Mel Blanc & Pat Woodell in Bunny & Claude (1968)

Obscurity factor: 9

This animated short was inspired by the success of Bonnie and Clyde (1967). In it, we meet Bunny and Claude, two outlaw rabbits who rob carrot patches. They're pursued by the sheriff who can never seem to get the upper hand. Their catch phrase was "we rob carrot patches," a parody of the films "we rob banks."

Bunny and Claude appeared in two shorts, the above eponymous title and The Great Carrot-Train Robbery, below.

These animated shorts are hard to find. Because shorts are always sold as compilations on DVD, it's hard to tell if they've been released. You can, however, watch both on YouTube, thanks to uploads by jgbennie.

Obscurity factor: 9 (largely forgotten, unclear whether they're on DVD, available on YouTube)
