2020 55¢ Bugs Bunny


Value:  55¢ 1-ounce First-class rate (Forever)

Issue Date:  July 27, 2020

First Day City:  Burbank, CA

Type of Stamp:  Commemorative

Printed by:  Banknote Corporation of America

Self-Adhesive

Quantity Printed:  50,000,000

  Few cartoon characters are as remembered and loved as Bugs Bunny.  His antics have been making people of all ages laugh since he first appeared on-screen in A Wild Hare in 1940.  While his design has been updated a bit over the years, his famous Brooklyn accent and catchphrase, “Eh… What’s up, doc?” have remained.  As has his trickster personality.

One of the most important parts of Bugs’ crafty nature is his many elaborate disguises.  In fact, the best Bugs Bunny cartoons of all time feature Bugs wearing some sort of unusual outfit and acting like someone else.  These disguises are used to great comedic effect, especially when Bugs uses them to outwit and embarrass his enemies.

In 2020, the United States Postal Service issued a set of 10 new Forever stamps picturing some of Bugs’ most iconic costumes.  These included:  a barber, basketball player, Hollywood star, court jester, Brünnhilde, mermaid, pianist, superhero, baseball player, and Marine Corps master sergeant.  This was the second time in US history that Bugs was featured on a postage stamp.  In 1997, he became the first cartoon character pictured on a US stamp, as well as being so popular that 100 million more stamps had to be printed after the originals sold out.

Bugs Bunny was the product of several animators’ dreams and is a true pop culture icon.  Other popular cartoons have been released over the years, but none have been quite as funny and charismatic as Bugs.
