Shorty is a bunny who is Pete Puma's prey and a friend of Bugs Bunny. He talks quickly in a high, squeaky voice that is somewhat difficult to understand, though Bugs is able to make out what he is saying.
Shorty appeared in Rabbit's Kin. He runs frantically screaming for help and tripped into Bug's hole. He explains to him that a big "snarling beast" is after him and Bugs deduces the beast as Pete Puma and decides to help Shorty. After outsmarting the dimwitted puma several times, Shorty grows fond of the experience.
