Beaming For Bucky

As you all should be aware of by now, I won.

That's right losers, I know more about television characters than you do, and because of my vast knowledge Galileo has bestowed the great honor of writing a post here on Beaming For Bunnies to me.

At first I didn't really know what to write about, this being someone else's blog and effectively someone else's thoughts, I have to admit, I was mildly nervous. But then I remembered that I WON, so I get to choose the topic.

So since this is Beaming For Bunnies, I've decided to share with you some of my thoughts on a bunny who has been sadly and unjustly forgotten as of late.

Bucky O' Hare.

Who's Bucky O' Hare you ask?




Well I'll tell you, he was a 5 foot tall anthropomorphic rabbit, captain of the Righteous Indignation, And known Toad hater.

Bucky O'Hare along with Jenny, Deadeye Duck, Blinky and Willy DuWitt are members of S.P.A.C.E, which is an abbreviation for Sentient Protoplasm Against Colonial Encroachment.

And from what I remember of the Cartoon, The Bad Guys were The Toad Empire, Led by the infernal KOMPLEX, A giant computer or something I believe.

Bucky O'Hare had his modest beginnings in a comic book, and like most comic books in the late eighties/early nineties, spawned an animated show, toyline (which was beautiful), Several video games, and there was even consideration for a live action movie at one point in 1994.

One of my favourite action figures of all time came from this toyline, Deadeye Duck, A Duck with 4 arms, 4 guns, an eyepatch and a bad attitude.



No matter where I was going when I was a lad, Deadeye Duck would accompany me, be it church, school, dinner or dancing, Anything would be fun when I had a 4 armed duck to share my thoughts with.

So in summation, Bucky O'Hare was a wonderful little series/toyline that isn't getting it's due these days, Yes it's true, it was essentially T.M.N.T in space, but it holds a great place in my memory.And if you need more convincing to check it out, The guy who voiced Deadeye Duck also voiced Rattrap, Need I say more??

I'd like to sincerely thank Galileo for allowing me the chance to write something for Beaming For Bunnies, I hope I didn't let him down. And I'd like to thank you all for reading, even if you are losers, I WON!!



Obviously, this entry was written by the winner of my little game, JoshC. He happens to be wonderfully Canadian, so that's why you saw "favourite." Not that there's anything wrong with that. I happen to like syrup, just without adding "ou" to it. That, and we don't ride Mounties and say "God save the Queen" even though we're no longer affiliated with Britain. So there.

My take on this topic...I hardly even knew of this show. I might have had the Bucky figure now that I think of it. But I'd tune out at that theme, which followed the 80s-90s theme of compressing the entire story into a single minute.

I might do another little game in the near future, so you might get a new chance to earn this VERY special prize. Remember to email me at beamingforbunnies@gmail.com

So, Back Bacon Boy feels special now? ;)

I freely admit I don't know much about television. I never watched that much as a kid, my parents preferred we play outdoors. And I don't watch much now. So, the next game shouldn't be TV quotes...or I'll be sad because I know I won't win. :(

It's worth noting that Deadeye Duck was classed as an enemy combatant and sent to Gitmo.
