The Rabbit is amongst his peers!

This is the LATEST I’ve ever put up a Bun Toon, but I have very good excuse!  I spent the morning with my daughter recording backing vocals for GLENN REID’S newest CD, and couldn’t get to the drawing desk on time.

But I Bun Toon in hurricanes, darkness and floods, so it arrives after all, if a few hours late.

Now that DC Comics has replaced their nearly-always-dead-Robin the Boy Wonder with Casper the Friendly Ghost, I thought it might be a nice opportunity to look back at a few other corporate, and institutional, mascots that have been replaced over the years.  It’s a fascinating history.

How many of you still remember these…

The stuff about Spuds MacKenzie is completely true, I looked it up.   She was really named HONEY TREE EVIL EYE.

Please serve your dog alcohol RESPONSIBLY.

Ty the Guy OUT!

  3. In the 90′s, the Quik bunny had his own comic line in Europe with three french style albums. They became cult classic thanks to the work of the talented spanish artist Ramón Casanyes.
    Here are the three covers
