Bugs Bunny, the lynchpin of the Looney Tunes, has been called
everything from "classic" to "perennial" to "an American
institution" to "one of our national heroes"--and "wascally
wabbit," "long-eared galoot," and a lot of other things
But most of us just like to call him Bugs. Bugs was voted
the most popular in the entire short-subject field in the
United States and Canada for the year 1945, and then stayed
in the Number One spot for the next 16 years straight.
