Created for the most part by the group of designers composed of Robert McKimpson, Chuck Jones (recently passed away at the age of 89), and Friz Freleng, we will stop to talk about the rabbit most famous cartoon: Bugs Bunny who in Italy was called Lollo Rompicollo. What makes this rabbit so likeable and incomparable is its tranquility and its phlegm in front of any hunter determined to shoot him, whether it is Duffy Duck, from Pallino, from Yosemite Sam or from Taddeo, Bugs Bunny always replies "Hey, man what's up with you?" . In the original American dub Bugs Bunny he has a strong accent from the Bronx, one of the most infamous neighborhoods in Brooklyn and this helps to give him the characterization of "brat". Bugs Bunny cartoons entertain with their unpredictable gags where Bugs Bunny, chased by the hunter on duty, thanks to his cunning and his imagination, always invents some impossible stratagem, to escape from the enemy who almost always ends up having the worst. It often happens that he disguises himself as a woman to enchant his opponent, or improvises himself as an illusionist or even faces off in a sports duel, where the pursuer becomes the victim of the elusive rabbit. Among the various cartoons worth mentioning are: "Dog at work" with Taddeo, "Errare is human" with Willy Coyote, "Operation rabbit" and "Hold your breath". In many adventures Bugs Bunny he met fairy tale characters like Hansel and Gretel, in some he took on the role of Robin Hood. Bugs Bunny has also tried his hand at numerous sports such as baseball, boxing, rodeo and even bullfighting where he was chased by a raging bull. In all these episodes
Bugs Bunny he always manages to get by and in the end to taste his delicious carrots.
The comic adventures of all these and other Warner Brows cartoon characters have been published in Italy in the books of the Editrice Cenisio.
