I thought Akbar and Jeff were kind of stupid but the bunny stuff was alright.

Part of a continuous comic strip Life in Hell from Matt Groening, witty and refreshing, I guess if you're a regular The Simpsons' viewer you'd know what I meant. Might start looking for the complete comic strip umm somewhere.

As Groening ended the comic strip in 2012, started in 1977, some cartoonists made a tribute in strip and posters such as

The tribute can be read here: To Hell With You, Matt Groening

What caught me most is Bongo, rebelious rabbit, and then the gay couple Jeff and Akbar'

Haven't read this since I was in college in the late 80's. I remember loving it then, but it has definitely lost it's luster in the last 25 years. "Love In Hell" is definitely worth revisiting, but I think the rest can be skipped..... unless you just want to see the early workings of the mind that brought us "The Simpsons."
