  15. Daphne Moss says:

    Better to pet while they’re feeding. They feel safe then.

  16. CathyDee says:

    When do their nasty, big, pointy teeth come in?

  17. sabrina rose says:

    I adopted four baby dwarf bunnies a few months ago. Just love ‘em! Darling little pets! I was surprised to see such fast reactions of the newborn babehs, how acutely they perceive “predators.” Probably is best to pet when Mom is there.

  18. nicolletta13 says:

    Must…resist…nibbling…baby…bunny….ears….

  19. rapunzel210 says:

    Like the dalmatian mice in Royal Tenenbaums–too cute!

  20. victoreia says:

    I’m astonished…astonished, I tell you!…..that 260Oakley hasn’t given us the punny low-down on these behbehs!

    [ded]

  21. Half way through the (too short!) video I realized I was saying “ohhhh lookit how cute they are!” out loud and in a reallllllly high pitched voice that sounded nothing like me. lol

    I wish I wasn’t allergic to rabbits. :(

  22. I was watching this video and chirping about how cute it was, etc, and my boyfriend looked over and said, “Don’t you wish we had that little box full of tiny cute baby bunnies?” Boy do I ever :S
    Do you think I could use that rhetorical question as an invitation to adopt a little box full of tiny cute baby bunnies?

  23. OMG, They are the cutest ever and I wish I could adopt all of them!

  24. mandy_Reeves says:

    bun-corn!

  25. they look like they want to hide/snuggle in darkness. not so cute for me.

  26. cassandra says:

    the title of this video should be “Enh!!!”

  27. literal snugglebunnies

  28. Hon Glad says:

    I really like the music, would one of our musician peeps, care to elucidate
    on the instrumentation?
    The snuggling up to each other would appear to be a feeding reflex, like wise,
    the binking,would seem to be an escape reflex.

  29. Martha in Washington says:

    Each one is hardly even a mouthful. So I will take them all please for a little snack.

    “one of these things is not like the others…”

    Oh and nobody has called “Matchingks!” yet!

  30. OMGOMGOMGOGMMG WHERE DO I GET ONEEEE
    i looked on their website and CANNOT FIND D:

  31. Aw little English Spots! I know they look like they should be snuggled with momma, but mother bunnies actually spend very little time in the nest. They only feed twice a day or so, and the rest of the time they stay away to keep predators from finding the babies. They look well-fed and healthy – that overblown twitch reflex is the firings of a rapidly developing nervous system. Tiny puppies do something similar,

  32. ROFL I laughed at the sproinging going on at the end! So cute!

  33. Alice Shortcake says:

    I want ONE FOR EACH FINGER!

    …but my cat wouldn’t approve.

  34. gooeyctr says:

    Ooo, real live Peeps — I think each one would make a perfectly delicious addition to a big cup of cocoa!

  35. They’re SLEEP HOPPING!!!

  36. @ Angie – they’ll go up on the site once they’re old enough to be adopted, probably in a month. So bookmark the page and check back.

  37. Beauregard says:

    Mexican jumping buns!

  38. @DC – this has been discussed before… As someone who raises bunnies, I can assure you that mother wabbits do not reject babies if they’ve been touched, especially not bunnies that feel secure & are raised in a calm/proper way. The “don’t touch or the Mom will reject them” is a myth….

    PS: Awwwwwwwww!!!!!!! I wuvs those baby wabbies! =)

  39. 260Oakley says:

    Mmm, these little hare pieces make great lappetizers.

  40. @cathydee – hahahaha

    sooooooooooo cute!!!!! i love how they have mastered the art of finding the axis of snorgling so early :D

  41. I just came out with The Squee Heard ‘Round the World. I would like to stuff them all in my mouf for some delicious snackage.

  42. Lerrinus says:

    Too…cute…can’t…breathe…*thud*

  43. Birdcage says:

    skittish, aren’t they? I like when the finger comes into the frame.

  44. Three, plus the momma and the basket. And if you happen to have a male bunneh hanging around, it’d be great if he could come. Disapproving the whole while, of course.

    KAYOOTEHS.

  45. good thing I don’t live anywhere near California!

    and look at their leeetle peeenk feeeetsies!

  46. OMG. Fingerling buns. Little guy doesn’t like that finger. He’s all, “AAAAAGH! Giant finger! Hop away!”

  47. @Hon Glad

    This is a song by Andrew Bird, who is an amazingly fantastic musician. The song in particular is “Plasticities” off of his Armchair Apocrypha. Sounds like a live version.

    I’ve seen him twice live now, he is super fantastic. He plays violin and guitar and uses a loop petal to layer track after track on top of eachother, until it sounds like a full orchestra. He’s also a fantastic whistler and lyricist! <3

    Anyway, bunnies are super cute too!

  48. I second the bunny ear nibbling – perhaps we need to form an Ear Nibblers Anonymous. A thought.

    Furthermore – no need to see the scale of these tiny marshmallows. The persistent snuggling and tiny bunny hopping is torturous enough.

    Cuteoverload.com. You kill me.

  49. lol -the little guy at the end. he’s all like, “i can’t control my jumpinkgs!!!”

  50. @oakley: grooooooooaaan!! i’m not letting my husband anywhere NEAR this site, or he will be taking lessons from you, and i can’t take ONE MORE PUN from that man, lurve him tho i do. lappetizers—play on lapin? my you are a worldly punster.

    i too have emitted a supersonic squeeeeeeee! love the automatic jumping–like a hammer to that spot just below your kneecap. reflexes? CHECK!

    nomnomnomnomnom

  51. shahinrani says:

    I didn’t realize baby bunnies were so shovey. I like how they seems determined to line themselves up like that!

  52. I appreciate the bunny concerns from those worried about them. But we are a smart and responsible animal rescue group. So it’s our priority that these little buns are perfectly happy and safe—- and with their excellent mama bun Bettina, too! Maybe I should add “No bunnies were harmed in the making of this video.” :)

  53. BStrange says:

    Itty bitty squee-inducing bun says: “I disapprove of this finger. *inept SPROING!*”

  54. The black-spotted ones are going to be so very pretty when they grow up! Not that mister brown bunny won’t be pretty too. ^_^

  55. Gabby Smith says:

    Ohmigod, ohmigod, they are so cute that my cute senses have been overloaded!

    Off to find the hubby to tell him that we neeeeeeed some!

  56. As a child raised on Sesame Street, naturally I want to play “One of these things is not like the other.” But is it the gray one, or the jumpy one pointing in the wrong direction? Hmmmm….

  57. Truth is, they’re at least a week old there because the little cuties are born naked! So just imagine how small they were a week (or more) ago!!

  58. michelle b. adams says:

    it’s a video! i cannot view it! how bout a still shot for those of us without video?

  59. Hon Glad says:

    Emudoug – Thanks for the info. I could hear violin and guitar but also the ‘Orchestra’
    sound. Do you have a CD number and record lable? Coming from me this is a great compliment for Andrew Bird as I mostly listen to dead 18th /19th century composers 80)

  60. I’ll take a pallet of those to go please. OMG soo cute!

  61. Rivahcat says:

    That’s it, that’s my total sweetness quotient for today! *searches for blood sugar meter*

    Oh, if ONLY they stayed that perfect babybunnular size!!!

  62. @Brooke – thank you to you and your rescue group for your wonderful work!
    Pay no mind to the nuffers… every time there’s a post of a babeh bunneh, we hear the “don’t touch, momma bunneh will reject, no she won’t” refrain…

    [You only hear a fraction of it. Trust me. Sparky & I hear the rest. :roll: – Ed.]

  63. janet2buns says:

    Judging by the size of the mommeh bunneh, these cuties will grow up to be sizable rabbits. Don’t adopt based solely on the cute factor, adopters should educate themselves on how big the rabbit will likely end up being. Having said that, mommeh bunneh Bettina looks like a lovely girl. We wish them all safe and loving forever homes.

  64. Aww, Janet2buns, you just destroyed my lovely fantasy of having one of these minibuns and it being so tiny as to escape my hubby’s notice; of course, his incessant sneezing would have clued him in to the fact that “something is rotten in the state of Denmark”

  65. I think one of those buns would fit very nicely in a hot dog . . . um . . . . bun.

  66. resriechan says:

    @ HonGlad: please see the following link. Once you’re on the website, you can click on various items around the page to get to the individual person’s biography, or the discography, or the recording data, etc. This website is QUITE good for music analysis & deep data (detailed breakdown of recording dates, etc.).
    It is NOT a youtuby-performance-watching source. I have been delighted & have nearly always been able to locate QUITE diverse/ somewhat obscure & non-current data there
    (Django Reinhardt, Julie London, Tabu Le Rochereau from W Africa, etc, etc & etc):

    So — regarding Andrew Bird and specifically a listing of albums:

    http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:anfpxqyhld6e~T2

  67. I approve of this post.

  68. I like how the last bit of the video just has the command “ADOPT.” I think I heard a giant, enthusiastic, consensual “OKAY!” from viewers everywhere.
    Seeing these leetle English spots reminds me of one my family had a few years ago. (She was rescued too!) Her name was Belinda, and she was simultaneously full of sweetness and attitude. I wasn’t thinking of disapproving rabbits back in the day, but sometimes it would’ve fit her. My sister dubbed her feet-tucked-under postion the “Marshmallow position,” and I still use it for rabbits to this day. (For cats, it’s the “meatloaf postion.”)
    And incidentally, is anyone here familiar with “The Muppet Christmas Carol?” The two girl children of Bob and Emily Cratchet are named Belinda and Bettina. I found it funny that I had a Belinda bunny and here is a Bettina bunny… =)

  69. Marcy Hunt says:

    Thumper, Jumper, Bumper,Crumper and Humper-sorry about the last one but they are Bunnies!

    [Totally understood. – Ed.]

    […oh, and spay/neuter your pets! ;) – Ed.]

  70. @Hon and @ resriechan

    It occurs to me that this exact version of plasticities is from the andew bird daytrotter session, which can be found here. I knew that seemed familiar.

    Armchair Apocrypha is off of Fat Possum records, though I have no idea what the cd number is.

  71. ysubassoon says:

    *SPLODEYHEAD*
    .

    Oh, man. Someone’s going to have to come over here and clean up all the rainbows and glitter now.

  72. Awwww! Too much cuteness, I must look away!

    They’re all nuzzling like they’re looking for Mommy!

  73. This gives a whole new meaning to ‘fingerbun’…

  74. If I had a lotta munnees, I would build a huge compound as big as the state of Texas; it would house as many homeless and needy animals as it could hold, and be staffed by loving, caring aminule caretakers; ……yes, dream on, CKK ….. :wink:

  75. Cool, the video is from Sante D’Or Foundation. They’re a wonderful shelter in Los Feliz. If you’re in LA and looking to adopt a dog, cat or bunneh, look ‘em up.

  76. Martha in Washington says:

    Rowcat–“The Muppet Christmas Carol” is my absolute favorite filmed version of that story so I immediately thought “Ha! Belinda and Bettina–but which one is which?” Can’t decide which is cuter–live babeh bunnehs or muppet pigs.

  77. Emudoug @resriechan – Thank you both. I don’t know if either of you have heard Ravi Shankar’s score for “Charlie” but the cross rythms and use of multiplexer have echo’s in
    Andrew Bird’s work.

  78. very cute, like lil mexican jumping beans..

    that being said, Please don’t breed your bunny – too many in shelters and being dumped on craig’s list..People never realize the work buns require nor the fact that they live 8-12 years just like a dog, but with big chompin’ teeth that they do not grow out of.

    ….SPAY OR NEUTER….

  79. @jane, YES! thank you for saying that. please don’t breed any pet you have. they are so cute as babies, but there are too many homeless pets out there.

    we rescued the mama of these baby buns less than a month ago (she was next to a dumpster!) Our bunny vet thought she was too young to be spayed. But lo and behold, she was already preggers!

  80. WendyPinNJ says:

    FINGER SIZE BUNNEHS!

    They so cute and tiny and twitchy!

  81. If I wasn’t so allergic to bunny wabbits, I would so huggle. They are just so dang cute.

  82. Molly D.S. says:

    Oh my god they are so cute and hilarious! I wonder how small dwarf bunny babies would be if these ones are already so small.

  83. i like they was they jump and get all surprised when a hand touches them. I felt bad for tem thouhg cuz they wanted their mommy and she wasen’t in there with them

  84. Hehe! Makes me miss my lionhead’s litter. I swear, there’s nothing as cute as fluffy, teeny wabbit babies. With liddle white noses and orange fur :3333

  85. they are so cute!!!!!!! just love the vid.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!8)

  86. Tooo cute!:):D OMG i’ll take allof them!!!!! :)

  87. I found this very cute…. but I think poking at the babies was very mean. It was obviously frightening to them. They are young and not yet aware… the poor things were flopping all over the place. You should be more considerate of things from the animal’s perspective.

  88. @heather; the jumping thing is a natural reflex as their little bodies develop and grow, learning to hop. they hop around on their own without anybody touching them. (and i certainly wasn’t poking at them, or being mean.)

  89. mmm, nice & warmy… springs in me feet

  90. sparkleplenty says:

    FYI, when I tried to view this, a virus was attached to the file. Thankfully, it was caught in time.

  91. awwwww!!! :)
