The CD Image contains GypPlay along with some Public Domain cartoons featuring Bugs Bunny. Bugs Bunny was created in 1940 by Tex Avery, by 1942 the cartoon rabbit had become the number one star of the 'Merrie Melodies' series, now he's famous for being one of the main stars of the 'Looney Tunes', and today he is the corporate mascot for Warner Brothers. Several classic cartoon shorts have lapsed into the public domain, a few of these feature the 'Wabbit' himself, the cartoons date back to the 1940's, and can now be enjoyed on your Dreamcast.
