Bugs Bunny: Friend or Foe

We all know Bugs Bunny. A anthropomorphic grey hare famous for his relaxed and passive personality. A mischievous trickster, chewing on his signature carrot while sprouting his famous catchphrase "Eh, what's up, doc?”. Since his official debut in the 1940s Bugs has appeared in various short films, feature films, compilations, television series, music records, comic books, video games, award shows, amusement park rides, and commercials. When TV Guide compiled a list of the fifty greatest cartoon characters of all time as part of the magazine's 50th anniversary in 2002, Bugs Bunny was given the honour of Number One. As the editor stated “[He] is the best example...of the smart-aleck American comic. He not only is a great cartoon character, he's a great comedian. He was written well. He was drawn beautifully. He has thrilled and made many generations laugh. He is tops.” But that’s the public image. That’s what Bugs wants us to know. When it all comes down it, do we really know Bugs Bunny at all?
