Happy Birthday Bugs

Yesterday was Bugs Bunny’s birthday and I forgot. Sorry Bugs. So here’s an old drawing I cleaned up for Amby Palowoda back in the seventies when I worked for Filmation. I think this was for an advertisement for Warners.
Bugs’s first appearance was in “A Wild Hare” released June 27, 1940. It wass also the first time we saw Elmer Fudd. It was also the first time Mel Blanc used his recognizable version of Bugs’ voice that soon became the standard “What’s up Doc?”
