Nobody Wants to be Mickey Mouse

And most don’t want to be cartoonists. But that’s how I felt after watching Bugs Bunny, the Oscar Winning Rabbit. Again and again every Saturday — inspiration, or Stockholm effect.

Here’s one thing unmentioned in the video: Bugs never took the first swing. He didn’t start fights, he finished them, usually as the winner (I say usually because I’m guessing there’s probably a cartoon that ends in a stalemate, as a change of pace.)
