I finally realized what made Bugs such a special character among the other feisty chaps like Tweety Bird, Daffy Duck or the Road Runner.
He had a certain nonchalance about him, which also could have been translated to “wackiness”. It was like a force of nature unraveled over the other poor characters, not keeping any side but constantly shifting positions for a better treat of merriment and distraction. He possessed both the joyful and the cynical side to make him an improbable, one-of-a-kind character. So I finally put together the pieces and concluded, in the same merry tone of Bugs’ unique spirit: all those carrots must have got him pretty high.
Who said these cartoons were made for children, anyway?
