"What's up, Doc?"
- Bugs Bunny
Bugs Bunny may be one of the most recognizable cartoon characters of all time, second only to Disney's Mickey Mouse. The character was named after his animator and creator, Ben "Bugs" Hardaway. He first made it to the screen in 1938.
Bugs is often seen alongside other Looney Tunes characters such as Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, the Tasmanian Devil, Elmer Fudd, and Yosemite Sam. He often wreaks havoc on the plans of his fellow characters, earning him the nickname of "rascally rabbit," or, as Elmer Fudd says, "that 'wascally wabbit.'"

Nearly a century after his creation, Bugs Bunny is still on the big screen. Space Jam 2, the "long-awaited sequel" to the 1996 augmented reality film that paired Bugs Bunny with basketball star Michael Jordan, is set for release in 2021. This time, Bugs and the rest of the crew will appear alongside LeBron James.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Bugs Bunny
Bugs Bunny Drawing - Step 1
1. Begin by sketching Bugs Bunny's head. His head is a curved diamond shape, the rounded "corners" indicating his forehead, cheeks, and chin. Use a series of short, connected lines to sketch the face, giving it a furry appearance.

5. Extend another long, curved line from the belly, and double it back upon itself to meet the top of the leg. This forms the remaining leg. Note again the overlapping lines that indicate the toes, and the curved line across the top of the foot.

7. Extend a pair of curved lines from the body to form the arm. Then, use additional curved and "U" shaped lines to draw the hand and the carrot it is holding. Notice the small, connected "U" shaped lines that enclose the greenery dangling from the top of the carrot.

8. Detail Bugs Bunny's face. Enclose large ovals to form the eyes, with a small shaded circle inside each to indicate the pupil. Use curved lines to outline the nose, open mouth, buck teeth, and tongue. Finally, draw a number of curved lines extending from each side of the nose to indicate the whiskers.

9. Draw Bugs Bunny's long ears. For each ear, extend two curved lines upward from the head and allow them to meet at a gentle point. Draw the inner ear by extending two more curved lines from the head, parallel to the outside lines. Allow these to meet at a sharp point.
