'A cartoon in which the masquerade of femininity is threatened by falling in love. "I love you has no usages. Like a child's word it enters into society. It can be sublime, solemn, trivial. It can be erotic, pornographic. It is socially irresponsible. I love you every other night on TV someone says I Love you." (A Lovers' Discourse, Roland Barthes) In fables.. the figure of the fugitive girl in animal disguise stood not for the rejection of sexuality but the condition of it. (...) (The Language of Hair, Marina Warner) The hare is a symbol of incarnation and regeneration. The non conformist, mixture of wisdom and stupidity (...) Hurtling towards the millennium, Hare Girl, like Bugs Bunny the crazy cross-dressing hare, surviving the exigencies and dangers of the cartoon world with verve and ingenuity.'
