A while ago I posted the song “Little Bunny Foo Foo“. The main action of the song can be seen in the chorus…
Little Bunny Foo-Foo
went hopping through the forest
scooping up the field mice
and bopping them on the head.
Today I had an annoyed comment about these lyrics…
Little Bunny Foo Foo is a fabbbulouss song. But I have to ask, WHY does bunny foo foo bop the field mice, or whatever other animal you say, in the HEAD?? It’s so rude, I just can’t figure it out. And do the field mice DIE when they are hit in the head? Or what?? PLEASE RESPOND WITH THE ANSWER!
Here’s my response…
I agree… I love this song… but have always been disturbed by the bunny bopping the field mice over the head! I myself don’t think they actually die (but I’m an optimist!). Just remember, he gets his in the end when the good fairy turns him into a field mouse!
If anyone would like to voice their opinion about this song, feel free to in the comments below!

Bunny Foo Foo doesn’t get turned into a field mouse, he gets turned into the goon, thus setting up the atrocious pun “Hare today, Goon tomorrow”. It’s a shaggy dog story for kids!

In the version we have he was turned into a field mouse – there seem to be different versions. I’ll add your comment to the song post.

Bunny Foo Foo gets turned into a goon, not a field mouse. I’m sure he doesn’t kill the mice, otherwise the GOOD fairy would not give him 3 chances!

I, and the 3 yr old I care for, were curious as well. Here is one of the responses I found. – it is rather peculiar:
