Bugs is our "every man" type....Mickey,and I like Mickey,is the "Happy Go Lucky" one. Some days I definitely feel more like Bugs. Smile

I grew up on Bugs and the Looney Tunes gang and to me they still represent the Gold Standard of cartoon comedy.

I'm not a Disney hater (save almost everything done after the early 60's), but it's more what Mickey represents compared to what Bugs represents for us all. :P

That's pretty much what I thought you meant, hence the karma. I don't hate Mickey either, but if I had to vote between Mickey and Bugs as an American spokes-toon, Bugs would certainly get mine.

lol.. OK, Now, I'm saying wait, what..? 

Which part?

Another amazing Daffy episode from the 40's. Daffy toons from the 40's were quite different than those from the 50's where he was the target of Bugs. This one is not a well-known one, which is surprising considering how hilarious it is.

You should seek out Looney Tunes Golden Collection. It's quite a few volumes. I don't have any, but I've been thinking of starting to collect them. From what I can see, it is about as complete a collection of all the classics, unedited, as you're likely to find.

The Golden Collection sets are fantastic!  While they haven't even come close to getting them all out there yet, the ones that they've released look the best that they have (or at least that I've seen) and the are loaded down with special features.  I also like that, while indiviidual discs within the sets are sometimes devoted to a single character or pairing, each overall set provides a pretty wide variety.  Now, I think they're also putting them out on blu ray...

I've always loved the song he sings at the start of that.  I haven't watched that episode in at least a decade and I can still remember the words to it.

I grew up on Looney Tunes. Daffy Duck is my favorite of them all. Marvin the Martian is up there too.

Why didn't Pete Puma not have more than one appearance?
 He made only one appearance in  the original shorts-1952-after that-no more. Too bad. He was hilarious.

That's a great one. WB would try out certain characters and some would stick and some wouldn't. It's not unlike Beaky Buzzard who appeared in a few:

Actually, what's funny too is that, until you said it, I assumed he was definitely in quite a few of the shorts.  I guess that goes to show the impression that he made!

Well, Bugs is a wise guy/teenager, whereas, Mickey is child- like/kid, so I don't see how the two can be compared?

Bugs, at least in the hands of Chuck Jones, Tex Avery, Friz Freleng, Frank Tashlin, Bob Clampett and the like, is a real living, breathing character.
Mickey was always a corporate mascot from the very beginning. At best, a framing device for funnier and more interesting characters.

Coporate  mascot?   Question  Walt Disney's creations early  on were not part of any corporate  scheme, but, rather  an attempt to break  away from the  then corporate  control of Universal, Walt  Disney and  I think the name was Ub Werks?  In any event, Bugs has long ago become a corporate  mascot selling everything from War  Bonds to kids  sneakers

Disney was kindof forced into using mickey as a mascot.  He wanted to make cartoons that didn't star Mickey (like The Skeleton Dance), but no one would buy them.  To get people to buy them he added "Mickey Mouse presents" to the title card.

Mickey had more personality in his early shorts.  Once he became popular they toned it down to avoid offending people.
