Soon Easter will be here, and the bunny is a symbol of Easter as well as spring. Across America, many children are sitting next to the Easter bunny and their parents or a photographer are capturing that special moment on film. During Easter and spring, the most popular bunny is Peter Cottontail. However, there is one rabbit that is an all-time favorite the entire year, Bugs Bunny who has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was featured on a U.S. 32 cent postage stamp.
Bugs Bunny is one of the many characters of the Looney Tunes which is an American series of humorous short films created by Warner Bros from 1930 to 1969. Other Looney Tunes characters include Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck, the Road Runner, the Tasmanian Devil, Tweety the Bird and Sylvester the Cat – – just to name a few examples. These cartoons have entertained many generations and still continue to do so today.
Bugs Bunny was even a major character on the big screen in the 1996 film, Space Jam, a comedy that combined animation and live action. This movie also had wonderful special effects that made it come alive. This flick earned an impressive $100 million showing that Looney Tunes also did well on the big screen.
Beyond the big screen and the small screen, there is a place where you can get up close and personal with the Looney Tunes in Jackson, New Jersey, Six Flags Great Adventure. How happy your children will feel when they actually get to meet their favorite Looney Tunes character. There will also be many opportunities for your kids to pose for a photo with a Looney Tunes cartoon. You will also be able to purchase souvenirs at the Looney Tunes Shoppe.
