Synopsis: All of the vegetables in New York City have strangely disappeared. The police have no leads in the case, so it is up to Thumperino Superbunny to solve the crime. Along the way he meets a cast of local characters and tangles with the evil villain Dr. Nilch and his robot henchmen. The Adventures of Superbunny educates on healthy eating, environmental awareness, consequences for one’s actions, self-motivation, courage, and confidence.
As part of our Pee-Wee Series, The Adventures of Superbunny has been chosen to entertain children but it should also be a fun experience for adults. The show will be zany and highly comical so come ready to show your comedic chops!
