Harvey the Rabbit.

Harvey The Giant Rabbit
Harvey the Rabbit is an old "Texaco Big Friend" statue with a rabbit's head. Thus disguised, it survived the corporate statue purges of the 1960s. It's an offshoot of the Muffler Men. Report... [04/11/2010]

Harvey the Rabbit Man.

Harvey the Rabbit

I remember when the statue went was a Texaco serviceman, not a muffler guy. He was complete with a Texaco Star dress military-style hat and Texaco service uniform colors.

Lots of us who didn't know Mr. Harvey at the time were surprised to see the rabbit head replace the Texaco noggin, but we made the connection between the Broadway play "Harvey" and the name of the business.

Mr. Harvey has often used the statue in constructive and civic-minded ways.

Harvey The Giant Humanoid Rabbit

Harvey The Giant Humanoid Rabbit is still standing on the south side of Hwy 8. There's room for a car to pull over in from of Harvey Marine, but difficult to get a "full body" photo from that close. You might get a full shot from the north side of the highway, if you get a break in traffic.

Rabbit-headed "Big Friend"

Harvey Marina giant figure -- Rabbit or Muffler Man? I would be inclined to believe he's a Muffler Man in rabbit's clothes. I haven't been to see him in several years. In my youth, numerous beer-adled hours were whiled away with friends, dreaming up schemes to equip him with an appropriately-sized male member. To my best knowledge, no action was taken by this particular group of people. But we did scrutinize him fairly closely at the time. Not knowing at the time what a Muffler Man was, we speculated that he was originally some kind of "Gas Station Man" because of the uniform-looking outfit he had. The only thing that looked like a rabbit/bunny was his head, which was obviously and amateurishly fabricated...the rest was definitely human in form.
