Easter Yeggs

Bugs Bunny in Easter Yeggs, 1947

Easter always makes me think of the classic 1947 Bugs Bunny cartoon Easter Yeggs. What’s amazing to me is how well the humor holds up today, almost sixty years later (well as of June). By the way it’s interesting to note that the catch phrase of the Easter Rabbit “Keep Smiling!”, is a takeoff of a character actually created by Mel Blanc for George Burns and Gracie Allen’s radio show during the 1940s; Mel’s character was called “The Happy Postman”.

If you want to check out this classic it’s on the web at the Looney Tunes website (gee sometimes big media gets it!).
