Bugs Bunny is an American fictional character who appears in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of animated films. He is a talking rabbit. His catchphrase is "What's up, Doc?", and is typically used as a greeting to anyone he encounters. In 2002, he was named by TV Guide as the greatest cartoon character of all time. Currently, he is the corporate mascot for Warner Brothers, especially its animated productions. Bugs starred in 163 shorts in the Golden Age of American animation, and made cameos in three others along with a few appearances in non-animated films.
Recordings of Mel Blanc (voice of Bugs Bunny) that featured Bugs Bunny's voice were sometimes used for the character, Jaden Yuki, in some episodes that parody Looney Tunes animated shorts. Each parodeid episode has a memoriam for him.
In July 2011, Bugs Bunny and other Looney Tunes character appear in "The Looney Tunes Show" animation style through several episodes. Some of the characters' 1960s design appear in the show as well.
