Rapid T. Rabbit on The Daily Show

September 21, 1999 show[edit]

On this date, The Daily Show (with host Jon Stewart,) ran a segment called A Hare Piece. This segment had an interview with furry artist Richard James Concepcion, creator of Rapid T. Rabbit (leading character in the Rapid T. Rabbit and Friends cable television show, as well as being Concepcion's fursona) about his show [1].
