Happy birthday Bugs!

image from A Wild Hare

A big "Happy Birthday" today to Bugs Bunny! It was on this date in 1940 that Warner Brothers released A Wild Hare, the first cartoon starring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. The first lines of each character have become timeless...

Elmer Fudd: Be vewy, vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits.
Bugs Bunny: Eh, what's up Doc?

The great Tex Avery directed A Wild Hare, with music by Carl Stalling and the voice of Bugs provided by Mel Blanc. It was an immediate hit, earning an Academy Award nomination.

I wouldn't want to live in a world without Bugs Bunny.
