Happy 67th Birthday, Bugs Bunny!

Via Howstuffworks:

Bugs Bunny, that wascally wabbit, made his cartoon debut on July 27, 1940 in "A Wild Hare" with Elmer Fudd. That cartoon marked the first time the world ever heard,

"Eh, what's up, Doc?"

More than 175 animated shorts and a few movies later, Bugs Bunny still tops the charts when it comes to favorite cartoon characters.
