About

Tuzki (Chinese: 兔斯基; Pinyin: Tùsījī) is a popular rabbit character used in emoticons, similar to Onion Head and Yoyo & Cici. Tuzki is very popular among Chinese internet users on forums, Tencent QQ and MSN messenger and its popularity has led to fanclubs, postcards, posters, t-shirts, books, games, cards, and more. The character can also be used with popular Chinese catchphrases by superimposing text onto Tuzki emoticons.

Origin

Interview with the Creator:



Tuzki was created by Chinese netizen Wang Momo in 2006. Supposedly, she was nicknamed “rabbit” in her childhood and learned how to paint, drawing rabbits in her free time. The earliest working image of Tuzki on her blog that can be found was posted on September 6, 2006.



On November 7, 2006, she posted Tuzki on her blog, with this GIF being the original:


Later, she also created a small series of Tuzki videos for publicity:

In December of 2007, Motorola bought the rights to Tuzki and used the character to promote the new Motorola Q9h. This led to another spike in Tuzki’s popularity.

Genetically Modified (GM) Food Awareness

Greenpeace is an environmental organization dedicated to ensuring “the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity.” The organization marks genetically modified as red, and “normal food” as green.

In mid 2008, Greenpeace used Tuzki to explain the color system.
