Did Bugs Bunny help the Trix Rabbit finally get some Trix?

In the mid-eighties, Bugs bunny came to the rescue of the Trix rabbit and gave him some much-needed advice on how to finally get those delicious fruity Trix. His solution? Trade on Bugs’ celebrity. What’s weird is how easily it works and it makes me wonder.

Are these kids torturing this poor particular rabbit on purpose? Is it open season for any other bunny to get a bowl? This commercial only offers tantalizing glimpses into the complicated politics of cereals and rabbits.

If you are wondering if he ever gets a bowl? The answer is an unsurprising “no”. Here is the follow-up commercial.
