Rapid T. Rabbit and Friends is an independently produced puppet show that has been cablecast weekly on cable TV in New York City since February 21, 1983.[1] The show ran on public-access television cable TV channels on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network, Queens Public TV and aired online every Sunday afternoon over Pawpet Broadcasting Network.

The show is based in Rapid's home of New York City, and follows him and his friends both in town and around the country. In recent years the show has expanded to include Rapid as a mascot. Throughout the years, he has attended many events such as the Ocean City, New Jersey Doo-Dah Parade, the Long Island Ducks Mascot Day, 10 Cheesevention events for Chuck E. Cheese's and ShowBiz Pizza fans(from 2004 until 2013), and the New York City Easter Parade.

Richard Concepcion, the producer and puppeteer of Rapid T. Rabbit, died on August 1, 2017 in his apartment of natural causes.
