Show Notes

A cute little episode. An absolutely adorable, bloody, religiously-motivated, death-fearing tiny little episode about fuzzy bunnies. JRR Tolkien gets a lot of credit for world-building in Middle Earth but Richard Adams did it all with rabbits. This franchise is one part Lord of the Rings, one part The Walking Dead, one part FernGully, all parts deceptively cool. What happens when a piece of media is lauded for its groundbreaking animation style but the remake (even with an all-star voice cast) doesn't live up to that reputation? Hop along with us into the world of Watership Down to find out.

Media covered:
Watership Down (1972)
Watership Down (1978)
Watership Down (2018)
