There are certain times in my life when familiar things that I'd taken for granted for years grab me by the lapels and slap me into appreciation! Bugs was one of those. Always liked him but generally prefered Daffy and the Loony Tunes that didn't feature ongoing characters. After the Loony Tunes sets were released on dvds, my appreciation for Bugs grew and grew!!

It was a thrill, Mickey. He even dashed off a quick pencil sketch of the Road Runner and signed it for me. Beep-Beep!

Mel Blanc sent me a signed photo. In it, he's at his desk, and about ten of his characters are creating havoc in his office.

That would have been such a thrill to meet Jones.

I had the great fortune to meet one of the animator / directors mentioned in the history of Bugs Bunny above -- Chuck Jones. It was back in my college days; Jones was speaking in our guest lecture series and I got to drive him around town.

One of my strongest memories of that encounter was at the airport while Mr. Jones and I waited for his luggage. While we waited, he was cracking jokes as the at various suitcases as they passed on the conveyor belt. He was a truly charming and funny man who made a lasting contribution to our popular culture.
