Hocks Out is a web portal into a world of merchandise, book publishing through Hocks Out Press, social media mini-tales, and photo/video explorations from around the world, including several world heritage sites. Thumperino Superbunny shares regular Twitter sagas of his crime fighting prowess and posts Facebook messages about his travels. Photo and video diaries of the fictional character and the actual therapy rabbit, Thumperino, span the globe from the canals of Venice, the fortified walls of the Brimstone Hill Fortress, the ancient citadel of Edinburgh, and Mount Rushmore National Monument. Hocks Out was originally inspired by the adventures of Thumperino, a real life house rabbit and his special needs companion Veronica. The pair are adopted therapy rabbits, certified by the National Service Animal Registry. They reside in New York where they work to spread the message of the value of pet adoption. A portion of the proceeds from sales of products on Hocks Out are donated to rabbit rescues and reading programs.
