I’ve been really into characters recently, and after reading Hip by John Leland, I was baffled that I had not thought about one of the greatest characters of all time, Bugs Bunny. Now, I loved all of the Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes cartoons as a kid, and I still think they are some of the best cartoons, but Bugs Bunny was the best. He always did everything effortlessly. He was funny. He was clever. He was never concerned that he might be the loser in the end. He was always the winner. When Elmer Fudd or his other adversaries got angry, he just played it cool. I think everyone wishes they had a little Bugs Bunny in them.
