Animal Information
Species: Rabbit
Color: Gray
Male ♂
Owner: Ned, Rod and Todd Flanders (formerly)
First Appearance: "Trash of the Titans"

Mr. Bunny was a pet rabbit owned by the Flanders family. His backyard memorial service was spoiled as a result of Homer Simpson's bungling as Springfield's Sanitation Commissioner.


After Homer was elected Sanitation Commissioner, he blew through his department's entire annual budget in a month as a result of trying to keep promises he had made during his election campaign. To solve his budget crisis, Homer made deals with other cities, allowing them to dump their garbage in a mineshaft on the outskirts of Springfield in exchange for a fee. Homer's department was financially solvent again, but the volume of garbage crammed underground caused it to come to the surface anywhere there was a hole in the ground – such as on a golf green while Homer and Mayor Quimby were playing.

During this time, Mr. Bunny died and Ned, Rod and Todd buried him in their backyard. After the burial was complete, the three of them stood at the foot of the grave and Ned prayed, "Dear Lord, please take Mr. Bunny up to Heaven." At that point, the ground rumbled from the pressure of the garbage underground, and Mr. Bunny's corpse burst out of the grave, to the horror of all three Flanderses.
