  • Hey, It's That Voice!: The voice of Bugs Bunny from the prototypical appearances in 1938 to 1989 was the prolific Mel Blanc. His replacement in the role is Jeff Bergman. Besides providing the voices of other Looney Tunes characters, Bergman is also known as one of the most recent voice actors portraying George Jetson, Elroy Jetson, Mr. Cosmo Spacely, Fred Flintstone, and Barney Rubble.
  • Life Imitates Art: Sort of. After Bugs appeared as a U.S. Marine in "Super-Rabbit", the real Marines made him one. He was officially inducted into the force as a private, complete with dogtags. The character was regularly promoted until Bugs was officially "discharged" at the end of World War II as a Master Sergeant.
  • What Could Have Been: Tex Avery originally wanted to call him Jack E. Rabbit.
