Schnuffel (German pronunciation: [ˈʃnʊfəl]; English: Snuggle, French: Lapin Câlin) is an animated cartoon rabbit made at the end of 2007 by the German media company Jamba! for the marketing of one of its ringtones. The ringtone was turned into a song by Sebastian Nussbaum and Andreas Wendorf and recorded under the title Kuschel Song ("cuddling song").[1] The single was released in February 2008 and the ringtone rabbit made it immediately to the top of the German and European charts.[2] After the song went to the top of the Austrian charts and to number 2 in Switzerland, plans were made to release the song internationally. Translations in 10 languages and six albums have been released.

Schnuffel was introduced into the US market in January 2010. The Schnuffel ringtone commercial currently airs on MTV, MTV2, Comedy Central, Teen Nick and ABC Family.

Recently, Schnuffel has taken a turn to audio books, the most recent being die Kleine Schneefee, released on September 24, 2010.[3]
