A lot of the characters have been eliminated and/or changed a great deal: Pipkin is not an adult rabbit, but a kitten. Blackberry underwent a gender bend, and was turned into a doe. The doe Hyzenthlay is assumed to appear in the series as Primrose (no doubt due to the complexity of the original character's name). El-ahrairah's name is pronounced "Ellerah", as El-ahrairah's a little tricky for the kids to get their tongues around.
While the animation is colourful and crisp, the characters look more like dogs than rabbits: the have long, lean bodies, and long legs ht is up with that.
