Did you guys know that carrots are actually bad for rabbits? They’re too high in sugar and can lead to tooth decay and other serious health defects in our furry little friends. So why did Bugs Bunny eat them all the time? Because of Clark Gable, that’s why.

The reference might not seem so obvious to us know, but when Bugs first appeared in theaters over seventy years ago the audience immediately understood that when Bugs ate a carrot and talked with his mouth full; he was parodying Clark Cable in Frank Capra’s It Happened One Night (1934).

It turns out that, according to Friz Freleng’s unpublished memoirs, that It Happened One Night was one the animators favorite films and that at least three characteristics of Bugs Bunny are based on the film. Besides Clark Gable inspiring Bugs’ carrot addiction; his personality was based on Oscar Shapely, a minor character in the film who consistently referred to Gable as Doc. Not only that, the famous Rabbit was named after Bugs Dooley; an imaginary character mentioned in the film.

Sure, It Happened One Night is considered to be one the best romantic comedies of all time, and it might have been directed by Frank Capra, who’s arguably the greatest American film director ever; but this might be one of those rare cases where the parody has outlived the original reference.

Some what related: When Bugs Bunny referred to Elmer Fudd as “Nimrod” he was ironically referencing Nimrod from the book of Genesis who was a mighty hunter. Children growing up with Bugs Bunny (self included) not familiar with the story, grew up thinking that “Nimrod” was an insult of stupidity or incompetence.

Another instance where the parody has outlived the original reference.

I remember as a kid watching Felix the cat they were calling the little sciencey dude Poindexter and I just thought they were insulting him, then when I realized it was his actual name I wondered if maybe the character was old enough to be the reason people associate the word “Poindexter” with derisive slang for geekiness.

(and he totally is)

OKAY, THERE’S NOT UNDERSTANDING HISTORY

AND THEN THERE’S “IGNORING HISTORY IN FAVOR OF REWRITING IT TO FIT YOUR NARROW-MINDED VIEWS”

France couldn’t stop Hitler!

THE GERMANS WENT AROUND THE BULK OF THE FRENCH DEFENSES IN THE MAGINOT LINE BY GOING THROUGH BELGIUM, THUS CUTTING OFF THE FRENCH MILITARY FROM THEIR SUPPLIES AND CAUSING THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT TO SEEK AN ARMISTICE AND EVENTUALLY SURRENDER TO THE FAR MORE MOBILE GERMAN ARMY. THE FRENCH MILITARY WAS MOSTLY DEFEATED BEFORE IT HAD A CHANCE TO FIGHT, AND MANY FRENCH COMMANDERS WERE READY TO HOLD OUT HAD THEY NOT BEEN INSTRUCTED TO STAND DOWN BY THEIR GOVERNMENT’S LEADERS.

Russia had a lot of guns and they couldn’t stop Hitler without the cold!

THE GERMAN INVASION OF RUSSIA CAUGHT THE SOVIET UNION OFF-GUARD, WITH LITTLE RESISTANCE FROM THE BLACK SEA TO THE FINNISH FRONT (AND HITLER STILL LOST NEARLY 1,000,000 SOLDIERS IN THE INITIAL OFFENSIVE). ONCE RALLIED, THE RED ARMY STOPPED THE GERMANS AT STALINGRAD, WHERE AN OFFENSIVE ACTION BY SOVIET GENERALS GEORGY ZHUKOV AND ALEKSANDR VASILEVSKY ENCIRCLED AND CRUSHED THE GERMAN 6TH ARMY, EFFECTIVELY TURNING THE TIDE OF THE WAR IN EUROPE. IF THE COLD HADN’T STOPPED THE GERMANS IN RUSSIA, THE SHEER NUMBERS OF THE RED ARMY (ARMED BY THE LEND-LEASE PROGRAM) AND THE BRILLIANCE OF ROKOSSOVSKY AND ZHUKOV WOULD HAVE DONE IT EVENTUALLY.

BUT LET’S BACK UP FOR A SECOND

I wish armed Jews in the ghetto could’ve stopped Hitler, but…

THE POINT OF ARMING A POPULACE AGAINST TYRANNY IS NOT A GUARANTEE OF VICTORY. IT DOES, HOWEVER, GIVE THOSE PEOPLE A FIGHTING CHANCE, AND THE FUCKING CHOICE TO DIE ON THEIR FEET, FIGHTING FOR THEIR FREEDOM, RATHER THAN BE WALKED INTO A GAS CHAMBER LIKE LIVESTOCK. THESE MOVEMENTS (AND MANY MORE LIKE THEM) WERE RUN BY HEROES WHO RISKED EVERYTHING FOR THEIR LIVES, THEIR FAMILIES, AND THEIR COUNTRIES BY REFUSING TO SUBMIT TO THE ARMY WHOSE BOOT WAS ALREADY ON THEIR NECK:

TELL ME, JON STEWART, IF YOU COULD, IN FACT, GO BACK IN TIME, WOULD YOU TELL ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE NOT TO BOTHER? THAT THE ALLIES WOULD EVENTUALLY COME AT SOME UNSPECIFIED POINT IN THE FUTURE AND THAT THEY MIGHT LIVE (emphasis on “might”) IF THEY JUST SUBMITTED TO THE NAZIS? WOULD YOU GO TO THE DESCENDANT OF A RESISTANCE FIGHTER, AND TELL THEM THEIR ANCESTORS DIED IN VAIN BECAUSE THEIR NATION AND THEIR PEOPLE WOULD’VE BEEN LIBERATED ANYWAY, AND THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE WAR EFFORT VIA THE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TASK OF DISRUPTING NAZI SUPPLY LINES AND FORCING THE GERMAN ARMY TO STRETCH ITSELF THIN DIDN’T MATTER?

NO, YOU WOULDN’T, BUT BECAUSE YOU CAN SAY “I’M A COMEDIAN,” YOU SOMEHOW THINK YOU HAVE THE FUCKING RIGHT TO HANDWAVE THE DEATHS OF TENS OF THOUSANDS OF HEROES AND PATRIOTS WHO HAD THE GODDAMNED BALLS TO STAND UP TO THE NAZI WAR MACHINE, FREQUENTLY ARMED WITH LITTLE MORE THAN A SHITTY ONE-SHOT PISTOL AND A KNIFE, AS “NOT THAT IMPORTANT,” ALL FOR THE SAKE OF A “JOKE?”

THAT IS, WITHOUT A DOUBT, THE SINGLE MOST ARROGANT, IGNORANT, DISRESPECTFUL FUCKING THING I HAVE EVER HEARD ON MY TELEVISION - AND I’VE WATCHED BILL O’REILLY’S SHOW ON FOX NEWS.

TL;DR: FUCK. YOU.

Someone Who Actually PAID FUCKING ATTENTION IN HISTORY CLASS

P.S.:

Guns were kind of a big deal in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave up his firearms due to pressure from pacifist groups who convinced him it was unbecoming of someone in his position, but previously owned “an arsenal” worth of guns. Malcolm X, however, stuck to the idea of armed self-defense, for good reason. The King family also believes that the Memphis Police and federal government had a hand in his assassination, but that’s an entirely different subject.
