Well, he was from the Chicago area. In fact, not too far from my hometown. I remember every time we drove by his home, my Mom would say, "There's where Morris lives."

Did you ever wonder how your pet could get on TV?

According to,

"This year, Cadbury is revamping the classic commercial a bit and holding auditions for new a star and that star could be your pet! From dogs and cats to pigs and everything in between, Cadbury will be holding tryouts from Feb. 20 through March 6 for its next “bunny.”

If you want to apply for your animal, take a picture of them wearing bunny ears along with an essay 50 words or less on why they should be chosen. Then submit it the Cadbury website right HERE.

Then 20 semi-finalists will be asked to shoot a video.

Winner will get $5000 for being in this year's commercial.

Sounds like a great opportunity for your pet to break into show business.
