Bonkers D. Bobcat is the protagonist of Disney's 1993-95 animated television series Bonkers. Originally featured on Raw Toonage, he is a former star for cartoon shorts at Wackytoon Studios, an overly energetic and hyperactive, out-of-work, and as Toon Bobcat who works in the Toon Division of the Hollywood PD.

Background

Personality

Bonkers mostly has the same personality as Roger Rabbit just as both go crazy in Toontown, AND out of Toontown. Bonkers is not the brightest or the most thinking cop in the station.

Physical appearance

Bonkers' design evolution

The evolution of Bonkers' design.

As suggested by his surname, Bonkers is an anthropomorphic spotted orange bobcat with a red nose. In the Raw Toonage shorts, he was typically dressed in a green sweater. In the Bonkers series, his design is noticeably different between the two different sets of episodes. In the Raw Toonage shorts and the Miranda Wright episodes, Bonkers has large-knobbed ears and a spotted tail with a white tip, he is shown to have blue eyes, and the spots on his fur are colored brown. In the Lucky Piquel episodes, his ears are smaller, his spots and eye pupils are black (though they are shown to be blue again throughout "New Partners on the Block"), and his tail is striped, somewhat resembling Tigger's. In addition, his police uniform is different as well; in the Miranda episodes, Bonkers wears a smaller police cap with a different-looking badge than the one in the Lucky episodes, and most noticeably, the uniform is in two different shades of blue as opposed to the single shade of blue it was colored in the Lucky episodes.

Appearances

Bonkers

Once a big star for a series of cartoons known as "He's Bonkers!" at Wackytoons Studios, Bonkers was a knobby-eared, Toon bobcat who was in love with his leading lady, Fawn Deer. He was almost never without his trusty companion, Jitters A. Dog, and usually facing the threats of his arch-rival, Grumbles the Grizzly. Behind the scenes, his other friends included: Fall-Apart Rabbit (who served as his stunt-double), the Mad Hatter and March Hare (who served as his makeup artists), and his pet dog/horn, Toots.

Sadly, however, Bonkers was fired due to his show being bumped out of first place in ratings. He was then introduced to law enforcement when he unknowingly saved cartoon celebrity Donald Duck from a dangerous park mugger, mostly due to the help of officer Lucky Piquel, and was given full credit for the mugger's capture. For his actions, he was given the Citizen of Valor award by the Chief of Police, Leonard Kanifky. Bonkers, while soaking in the praise, told the chief of his experiences starring in a cop cartoon series which helped in the capture of the mugger. Chief Kanifky believed his story, taking it for granted, thinking that Bonkers would be a benefit to the police force, and asked if the Toon would like a job working for the Hollywood PD, which Bonkers accepted. Bonkers then requested Lucky Piquel as his partner. However, meantime, all of Bonkers' old Toon friends mysteriously began disappearing, being kidnapped and brought into the hands of the evil "Collector". After solving the case, Bonkers' boss, W.W. Wacky, was impressed and offered Bonkers his job back, but Bonkers refused, stating that he wanted to stay with Lucky, and thus, the Toon Division began.

After the rescue and many other strange cases with Bonkers, Lucky moved to Washington, D.C. in order to become an FBI agent. Bonkers later worked alongside the police officers Miranda Wright and Sergeant Grating, still remaining under Chief Leonard Kanifky.

Disney Parks

Bonkers made regular appearances at Disneyland and Walt Disney World between 1993 and 1996, most notably starring in the Disney Afternoon stage show at Mickey's Starland in 1993 through 1996. Bonkers has not been seen in the Disney Parks for many years after the initial airing of his show and the Disney Afternoon and is currently retired.
