My Favorite Looney Tunes Characters Of All Time
The Looney Tunes cartoons are arguably some of the most classic and hilarious cartoons ever made. Even as I write this, it’s hard to formulate any original descriptive material to the iconic animated series. I suppose they just remind me of a simpler time in my life — full of bliss and wonder. It’s difficult to narrow down my favorite characters but here’s my best shot.
4. Wile E. Coyote
I constantly wondered if the coyote would ever catch the Roadrunner — now I have my answer. As a kid, you would think that all of his ridiculous fails would’ve convinced me otherwise. I especially love the episode when Wile E. tries to catch and eat Bugs Bunny. He claims to be a genius and then Bugs just effortlessly bests him during every single attempt to catch him. That’s just truly hilarious!
3. Sylvester The Cat
Very similar to Wile E. Coyote, Sylvester’s never -ending quest to catch Tweety Bird just hits my funny bone every time. Of course, the more he fails the funnier it becomes. My absolute favorite episodes of Sylvester are when he’s trying to look brave in front of his son by fighting what he thinks is a giant moose, but in reality, it’s actually a kangaroo. He goes through all kinds of shenanigans when trying to take it down and it’s really something to watch!
2. Foghorn Leghorn
Foghorn Leghorn is so hilarious, it’s difficult for me to refrain from making him my favorite. From his funny accent to his outrageous demeanor, this character is just downright funny. I love when he tries to give advice to little Henery Hawk only to be bested by him later in the episode. The altercations that occur between him and Barnyard Dawg are just too funny for words. Leghorn’s overall cheery mood and wisecracks are a real joy to watch.
1. Bugs Bunny
Bugs Bunny takes all the marbles in my book! He always seems to escape certain capture when you least expect it no matter who it’s from. He’s escaped from Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Wile E. Coyote and many others. I can’t describe the excitement I feel when I hear that famous question, “What’s up, doc?” His funny demeanor and his snarky comebacks are absolutely hysterical! Of course, who can forget Bugs in Space Jam, the movie that stars Michael Jordan. Honestly, who wouldn’t love a movie that features both the best cartoon character and the best basketball player ever? Hopefully Bugs Bunny will continue to make kids laugh for many more years to come.
The fact that I find all the Looney Tunes characters hilarious in some way, shape, or form is what made this list of favorites so difficult to make, but it had to be done for the purposes of your enjoyment. Looney Tunes is a major part of American TV history, so much so that they even revive the series from time to time like Warner Brothers did in 2011 to 2013 with the production of the Looney Tunes Show.
