists of small episodes (about 4–5 minutes long each), and are aired by Teletoon, as well as Disney in many parts of the world including the UK & France (excluding the US). The show is based off a short from the Nickelodeon
, and was cancelled in June 2005. The episodes usually deal with Bunny and the problems of a modern life in the big city, and often present surreal elements. The show is full of "modern life" elements, such as diets, vegetarianism, racism, and environmentalism.
The name of the show comes from the fact that Bunny, the main character, never says any word at all, expressing itself completely by facial expressions and other forms of body language. The true gender of Bunny is not completely defined, since it seems to portray both gender roles in different episodes.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: For starters, the titular bunny is yellow. Bunny's squirrel friend is orange, while its emu friend is blue. Also, Bunny's beaver roommate is purple.
- Ambiguous Gender: The titular bunny.
- Interspecies Romance: At one point, a fox falls in love with Bunny.
- No Name Given: All of the characters.
- Very Special Episode: "Concerned Marmot Surfers" and "Marmoteer Recruitment" are about the preservation of the endangered Vancouver Island Marmot. Unlike other examples of this trope, the two episodes have the same lighthearted tone as the rest of the series, with the only major difference being special end cards with information on how viewers can get involved with the issue of marmot preservation in real life.
- The Voiceless: The titular Untalkative Bunny. No points for guessing.
