Coincidentally, I've just watched the live action version too.

I've seen this scenario turn out very differently in real life.

Cute, but I was hoping, nay, expecting, that the gnome in the background would come to life and produce some gnomery. Shegnomigans, if you will.

When I first read "cat meets bunny", I immediately flashed backed to when we lived in a neighborhood way out in the country, and those warm summer nights when the local cats would stalk the back yards in search of bunny nests and the horrific noises made by the little baby bunnies as the cats tore into them.

This was much cuter than that memory, thank god.

Are you sure those were baby bunnies that the cats were killing, thorzdad? In your heart, you know otherwise.

I like "Simon's Cat" better when he behaves like a real cat and not just another animated character doing wacky things. This one is just a vanilla cute cartoon.

Like what? Waking Simon with a baseball bat to the head?

Yes, tomswift, I'm, sadly, very very sure.

My point exactly -- that particular cartoon is almost PERFECT up until the moment the cat whips out the baseball bat. But at least that's only one gag in that cartoon. Sometimes the whole cartoon is that way, like this one with the bunny.

Thanks, Eas' Bunny! Bock bock!

I'm pleased to see they took the time to render the cat's butt-hole.

Ah Easter, when Jesus takes on rabbit form to say "yo, have some chocolate for some reason" not unlike Count Dracula during baseball season.

Real cats show no mercy. Happy Easter.

I'll admit I was hoping for some interspecies grooming.

WalkingAround : Real cats show no mercy. Happy Easter.

Came here to say this. Ever seen a "meeting" between a real cat and a real rabbit? Suffice it to say, the cat has a good time...

Me too. I've seen a cat kill and disembowel a bunny. And, more satisfyingly, I've seen a bunny kick the shit out of a cat. Ah, nature. Red in tooth and kittyface.

Count me in as one of the people having unpleasant flashbacks when I saw the title of this video. A few years back, I was walking on the Erie Canal towpath when a wild rabbit shot out of the bushes. A moment later, a black cat materialized, grabbed the rabbit's neck, and dragged it back into the bushes--all in the space of a couple of seconds, and silently to boot. One of those "yeah, those cute little kitties are predators, aren't they?" experiences.

Of course if it had been General Woundwort it would have been very different...

The cats may win the individual battle, but rabbits always win as a species.

A rabbit came into our yard once when I was a kid. It was about the size of one of those smartcars. One of my cats looked on in fascination, two of them ran and hid. As for the cat that had drawn our attention to the rabbit in the first place, he tugged at my mother's hem, gestured towards the rabbit, and plaintively urged her to take meaningful action. As I recall, my mother distracted the rabbit with some lettuce and, while it was busy eating, explained to it in a nice way why it's not a good idea to visit yards with cats in them. The rabbit thanked my mother and went home.

True story.
