Compiled into 26 half hour broadcasts, the Raving Rabbids are very much Alive and Kicking, as many of their console cousins have proven. They wont be the first video game star to also boast a reach into animation, joining the ranks of Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Link and Zelda, Qbert, Pac-Man, Dragon’s Lair, Mega Man and more. What video game toons did we miss…?
