Movie Info

In an entertaining animated children's film for the youngest moppets only (no adult double takes here) a red, white, and blue rabbit miraculously appears to save the day like "Superhare." When not zooming about on roller skates, his special powers lie hidden in a mild-mannered alter ego named Rob Rabbit (voice of Barry Gordon). Rob is a normal bunny until one day some friends are threatened by a crashing boulder at a picnic. At that moment he is transformed into the "American Rabbit" and saves them. Then a crickety old rabbit overflowing with wisdom comes to tell him that his destiny is to go forth and conquer evil. So Rob heads out to conquer, first getting a job playing at the Panda-Monium piano bar in the city in order to support himself. There he tackles a nasty gang of jackal bikers that appear again and again in different contexts. They finally burn the bar to the ground, and so the die is cast and the gauntlet thrown down to the floppy eared super-rabbit.

Preachy superhero tale is trite and uninspiring.

...[makes] even the most quickie straight-to-video Disney release look astounding by comparison.

Audience Reviews for The Adventures of the American Rabbit

Do we really need an animated Superman rip off in the form of a patriotic rabbit? Seriously, who greenlights this crap.

Saw it on Netflix out of curiosity and didn't like it. This movie didn't make a lick of sense, especially the American Rabbit powers came out of nowhere. I know this was made for little kids, but at least try to make some sense to a movie about a super hero rabbit! Hell, Bugs Bunny as Super Rabbit made more sense than this!

I watched these when I was a kid and was happy to find it on DVD for my kids. Superhero rabbit who can fly and has roller skates.
