Storyline

Bugs Bunny, the great animated cartoon star, is the subject of this made-for-DVD documentary short. Ruth Clampett, Stan Freberg and others speculate on why Bugs Bunny has such an enduring appeal. Part of it is: he can get away with anything. Leonard Maltin notes that the personality of Bugs Bunny was a collaborative effort. Chuck Jones calls him a "comic hero." Noel Blanc (Mel's son) and Bill Melendez extol the contribution of Mel Blanc, Bugs Bunny's voice. Jerry Beck tells us that exhibitors were the first sign of Bugs's popularity with audiences: they demanded more Bugs Bunny pictures. Joe Dante and others note more reasons for Bugs's success: he's smart and he always wins. Written by J. Spurlin

Quotes

Leonard Maltin: What I find so interesting about Bugs Bunny is that not only wasn't he hatched overnight, but almost every director and writer team and every lead animator at the studio had a crack at this wacky rabbit character, so that by the time Bugs really came to be the character we now know and recognize, he was a collaborative effort. And maybe that's why he was so good.

Bugs Bunny, the greatest animated cartoon star

Ruth Clampett, Stan Freberg and others speculate on why Bugs Bunny has such an enduring appeal. Part of it is: he can get away with anything. Leonard Maltin notes that the personality of Bugs Bunny was a collaborative effort. Chuck Jones calls him a "comic hero." Noel Blanc (Mel's son) and Bill Melendez extol the contribution of Mel Blanc, Bugs Bunny's voice.

Joe Dante and others note more reasons for Bugs's success: he's smart and he always wins.

Bugs Bunny, the greatest animated cartoon character, could probably sustain a feature-length documentary, but it's nice to see him as the subject of this short film, created for the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume One" and located on Disc 1.
