Animated Character

Born: 1940
Birthplace: The Movies
Best known as: Carrot-munching animated star
Along with Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny was the most enduring American cartoon character of the 20th century. The acknowledged star of the Warner Brothers cartoon menagerie, Bugs was a cocky, wisecracking, good-hearted hare who battled Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck and other slapstick nemeses in dozens of animated short films. Bugs's debut as a star was the 1940 short A Wild Hare, where he first uttered his trademark line, "What's up, Doc?" Credit for the Bugs Bunny character generally goes to Tex Avery, who developed a preliminary character created by fellow animator Ben "Bugs" Hardaway. (Many of the later Bugs Bunny cartoons were directed by Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones; the voice of Bugs was provided by Mel Blanc.) The shorts remain popular in TV reruns.
Extra credit: The 1958 cartoon Knighty Knight, Bugs won the Academy Award for animation... The Warner Brothers cartoons are collectively known as "Looney Tunes"... Bugs co-starred with Michael Jordan in the 1996 feature film Space Jam.
