Bugs Bunny Day - April 30th
April 30 is the birthday of Bugs Bunny, the most famous rabbit in the world, who first appeared on this date in 1938.
Bugs Bunny is the star of the cartoon series "Looney Tunes" and "Merry Melodies" produced by the Warner Brothers.
The character of Bugs Bunny is a character of a trickster who likes to do pranks. He was famous for saying, "What's up, Doc?" Said while chewing raw carrots.
Bugs Bunny was originally voiced by Mel Blanc, "The Man with a Thousand Voices," dubbed by Jewish-American cartoons that lived between the years 1908-1989. Blanc also dubs Duffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Yosemite Sam, Porky Pig, Sylvester Cat, Speedy Gonzalez, the Tasmanian Devil and more.
While recording the voice of Bugs Bunny, Blanc used to chew raw carrots and spit it immediately into a marzipan, as swallowing the carrots would take too long. There were attempts to use other fruits and vegetables to make the sound but they were unsuccessful because the sound made was not similar enough to the sound of chewing carrots. There was a rumor that Blanc was allergic to carrots and that's why he would spit it out, but that's not true.
The origin of the name "Bugs Bunny" came from the animator Ben Hardaway, who created Bugs 'sketch in 1938. Ben's nickname was Bugs and when he drew the rabbit, he wrote under the drawing "Bugs' Bunny".
In the cartoon series based on the cartoons, Bugs Bunny's real name is George Washington Bunny.
Bugs Bunny has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
April 30 is also International Jazz Day
