The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Bugs Bunny on his 80th birthday. His first "official" appearance was in July 1940, though he had been evolving for a couple of years by then. We're all big Looney Tunes fans around here, let me tell ya. We talk about the wascally wabbit, some of his co-stars, a bit about his creators, a little bit of a tangent about modifying the classics, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
