A Tough Little Stinker

They show me a picture of the character and then they show me a storyboard which tells what this character is going to do in the cartoons. They said Bugs Bunny was a tough little stinker, so I had to make him tough. I thought, which is the toughest voice? Either Brooklyn or the Bronx. [in the Bugs voice] So I put da two of em tageddah, Doc. Dat’s how I got da voice for Bugs. Heheheh.
