Bugs Bunny is one of the most popular cartoon characters of all time. Known as a smart trickster, he became so famous that Warner Brothers chose him as the official mascot for this company! Here are 5 interesting facts about him that you probably didnt know!\r
\r
5- In 1938, Animator Ben Bugs Hardaway was redesigning a new rabbit (bunny) character. During the period that Bugs was working on drawing this new bunny, a fellow employee labeled the character as Bugs Bunny. The name then became the official name of Bugs Bunny!\r
\r
4- The inspiration of Bugs Bunnys carrot-chewing standing position came from in a scene in the film It Happened One Night. In that scene,Clark Gable leans against a fence, eating carrots rapidly and talking with his mouth full.\r
\r
3- The movie Who Framed Roger Rabbits is the only time Mickey Mouse & Bugs Bunny have appeared on screen together.\r
Since the film was being produced by Disney, Warner Bros. would only allow the use of their most popular character (Bugs Bunny) on one condition. Bugs Bunny should have got an equal amount of screen time as Disneys biggest star, Mickey Mouse. Because of this, both characters are almost always together when they were onscreen!\r
\r
2- In many Bugs Bunny cartoons, he is getting chased by a not-so-bright hunter called Elmer Fudd.\r
In the cartoons, Bugs Bunny continuously calls Elmer, Nimrod. Nimrod is actually a mighty hunter in the Bible. However, no one got this joke and the word Nimrod was accidentally transformed into a synonym for idiot !\r
\r
1- Bugs Bunny holds several world records!\r
As of Jan. 2013, he has appeared in more films than any other cartoon character. He is also the 9th most portrayed film personality in the world.\r
\r
Finally, Bugs Bunny (along with Mickey Mouse) are the first cartoon characters to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.\r
