The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Kung-Fu Bunny is a mixed-media series that shows a mischievous animated bunny avoiding capture by a cartoon dog and the artist who drew them. It's a classic cat-and-mouse scenario with the added shtick of incorporating both live-action scenery and sketch artistry, which allows the characters all kinds of ways to move between scenes and avoid each other. Expect some brief scenes of cartoon fighting, none of which bothers the characters for long. As far as the rest of the content goes, there's nothing to fret in sharing this delightfully creative show with the whole family, and viewers of all ages will enjoy the characters' hilarious antics.

What's the story?
In KUNG-FU BUNNY, a cartoonist's drawings come to life on his sketch pad, starting with a mischievous white rabbit who leaves the page and gets into all kinds of trouble around the house. To try to keep him in line, the artist designs an upstanding dog named Choy Bao Doggy, but even the two of them together can't keep the bunny's antics contained. And so begins a lengthy and hilarious battle of wits between an impish bunny and his creator's loyal canine, who's always one step behind the rabbit's schemes and kung fu skills.
Is it any good?
Creativity abounds in this unique mixed-media series that pairs animated characters and props with live-action settings. As the bunny attempts to elude the dog and the cartoonist, he uses everything at his disposal to deter his would-be captors, from office supplies to home décor to his lightning-quick martial arts skills. He's also able to dart in and out of scenes through the pages on books, using illustrations of doors, windows, and modes of transportation as escape devices.
There's no dialogue in this rapid-fire series, but you won't even miss it with the constant flow of action and the naughty bunny's clever evasiveness. The scenery is constantly changing, alternating between animation and live-action and adjusting the viewers' perspective as well. Kung-Fu Bunny is a fun departure from the programming norm that has broad enough appeal to entertain the whole family.
