Remember Arthur? The aardvark that helped you know how to SPELL aardvark? This PBS show is still running and I think it's about time I ruin it for EVERYONE! It's my job! I started watching through some episodes and started to notice something: there are a LOT of bunnies on this show. Now, there are plenty of jokes to make about rabbits but what I have to show you is MUCH darker than that. I am about to pull back the veil to show the tragic secret of the Arthur universe.

  • I’m a rabbit lover. I have two in my living room right now. If you care for your rabbit properly, they can live longer. My first rabbit lived until she was nine. I don’t know the ages of my current rabbits, because they were rescues, but they came to the shelter eight and six years ago and are still doing pretty well. People who identify with the house rabbit “movement” usually quote 8-12 years for a lifespan. Anti-Easter Bunny campaigns (we are against live rabbits bred for and given as Easter gifts. Chocolate, toy and magical rabbits are welcomed.) will often say a rabbit is a decade long commitment. People started talking about “house rabbits” as more and more people were encouraged to bring their rabbits indoors, as opposed to having them live in a hutch outdoors all kinds of weather, much bigger cages, and letting them have at least some time outside their cage. (some people do full-time free range.) Less exposure to the elements (Your rabbits can go outside, but that’s very different than living your entire life outdoors) and more exercise (as opposed to being cooped up in a small area) tends to lead to healthier bunnies. The other difference is that we encourage spaying and neutering. I really doubt that’s happening in Arthur’s world, but they are probably choosing to have litters farther apart, which is easier on their bodies. (Another reason the “typical” lifespan is so low, is that they include people who breed rabbits, and some of them really push for more and more litters.) I believe a rabbit in Arthur’s world has a life that mirrors a house rabbit, not just any domestic rabbit. Even if they are having less children then the average un-neutered rabbit, (i’m guessing the number of pregnancies they have is similar to the other animals) I still think the first explanation makes the most sense. There’s not just tons of extra rabbits lying around, but bigger litters and families might increase the chance that a rabbit would be put up for adoption.

  • I think cartoons used to be made for kids, but with messages for the adults. They're created by adults, after all. Well, even animation movies today have innuendos and whatnot that only the adults will notice. Otherwise the parents wouldn't want to watch whatever their kids are watching. It would be too boring.

  • There might not be a _real-world_ biological explanation, but other fictional universes have already solved this question. In both Bojack Horseman and the Elder Scrolls, different humanoid species can produce offspring, but the offspring will be the same species as one parent instead of a hybrid. For example, in Bojack's world a human and dog could either produce a human baby or a litter of puppies. In the Elder Scrolls, the baby is always the same species/race as the mother but might inherit some subtle traits from the father. An Orc mother will always produce Orc children, regardless of whether the father was Orc, Imperial, Khajiit, etc. If the Arthur universe follows a similar rule, then a rabbit and dog could produce rabbit children.
