That's right. That sly, mischievous, anthropomorphic rabbit who ran afoul of the dimwitted Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam, maintained a friendly (?) rivalry with Daffy Duck debuted 77 years ago today in the animated short "A Wild Hare." His first line to the gun-toting Fudd remains iconic in the American lexicon: "Eh, what's up, doc?"
Whenever I meet children unfamiliar with Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig or the other characters in Looney Tunes pantheon, I think its so sad. Children can be deprived today with their fancy iPads, video streaming and on-demand television. Take some time to introduce Bugs and the gang to a child in your life. They will love you for it.
Relive some of the magic here.
That's All Folks,
