So, I saw this a while ago and I laughed, I mean I can see Peanut being a little vampire. I even joked about his two big teeth in the front being sharp teeth. So it wasn’t a surprise that someone had already done it.
Then the other day a student walked in reading Bunnicula Strikes again and I just had to ask what the story was about and in a nutshell what I found on wikipedia.org was exactly the same, though with a little more information:
Bunnicula is a children’s book series written by James Howe about a vampire-bunny that sucks the juice out of vegetables. (ISBN 0-689-80659-0)
The story is centered on the Monroe family and their pets and is told from the perspective of their dog Harold. The Monroes find a bunny at the cinema where they were watching a Dracula film. Because of this, they dub him Bunnicula. Their cat Chester, however, is convinced Bunnicula is a vampire and attempts to get Harold to help save the Monroes from the perceived menace.
A 1979 animated TV special by the same name was created based on the first book and aired on the ABC Weekend Special.
Just a very strange concept…but now I know what to dress Peanut up as for Halloween this year.
He’d be a very interesting little vampire.
PS here is another pic that I found while looking for Bunnicula:
