What's Up, Doc? Blog Hop

Welcome to “What’s Up Doc” blog hop!!!!

1930: Birth of Warner's cartoons

Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig are three of the animated cartoon characters that have become central to the corporate image of Warner Brothers. Bosko was introduced as their first character in “Sinkin’ in the Bathtub” with a sister series, Merrie Melodies in 1931. Bosko was taken to MGM due to a contractual dispute where Buddy was then born (a Bosko clone).

Porky Pig was born in 1936 which established the character as the studio's first bona fide star. In addition to Porky Pig, Warner Brothers cartoon characters Daffy Duck (who debuted in the 1937 short Porky's Duck Hunt) and Bugs Bunny (who debuted in the 1940 short A Wild Hare) also achieved star power. By 1942, the Schlesinger studio had surpassed Walt Disney Studios as the most successful producer of animated shorts in the United States.

Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Sylvester, and Porky Pig became central to the company's image in subsequent decades. Bugs remains a mascot to Warner Bros.' various divisions and Six Flags (which Time Warner previously owned). In fact, it was the success of the compilation film, The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie.

For my project today I made a cute little Tweety bird card. I used a free svg file Mardenz.com. The inside of the card says "You're such a TWEETY".

With all of these facts being said, “I tawt a taw a puddy tat”, “that wascally wabbit”, “What’s up Doc”, “you’re desthpicable”, “sufferin’ succotash”, and …….. “Th-th-th-that's all folks!” with going to the next stop along the way is Lisa.
