Bugs Bunny is widely considered to come to life on July 27, 1940.
One of the few characters to occasionally lose a fight against his nemesis – Elmur Fudd. The most famous one in which happen was the 1957 short titled What’s Opera, Doc which parodied Wagner’s Opera.
Creators were worried they have made a bully! It was the major reason they decided that Bugs will only retaliate once provoked as they wanted him to be a nice person! The director confirmed this himself.
Bugs is the only character who has literally saved a life. This happened in 1961, a man named Blanc got in a serious car accident which left him comatose. Eventually, some doctor tried talking to the unresponsive patient by referring to him as Bugs Bunny to which Blanc responded “What’s up, Doc?”
