Awesome / Bugs Bunny

  • Bug's life is full of these, but we should sum them up by starting with the page quote from Bob Clampett (writing as Bugs): "...I always treat the contest with my pursuers as 'fun and games.' When momentarily I appear to be cornered or in dire danger and I scream, don't be consoined it's actually a big put-on. Let's face it Doc. I've read the script and I already know how it turns out."
  • His trademark "Casual Danger Dialogue". It doesn't just apply to Elmer and hunting, either. In one episode, an angry bull was mere inches behind him and snarling furiously. Bugs responded by smacking the thing upside the head and telling him to stop breathing on his tail.
  • Bugs saved the life of his voice actor Mel Blanc. In 1961, a near-fatal car accident which left him in a coma for three weeks. After many unsuccessful attempts to wake him up, a doctor thought of asking, "How are you today, Bugs Bunny?" at which point he replied (in character) and went on to have a full recovery.
