Guess the Rabbit’s Weight

Published on Monday, August 20th, 2018

Dick used to keep rabbits and Frank, a French Lop breed (just visible in his hutch, munching his way through some greens) was a giant amongst them.

Queen Charlton, the village in which Dick lived, holds an annual fête, and in 1983 Dick’s stall was a guess the rabbit’s weight competition. (reminiscent of how Babe is won in The Sheep-Pig).

Frank and Dodo the Dachshund regularly starred on television with Dick on TV:AM’s Rub-a-Dub-Tub show in the 1980’s. Here’s a picture of Frank and Dodo with Dick, showing Frank’s immense size.
