Ha-haa! :) (Okay, so it's not really that funny after being in the
same position myself..)

Now it's ObSonic time:

Maybe Mobius is a duplicated Earth, created during some advanced
physics/mathematical (hence the name) lab experiment gone awry..

Let's see.. The duplicate planet also could've been created
intentionally, but several million years "in the future" to see how
the animals evolved (or to prove theories on the development of
sapience?) The humans that are there could be [descended] from the
survey parties. Ant' and Bunnie's accents then would be the result
of their ancestors learning language from survey party tutors from
the appropriate ethnic group...

There's a "prime directive" of the above survey parties to limit
their influence in technological development..? :)

Mawhinney's Bunnie also has a very child-like face. Ugh, IMHO.
