I like good old Daffy too. The Tex Avery cartoons were his best IMO. He was a complete screwball then. Far better than the Chuck Jones version.
Daffy singing "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" from the 1939 short "Daffy Duck and Egghead":

Australian pay TV has a channel called Boomerang. It basically consists of all those brilliant shows from ages ago like The Flinstones, Yogi Bear and Looney Tunes. It's always great to go from the latest retarded reality show to the classic scenario of Bugs Bunny getting one over on Elmer Fudd.
Also the Bugs Bunny propganda short against the japanese was called 'Bugs nips the Nips'.

I watch that station often. It's Cartoon Network's sister station. Doesn't show Looney Tunes in US though.

So, anybody watched any good Looney Tunes lately? I just got through watching a couple of Road Runner/Coyote shorts on Youtube. Great stuff. I might just have to see if I can find one of the LT DVD collections the next time I go to the store.

That Road Runner stuff is brilliant. I really like the one where Wile-E tries to mess with Buggs Bunny for a change

Coyote is DA MAN! The best Warner character, followed close by Sylvester.

For those who haven't seen it, I strongly suggest tracking down "Rabbit Seasoning" right now. It's the best cartoon ever.

.....That's nothing compared to what they did to my relatives. I'm told that one of my grandparent's whole family was massacred by the Japanese. (They are Chinese.) This short is no less offensive than the one about the Nazi's. That one had Hitler eating a rug! If it wasn't for the fact that he is a known devil today, people would be offended by it. But people forget that the Japanese tortured and killed way more people than the Nazi's did.
I have nothing against modern Japanese. They have definitely been reformed; but that short was devised in the days when the Japanese soldiers were terrorizing the Pacific. Context needs to be kept in mind. (Course, my dad and my grandparents still didn't/don't like the Japanese way after the war.)

I can't believe that I've failed to mention Foghorn Leghorn. Definitely one of my top three favorite Looney Tune characters ever.

Foghorn Leghorn is brilliant. He's definitely one of the best characters out of the Looneyverse.
And has anyone here seen any of "The Banned Eleven"? The eleven cartoons that due to offensive stereotypes and themes being so interwoven into the plot that it was impossible to censor them so they were removed from circulation by Warner Brothers. I recommend tracking one down and watching it if you want an education into american cinema history.

I've seen several Censored Eleven shorts before. Bugs Bunny had one called "All This And Rabbit Stew".
