The Postal Service will issue commemorative stamps celebrating Bugs Bunny’s 80th birthday on Monday, July 27.

USPS and Warner Bros. Consumer Products will dedicate the stamps during a virtual ceremony that day, which marks the 80th anniversary of Bugs Bunny’s official screen debut.

The character has always been known for his impeccable impersonations and his masterful masquerades, so the soon-to-be-revealed 10 designs on the 20-stamp pane will each showcase a costumed Bugs Bunny in some of his most memorable getups.

The stamp artwork is based on Bugs Bunny’s iconic moments and was created especially for USPS by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., featuring work from Warner Bros. Animation artists, who also created the sketches on the reverse side of the stamp pane.

Greg Breeding designed the stamps, while William J. Gicker served as art director.

Customers can pre-order the stamps at beginning Monday, June 29.

Stay tuned for a sneak peek of the stamps at the USPS Facebook page. For details about the virtual dedication ceremony, go to
