Of note, the earliest cite in this thread, the picture with the puppy and rabbits, also has lettuce (or at least, some sort of green) in the rabbit coop. That's consistent with "rabbits like vegetables in general", rather than "rabbits like carrots specifically".

And long after Bugs, but the rabbits in Watership Down list both lettuce and carrots as examples of "flayrah", literally "food of princes", which they'll happily eat whenever they get a chance, but are not a routine part of their diet.
