Iconic cartoon characters, or perhaps I should say iconic characters period, don’t come much more iconic than Bugs Bunny. Not only is he universally recognized, he’s also universally beloved, and most of his best work holds up today like few 70-year-old entertainments can. But his history is actually quite complicated, which is why Bugs Bunny – The Origins of an American Icon is such a welcome sight.
Bugs Bunny – The Origins of an American Icon is the latest work from YouTuber KaptainKristian, who also did that great analysis of the X-Men’s costumes, among other things. And he does a similarly great job analyzing not just Bugs’ origins, but also what makes him such an enduringly popular character today.
