Rodent VS. Rabbit

So you should be able to tell where this match up is going in the Nostalgic Battle Royal based on the title of this entry...THAT'S RIGHT, we're gonna throw Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse into a one-on-one match.

Lets take a l
ook at that "wascaly wabbit," known as Bugs Bunny. Bugs Bunny, without a shadow of a doubt, is one of the best cartoon characters ever to be invented. He was quick witted, had an attitude, and always had a plan. Bugs was/is the face of The Looney Tunes. He's the boss, the leader, the poster child. Although some people might consider Daffy, Taz, Tweety, etc. their favorite characters, Bugs Bunny is by default, the best out of the bunch. I mean, look at how many countless goons Bugs has made fools out of, Elmer Fudd, Daffy, Yosemite Sam, Taz...hell, even the three bears and little red riding hood. Everyone has their favorite Bugs Bunny episode or moment, not to mention, you could always be ready to hear Bugs with his "Eh, what's up Doc?" or him taking a wrong turn at Albuquerque or him even dressing in drag. Bugs has a shit load of movies, including my personal favorite Space Jam (which was a good blog read, if you didn't read it, find it here) and Bugs has so many classic episodes from television. Bugs (along with the rest of the crew) are the lead characters of Six Flags...which is a damn cool amusement park. Bugs is also the face of the company WB...which is going to come into play later with his opponent being the face of the company Disney. So what could hurt Bugs in this battle royal? Well, he dressed up in drag way too much...and didn't really get a significant other until Space Jam rolled around. Bugs also has a pretty long list of enemies, which could cause some outside interference in this battle royal. As far as attitude and quick wit, Bugs might come out on top.

Hailing from Disney World, Orlando, Florida...and wherever Disneyland is...Mickey M
ouse enters this battle royal with cuteness and charm...but did you see Mickey on that episode of South Park?? He has a demented side to of course we have to take that into account for this battle royal. But what else does Mickey bring to the table?? Mickey is in the same boat with Bugs, being the face of the company AND his posse. When you think Disney, you think M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E (he has his own song, Bugs doesn't). Mickey has had movies and television episodes...but who really cares?? When's the last time you couldn't wait to watch a Mickey Mouse cartoon/movie? So Mickey doesn't have that many memorable moments in television and film, which causes a big blow to Mickey's ego. But Mickey has a solid group of followers, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, which helps Mickey out in the long run, because he knows who his friends are...Bugs doesn't. Mickey strikes me as a family man...he's been dating Minnie Mouse for I dunno how long, AND he owns Pluto as a pet (which if I was Pluto, I would be pissed...cause Goofy is a dog, and he's gallivanting around on two legs and talking and not being owned by anybody). Mickey is pretty much considered the CEO of Disney World AND Disneyland...and when you compare Six Flags to Disney...Disney owns the amusement park crown (except Epcot...fuck Epcot). So the mild mannered and meek mouse just might be able to pull this off in the ultimate upset!

So in this life long controversy, who is gonna come out on top?? They may have appeared together on screen together in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but I could see through their acting...they hated each other. With that being said, along with the always having a plan, having the attitude, and having more memorable moments...Bugs Bunny takes down that red short wearing bitch, Mickey Mouse.
