The Rabbit

Bugs Bunny, the linchpin of the Looney Tunes, has been called everything from “classic” to “perennial” to “an American institution” to “one of our national heroes”–and “wascally wabbit,” “long-eared galoot,” and a lot of other things besides! But most of us just like to call him Bugs.

Now he’s starring in Space Jam, Warner Bros.’ first original feature film graced by Bugs in a leading role–opposite Michael Jordan, no less! Producer Ivan Reitman and director Joe Pytka head a team of filmmakers including producers Joe Medjuck and Daniel Goldberg, executive producers Ken Ross and David Falk, and screenwriters Leo Benvenuti & Steve Rudnick and Timothy Harris & Herschel Weingrod to bring this ambitious and precedent-setting project to life. Starring with Bugs and Michael Jordan are Wayne Knight, Theresa Randle and the voice of Danny DeVito.

Heading the bill in Space Jam with one of the sports world’s most entertaining players is a natural opportunity for the venerable Warner Bros. character. After all, Bugs was voted the most popular in the entire short-subject field in the United States and Canada for the year 1945, and then stayed in the Number One spot for the next 16 years straight. Today, in 1996, Bugs continues to draw a crowd–in fact, a recent survey showed him to be the most popular animated character in the world!

When Bugs’ classic cartoons were being made and regularly released to theaters in the 1940s and 1950s, it was his stardom in short subjects that skyrocketed his studio to prominence in the animation field.

Transcript – Being a stand-up comedian is one of the hardest jobs in the entertainment industry, if not the hardest job in the entertainment industry. And it takes a special skill and a special talent to be able to do that, to be up there onstage, just you and a microphone and a stool, and be able to be so open and vulnerable. You know, you hear stories. Comedians are more depressed. They have more substance abuse. They have more this, more that. And, you know, they’re just a really, really troubled population. And I, I don’t necessarily think they’re more troubled than anybody else. The lifestyle of a stand-up comedian breeds the depression. Or can exacerbate something that’s pre-existing, like the bipolar disorder, or substance abuse. Because what happens is that they are out on the road, and they are by themselves, and they’re traveling sometimes to these areas that aren’t very popular and aren’t very pretty and working in these dark, dank clubs and then going back to a dark, dank hotel room.
