Warner Bros. 500th animated short, produced in 1946 and released in 1947 is "Easter Yeggs", a word play on 'Easter eggs' and on 'yegg', a slang term for a burglar or safecracker. The technicolor cartoon, directed by Robert McKimson and produced by Eddie Selzer, from a story by Warren Foster, starring Mel Blanc with music by Carl Stalling, features Warners characters 'Bugs Bunny' and 'Elmer Fudd'.
In the cartoon, 'Bugs Bunny' finds the 'Easter Rabbit' sitting on a rock, crying. The Bunny tells Bugs that his feet are sore, so he cannot deliver the Easter eggs. Bugs takes up the job, not knowing that, every year, the Easter Bunny gets some 'dumb bunny' to do his work for him.

Warner Bros. Home Video is sitting on one of the most loved libraries of classic cartoons you could imagine. In many ways, their shorts are superior to Disney’s given the freedom the animators had for decades and the memorable characters generated as a result. At first they released the Golden Collection box sets which were a nice mix of material but they wound that down. Instead, they’ve now opted for a series under the Looney Tunes Super Stars umbrella with the first two releases coming late last year.
While these are welcome discs with cartoons we’ve not previously had available, it is still not the ultimate library we want (and the characters deserve). The two discs -- Foghorn Leghorn & Friends: Barnyard Bigmouth and Tweety & Sylvester: Feline Fwenzy – each offer up two hours of cartoons but are a hodge-podge selection.
Foghorn Leghorn was created by Robert McKimson in 1946 and starred in 28 cartoons, »
