Did You Know?

Trivia:
The scene in which Bugs discusses his "several fathers" was written by Chuck Jones as a way to debunk fellow animation director Robert Clampett's claims throughout the 1970s that he alone created Bugs. Clampett's name is notably missing from Bugs's list. Also missing is Ben Hardaway, who created the earliest prototype of Bugs and was in fact the originator of the name "Bugs Bunny" (Bugs being Hardaway's own nickname), though in this case Jones later confirmed that the omission had simply been an oversight, and that he would have had no qualms about including Hardaway in the gallery.See more »

an interesting compilation, 3 July 2005
Author: Lee Eisenberg (lee.eisenberg.pdx@gmail.com) from Portland, Oregon, USA

In "The Great American Chase", Bugs Bunny traipses through his house and tells us the story of chases. To make his point, he shows us several classic cartoons (some starring him) dealing with situations involving hot pursuits. Well, not all of them have chases; some are there just for fun. Bugs remembers how Chuck Jones sent him into space, where he met Marvin the Martian; then how Daffy Duck and Porky Pig tried to colonize Planet X and had to contend with Marvin the Martian; how Daffy (as Robin Hood) had a very hard time recruiting Porky (as Friar Tuck); how Daffy's scenery frustratingly changed every few minutes; how he, Bugs, ended up in a bullfight; how he and Daffy dug into Ali Baba's cave; how he and Elmer Fudd acted out "The Ride of the Valkyries"; how Wile E. Coyote tried and failed to eat him; and finally, how Wile E. decided to try something a little more his size, by which we mean the Road Runner. The Wile E. Coyote/Road Runner chase is really the best part of the movie. Overall, it's a pretty neat compilation of classic cartoons, and I liked the scene where Bugs remembers his "fathers" (Mel Blanc, Chuck Jones, etc.).
