FORT WORTH, TX -- Okay, so it’s almost Easter, as if you needed a reminder. For some, that means a visit from Mr. Peter Cottontail.

But did you know another famous furry friend has hopped down the bunny trial? Yeah, some might even consider this rabbit the king of comedic cartoons.

That’s right, the notable rambunctious rabbit, Bugs Bunny, is on display like you’ve never seen him before.

“The exhibit celebrates his life and work. Chuck Jones is the artist behind some famous cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and other Looney Tunes characters,” Kevin Thacker with the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History said.

The exhibit, What’s Up Doc, is at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and features original sketches by Looney Tune creator, Chuck Jones.

"It really has some of his unique drawings and artwork that Chuck did in his lifetime,” Thacker explained.

The exhibit is on loan from the Smithsonian and shows in great detail Bugs’ transformation, along with all those classic characters.

"I actually kinda liked it," young patron Syler Foshee said. "I was thinking about doing one of those animations like that when I get home, maybe.”

"It was awesome," Lisa Foshee added. "It brought back a lot of old memories of cartoons we used to watch as kids, just seeing all the behind-the-scenes and the animation cells.”

Keep in mind – the exhibit is only here through April 26th, that's all folks!
