Bugs Bunny is an animated rabbit who appears in the Looney Tunes and Merrie       
Melodies series of animated films produced by Warner Bros. Cartoons. According     
to his biography, he was "born" in 1939 in Brooklyn, New York City, New York and   
the product of many creators: Ben "Bugs" Hardaway (who created a prototypical     
version of Bugs Bunny) Bob Clampett, Tex Avery (who directed A Wild Hare,         
considered Bugs' formal film debut), Robert McKimson (who created the definitive   
Bugs Bunny character design), Chuck Jones, and Friz Freleng.                       
According to Mel Blanc, his original voice actor, his accent is an equal blend     
of the Bronx and Brooklyn dialects; Tex Avery said, to the contrary, that he had   
asked Blanc to give him not a New York voice as such, but a voice like that of     
actor Frank McHugh, who turned up frequently in supporting roles in the thirties   
and whose voice might be described as New York Irish. Bugs Bunny is one of         
the most popular and recognizable cartoon characters in the world. In 2002, he     
was named by TV Guide as the greatest cartoon character of all time.
