Unless you grew up living under an Acme Anvil then you almost certainly spent much of your TV time watching the Warner Bros. Catoons known as Looney Tunes!
Starting out as Cartoon Shorts in movie theaters from 1930-1969, the shows grew in popularity when they began to air on network television in the 50's!
Many scenes were edited in the 70's over concerns over children's TV, removing scenes of violence and stunts that could be easily recreated by viewers - however we still got some hilarious action from this group of iconic toons!
Generations of kids were basically raised by these crazy characters and their adventures. Many of the characters had their own shows and it was common for them to make cameos on each other's shows, so you were never too far from seeing your favourite animated character again!
What's Up, Doc?
The Looney Tunes, a clever play on the words Looney Toons, is chock full of lovable characters and Bugs Bunny is easily one of the most recognisable!
Introduced in 1940 and usually being pursued by his archenemy, Elmer Fudd the hunter, Bugs is a grey and white rabbit who walks on his hind legs and speaks in a Mid-Atlantic accent!
He even became the mascot for the Warner Bros. Company!
Elmer Fudd loves Hunting Wabits - and swapping his L's and R's for W's! The pair's relationship is a never ending game of cat and mouse, in an episode named 'What's Opera, Doc', he finally gets the better of Bugs Bunny and ends up feeling bad about it!
