‘Bugs Bunny’ - I Wanna’ Easter Egg

The 'Easter Bunny' is a legendary egg-giving symbol of new life:

People around the world follow the tradition of coloring eggs and giving baskets of candy.

In a time of celebration and feasting, many traditional 'Easter' games and customs developed, including egg rolling, egg tapping and egg decorating.

British chocolate company Cadbury manufactured their first 'Easter Egg' in 1875.

"Easter Yeggs", starring 'Bugs Bunny' and 'Elmer Fudd' is a "Looney Tunes" animated short, directed by Robert McKimson, released theatrically June 28, 1947.

"Easter Yeggs" story is by Warren Foster, with layouts by Cornett Wood and backgrounds by Richard H. Thomas. 
Voices are by Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan as 'Elmer Fudd'.

The title is a play on 'Easter eggs' and on 'yegg', a slang term for a burglar or safecracker.
