Dandelion was one of the Sandleford Warren survivors. He is a yellow-furred rabbit, hence his name. He is Watership Down's resident storyteller, having collected several stories about El-ahrairah and Lord Frith. He is also rather of a smart mouth. He always makes a joke when someone says something out of the ordinary, and he talks back to everyone. He is good friends with Hawkbit and Blackberry. He is also the fastest runner, next to Blackberry, out of all the other Watership Down Warren rabbits.

In the second book, Tales from Watership Down, Dandelion told the stories following El-ahrairah finding the Black Rabbit of Inle, and going through the warren of the dead. He told the story of El-ahrairah and his friend and right side leader, Rabscuttle's, long journey home from the Warren of the Dead.

In the television series, Dandelion is still described as an accomplished storyteller, is more of a joker and wise guy and provides much of the series' comedy relief. However, he is a very likeable, jolly character easy to make anyone laugh (Except Bigwig). He is also a good friend of Hawkbit.


  • Dandelion's animated TV series' counterpart is considered the slowest rabbit, while his book and animated film counterpart stay true to him being the fastest runner in the book series.
