I know some Lola-lovers-Honey-haters or Honey-lovers-Lola-haters will want to kill me for this picture :P Especially the first group will scream 'BURN HIM! BURN HIM! NOW!'.

At DeviantArt there are plenty of pictures done by Honey-haters in which Lola Bunny fights with Honey Bunny. In almost all cases Honey loses, being killed, burned of suffocated by Lola. Some people's morbid hate for a fictional character remains a mystery for all psychiatrists...

I decided to do something different because when I read all comic stories featuring Honey Bunny I have on my computer and seen some interesting things like early sketches for Space Jam it came out that Lola and Honey are the same character, and Lola Bunny is just an updated version of Honey Bunny. More information here: [link]

So I asked myself a question: why so many 'fans' portray them as fighting enemies? Can't they just be friends?

So... here's a picture in which they are friends. Friends Forever. :)

I was thinking on whether to draw Honey Bunny in her yellow or gray version. I chose gray because if she was yellow with blonde hair she would like too much like Lola in drag.

Don't forget to visit unofficial website of Honey Bunny: [link] and like her Facebook fanpage: [link]

I know Honey is her own character, but I still can get past the thought that all this is Bugs crossdressing again.

Honey has been through several redesigns & color changes. Lola's name was initially going to be Honey right up until  a last minute name change for Space Jam. I guess they thought it would be too ironic for someone named Honey to hate being called Babe when her name already sounded derogatory enough.

So Honey & Lola are the same person, just like Goofy is also George Geef. Lola seems to specifically be modeled after this iteration of Hunny: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…

I agree with this. It's like with the Sonic fandom Amy and Sally getting hated. Seriously, what's with this much hate?!

Truer words were never spoken.

That's the wonderful thing about animated characters: they're almost limitless as to what they can do and how they can interact. Even Tom and Jerry would team up when presented with a worthy antagonist. :)

How can they hate each other when they never officially and canonically met?

Ivellios, have you noticed in those pics in which Lola and Honey are fighting, that none of them depict the yellow comic book version of Honey?

Yeah, I noticed. All such 'works of (f)art' I've seen so far contain the most recent gray 'Bugs-like' version of Honey Bunny. I think the reasons may be:
- 'artists' haven't read any comic story with Honey Bunny, they just saw one or two most recent pictures with her and thought 'Hey, she's a bitch because she looks like Bugs in drag!'
- they totally ignore the fact that Honey Bunny has had many faces (yellow with floppy/standing ears, gray with floppy/standing ears, yellow/gray with blonde hair, etc.)
- they are Lola fanatics
- they don't know (and maybe don't even want to know) that Lola is just a newer version of Honey :P ([link])

Cute. I'd like to see a Looney Tunes cartoon in which the two bunnies meet.

Me too. But I think it will just remain in the reality of fans' dreams.

Today's children (whom The Looney Tunes Show is created for) don't recognize Honey Bunny. If children don't recognize a character, parents won't buy them toys with it.

Some time ago I've read that Warner Brothers just wanted to make quick money and sell some more merchandise with Looney Tunes characters and that's why they made The Looney Tunes Show... perhaps that's why the whole series looks like it's been done in a slapdash way

I never read the Bugs Bunny comics, but from what you said, Honey sounds pretty interesting. I hate it when people draw 2 of the main character's girlfriends killing or fighting each other, it gets really redundant and crazy fast >,<

You haven't read comics? So you missed a large part of the Looney Tunes history :(

If you want to read comic stories featuring Honey Bunny you may find most of them in her gallery: [link] I put all stories I have on my computer. My collection still lacks few comic stories I knew about, however, it is still much to read :)

When I downloaded and read many comics issued from 1941 up to date I realized that before Bugs Bunny met Honey Bunny he has already had few other girlfriends and even two wives. Knowing that he is with Honey Bunny (now updated to Lola - I'm not talking about Lola in TLTS 'cause for me she's completely different character...) since 1966, it seems to me she is the only girl he really loves :)
