Bugs Bunny: The Origins of an American Icon

Okay, I admit it, all my knowledge of high culture comes from Bugs Bunny cartoons. Some of yours probably does, too. Bugs has been around so long it isn’t easy to find out where he really started. And his influence on generations of fans is phenomenal. YouTube member kaptainkristian breaks down where this rascally rabbit came from, what he’s done, and why we love him so much.

Mel Blanc -- one of 20th century America's geniuses

He did Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Foghorn Leghorn, Henry the Chickenhawk, Tweety, Sylvester, Yosemite Sam, Speedy Gonzalez -- but he thought of Bugs as his alter ego.
