Comic Book / Bucky O'Hare and the Toad Wars

Go To
When your fur is bright green, you've already gone where no ordinary rabbit would dare.

In another dimension, another time and space,
a parallel universe has fallen on its face!
When out of the chaos, who else could it be?
Funky animal adventurers from S-P-A-C-E!

A very short-lived (5 issues) but well remembered comic book series created by Larry Hama, with help from Michael Golden and Neal Adams, about Captain Bucky O'Hare, a green humanoid hare who fights to protect his Universe from the scourge of the evil Toad Empire. Bucky is assisted by the intrepid crew of his space frigate, the Righteous Indignation, which is joined by a human Child Prodigy named Willy DuWitt, who entered his universe through a Portal Door that he accidentally helped create via simultaneous Photon Accelerator malfunction, and is trapped until the event can be recreated.

The original comic debuted in 1986, originally appearing as entries in the comics anthology series Echo of Futurepast, published by Continuity Comics — the first issue debuted to the public in Echo of Futurepast #1 in May 1984. In 1991, a 13-episode animated television series (and a tie-in line of action figures by Hasbro) debuted, running from September 1991 to January 1992. Konami would also release two videogames based on the animated series, one for the NES and one as an arcade game, in 1992. The cartoon would inspire a UK comics company to produce a second Bucky O'Hare comic series in 1992; it reprinted the original five issues, and then created 15 new issues that expanded on the comics story.


Thanks to Pragmatic Adaptation, Willy DuWitt can go freely back and forth between Earth and the other universe - renamed the "Aniverse" - at will in the cartoon.

It should not be confused with the similarly-themed Jazz Jackrabbit or Star Fox.
