Bionic Bunny is a superhero who is the main protagonist of the television show of the same name. He is portrayed by Wilbur Rabbit.

Biography

Bionic Bunny's origin story varies. In D.W. the Copycat, a Bionic Bunny Show episode claims he was "created by a combination of super science and radical animal husbandry to fight crime". The images suggest that Bionic Bunny is a cyborg who may have begun life as a nonanthropomorphic rabbit. An episode in Buster's Back shows his bionic parts being constructed and fitted into his body.

On the other hand, according to the Bionic Bunny Tenth Anniversary Special that is mentioned in Happy Anniversary, Bionic Bunny and Dark Bunny are twins who were separated at birth. Dark Bunny was taken by an evil witch, and Bionic Bunny was taken by a robot.

Bionic Bunny is highly allergic to sodium chloride (NaCl), or salt.[2] Bionic Bunny's real name is Sue.[3]

Physical appearance

Bionic Bunny is a tall, muscular rabbit with a white complexion. He wears a blue shirt with a "B" on the front of his chest, dark blue pants, blue underwear over his pants, a red cape, a red hat with an antenna, and white and blue sneakers. In the promotional illustration, he wore a dark blue suit with red underwear over his suit, red sneakers, a red cape, and a red hat with a yellow antenna.

His actor, Wilbur, wears round brown glasses like Arthur's and casual clothes, outside of acting.
