The Rabbit Season

It’s that time of year when rabbit-hunting is permitted! As the the season workshop comes to an end again. Or is it Duck season? Rabbit-season typically runs from early November to late February, however some hunters wait and on this occasion, after Daffy has convinced Elmer that it is in fact rabbit season, he sets out to prove his argument.

In the Beginning

Julien

It all started with that looney crazy Tasmanian devil commonly known as Taz. Best known mostly for his grunts and growls, he had chosen to spin and bite back to the beginning of cartoon history.

That single line drawing depicting a desert oasis to try to convince you that this was going to be an easy task. However, he was beaten to the start by Speedy Gonzales, tempted by the smell of delicious wedges of cheese.

Chris

Speedy Gonzales was no ordinary mouse, he was the fastest mouse in all Mexico. No cheese was safe with him around as he would always get to it first.

Saying this, he was prepared to share his treasure with his dear friend Tweety-Pie. They had something in common, that pesky cat. Speedy would share the cheese as long as Tweety let him know when Sylvester was around. Often you would hear Tweety saying “I taut I taw a puddy cat!” this sometimes confused Speedy because it was usually a false alarm, that was until offered cheese.

James

Cheese was precious and the sustainable food for all mice. Yet, Daffy in his wisdom thought he was missing out. Although he was deflecting duck-season away from himself. He just couldn’t help want a piece of that delicious cheese. He chose his moment after hiding in a barrel that had previously been full of carrots.

The Hunt for Wabbits

Reisha

The hunting for rabbits caught the attention of Petunia Pig. The significant other to Porky Pig. She thought it would be a good idea to serve Rabbit up for Porky’s dinner, so she grabbed her blasters and went on her mission. Little did she know was that Bugs would be nowhere to be seen.

Jennifer

After a brief encounter with Marvin the Martian, they decided because Bugs Bunny was one of his long term enemies, they would both join in the search for the rabbit. Marvin had alternative ideas. He was bent on destroying Planet Earth, just because it blocked his view of the planet Venus.

Natasja

Marvin was certainly on another mission but he was pretending to search for rabbits. He came across Tweety-Pie. Tweety was concerned with his motives, she always thought him to be something of an earth enemy and wondered what his intentions really were.

Phil

Meanwhile, Lola Bunny was attending the local Space Jam games and about to score the winning shot, then from nowhere appeared Daffy. Was he trying to throw the game? Lola was Bugs Bunny’s girl and Daffy wanted her to tell him exactly where he was. No way was she going to spill his whereabouts and certainly not to the Duck.

A Desert Oasis

Jana

The hunt for the rabbit took Daffy to the most unusual places. The desert is a hot and humid place. Home too many Looney Tunes, and the desert can really play on your mind. It can make you see things that really aren’t there. This illusion makes Daffy see Petunia pig looking out of her window. If she couldn’t get the rabbit was she going for the duck?

Bev

After Daffy realises the heat has got to him, he stands still, realising he is lost and now he thinks he is going Looney. As the haze disappears, Daffy sees the martian. He has met him before and knows that this martian is hostile.

Having landed on Earth, Marvin is aware of all the signs revealing its Rabbit Season, but he remembers the trick Daffy played on him and he has not forgotten. he also knows it’s really duck season. Put into a difficult situation, Daffy tells him he knows where Bugs is, mumbling “Youuu’re deththpicable!” as they go off hunting.

Sacha

Tweety overhears the conversation that Daffy is having with Marvin. ” In order to hide Bugs Bunny from Marvin the martian and keep him safe. Tweety decides to use her hammer to help knock him under the sand. As Bugs disappears, he emerges into a dream or even a nightmare.

Is it a Dream or Nightmare

Boris

Carrots loads of carrots, more carrots than any cartoon could ever bestow. However, when Bugs found them, they had been eaten and just the stalks left behind, “Eh, What’s up Doc?” Standing there was Daffy holding a sign suggesting to Bugs that it was indeed Rabbit season. Bugs knew it really wasn’t that time of year as he had already dealt with the farmer and managed to escape.

This really was a nightmare, he never would have believed Daffy would do this to him. He was his best friend but then again, he could be his worst enemy. Only one who could sort this out was Road Runner. Road runner could always escape the clutches of the continuous efforts of a coyote and this help could really get Bugs out of the situation about to unfold.

Karine

And yet the show must go on. Taz thinks he can catch the rabbit by throwing carrots in all directions. What Taz doesn’t realise, is when he stops spinning, he is actually spotted and Tweety could see what he is up to.

David

In order to distract Taz, and to be honest not be eaten. Tweety crushes the carrots and tells Taz this is the way to catch the rabbit. She had an alternative motive thou, she knew Sylvester would never go near her if Taz was around. She found safety in his company even though he was the most unpredictable character she could befriend.

Maelick

Daffy was having none of it. He was adamant it was rabbit season and not duck season. Then in all the commotion, a volcanic eruption exploded (meep, meep) Road Runner ran after daffy to get to a safe place. Even though they were facing danger, Daffy wasn’t letting his argument go. And to this day, do you think Bugs Bunny was found during the rabbit season?

That’s all Folks!

Boris

For now stay Looney stay Toony and That’s All Folks! or is it all?

Flattery or Paid Work

Recently, here at Stuck in Plastic, we discussed the concern of commercial usage of our photos on platforms such as IG. This sparked a conversation about the artistic licensing of photographs – “Can anyone just use your photographs or content?” And for which target groups is it okay and which target groups is not okay?

From Us To You

Dear All

A most interesting year is coming to an end. It has been extraordinary in many ways. To some, it was a very busy year. Most everyone will have had to change their plans more than once. Others may say it has been a slowed down year with a low pace, less work (or none), and way too much social distance. We are all hoping for twenty-one to come along with more safety, more health, and more freedom than twenty did.

Speed Champions – A Status Quo

Good-bye 20, Hello 21

While writing this we are in December of the year 2020. Many people can hardly wait for this year to end. That is for different reasons. Every human has in one way or another been affected by the pandemic.  Wishes for this year to end are often strongly connected to hopes for a better 2021, with fewer restrictions in everyday life and at best no more curfews. Others may feel that they can’t wait to find out what the next year brings along. As we’re aiming to mainly focus on toy photography and LEGO here, let’s take a closer look at one specific theme: Speed Champions.

It’s a book!

Well.


Stefan and I have a series in the making.
We call it The Unfinished Projects.
One day we will kind of start finishing them.
Or so they say.
So when we kicked off the #SiPgoesVirtual 2020 with the statement that “the book was written” and the only thing that was missing was the pictures, some of the participants most probably thought of the book of Denmark that is still in the making.
Unfinished projects.
Stefan and I are pretty good at that.

Anyways. Here we are.
Four weeks after the very first ever #SiPgoesVirtual.
And we are having a printed copy in our hands!

If you are curious what the story was all about, you can read the full book at Blurb (and even get your own copy if you want).

We have a super deluxe hardcover that goes well on any coffee table and a mini-me of the story for the collectors of books, who’s coffee table is already fully packed.

It’s a book.
And it is finished.

And yes, we are a tiny wee bit super proud of it.

The Machines Are Taking Over

Finally Back In Billund

The last time I went to The LEGO House was quite some time ago.
Back in March, I went to Billund to pick up my copy of the Tree of Creativity.
I had planned to return just two months later in May.
And guess what. Covid-19 made me change my plans.

Yesterday, a good six months later I finally was able to stop by the Home Of The Brick on my way further north for some holidays.
And lucky me it was.
It turned out that yesterday was only the second day of a new attraction at the store inside Ole Kirks Plads 1. A brand new Minifigure Factory. Open to the public. And yours truly.

Your reporter in the field …
