We're celebrating 80 years of Bugs Bunny with a TikTok challenge that gets everyone showing off their own rendition of Bugs' iconic catchphrase: "What’s up Doc?"
Bugs has shown us how to outsmart any adversary and overcome any challenge, with irreverence exuberance and lots of laughs. And let’s face it, there is a little bit of Bugs in all of us – so don't be shy, make your impersonation your own and give the #WhatsUpDocChallenge your best shot!
Providing some inspiration was veteran voice actor Eric Bauza, who currently voices Bugs Bunny in HBO Max's "Looney Tunes Cartoons." TikTok users also have the option to mimic the famous Looney Tunes theme song.
