Happy 70th Birthday Bugs Bunny!

Icon of the American screen, one of the great cartoon characters of all time (American or otherwise), Bugs was born in Brooklyn in a warren under Ebbets Field.

Created by Tex Avery, animated by Virgil Ross (both of whom we will attend to in a future post), the 1938 prototype for Bugs Bunny appeared in Pokey's Hare Hunt.

Read a little Starpulse blurb on Bug's birthday, and even more at the Smithsonian Libraries.
