Watership downer

There is a small prize to anyone who can explain to me why I find these two short clips from 'The Mutations' (1974) so incredibly funny. Is it the way Pleasence lovingly caresses the rabbits? Is it Brad Harris' incredulous face? Or am I simply in need of a nice long rest and some Diazepam?

I think it is the cuddly rabbits nestling in his arms. Cuteness meets horror.

Perhaps it's the "rabbit in peril" sound effect?

I heard an owl grab a rabbit once while drinking a beer by a camp fire. The shriek of the owl, and then screaming its bloody head off caused me to jump a few inches out of my seat.
