Looney Tunes Series

On May 22, 1997, the USPS issued the first stamp in the Looney Tunes Series, honoring Bugs Bunny.

The Bugs Bunny stamp was issued in conjunction with a campaign to launch the USPS’s “Stampers” program.  As the official mascot of Stampers, it was hoped the animated character would help revive youth interest in the hobby of stamp collecting.  A full-color, 12-page magazine was made available through the USPS Philatelic Fulfillment Service Center for a limited time, as part of the Stampers program.

When the Bugs Bunny stamp was announced, many people were unhappy about picturing an animated character on a stamp.  They felt Bugs was too commercial and honoring him would cheapen America’s stamp program.  One newspaper editor wrote the stamp was “a new low in commercializing and trivializing [the Postal Service’s] once high-minded stamp program.”  But a US Postal Service official replied that Bugs was a “unique part of American history.”

Despite the controversy behind the stamp, the USPS issued it on May 22, 1997.  The Bugs Bunny sheet broke new ground in several categories.  It was the first self-adhesive sheet produced in the US.  And Bugs Bunny received a lot of attention for being the first cartoon character on a US stamp.  The stamps proved to be so popular that a series of four other Looney Tunes characters in the same format followed.
