Bugs Bunny is an animated cartoon character; created in 1940 by Leon Schlesinger Productions (later Warner Bros. Cartoons) and voiced originally by Mel Blanc. Bugs is best known for his starring roles in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of animated short films, produced by Warner Bros. Due to his popularity during the golden age of American animation, he became an American cultural icon and the official mascot of Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Bugs is an anthropomorphic gray hare or rabbit who is famous for his flippant, insouciant personality. He is also characterized by a Brooklyn accent, his portrayal as a trickster, and his catch phrase "Eh... What's up, doc?". Though a similar rabbit character began appearing in the Warner Bros. cartoon shorts during the late 1930s, the definitive character of Bugs Bunny is widely credited to have made his debut in director Tex Avery's Oscar-nominated film A Wild Hare (1940).

Since his debut, Bugs has appeared in various short films, feature films, compilations, TV series, music records, comic books, video games, award shows, amusement park rides, and commercials. He has also appeared in more films than any other cartoon character, is the ninth most-portrayed film personality in the world, and has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


Instant Martians are the names given to Martians that Marvin the Martian grew from seeds in "Hare-Way to the Stars". He sent them after Bugs Bunny, but they were outsmarted by him.

Prior to this short, aliens that looked exactly like them appeared in "Jumpin' Jupiter". Younger versions of them appear in Duck Dodgers. One of them also made a very brief cameo appearance in Looney Tunes: Back in Action, sleeping on the job of guarding the ship and failing to notice Bugs and Daffy got it. They re-appear in The Looney Tunes Show during Marvin's music video "I'm a Martian". In this short video, in addition to one being a DJ and one a hippie guitarist, there are also very attractive female Martians seen dancing. They next appeared in another music video "Be Polite". They later appear living in Marvin's house on Mars in The Looney Tunes Show. They also appear in Looney Tunes: Rabbits Run disguised as Cecil Turtle's goons.
