Anyone for the coyote?  Always frustrated?

My personal favorite:  Bugs Bunny, because he's such a self-confident (cocky, even) smart arse.

I also liked Tweety.  Small and very cute, but certainly not harmless.  He could definitely outwit and wreak serious havoc on that "bad ol' puddy tat!"

I like Bugs because he's witty, charming and a smart alek.  But I also love Daffy Duck because he's wild and zany; esp the episodes where he bounces all over the place screaming "Hoo hoo, hoo hoo, hoo hoo!"  Probably because I'm goofy myself, but that always makes me chuckle.

Definitely Daffy Duck.  I especially love the episode where Elmer Fudd is going to shoot either Bugs or Daffy and he gets into "pronoun trouble".  Bugs Bunny is so mean to Daffy. Tongue

I can honestly say that poor Wile E. Coyote was my favorite character. It wasn't until I was much older that I realized the irony behind his antics. Everything he buys ends up backfiring on him in some way shape or form. This in itself isn't all that interesting, but everything he buys is labeled ACME. Since ACME relates to being the pinnacle or best of the best, it is always quite ironic that none of his plans ever work.

Daffy Duck, hands down.

I especially love it when his beak gets twisted around to the back of his head.

And, of course, there's one of my favorite cartoon lines ever: "You're dethpicable!"

Bugs will always rule, but I always liked him a lot better when he's paired up with Yosemite Sam.

Sam: "Start walking ya doggone long-eared galoot!"

Bugs: "Hey wait a minute! Dem's fightin' woids! I dare ya to step ovuh dis line!"

"Now I dare ya to step ovuh dis one...dis one....dis one..."

Finally Sam falls off a cliff. Bugs rushes down the mountain and puts a mattress down.

Bugs: "Y'know sometimes me conscience kinda bodders me.....

Pulls the mattress away

And to remember all the nefarious pranks Bugs pulled on the lovable doofus Elmer Fudd--all in the name of self defense, of course.  Those two clips set to music from the Barber of Seville ("The Rabbit of Seville") and from a collection of Richard Wagner's operas ("What's Opera, Doc?") will always stand out in my mind as venerable classics.  (Imagine Elmer Fudd dressed up as a Viking and singing his ditty "Kill the wabbit!" to the tune of Wagner's Ride of the Valkyrie.)

I always found it fantastic that these classic cartoons were set to classical music. It really instilled in the kids an appreciation for great art.

Bugs is to the Looney Tunes universe what Batman is to DC- Not only the best character on his own, but the one with the most interesting Rogues Gallery. Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, the Gremlin (one of the few to put Bugs in the pursuer role), Rocky and Mugsy, Marvin the Martian, Gossamer (the big, red, hairy monster), Daffy (Rabbit season!), Hugo the Abominable Snowman- the list goes on.

That said, I was always partial to Pepe. He really turned the standard Looney Tunes chase format on its head.

Really? Why? I mean, "Der Fuehrer's Face" was pretty funny, but I've always found Warner Bros. animation superior, at least in terms of cartoon shorts. It's really tough to pick one favorite. I'll probably say Wile E. Coyote. His fall from grace from a stuck-up self-identified genius with a clearly fake British accent in his early Bugs Bunny cartoons to a sympathetically unlucky and completely silent predator in his better known Roadrunner material is fun to think about, and it gives him nice diversity that other characters may lack.

The old Disney cartoons just seem really more 'down-home' and realistic to me, like the animation and plotlines really capture the simple, American dream life that we all strive for. I cannot really describe it, it is just that the Disney cartoons seemed so much simpler, yet amazing to me and portrayed a very friendly, appealing way of life. They also seemed more creative to me since a lot of them had to do with social issues or jokes in society at the time, like the World War II propoganda episodes. I think that my all time favorite episode is 'Commando Duck' or something where Donald Duck is a commando that gets stuck in the middle of Japan. I also find that the Huey Duey and Louie Donald Duck episodes were always very amazing.

Looney Tunes also provided commentary on the war!

Hmm, maybe there's a good reason they don't show those cartoons very often today.

Hmmm, I think you have your eras mixed up. WWII and thereabouts the WB cartoons were hands down the best satirical and political commentaries. Disney's cartoons of the period were just plain boring (save Donald Duck- his Hulk-like rages were sweetness). Now, '80s through early '90s era Disney cartoons (Ducktales, Rescue Rangers, Tale Spin, and Darkwing Duck) were what made getting home from school worth it, though Tiny Toons tried. Disney continued its dominance until WB released Animaniacs and the Pinky and the Brain spin-off- since then Disney hasn't released any cartoon shows worth watching (at least not until they recently bought out Marvel Comics and released a very good Avengers cartoon) and the only WB cartoons worth watching have had the word "Batman" in the title.

I would have to disagree with you guys. I've watched the war/political cartoons from both sides and I think that Disney reigns supreme over WB. this right here hands down deficates on every WB war cartoon ever made. I was literally laughing throughout the entire cartoon. Also, while Donald Duck may have been the greatest of the characters, he was not the only good Disney cartoon character from that era. Goofy and Mickey Mouse also had their golden moments. Also, some of my favorites. The Old Army Game and Sky Trooper. Donald Duck contemplating suicide to me was one of the darkest, most frightening yet hilarious Disney moments of all time.

Hey, how come no one's mentioned Porky Pig?  "Th-th-th-that's all folks!"

I always found Porky to be a most valuable supporting character like when he matched wits with Daffy in sharing a hotel room in "Daffy Duck slept Here" or when with sylvester as a fraidy cat staying in an old west ghost town hotel etc. I guess my favorite is the Daffy of the 1940s era (altough I like the Chuck Jones character too but not as much).
