Today is the 70th anniversary of the first "official" Bugs Bunny short, A Wild Hare, which was released on this very day way the hell back in 1940 and went on to win an Oscar nomination. It's therefore something like Bugs Bunny's birthday today.
Ain't he a stinker? Like many "official" anythings, it's only part of the story. Bugs evolved through a few shorts before this. But this one is official.
What's your favorite Bugs Bunny cartoon? I mean besides What's Opera, Doc? (1957) which was weirdly NOT nominated for an Oscar. Bugs' Oscar record goes like so (click links to watch shorts).
