Jack Warner VS. Bugs Bunny


Jack Warner, one of the famed Warner Brothers, actually despised his studios' animated output. He expressed contempt for the Looney Tunes and once was quoted as saying that Mickey Mouse was one of the company's animated characters alongside Bugs Bunny. (Which he was not, of course.) Jack placed such little value on the characters that he sold them off for next to nothing in 1950. The studio would buy them back years later for millions.
