I asked you all which character looked the best.  Now it's time to find which one looks the worst.

You might want to provide two different answers: one for season 1/2 designs, and another for season 3, due to the numerous differences between the two.  Personally I think Pipkin and Primrose suffered the most from these changes :pipkin2 :primrose As for season 1/2, I'm still thinking about it...

What does everyone think?

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!    :irony
To me it seems that all the characters are great, I do not think that it is necessary this subject ..... However it could say that: Raincloud and Blue Sky.

Pipkin in season 3 by far. He looks dead, okay? A lot of the characters look dead because of the bizarre, soulless eye design they went for, but he gets it the worst. Someone put him out of his misery.

Also in season 3, Primrose and a lot of the female rabbits look like anime bowling pins. It's disturbing.

I never liked Silverweed's design. He looks mangy and starving and sleep-deprived (though, the latter at least has a reason) to me, in any season.

As for season 1 and 2, well, Hannah's design has always kind of irked me, though, I can't entirely place why. She's recognizable as a mouse, definitely, and she usually moves fine. I think it might be the paws, actually. Mice have very distinct, separated finger and toe digits, while Hannah's seem to borrow more from a rabbit's paw. It looks so weird to me.

I think a few of the designs are rather ugly, actually.

Again I will have to look through the characters and get back to this thread!

spartina wasnt very aesthetically pleasing. i honestly forgot she was supposed to be a rabbit - she reminded me of a kangaroo tbh

clover in season three kinda hurt my eyes with her bright colour. who thought that shade would look good?

as stated before, raincloud is also sort of ugly

Blackavar. Easy. His hairdo looks... wrong. It doesn't help his case that he acts like in idiot in Efrafa.

Ack I had forgotten about most of these character designs!

I found this post funny :hannah4 But you make some valid points.  I hadn't noticed about Hannah and Silverweed, but now that you mention it, I can't unsee it.  Poor Silverweed, never getting enough sleep...

The hamster rabbit is a bit cute, I think.  Although the one in the video...this is probably the worst character design in the entire series.  He doesn't even look like a rabbit.

Blackavar really was a mess in the series.  He wasn't even black!  That's why he was called Blackavar in the book, and in the series he's...brown...

I'll go for the dog rabbit Cockatiel mentioned as the absolute worst.  Among named characters, I'll go with Bluesky or Raincloud (I forgot which one is the fat one and I'm too lazy to check) for season 1/2, and Clover, Pipkin and Primrose for season 3.

It's disturbing how the animators tried to make most female characters look good, but in several cases failed miserably.

I can't view all the different characters at the moment... will have to come back to this again.

One I know I've never liked the design of is Cowslip. Looks creepy. Part of the point, I'm sure. But still. :0

Also many character redesigns for series three! :p

I think some non-rabbit characters are not so much ugly but really uninspired designs (including samey colours!), like the weasel and fox. Just how long the dog's whiskers are bothered me, too. xp
