Does anyone know the ten phrases that Bugs Bunny says?
Rob Lambert - May 26, 2012 - Report this comment
There were several versions of Bugs Bunny talking dolls, and nearly all were made by Mattel. The first ones came out in 1962. It was sort of a self-promoting thing; When the "Bugs Bunny" network TV show moved from prime time to Saturdays, Mattel became a co-sponsor, along with General Foods. Along with the familiar "What's Up, Doc?" phrase, the dool's other phrases were mostly about loving and eating carrots. Marketing of the dolls began to slacken into the 1970s, as new cartoon characters such as Scooby Doo and Archie took front stage to Looney Tunes. A new surge in Bugs talking dolls began in the late "70s, as the Looney Tunes became mascots for the Six Flags chain of theme parks.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault: TV commercial has a boy hiding behind a bush. An old man walks by, the kid makes his Bugs Bunny doll say, "What's up, Doc?" The man flinches, looks at the bush and quickly leaves. You can tell it's Mattel, it's swell! This aired on the "Bugs Bunny Show" over ABC (9/26/64). A talking Porky Pig doll appears in the closing sponsor tag.

Still got one from the '70s 'What's up doc?' 'Gee, I scared myself!' 'I like carrots!' 'You're a cute bunny!' etc.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a minute-long TV spot for Mattel's talking hand puppets. Bugs Bunny, Mister Ed and Woody Woodpecker. Commercial features a boy named Stanley, whose mother keeps prodding him to go to sleep. The boy keeps playing with the puppets instead of sleeping. This aired on "Bugs Bunny Show" over ABC (11/7/64). Along with Kool Aid ad, Mattel other toys and network promo ("Flintstones"), show ends with a scary (for a 3-year-old) Ad Council PSA with Smokey Bear. A forest fire erupts, Smokey evacuates Bambi the deer and other animals away. It was animated by Disney, with highly dramatic background music.
