Comments: True lecture notes, in that there are no details provided (you would have viewed those during the lecture). This lecture was about Jeff's Rodney the Rabbit show, which was apparently a self-contained table/prop that contained all the effects used in a show, and produced a 5' wooden rabbit. The notes do NOT provide details on Rodney the Rabbit.
