Lola Bunny first made her iconic appearance in the original Space Jam film in 1996. She was depicted as Bugs Bunny’s love interest. Lola Bunny became so popular after the release of the original film that the character eventually made it into multiple media platforms. One of them is famously the Looney Tunes show that aired from 2011 till 2014.

Lola also appeared in other Looney Tunes related shows such as The New Looney Tunes Show, Loonatics Unleashed, Baby Looney Tunes, and the upcoming Bugs Bunny Builders. With Zendaya now voicing Lola in Space Jam: A New Legacy she will be a part of the long line of actors who voiced Lola. Those voice actresses, besides Soucie, are Jessica DiCicco, Britt McKillip, Rachel Ramras, and Carla Delaney. The Lola Bunny character is defined by her confidence and on-court talent and those elements have contributed to her becoming a fan favorite.
