Vegetarian vampire rabbit ‘Bunnicula’ sinks his teeth into Boomerang this May
Monday, April 18, 2016
Premieres Monday 2nd May at 4:15pm
This May, the nocturnal, red-eyed, fang-toothed rabbit, Bunnicula, soars on to Boomerang, joining a line-up of animated comedy favourites such as The Tom and Jerry Show, Wabbit and Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! The highly-anticipated series Bunnicula is based on the best-selling children’s book of the same name and follows the paranormal comedy adventures of a vegetarian vampire rabbit who, instead of drinking blood, drains the juice of carrots and other vegetables to fuel his supernatural abilities. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation with 40 all-new 11 minute episodes, Bunnicula premieres exclusively on Boomerang on Monday 2nd May at 4:15pm.
The brand new series follows 13 year-old Mina Minroe and her family as they move into an old flat they inherited from great aunt Marie in New Orleans. Mina discovers a chamber in the cellar and unlocks the door to Bunnicula - a furry, wide-eyed, black and white rabbit locked inside. Mina falls instantly in love with the rabbit, not knowing he has supernatural abilities. The mysterious rabbit is met with open arms by Mina’s lovable, laid-back dog, Harold, but feared by her paranoid cat, Chester, who can only focus on the potential paranormal trouble a vampire rabbit can attract. However, Bunnicula loves Mina and her family and will do anything in his power to protect them from all the crazy otherworldly animals and monsters his supernatural powers seem to attract to the house.
The brand new series of Bunnicula follows the lovable vegetarian vampire rabbit and his friends, Harold and Chester, through their unbelievable paranormal mishaps. From encountering a ghost gator busting his way through their flat's water pipes to a vampire tick that latches onto Harold and takes over his body and mind - no matter how big or small the adventure, Bunnicula is almost always both the cause of and solution to all of their problems.
Bunnicula premieres exclusively on Boomerang on Monday 2nd May at 4:15pm and rolls out weekdays with all-new episodes.
