General Trivia

  • He can sometimes be mischievous and bratty, as seen in From A to Zoo and Water You Wading For.
  • Most of the time, Cuddles keeps his bunny slippers on, but in the episodes Happy Trails Pt. 1 and Home Is Where the Hurt Is, Cuddles' slippers are seen off of his feet after his deaths.
