* WeirdAlEffect: How many modern viewers - hell, how many viewers ''period'' - recognize that some of Bugs' most popular traits were lifted directly from Groucho Marx (carrot = cigar, "Of corse you realize, this means war!")?

** Watch him in "Rabbit's Feet" and just try telling yourself that he's not shamelessly flirting with Wile E. Coyote with all of the kissing, cuddling and idle chit-chatting he does.

** In Zig-zagged in "Southern Fried Rabbit", Bugs gets past AxCrazy Rabbit." On the one hand, Bugs's "slave" impression avoids the always-uncomfortable {{blackface}} (he looks more like a normal rabbit in a summer coat), and only uses it to bust Yosemite Sam for beating slaves by doing a highly unfortunate impersonation [[ItMakesSenseInContext leaving and re-entering dressed as Abraham Lincoln]]. On the other hand, it's still an impression of a banjo-playing slave.
black slave {{played for laughs}}.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In "Falling Hare", Bugs narrowly stop the Gremlin from crashing into a pair of identical twin skyscrapers by flying in between them. Not sixty years later...

** In fairness, "Elmer's Pet Rabbit" is only nominally considered to be a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Warner Bros. slapped a "Bugs Bunny" title card at the beginning of the cartoon to quickly exploit the unexpected success of the previous ''WesternAnimation/AWildHare''. In actuality, both cartoons were in production at the same time using different variations of the goofy grey rabbit Looney Tunes had been using in numerous cartoons at that point. "Tortoise Beats Hare" is the more proper second Bugs cartoon.

* AwardSnub: Bugs' debut cartoon, WesternAnimation/AWildHare, was nominated for an Oscar in 1941 for best animated short, along side the [=MGM=] cartoon, WesternAninmation/PussGetsTheBoot (which featured the debut of WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry). Both cartoons lost to the long since forgotten, and [[TastesLikeDiabetes rather schmalzy]] cartoon, The Milky Way. While the cat and mouse duo would go on to win several Oscars during their theatrical run, it took Bugs 18 years to finally win the award. It ended up being the only one he would ever win.

* HilariousInHindsight: In 'Rebel Rabbit' bugs finds out that the reward for Foxes is $50, but the reward for rabbits is $.02. When he goes to Washington to complain about this, he's told its because Foxes are destructive, but rabbits are harmless... Maybe Bugs decided to prove them wrong by sending some relatives down under.
