YMMV / Bunny Maloney

Go To

  • Base-Breaking Character:
    • Bunny himself. Some find him to be very annoying, but others sympathize with him due to his rocky relationship with Candy.
    • Charlotte is also divisive. Many are turned off by her air-headedness and promiscuity, but there are others who find her endearing for her kindness.
  • Ear Worm:
    • The indecipherable theme song can definitely be this.
    • Watched this show? Then good luck getting any of the background music out of your head.

    • There's also the main trio having their own honorably catchy theme songs:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: This was likely the first time a guy was nicknamed as "Big G". The second was Takeshi Gouda/Gian (in the Doraemon English dub, that is).
  • Jerkass Woobie: Bunny, due to being the lesser jerk of the two rabbits. His relationship with Candy is hardly as lovely as the show makes it out to be. The pressure of appeasing Candy means he's frequently reduced to recoiling in fear whenever he fails to live up to her demands. Needless to say, most can't help but feel bad for what he has to go through.
  • The Scrappy: Candy is deemed downright unlikeable by many. She's self-centered, controlling, temperamental, and at her worst, abusive. Most other characters live in fear of her wrath, especially Bunny, who gets the brunt of it. However, the show firmly believes Women Are Wiser and plays her personality for laughs. Suffice to say, many prefer Bunny being paired with literally anyone else.

  • Misaimed Marketing: The exact demographic of the show is rather vague at first glance (although it seems to be for pre-teens). However, a presentation covering the show reveals that Bunny Maloney was intended to be an "'adult-escent’ comedy, action-adventure", pointedly comparing it to American adult sitcoms. Despite this fact, the English dub aired in America on the child-oriented Kabillion for a time. Years later, it would later be taken down—apparently, the channel realized that the show was not as kid-friendly as it thought.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: It's a show targeted for children, with plenty of radar-dodging moments (mostly being sexual jokes). The fact that the pilot was intended for an older audience doesn't help.
