Bugs Bunny is an animated rabbit/hare who appears in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of animated films produced by Warner Bros. Cartoons. According to his biography, he was "born" in 1939 in Brooklyn, New York City, New York and the product of many creators: Ben "Bugs" Hardaway (who created a prototypical version of Bugs Bunny known around the Termite Terrace as Bugs' Bunny) Bob Clampett, Tex Avery (who directed A Wild Hare, considered Bugs' formal film debut), Robert McKimson (who created the definitive Bugs Bunny character design), Chuck Jones, and Friz Freleng.

According to Mel Blanc, his original voice actor, his accent is an equal blend of the Bronx and Brooklyn dialects; Tex Avery said, to the contrary, that he had asked Blanc to give him not a New York voice as such, but a voice like that of actor Frank McHugh, who turned up frequently in supporting roles in the thirties and whose voice might be described as New York Irish.[1] Bugs Bunny is one of the most popular and recognizable cartoon characters in the world.

History

Early influences

A number of animation historians believe Bugs Bunny to have been influenced by an earlier Disney character called Max Hare. Max, designed by Charlie Thorson, first appeared in the Silly Symphony The Tortoise and the Hare, directed by Wilfred Jackson. Tex Avery, one of Bug's creators, did admit to have copied Bug's design from Max, although Avery's design of Bugs was less cute and innocent looking than Thorson's design of Max, so that Bug's appearance would fit better with his sarcastic demeanor.[4] Avery has been quoted as saying: "I practically stole it. It’s a wonder I wasn’t sued. The construction was almost identical."[1] In fact, it was the drawing by Bugs Hardaway in 1938 that was chosen from among others as the direction for the character's personality.[5] This drawing came to be known around the "Termite Terrace" as Bugs' Bunny, when the possessive apostrophe was eventually dropped, the name stuck.[6] Bugs himself would eventually appear in three variations on The Tortoise and the Hare. Charles Gustav Thorson (born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on 29th August 1890; died in Vancouver, British Columbia on 7th August 1966), birth name Karl Gustaf Stefanson, was a political cartoonist, character designer, childrens book author and illustrator of icelandic decent. ...

Cecil Turtle is an animated cartoon character in the Warner Bros. ...


Bugs eventually evolved a personality of detachment, often quipping no matter how immediate the danger he was in was. The way Bugs used his carrot is also similar to the way Groucho Marx used his cigar. One of Bugs' most popular catch-phrases, "Of course you realize (or 'know'), this means war!" was originally said by Groucho (and other cast members) in films such as Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera.[7] Groucho redirects here. ...

Development

Prototype Bugs Bunny made his debut in Porky's Hare Hunt (1938)
Prototype Bugs Bunny made his debut in Porky's Hare Hunt (1938)

The prototype Bugs Bunny first appeared in the cartoon short Porky's Hare Hunt, released on April 30, 1938. The short was co-directed by Cal Dalton and Ben Hardaway. The cartoon had an almost identical theme to a 1937 cartoon, Porky's Duck Hunt, directed by Tex Avery and which introduced Daffy Duck. Following the general plot of this earlier film, the short cast Porky Pig as a hunter against an equally nutty prey more interested in driving his hunter insane than running away. But instead of a black duck, his current prey was a tiny, white rabbit. This character introduces himself with the expression "Jiggers, fellers," and Mel Blanc gave the rabbit a voice and laugh that he would later use to voice Woody Woodpecker. In this cartoon, he also reflected a famous Groucho Marx line that Bugs would use many times (from the movie Duck Soup): "Of course, you know, this means war!"

The second appearance was in 1939's Prest-O Change-O, directed by Chuck Jones, where he serves as the pet rabbit of Sham-Fu the Magician, an unseen character.

His third appearance was in another 1939 cartoon, Hare-um Scare-um, directed by Dalton and Hardaway. Charlie Thorson, the animator of this short, was the first to give a name to the character. He had written "Bugs's Bunny" on Bugs Hardaway's model sheet of the character, meaning he considered the drawing of the rabbit to be Hardaway's property.[1][6] This short was also the first where he was depicted as a gray bunny instead of a white one. The short is notable as featuring the rabbit's first singing role and also the first time he dresses in drag to seduce his antagonist. Following this short he was given the name "Bugs" by the Termite Terrace animators in honor of Ben "Bugs" Hardaway. The rabbit lays a trap for the hunter. ...

In Jones' Elmer's Candid Camera the rabbit encountered Elmer Fudd.

Bugs emerges

Bugs Bunny in All This and Rabbit Stew (1941)
Bugs Bunny in All This and Rabbit Stew (1941)

Bugs Bunny's first official appearance was in A Wild Hare, directed by Tex Avery and released on July 27,1940. It was in this cartoon that he first emerged from his rabbit hole to ask Elmer Fudd, now a hunter, "What's up, Doc?" It was also the first meeting of the two characters in their fully developed forms. It is considered the first fully developed appearance of the character. Animation historian Joe Adamson counts A Wild Hare as the first "official" Bugs Bunny short.[9] It is also the first cartoon where Mel Blanc uses the version of Bugs' voice that would become the standard. Bugs' second appearance in Chuck Jones' Elmer's Pet Rabbit finally introduced the audience to the name Bugs Bunny, which up till then was only used among the Termite Terrace employees. However, the rabbit here is absolutely identical to the one in Jones' earlier Elmer's Candid Camera, both visually and vocally. It was also the first short where he received billing under his now-famous name, but the card, "with Bugs Bunny," was just slapped on the end of the completed short's opening titles when A Wild Hare proved an unexpected success. He would soon become the most prominent of the Looney Tunes characters as his calm, flippant insouciance endeared him to American audiences during and after World War II.

Bugs would appear in five more shorts during 1941: Tortoise Beats Hare, directed by Tex Avery and featuring the first appearance of Cecil Turtle; Hiawatha's Rabbit Hunt, the first Bugs Bunny short to be directed by Friz Freleng; All This and Rabbit Stew, directed by Avery and featuring a young African-American hunter as Bugs' antagonist; The Heckling Hare, the final Bugs short Avery worked on before being fired and leaving for MGM; and Wabbit Twouble, the first Bugs short directed by Robert Clampett.

Bugs Bunny in the censored scene from Fresh Hare (1942)

By 1942, Bugs had become the number one star of the Merrie Melodies series, which had originally been intended only for one-shot characters in shorts. Bugs' 1942 shorts included Friz Freleng's The Wabbit Who Came to Supper, Robert Clampett's The Wacky Wabbit, and Clampett's Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid (which introduced Beaky Buzzard). Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid also marks a slight redesign of Bugs, making his front teeth less prominent and his head rounder. The man responsible for this redesign was Robert McKimson, at the time working as an animator under Robert Clampett. The redesign at first was only used in the shorts created by Clampett's production team but in time it would be adopted by the other directors: It was mainly used in the Friz Freleng unit and, starting in 1949, Robert McKimson's as well; Jones would come up with his own slight modification, and the voice as well would vary mildly between the units.[1] Image File history File links Fresh_Hare. ...

Bugs Bunny and a gremlin in Falling Hare (1943)

Bugs Bunny was popular during the World War II years because of his bombastic attitude, and began receiving special star billing in his cartoons by 1943. Like Disney and Famous Studios had been doing, Warners put Bugs in opposition to the period's biggest enemies: Adolf Hitler, Hermann Goering, and the Japanese. The 1944 short Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips, features Bugs at odds with a group of Japanese soldiers. This cartoon has since been pulled from distribution due to its extreme racial stereotypes.

The post-war era

Since then, Bugs has appeared in numerous cartoon shorts in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series, making his last appearance in the theatrical cartoons in 1964 with False Hare.

Three of Chuck Jones' Bugs Bunny shorts--Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning, and Duck, Rabbit, Duck!--- comprise what is often referred to as the "Duck Season/Rabbit Season" trilogy, and are considered among the director's best works. Jones' 1957 classic, What's Opera, Doc?, features Bugs and Elmer parodying Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen, and has been deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. It was the first cartoon short to have achieved this honor. It is also remembered for Elmer's unique take on "Ride of the Valkyries:" "Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit...!"

Bugs appeared in the 1957 short Show Biz Bugs with Daffy Duck, and it features a controversial finish in which Daffy Duck, in an attempt to wow the (partisan) audience, did a dangerous magical act in which he swallowed TNT, uranium-238, gunpowder, drank gasoline, and swallowed a match.

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 format and exact title frequently (the packaging was completely different, with each short simply presented on its own, title and all, though some clips from the new bridging material was used as filler), but it remained on network television for 40 full years. In 1962 Mattel Inc. Toymakers produced a Talking Bugs Bunny doll. This was one of the talking toys Mattel was famous for in the 1960's and '70s. With the pull of the "Chatty Ring" Bugs Bunny could say one of 11 different phrases all in his cartoon voice provided by Mel Blanc. Bugs was an off-shoot of Mattel's highly successful Chatty Cathy doll for whom the talking mechanism had been invented. The 1962 Bugs Bunny was a large 26 1/2 inches tall and distinguished by having molded vinyl hands, one of which was holding a carrot. In 1965 the toy was shortened to 24 inches and had furry paws, one had a vinyl carrot glued to it. All versions said the same phrases such as, "Ahh what's up doc?" or "Hey'a take me with you". Bugs Bunny was one of the most popular talking toys Mattel made, and remained part of their toy line for nearly 20 years.***For more information on all the Mattel talking dolls and toys read, "Chatty Cathy and her Talking Friends" by Schiffer Publishing. schifferbooks.com *** Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck performing The Bugs Bunny Show theme song, The Bugs Bunny Overture (This is It!).

Bugs has also made appearances in animated specials for network television mostly composed of classic cartoons with bridging material added, including How Bugs Bunny Won the West, and The Bugs Bunny Mystery Special. 1980's Bugs Bunny's Busting Out All Over, however, contained no vintage clips and featured the first new Bugs Bunny cartoons in 16 years. It opened with "Portrait Of The Artist As a Young Bunny", which features a flashback of Bugs as a child thwarting a young Elmer Fudd, while its third and closing short was "Spaced Out Bunny", with Bugs being kidnapped by Marvin the Martian to be a playmate for Hugo, an Abominable Snowman-like character (a new Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner short filled out the half hour). Also, there have been various compilation films made , including the independently produced Bugs Bunny: Superstar (utilizing the vintage shorts then owned by United Artists), while Warner Bros. assembled The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie, The Looney Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie, Daffy Duck's Fantastic Island, Bugs Bunny's 3rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales and Daffy Duck's Quackbusters.

Bugs has had several comic book series over the years. Western Publishing had the license for all the Warner Brothers cartoons, and produced Bugs Bunny comics first for Dell Comics, then later for their own Gold Key Comics. Dell published 58 issues, and several specials from 1952 to 1962. Gold Key continued for another 133 issues. DC Comics, the sister/subsidiary company of Warner Bros., has been publishing several comics titles since 1994 that Bugs has appeared in.

In the 1988 animated/live action movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Bugs is shown as one of the inhabitants of Toon Town. However, since the movie was being made by Disney, Warner Brothers would only allow the use of their biggest toon star if he got an equal amount of screen time as Disney's biggest star, Mickey Mouse. Because of this, both characters are always together in frame when on the screen. They appear in a scene where they are skydiving while Eddie has no parachute, so Bugs offers him a "spare" which turns out to be a spare tire. They appear in the end as well, along with all the other toons.

Rabbit or hare?

The animators throughout Bugs' history have treated the terms rabbit and hare as synonymous. Taxonomically they are not synonymous, being somewhat similar but observably different types of lagomorphs. Hares have much longer ears than do rabbits, so Bugs might seem to be of the hare family, and many more of the cartoon titles include the word "hare" rather than "rabbit". It is probably easier to make a pun from "hare" than from "rabbit". Within the cartoons, although the term "hare" comes up sometimes (for example, Bugs drinking "hare tonic" to "stop falling hare"), Bugs as well as his antagonists most often refer to the bunny as a "rabbit". The word "bunny" is of no help in answering this question, as it is also a synonym for either hares or rabbits. Families Leporidae Ochotonidae Prolagidae (extinct) The Lagomorphs, order Lagomorpha, are an order of mammals of which there are two families, Leporidae (hares and rabbits), and Ochotonidae (pikas). ... // Bunny is usually a term used to describe a rabbit or hare. ...


Personality and catchphrases

Bugs is noted for his feuds with Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Marvin the Martian, Beaky Buzzard, Daffy Duck, Witch Hazel, Rocky and Mugsy, Wile E. Coyote and a host of others. Bugs is the traditional winner of these conflicts, a plot pattern which recurs in Looney Toons films directed by Chuck Jones. Concerned that viewers would lose sympathy for an invariably triumphant protagonist, Jones had the antagonist characters repeatedly attempt to bully, cheat or threaten Bugs. When offended by the antagonism, Bugs' catchline was "Of course you realize, dis means war!" (this line was taken from Groucho Marx)[7] Other directors, such as Friz Freleng, characterized Bugs as altruistic. When Bugs meets other successful characters, (such as Cecil Turtle in Tortoise Beats Hare, or, in World War II, the Gremlin of Falling Hare) his overconfidence becomes a disadvantage. Elmer J.

Bugs Bunny's nonchalant carrot-chewing standing position, as explained by Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, and Bob Clampett, originated from a scene in the film It Happened One Night, in which Clark Gable's character leans against a fence, eating carrots rapidly and talking with his mouth full to Claudette Colbert's character. This scene was well-known while the film was popular, and viewers at the time likely recognized Bugs Bunny's behavior as satire.[12] Chuck Jones in 1976 Charles Martin Chuck Jones (September 21, 1912 – February 22, 2002) was an American animator, cartoon artist, screenwriter, producer, and director of animated films, most memorably of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts for the Warner Bros. ...

The carrot-chewing scenes are generally followed by Bugs Bunny's most well-known catchphrase, "What's up, Doc?". The phrase was written by director Tex Avery for his first Bugs Bunny short, 1940's A Wild Hare. Avery explained later that it was a common expression in Texas, where he was from, and that he did not think much of the phrase. When the short was first screened in theaters, the "What's up, Doc?" scene received a tremendously positive audience reaction.[13] As a result, the scene became a recurring element in subsequent films and cartoons. However, the phrase is not beyond editing, the most notable of which being whenever Bugs greets Daffy: "What's up, Duck?"

Bugs says "And That's The End", from the closing title of the 1945 Looney Tunes short Hare Tonic and the 1946 short Baseball Bugs.

Several Chuck Jones shorts in the late 1940s and 1950s depict Bugs travelling via cross-country (and, in some cases, intercontinental) tunnel-digging, ending up in places as varied as Mexico (Bully For Bugs, 1953), the Himalayas (The Abominable Snow Rabbit, 1960) and Antarctica (Frigid Hare, 1949) all because he "should'a taken that left toin at Albukoikee." He first utters that phrase in Herr Meets Hare (1945), when he emerges in the Black Forest, a cartoon seldom seen today due to its blatantly topical subject matter. When Goering says to Bugs, "There is no Las Vegas in 'Chermany'" and takes a potshot at Bugs, Bugs dives into his hole and says, "Joimany! Yipe!", as Bugs realizes he's behind enemy lines. The confused response to his "left toin" comment also followed a pattern. For example, when he tunnels into Scotland in 1948's My Bunny Lies Over The Sea, while thinking he's heading for the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, California, it provides another chance for an ethnic stereotype: "Therrre's no La Brrrea Tarrr Pits in Scotland!" (to which Bugs responds, "Uh...what's up, Mac-doc?"). A couple of late-1950s shorts of this ilk also featured Daffy Duck travelling with Bugs. Image File history File links Bugs-ending. ...

Bugs Bunny has some similarities to figures from mythology and folklore, such as Br'er Rabbit, Nanabozho, or Anansi, and might be seen as a modern trickster (for example, he repeatedly uses cross-dressing mischievously). Unlike most cartoon characters, however, Bugs Bunny is rarely defeated in his own games of trickery. One exception to this is in the short Hare Brush in which Elmer Fudd ultimately carries the day at the end—however critics note that in this short Elmer had become Bugs Bunny and Bugs had become Elmer, and it is only by becoming Bugs that Elmer can win.

Looney Tunes - Stars Of The Show - Bugs Bunny (652 words)
Bugs Bunny is arguably the most popular and recognizable cartoon character of all time.
And in the classic Bewitched Bunny, Bugs rescues the fairy tale characters Hansel and Gretel from Witch Hazel's clutches, and narrowly escapes being cooked as dinner himself.
In Bully for Bugs, which originated with studio supervisor Edward Selzer's proclamation that bullfights aren't funny, Bugs accidentally tunnels into an arena on his way to a carrot festival and takes on an angry (and very unhospitable) bull.
Bugs Bunny - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2568 words)
Bugs Bunny is a fictional street-smart gray rabbit that appears in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons, and is one of the most recognizable characters, real or imaginary, in the world.
Bugs Bunny has some similarities to figures from mythology and folklore, such as Brer Rabbit or Anansi, and might be seen as sort of modern trickster.
Bugs Bunny was popular during the World War II years because of his bombastic attitude, and began receiving special star billing in his cartoons by 1943.
