Over a 36-year span starting in 1930, Warner Bros. studios turned out a series of theatrical cartoons known as Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. In the process, they let loose some of the greatest directors in the field, who proceeded to create a wild stable of characters and cartoons that were probably the funniest and most frantic ever made. The directors responsible include Friz Freleng, Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, Chuck Jones and Robert McKimson. The immortal characters they created include Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester and Tweety, Road Runner and Coyote, and many, many more. Having already passed the test of time, these cartoons will be making audiences laugh for generations to come.

A cartoon character's height is measured by how many heads tall they are. Bugs bunny is just under 4 heads tal but when you add his ears he's 5 ½ heads tall.

The influence of Bugs' many directors, animators, designers and writers has transformed him from the embryonic, hyperactive bit-player in "Porky's Hare Hunt" (1938) to the sharp-minded and confident American icon of 1990's "Box Office Bunny.
