Can I use the phrase "Energizer Bunny?"

A guy wants a girl to do him a favor - repeatedly - and no, it's not sexual. She tells him that she refuses to be his Energizer Bunny.

Can I say that? "Buffy" referred to their crew as "The Scooby Gang" with no problems that I'm aware of.

Any opinions?

Not sure. But I think that "Scooby" and "Buffy" are both Warner Bros. properties and unlikely to sue each other.

Just mentioning it probably won't cause too much trouble. If you have make shirts made up and it becomes the "Energizer Bunny Show," then you would probably have a problem.... or a sponsor.

But I'm not much of a law talker.

I don't see why not; you are only using it in conversation and not making any claims of ownership or using the character's image to make money. If the character was ordering a drink and asked of a Coke you wouldn't need permission from the Coca-Cola Company.

I think they could make a stink but why would they. It is in passing, you are not using it all the time like a main character and it is rather complimentary to the product when ya think about it.

I never understand corporations when they get their panties in a twist about such things, anyway. It shows their marketing is succesful and they have penetrated and permeated our pop culture. Isn't that what they want?

How mickey mouse can one get?;)

It's pronounced Energizer....Energizer. ;)

Sorry, couldn't resist.
