Bugs Bunny

Top of Toon Town

With America’s involvement in World War II, a new national character emerged: strong, scrappy and wise-cracking. Bugs Bunny’s Brooklyn personality summed it all up and more. His attitude was totally American, and all could identify with his brains-over-brawn situations. His skillful directors — including Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones — came into their own as first-class animators during their time with Bugs. The wabbit himself has since proved to be immortal, with an international popularity (and corporate identity) second only to Disney’s mouse.
