TV Bunny

Bunny And The Bull is to receive its free-to-air television premiere next week.

The 2009 film directed by Paul King tells the story of obsessive compulsive Steven Turnbull, who has not left the house since returning from a disastrous road trip with his friend Bunny the previous year.  Through a series of personal belongings and collections, Steven relives his misadventures and has to come to terms with his lot in life.

Starring Edward Hogg, Simon Farnaby and Veronica Echegui, King’s directorial film debut is scored by The Ralfe Band and features cameo appearances by Julian Barratt, Noel Fielding, Richard Ayoade and Rich Fulcher!  Whilst, as our review showcased, it is not to be missed by Boosh fans, it’s fair to say that even unbiased film fanatics ranted and raved about the film upon its release, and it is set to be a cult favourite for years to come.

If you haven’t bought it on dvd or blu-ray yet from The Velvet Onion Amazon Store – and why not? – then you can catch it on Film4 next Thursday, 17th March at 9pm.  The film may be repeated several times after this, so check your listings!

Editors note: thanks to Emma Smith for bringing this one to our attention!

    I live in Canada. You know, part of the commonwealth, largest country in the world, full of arctic tundra and polar bears. Yes, the place shunned by the BBC and denied access to any decent television due to copyright restrictions, or some such nonsense. Please, for the love of god, stop telling me things are “not available” in my area. Wondering if this film ever going to be released in NTSC? Please add it to the list of other DVD’s we can’t get – Future Sailors, Boosh Live.

      You should definitely look into getting a region-free DVD player! Then you can watch all these lovely lovely DVD’s. No more problems, just hours of fun! x

        Unfortunately our North American televisions aren’t going to cooperate. They don’t convert to PAL, so even with the region free player, we still get nothing. I’m just going to have to move to the UK.

        That sucks! How about if you play it on your computer? :)

      There ARE ways to get American tvs to understand a PAL signal. I know lots of people in North America who import British dvds without any problems. Our very own California-based Velveteer Trixie is one such person!

    Has this come to US format? And if it hasn’t, do you know when it might (if it ever will)? I’ve wanted to see this so badly since forever. Everywhere on Amazon, though, it says that it’s in region 2 format.

      A region-free DVD player is your solution! ;)
