AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Goggle and Diddle are funky bunnies who rhyme to pass the time. When Fatso, a strange cat, and Hapless, a silent horse, offer them fame and riches as a hip-hop act at the Circus Extraordinary, the bunnies disobey the instructions of their wise rapper grandaddy (Da G) to wait for his return. Instead, they follow the strangers into what turns out to be a hideous trap. There's a happy ending for the bunnies but first they must stand up to cruelty and exploitation and unite with their fellow circus workers in a revolt against Fatso's miserable circus. Features a power-ballad sung by a horse, a Jay Kay-styled apprentice clown, a cat that resembles Tom Waits and lots of hip-hop, boombox action from all the rabbits concerned.
