It was on this date in 1940 that the iconic cartoon character we all know and love, Bugs Bunny, makes his debut in A Wild Hare. Bugs voice was originally played by Mel Blanc, who also was the voice actor for many other cartoon characters, to the extent he earned the nickname “Man of a Thousand Voices.” Since Bugs made his debut, he has been featured in more films than any other cartoon character ever created, not to mention the countless Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies cartoons, full feature length films, commercials, video games, amusement parks and just about every other retail item you can possibly imagine.
