Pop culture's best ever bunnies

Be it memorable roles in films, as characters and illustrations in books, or even selling batteries in TV ads - there's something about the humble rabbit that resonates with people in a way guinea pigs and hamsters just can't.

From the incredibly cute Thumper of Disney's Bambi to the utterly creepy anthropomorphic Frank of cult psychological thriller Donnie Darko, as well as the incongruously sexy Cadbury's Caramel Bunny, the pointy-eared, buck-toothed fluffballs have burrowed their way into our hearts.

So, before ripping the gold paper off this Easter's Lindt bunny, take a look at 25 of pop culture's most famous bucks and does and let us know which is your favourite in the comments section below, or on Twitter.
