Happy birthday, Bugs Bunny!

Bugs Bunny made his first official appearance July 27, 1940 in a short "A Wild Hare".  He isn't named in the short nor is Elmer Fudd, but Bugs delivers his famous line "What's up, doc?"  Mel Blanc voiced Bugs Bunny and gave him a "Flatbush accent an equal blend of Bronx and Brooklyn dialects".

The short "A Wild Hare" was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoons.  Bugs received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, December 21, 1985.  At 76, he still looks as young as a bunny!
