Happy Birthday to the Unstoppable Energizer Bunny {Giveaway!}

Energizer logo
While there are various logos and icons that we recognize and associate with a particular brand or product, there are some that have taken on even more meaning and importance.

After all, even though we see a talking gecko and know he is selling car insurance, he doesn't really hold any significance in our lives. The Energizer Bunny, on the other hand, embodies more.

This rock star pink rabbit has drummed his way into our hearts and homes and has been the symbol of more than just excellent batteries, he represents power and determination and the will to never give up. In short, the Energizer Bunny has inspired and enthralled us with his tenacious spirit and boundless energy... but did you know that he has been doing it for 25 years?!

Energizer Bunny birthday

That's right, it has been 25 years since America's favorite unstoppable icon, the Energizer Bunny, drummed his way into our lives in a 1989 commercial series aimed at poking fun at the competition.

Since that time, comparisons have been made between the go-go-go bunny and politicians, celebrities, professional athletes and energetic Americans so much so that, in 2006, the Oxford English Dictionary added Energizer Bunny to its lexicon with the definition: A persistent or indefatigable person or phenomenon.

Pretty cool, right?

Now that the Energizer Bunny has turned 25, it is clear that age has not slowed him down one bit. Rather, he is a part of even more amazing causes, such as a one-of-a kind global nighttime running series to help provide solar power to people around the world who do not have access to safe and affordable electricity and helping to remind millions of people to change their smoke alarm batteries each fall as part of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program.

So how can we get in on the fun of celebrating the Energizer Bunny's birthday? Two ways:

First, by collecting free money!

Bunny Bucks

Right now when you purchase two specially marked packages of Energizer MAX or Energizer Advanced Lithium batteries, they are marked with Bunny Birthday Bucks that can be redeemed online at Energizer.com/bunny for a $4 check or Paypal payment.

It's easy! Simply peel off the codes from your AA or AAA batteries, head over to the website and in about a minute you'll be on your way to receiving your money. Yes, please!

Second, fans can join in the celebration on Facebook as well by stopping by to wish the Energizer Bunny a Happy Birthday on his Facebook wall and entering the Energizer Bunny Birthday Sweepstakes.

On now through December 5th, consumers can enter for a chance to win one of 25 birthday prize packages, worth approximately $75, filled with Energizer batteries and portable lighting solutions, as well as a $25 Visa gift card!

Energizer sweepstakes

With the holidays just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start stocking up on batteries for all of those holiday gifts that will be given, so head to your local store to pick up a few packs today (and then redeem your Bunny Bucks)! Also be sure to stay tuned to Energizer.com and the Energizer Bunny on Facebook, as this beloved icon will also be handing party favors in the way of coupons throughout the year.

Plus, thanks to this energetic bunny's generosity, one person will be prepared to power a few gifts as well as redeem some codes for free cash, because...

One lucky person will win (2) specially marked packages of Energizer MAX batteries (winner's choice of AA or AAA) with Bunny Bucks codes!

scottsgal said...

the energizer bunny has to be one of the iconic marketing successes in advertising - can't believe he's 25

helen may said...

Only 25? Seems like I've been seeing the bunny longer than that!

Shemp DeYoung said...

I can't believe it's taken 25 years for me to learn that the Bunny started out as a parody of a different bunny.

stowelljg said...

It seams like only last year! The bunny has aged well and is still in the pink!

Jackie said...

I can't believe it's been 25 years! I've enjoyed watching the bunny in different commercials over the years.

tawndam said...

...I thought he was a cute back when they started... but I'm honestly kinda surprised every time I see that they still follow the bunny...

Heather McDougle said...

It makes me feel old. I didn't realize I was older than him.

Stevie said...

I remember all the old commercials w/ the Energizer bunny going across the screen. I actually thought he was older - he seems to have been around since a lot longer

kmcgrew213 said...

the commercials were cute! wonder why they dont do them anymore? i figured they'd want to do them around christmas so people buy their batteries for the many toys that are bought.

Debra said...

i really didn't realize it till now

Sandra Davis said...

He sure doesnt seem like he should be 25. I guess with all his going and going, he hasnt had time to age lol

Dorothy Teel said...

He doesn't look that old, he is still a young charge when he catches up with me, (he can retire and quite running around and around.) Seriously We have always trusted the Everready bunny and the batteries.

Cole said...

I always liked the bunny. He's cute. I hope to see him in another 25

Georgette C said...

I love the commercials where the Energizer bunny runs over people. They make you laugh and keep the product first and foremost in your mind. I have tried generic batteries throughout the years and Energizer is always the best.

mecarolks said...

i didn't realize he was born during my lifetime

Jen F said...

25 years is a long time! I always remember using Energizer batteries as a kid!

The Energizer bunny was a parody of the Duracell bunny.

CarrieAnn13 said...

Happy Birthday Bunny! And what a successful advertising campaign by energizer for it to be around so long

CindyWindy2003 said...

I can't believe it, I remember when the commercials started up about it keeps going and going, etc.

Lesley said...

The Energizer Bunny is only a few years younger than me. I never would have guessed that. I thought he was a newer tradition!

~The Bargain Babe from *Zucchini Summer Blog* said...

I never really thought about how old the bunny was, but I grew up with seeing him on tv commercials, so I guess the age seems about right!

Kathleen said...

I was surprised that it's only been 25 years.

Michele P. said...

I think it's great! I've been using them for years for my kids toys, and now my grandkids toys, and they have never let me down... Happy Birthday Energizer Bunny :)

jlee said...

25 years already! Time flies when you're having fun!

Frugal Follies said...

I remember when they had fake commercials for some other pretend product and then the Energizer bunny would come in and interrupt the commercial. Do you remember those? Happy birthday to the Energizer bunny!

Tamar said...

He can be my little brother.

Laura Fugate said...

Ah, they grow up so fast...

kathyluman said...

Only 25. I thought he has been around a lot longer then that. But I'm sure he will just keep going :)

Kelley Chapman said...

I would have thought they were older than 25. I'm sure they'll be around for 25 more.

Treesa said...

It's weird that they are only 3 1/2 years younger than me.

Tammy Woodall said...

I've been watching that Energizer Bunny keep going and going and going for years. However, I did not not that the Bunny had been "going" so long. Wow, 25 years - time flies.

Nikki Strong said...

It is encouraging to see companies thriving in this economy... It is going and going and going...

Diane Cooper said...

Is that all? He is just a baby! Although, it seems like he has been around forever.

Kim Drolet said...

I LOVE THE BUNNY!!!! I still have an old Christmas tree ornament of him. He is as famous as the Pillsbury dough boy.

Carolyn Daley said...

bkittie said...

The bunny is older than my cat. She'll turn 21 in January!

Urd-chan said...

I remember when they first started using the "bunny" in their advertising. It shows that they picked a great marketing strategy and I'm sure the Energizer Bunny will be going and going for many more years.

Sarah said...

I remember when the Energizer Bunny was first introduced and thinking those commercials were so funny - there's no way it's been twenty-five years already!

Linda said...

That's great....I think that the quality of their products has contributed to that for sure.

Shelley said...

i hope the Energizer bunny keeps going and going for 25 more years! They make great products.

PaulineMilner said...

For a 25 year old that just keeps going and going and going, he should be in impeccable shape! Energizer certainly have gotten a lot of mileage out of using the Energizer Bunny as their mascot. Thank you for the super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging.

Candace Barrow said...

We are almost the same age :)

Karen F said...

How time flies! I remember the commercials where he just keeps going and going and going.

They are the best, I'm sure they will have 25+ more!

That's awesome; I've always thought they had a great product. I remember those drumming bunny commercials from years back; I like that they are still using that image.

dfraley3 said...

I am surprised -- I thought he was older than that! I remember ordering the free stuffed Energizer Bunny with his Drum for both my kids when you sent in a certain number of backcards from Energizer!

The Energizer Bunny was an advertising success, I remember before he was advertising Everready was kind of dormant. He sure sells a lot of batteries.

Brian E. said...

Thanks for the giveaway…that Bunny certainly has a lost of energy to spare.
