Lola Bunny

Lola Bunny is a cartoon character from Warner Bros. Studios. She is an anthropomorphic rabbit and has been established as having a romantic involvement with Bugs Bunny, as well as being his main love interest and girlfriend. She has tan fur, blonde bangs, and wears a purple rubber band on both ears like a ponytail. She has aqua colored eyes and she is 3'2" tall. Lola is voiced by Kath Soucie in her first appearance (in the 1996 live-action/animated film Space Jam), and by Britt McKillip in the animated series Baby Looney Tunes.

Lola's basketball skills get her a spot on the Toon Squad, in which the Looney Tunes characters battle the villainous Monstars for their freedom, with help from Michael Jordan.

Although she initially turned down Bugs' advances, her feelings shifted to affection after he saved her from a belly-flopping Monstar, getting himself painfully squashed in the process (showing that he was willing to put himself in harm's way for her and genuinely cared for her). Acting on these feelings, she kissed him and near the film's end, becomes his girlfriend.

Lola's personality is a combination of the Hawksian woman, Tomboy and Femme Fatale archetypes. She is a tough talking, no-nonsense woman (as displayed by her reactions to being called the term "doll", which she finds to be derogatory and highly offensive) who is extremely independent and self reliant. She is highly athletic (easily the best player after Michael Jordan himself). She is also incredibly seductive in her behaviour, quite capable of easily charming men around her (as displayed with the other Looney Tunes in her first appearance in the movie but with none more so than Bugs Bunny himself, her love interest and boyfriend)..

Lola also appears in the The Looney Tunes Show, voiced by Kristen Wiig. Compared to her "trophy girl" personality in Space Jam, her personality differs greatly in this show, along the line of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl archetype, and is also slightly less intelligent and more clueless to her surroundings. Her parents also appear along with her with her dad (who is completely different from that of the disapproving dad in "Dating Dos and Don'ts") voiced by John O'Hurley and her mother voiced by Grey DeLisle. Lola is Bugs' bubbly, kooky girlfriend, and she rapidly talks a mile a minute, whether anybody else is listening or not. She is also best friends with Tina Russo Duck. Lola's appearance also changed dramatically as well. In Space Jam, she had a very detailed figure, with blue eyes, and wore sportswear. In The Looney Tunes Show, her design was greatly simplified, including losing the blue iris of her eyes and now she is 4 feet tall. She sported a small, green dress with a light green belt for the show's promotion, and currently sports a purple dress with a yellow belt. Natural lola also appears in the looney tunes show voice by Kristen Wiig In the second season 2012.
