Bugs Bunny Turns 75
I almost forgot to do this today. Shame on me! I should know stuff like this. I planned this months ago and thought about scheduling it then but didn't. Anyway, today marks the 75th anniversary of the debut of my favorite fictional character, Bugs Bunny. I realize my name should be Bugs97 or BugsBunny97 but if my online name was going to be named after a character, then I wanted it to reflect me being a brony. Anyway, a character that would evolve into Bugs first appeared in Porky's Hare Hunt (1938) before the version people recognize appeared in A Wild Hare, which was released on this day in 1940. It was also the first appearance of Elmer Fudd under his recognizable name (he was previously known as Egghead).
