Bugs as he appeared in his official debut, "A Wild Hare".
Bugs Bunny is the main character in the Looney Tunes series.
The fictional cartoon character Bugs Bunny was "born" in 1940 in Brooklyn, New York (or so his bio says). He soon wound up on the Warner Brothers studio lot and made his first feature appearance in Tex Avery's 'A Wild Hare', when he emerges from his rabbit hole to ask Elmer Fudd, "What's Up Doc?"
He appeared in numerous cartoon shorts in the Looney Tunes series as well as a Saturday morning and syndicated animated series. Considered an ideal actor, he was directed by Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones and several starred in feature films, including Space Jam which co-stared Michael Jordan.
The Bugs Bunny short, Knighty Knight Bugs, in which a medieval Bugs Bunny traded blows with Yosemite Sam (as the Black Knight) and his fire-breathing dragon, was awarded an Oscar. `What's Opera, Doc?', Chuck Jones' cartoon starring Bugs and Elmer parodying Wagner's Ring, was added to the Library of Congress' archive of motion pictures. It is currently (2002) the only short cartoon (as opposed to full-length feature film) included in the collection.
