Bugs Bunny- a cartoon legend
The Bugs Bunny character is one of the most recognized image in the world. His famous slogan "..eeh, what's up, doc?" has been uttered around the world.
The "Fresh Hare" episode was banned from television for almost 30 years because it was considered too racey for the time.
Bugs Bunny's nemisis, Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck and Tweedy Bird are also a part of this cartoon series.
According to his biography, Bugs Bunny was "born" in 1940 in Brooklyn, New York.
Bugs Bunny was the product of many fathers: Ben "Bugs" Hardaway (who created a prototypical version of the character called Happy Rabbit in 1938's "Porky's Hare Hunt"), Bob Clampett, Tex Avery (who developed Bugs' definitive personality in 1940), Robert McKimson (created the definitive Bugs Bunny character design), Chuck Jones, and Friz Freleng (from Wikipedia).
According to Mel Blanc, his original voice actor, his accent is an equal blend of someone from the Bronx (New York) and someone from Brooklyn, New York.
In the fall of 1960, The Bugs Bunny Show, a television program which packaged many of the post-1948 Warners shorts with newly animated wraparounds, debuted on ABC. The show was originally aired in prime-time, and after two seasons it was moved to reruns on Saturday mornings.
The Bugs Bunny Show changed formats frequently, but it remained on network television for 40 full years.
When Mel Blanc died in 1989, Jeff Bergman, Joe Alaskey and Billy West became the new "voices" to Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes, taking turns doing the voices at various times.
In 2002, TV Guide compiled a list of the 50 greatest cartoon characters of all time as part of the magazine's 50th anniversary. Bugs Bunny was given the honor of number One.
