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

Chuck Jones: I think that Bugs is different than all of our characters in that he's a comic hero. And in all my films I try to have the feeling that he was put-upon, that he was minding his own business, and really not interested in being an aggressive character, until somebody comes along and tries to do him hurt.

The Most Famous Cartoon Character Ever
1 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I think one of the reasons Bugs Bunny stood out as a star right away that he was such a strong character, " said Ruth Clampett. "Bugs said a lot of things we wish we could say and get away with things we'd like to get away with." Ruth is the daughter of Bugs' animator Bob Clampett.

"Bugs was just an arrogant, flamboyant character," adds comedian Stan Freberg, one of the Looney Tunes voices.

So begins this short "documentary" about the most famous cartoon character ever in which a number of people explain why they think Bugs was so popular.

I found it interesting. It can viewed as one of the features on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume One DVD.
