>The first of two laugh-filled events comes Wednesday, with Happy Birthday, Bugs: 50 Looney Years (CBS, May 9, 8 P.M. ET), as Bugs Bunny hits the half-century mark. A host of old friends (Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam) and new (Hulk Hogan, Debbie Gibson) help, as Elmer Fudd would say, "that wascally wabbit cewebwate." The show also contains a tribute to the late Mel Blanc. On Saturday (May 12, 8 P.M. ET) Robin Williams, Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg will again host Comic Relief on HBO. A parade of comedians, including Richard Lewis and Louie Anderson, will perform to benefit the homeless.
