Cheer Du Jour

A little cheer to forget your troubles, and better yet, to toast with a glass of bubbles!

July 27 – Happy Birthday, Bugs Bunny!

 

Bugs Bunny

What’s Up Doc? Happy Birthday, Bugs! After his debut in “A Wild Hare” in 1940, Bugs has survived 73 years of “wabbit hunting season”. Already a 24-carrot star in the 40’s, Bugs hopped into the hearts of Saturday morning tv audiences starting in 1962.

Remember when we watched cartoons all morning? I am still amazed to see infomercials during the time that used to be dedicated to animation…replacing the likes of Scooby Doo (my favorite!!), Smurfs (before they were mutated into the recent film versions), Super Friends, the Real Ghostbusters, and Pee-wee Herman, to name a few. Click here to see the Saturday morning tv lineups of the 80’s.

Cheers to the wascly wabbit! You don’t look a hare over 21!
