Happy Birthday Bugs Bunny

Today marks Bugs Bunny’s 62nd birthday. The short A Wild Hare, believed to be the first appearance of the rabbit we know now as Bugs, was released to theatres n July 27, 1940, so this is the date Warner Bros. uses as Bugs’ birthday.

Sadly, this will be the first birthday of Bugs’ he’ll be celebrating without his good friend and accomplice Chuck Jones, who directed some of the most memorable cartoons starring the rabbit.

“Gosh, I’m so unimportant!”

Hmm, and I thought he only celebrated on the half. Well, if you can’t beat em, join em.

Happy Birthday Bugs! May each and every one of your starring vehicles soon come to DVD.

Fricka fracka!
Bugs Bunny!
Bugs Bunny!
Rah Rah Rah!

Happy Birthday, you wascally wabbit.

Too bad the best part of your career is probably behind you. :frowning:

Hey, at least you don’t look 62…

Oddly enough today, or rather yesterday, now, I was “gifted” a pet rabbit. Happy birthday, ya long eared galoot! (I just hope your cousin doesn’t destroy my house!)
