Happy Birthday, Bugs!

Today is the 75th  anniversary of the cartoon character Bugs Bunny.

Did you enjoy cartoons as a child?  One of my favorites was Bugs Bunny, and this cartoon, The Wild Hare, is considered his first appearance with his trademark saying "What's Up, Doc?"

July 26, 1940.

To me, a baby boomer in her 60's, we used to enjoy cartoons on Saturday mornings.  We didn't realize that some of those cartoons were made years before we were born.  Some of those cartoons (including one from 1953 called Southern Fried Rabbit) would not be considered politically correct today.  But many can be enjoyed online, including one I love called Rabbit Rampage.

In real life, rabbits sometimes munch on my garden.  But that habit doesn't prevent me from enjoying the cartoon Bugs getting the better of Elmer Fudd.

What was your favorite childhood cartoon?


  1. I think it is indicative of a motherhood fail I have yet to introduce the child to Bugs Bunny. TODAY IS THE DAY!!

  2. Watching Bugs Bunny with my brother is one of my favorite childhood memories - it was just about the only time we weren't bickering :)

  3. I grew up watching Bugs Bunny cartoons. I always thought Bugs Bunny was cool. Even when he would dress as a female bunny to trick Elmer Fudd.

  4. If Elmer was around I would hire him in a minute, lol.

  5. Ah, the Saturday morning cartoons! I remember them well. But I especially remember the cartoons that played before the Saturday afternoon double feature at the old Princess Theater of my childhood. Now those were the days!

  6. My kids love them some Looney Tunes. We'll have to watch some tonight in Bug's honor!
