It’s Bugs Bunny’s birthday. He first appeared 74 years ago today in this cartoon:
What I like about Bugs is that he really never starts a fight. If the antagonist leaves him alone things will be fine.

The makeover movie is much more enjoyable than the extreme makeovers on daily daytime television. At least you care about the people being made over in the course of the film.
