Posted by MSNBC on Saturday, February 21, 2021 09:11:53Molly, the rabbit, was a popular character in the 1980s cartoon “Bubba the Love Sponge.”
Molly’s name also appears in the cartoon, as does her description of her behavior.
In her first scene, Molly is walking around the neighborhood.
“I’m a rabbit!” she says.
“And that’s a very nice name for a rabbit.”
She has a pet rabbit named Tootsie, and has been known to ride her.
Mollys antics, though, are more playful than cute.
She jumps into the air with her arms in the air and leaps onto a nearby car, which she runs toward.
Later, she runs across a lawn, throws a ball at a wall and runs in a circle, and she even has a game of tag.
And the name of the game?
In the cartoon Molly and Tootsies owner both use a sign to indicate which animal is which.
But, as one of the show’s most famous characters, Molly’s name is a trademark of Bobo the Bunny.
He is a fictional character created by cartoonist Mike Tyson in 1981 and created by a group of young cartoonists.
Tyson, who died in 2003, was the inspiration for Bobo, who is a member of the Bobo and Friends Circus and the first cartoon character to be named after a cartoon character.
Bobo is the founder of the circus, which also includes a television show, the Boba Fett cartoon series and a spinoff, Bobo: Fett’s World.
Bobo’s cartoon career lasted nearly three decades, from 1982 to 1992.
He was a fixture on TV shows such as “The Andy Griffith Show,” “The Golden Girls” and “Pee-wee’s Playhouse.”
In 1995, Bobos popularity was on the decline as the circus closed and the owner sold the circus to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The circus also closed in 2002, with the last show being held in 2012.
Boba was a cartoon staple on the popular kids shows “My Little Pony” and the Disney Channel.
After Bobo’s passing in 2003 the name “Bobo” became synonymous with the circus.
On Saturday, a group called the “Boba Fatt Museum” in Nashville, Tennessee, launched a campaign to rename the iconic character.
They said they were inspired by Bobo in part because of his “great spirit and love of animals.”
The campaign is aimed at the Bobos family and Bobo himself, and is being supported by a Kickstarter campaign, which has raised more than $40,000 as of Saturday.
While the campaign will be funded through donations, fans are encouraged to donate by donating through the site GoFundMe.com.
