Bugs Bunny Hates You

From 1990, here's a clip from The Earth Day Special. A Time Warner produced, celebrity cameo-filled primetime special celebrating the 20th anniversary of Earth Day. Here is the short cameo by the Looney Tunes characters where Bugs complains about how mankind has destroyed the Earth. Starstruck Tweety and Porky don't seem to care about Bugs' rant and run off to meet Meryl Streep instead (seriously). The clip below cuts off Bugs' final line: "This was a great place to live until MAN set foot on it!"




I have no idea if Bugs reappears later in the special to apologize to all mankind or not, but if you are brave enough this whole special can be found on YouTube. This was also one of the first appearances of the LT gang after Mel Blanc's death (here voiced by Jeff Bergman).

No, Bugs and the gang don't make another apperance in this show. However, there is a nice apperance with the Muppets, which was one of Jim's last performances before his tragic death.

A question rises in my mind: could Bugs keep the earth cleaner than us humans?

I remember this! My sixth-grade class watched this special way, way back in 1998, and I remember only being interested in this very part. I was sorely disappointed that the characters only had this brief snippet of screen time - I didn't even care that they were basically badmouthing the human race.

You tell them Bugs...

Bugs was busy back in 1990.

Aside from his first theatrical short in thirty-six years, he also starred in the (in)famous Cartoon All Stars to the Rescue, which putting it mildly, reminds me how well these anti-drug programs have worked for Generation Y. :-/
