"Bunny Hunt" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 11. In this episode, a sea bunny ravages Squidward's garden, but SpongeBob thinks it's cute.



The episode begins with Squidward making a vegetable version of himself. However, he forgot the parsley, so he goes to get some from his backyard. When he tries to take it out, he ends up getting pulled underground by a bunny. Meanwhile, Squidward's meal gets burned due to sitting in the oven for too long. This makes Squidward want to get rid of the bunny.

Squidward's house burns.

After failing to attack the bunny, Squidward hides in a large carrot so he can call animal control so they can take the bunny. They come, but SpongeBob prevents them from taking the bunny and decides to raise it himself.

SpongeBob brings the bunny to his house and tries to feed it. However, since the bunny only wants vegetables, SpongeBob goes to the Barg'N-Mart to get something. While he is there, the bunny starts looking for food, only to make a mess in SpongeBob's living room. SpongeBob puts hot sauce everywhere to prevent the sea bunny from doing this again, but the bunny eats the hot sauce and causes fires around the room. Thankfully, SpongeBob stops the fires and prevents the bunny from burning anything else.

Later, SpongeBob tries to have the bunny live in a cage, but he does not want to live in it and hides underneath the wallpaper of the walls. Afterwards, SpongeBob finds Patrick in his couch and asks him to get the bunny out, but he gets stuck in the wallpaper. SpongeBob decides to get a girl bunny from the store for the bunny to fall in love with, and this succeeds.

When the two sea bunnies go into the laundry basket, they start to multiply. SpongeBob and Patrick chase the bunnies until they end up reaching Squidward's house. The house gets completely flooded by bunnies, until the house itself gets destroyed and the bunnies form a look-alike house out of themselves. The episode ends with Squidward losing his sanity and turning into a bunny, while the animal control officer tries to capture him.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on July 4, 2017.[2]
