I'm going against my principle of not talking shop since I had to comment on this new incarnation of Bugs Bunny and friends which is scheduled to hit your screens this Fall.
Greg' Ford has worked with the Rabbit for most of the last three decades. I had the privilege of working with him on a number of short films and one feature starring my favorite cartoon character. Naturally I was interested in hearing his thoughts about the new 'descendants'.
"They are the perfect models for the current era," Greg told me. "Bugs Bunny was created during a populist era in the second Roosevelt administration, and a few years later, he fought the Fascists.
These characters are the Fascists."
"It's just wrong," another professor said, when contemplating the lineup from LOONATICS.
Maybe the show will do well. Maybe Greg is right and this is an appropriate set of characters for the time.
And these are, as the old Chinese proverb says, "interesting times."
