BURBANK, CA (April 17, 2017) – Meet the world’s most adorable vampire, Bunnicula. The vampire rabbit from the best-selling children’s book series comes to life in Bunnicula, a brand-new animated comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation, currently airing on Cartoon Network and releasing on DVD June 27, 2017, by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE).

The series follows the paranormal comedy adventures of Bunnicula, the vampire rabbit. Bunnicula has an insatiable appetite for fresh vegetable juice, which boosts his paranormal powers. Upon moving to the mysterious Orlock Apartment building in New Orleans, 13-year-old Mina discovers Bunnicula locked away in a chamber way down in the basement. Mina falls instantly in love with Bunnicula, and adopts him as a pet, not knowing he has supernatural abilities.
The mischievous rabbit is met with open arms by Mina’s lovable, laid-back dog, Harold, and abject fear by Mina’s paranoid cat, Chester. However, Bunnicula loves Mina and will do anything to protect her from all the crazy supernatural animals and monsters he attracts, including ghostly alligators who squeeze through the pipes of their apartment building and sinister spider-lambs released from Bunnicula’s book of supernatural bedtime stories.
Hide your produce as no carrot is safe around this supernatural bunny, whose delightful escapades with Mina, Harold and Chester will take viewers on a set of entertaining, supernatural adventures.

She added, “Bunnicula blends mystery, comedy, the paranormal and cutting edge animation. It’s a fresh, original new series that’s not to be missed. We’re excited to offer it on DVD.”
