There are 3 cartoon characters that are the most widely recognized throughout the world. There's Mickey Mouse. There's Superman. And the third one just celebrated his 75th birthday on Monday--Bugs Bunny.
Warner Brothers doesn't officially celebrate the birthdays of fictional characters, but July 27th, 1940, is considered to be the first appearance of that wascally wabbit in "A Wild Hare", an Oscar nominated cartoon short directed by Tex Avery. Voiced by Mel Blanc, the film also saw the debut of his well-known chatchphrase, "Eh....What's up, doc?"
So....how does a famous rabbit (who has his own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame) celebrate his 75th birthday?
Never mind "75"--I hope I get to celebrate this way on my next birthday!
