Little Bunny Foo Foo,
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head

In black and white!!
I had a really nice colored version but couldn't get it down to 6 colors. But this one adds DRAMA!

"Mr. FooFoo, where were you on the night of the 5th?"

It's actually RABBIT Foo Foo, not Bunny Foo Foo.

with most kids songs, semantics dilute throughout the versions. It's like Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. The actual lines, as I learned them, go like this:

"Through the years we all will be together, if the fates allow,
hang a shining star upon the highest bough."

whereas many people use the much less poetic and uglier

"until then we'll have to muddle through somehow".

It was Rabbit at Girl Scout day camp in Forest Park Queens too.

Little rabbit foo foo
hopping through the forest
scooping up the field mice and banging them on the head

Down came the good fairy
and she said

Little rabbit foo foo
hopping through the forest
scooping up the field mice
and banging them on the head

I'll give you three chances
and if you don't behave
I'll turn you into a goooooooooon

so the next day....


two more times until...

I gave you three chances
and you didn't behave
so now I'm going to turn you into a gooooooooooon

The moral of this story is
Hare today, goon tomorrow.


With hand motions!
The worst part was, we were in middle school, and we still loved that stupid song! So very annoying!

Kid songs are like that.
Then I taught my kids different words, to have it make more sense.
Little rabbit foo foo, I don't want you hoppin through the forest, scooping up the field mice ...

Doesn't matter, as long as you got the hand motions right!

If this wins, I'll need so many!
Me, two kids, and I would really have to find two girls from camp! I wonder what they would think if they got that shirt in the mail after 40 years! I bet they remember the song!

Your 'less poetic and uglier' version is the original. It was edited to be a 'brighter and cheerier' version later.

But, this shirt is hilarious.

Little BUNNY (as I learned it... Rabbit sounds ridiculous) Foo-Foo looks hilariously demented. I love it.

Here it is, from Wikipedia (reliable, I know.. but I'd heard the history of the song many times before Wikipedia was ever even concieved):

The song first appeared in a scene in Meet Me in St. Louis, in which a family is distraught by the father's plans to move to New York City for a job promotion, leaving behind their beloved home in St. Louis, Missouri just before the long-anticipated Louisiana Purchase Exposition begins. In a scene set on Christmas Eve, Judy Garland's character, Esther, sings the song to cheer up her despondent five-year-old sister, Tootie, played by Margaret O'Brien.[2]

When presented with the original draft, Garland, her co-star Tom Drake and director Vincente Minnelli criticized the song as depressing, with lines such as "Have yourself a merry little Christmas / It may be your last / Next year we may all be living in the past" and "Faithful friends who were dear to us / Will be near to us no more".[3] Though he initially resisted, songwriter Hugh Martin made several changes to make the song more upbeat. For example, the lines "It may be your last / Next year we may all be living in the past" became "Let your heart be light / Next year all our troubles will be out of sight".[3] Garland's version of the song, which was also released as a single by Decca Records, became popular among United States troops serving in World War II; her performance at the Hollywood Canteen brought many soldiers to tears.[4]

In 1957, Frank Sinatra asked Martin to revise the line "Until then we'll have to muddle through somehow". He told Martin, "The name of my album is A Jolly Christmas. Do you think you could jolly up that line for me?"[3] Martin made several other alterations, changing the song's focus to a celebration of present happiness, rather than anticipation of a better future. Although Sinatra's version is the most familiar to listeners today, some artists, such as James Taylor, have issued more recent recordings with the original lyrics of the Judy Garland version.

You sang that in nursing homes????? The old people must have wanted to kill you!

I remember singing it to my grandparents when I first learned it. It just goes on and on and on, with all the annoying inflections in the voice on some words. Great song to sing, but I wouldn't want to have to listen to it.

btw, I'm smilingjack too. I'm not hiding, I was just voting

That's not a replacement lyric. If the song is sung in its entirety, that is the actual last verse of the chorus.

it's still an ugly lyric, and still a variation, original or not. O Christmas Tree is the same way. And indeed, most kids songs vary from person to person. I've also heard the "Good Fairy" state "I don't like your attitude" instead of "I don't want to see you". And again, I find this adaptation foolish.

That said, does anyone else feel the "good fairy" in this sketch really doesn't evoke any sort of 'good" or "fairy" vibe?

This shirt was supposed to evoke a "twisted children's song" vibe. Aside from the crazy bunny, I made the fairy look very upset. Besides, how "good" could she be if she's turning innocent bunnies into goons? I hinted at the fairy-ness with the wand, wings and pointy ears (not as obvious). I tried making a nice fairy but it just didn't seem to fit.

Meh, the only time I ever heard this song was, when I was a little kid, from "Lamb Chop's Play Along" sung by Sheri Lewis and then it was BUNNY foo foo. No one else in my area had heard it before either. and afterwards I never heard it again, interesting shirt though. btw I'm form new england so I suppose that may explain it.

But i thought it was supposed to be a GOod Fairy.. that one there just skeers me....

I'm orginally fom New Zealand, and we don't have that song there (Rabbit or Bunny version), so I had NO idea what this shirt was going for. Some kind of demented rabbit clubbing squirrels with a hammer??? So I'm very glad I read the thread - this is way more funny now I know what it's referencing. Nice job.

Worry not, just before submitting this I asked my boyfriend if he ever heard of the song. He said "no" (he's from Louisiana). Which tossed me into a panic thinking this was too obscure.

Thank you everyone for voting up my tribute to that awful little addicting song!

When I met my partner, he did a funk version of this song on guitar. We were going to score it for full orchestra, à la Peter and the Wolf. Years later, I'd be happy to get a duo version done.

Good to see the t-shirt version done, though! ;->

I LOVE this design, great job! I recently looked up Nursery Rhymes for a school project and the ones I found all contained bunny - didn't see any that said rabbit. Also, the fairy in what i found was listed as the blue fairy - so really who cares? Bunny/Rabbit or Good/Blue/Black(my fav) fairy. It's a parody of an old favorite and I'm definitely in for one - so here's to Bunny Foo Foo's reign in the fog!!!

The original version that was revised for Meet Me in St. Louis, as it was considered too depressing:

ORIGINAL VERSION
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
It may be your last
Next year we may all be living in the past
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Pop that champagne cork
Next year we may all be living in New York
No good times like the olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who were dear to us
Will be near to us no more
But at least we all will be together
If the Lord allows
From now on, we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now

I bring it up because this shirt toys with the macabre, as well.

I never watched ren and stimpy. I know OF them, but never watched a show. I also never once thought of them when making this. But I can sort of see what you mean. It's ok though, I'm not trying to defend whether they look like R & S or not (since so many thing look like so many other things). Just FYI.

This ain't no innocent bunny, so it doesn't deserve a good fairy! I think the hammer is overkill for the bopping part of the song, but obviously over 300 people are not concerned.

I learned it as "bopping" too. It started out as a bop, but then he had a small hammer then it got bigger and BIGGER! Maybe it's overkill, but anything smaller wouldn't match his demented grin. :D <------- Sokowa's demented grin.

i don't think it's overkill...the large hammer adds to the comedy of the design & works well with that demented grin. a smaller hammer or the bunny making a fist (unless it was vastly exaggerated) isn't nearly as demented or funny.

Thank you! thank you!
As much as I'm having fun with this week's contest I'm going crazy looking at this and hearing the song non-stop in my HEAD! I'm surprised it hasn't gotten rejected on ground of mental cruelty

This is too awesome! I find it funny as hell that parents teach their children such horribly dark songs set to an peppy memorable tunes and the kids don't realize it until their in their teens looking back for some reason. This is so deliciously morbid and wicked and I LOVE IT! I'm going to be crushed if this doesn't win because I so want one.

Also as for lyrics: "Little Bunny Foo Foo" for me. "We Sing Silly Songs" kids tape cassette and accompanying music book. Maybe I'm just biased but "Rabbit Foo Foo" just seems to lack the flow of "Bunny".

Wow. I gave this shirt design its first vote because it was the only one without a vote at a time and I felt sorry for it. (And I remember singing Little Bunny Foo Foo with my kids.) And in a couple of days, it managed to leap past all those other entries into the fog. It's not really my kind of shirt (you have to understand, the violence in "Road Runner" bothers me, I buried the first bird I accidentally killed with a car, and I've always felt a little sorry for the poor field mice), but it's pretty neat to see such a surge.

The bunny is a tad more maniacal than I had envisioned him in the past. ;)

Good luck!

That was my first thought too.

Sorry, but no *giggles* from me... just a little TOO demented. Seems spot on for what you were going for though. Congrats.

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!

I'm so freakin happy this design is in the fog! My parents were a little creepier than most of yours; they sang "bashin' them on the head." And he was Little Rabbit Foo Foo. The good fairy sang, "Little Rabbit Foo Foo, I don't wanna see you scoopin' up the field mice and bashin' them on the head." That's the way I'm teaching it to my 4-year-old, anyway...

I think I recall bashin' too. But, I think for me...it was little bunny. But, boppin' sounds familiar as well. Guess they all get the same point across, right?

Indeed. They both point out the destruction power of "Lagomorpha" vs "Peromyscus polionotus"
yes I had to look those two up.

If this wins, I'll need so many!
Me, two kids, and I would really have to find two girls from camp! I wonder what they would think if they got that shirt in the mail after 40 years! I bet they remember the song!



yeah i guess that is why it got all its votes because it would make a great kids shirt. I just can't see me wearing it. seems to be holding its own with real published songs though. maybe woot should have kid song theme derby. This would be a shoo in!! well wont buy this one but i bet you it will sell out if it wins. goos luck.

I guess I can add another verb to the mix. In the version I'm familiar with, Little Bunny Foo Foo *smacked* the field mice on the head.

Ha, I guess that's why it's good that we weren't allowed to use text. This way the shirt can be whateeeeever version you want ;)
