* PieInTheFace: A gag in "Slick Hare" involved Bugs masquerading as a waiter, ordering Elmer Fudd to make pies. When Fudd would make the pie, Bugs would take it, leave, and immediately come back in, smacking Fudd in the face with the pie.
--> '''Bugs''': Your pie, sir.

** At the beginning of "Often an Orphan", Charile Dog sees a car coming up, then adopts PuppyDogEyes, remarking, "Big, soulful eyes routine. Gets 'em every time." However, the car passes by without notice. At the end of the cartoon, Porky [[ItMakesSenseInContext does the same thing]], ''and it worked for him''.

*** The first Looney Tune to use Porky in the drum was "Rover's Rival". Looney Tunes would go back to the self-writing That's all Folks! in 1946.

*** ''Invasion Of The Bunny Snatchers'' (1991, Ford, Lennon) has a premature "That's all Folks" which Bugs stops so the cartoon can continue. It ends with a very poor computer-animated Porky Pig attempting the drum ending tag--Bugs kicks it out and places the ''real'' Porky in the drum for the tag line.

"Looney Tunes", the generic term by which all Warners animation is now known and sold, is a brand name more than anything nowadays, but is most heavily associated with the "classic" theatrical shorts and only [[FanonDiscontinuity begrudgingly]] to what's been done to the characters since, e.g. [[Film/SpaceJam this]], [[Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction this]], [[WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes this]], and most emphatically [[WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed this]]. [[WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers This one's okay though.]] [[WesternAnimation/TazMania As is this.]] [[WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow And this one]] is growing on people. The Tunes have been the mascots of the Six Flags theme parks for years.

* CharacterFocus: Because he's a spotlight-stealer by nature (literally, [[TinyToonAdventures in one case]]), most adaptations post-1960 are less about the whole Looney Tunes ensemble and more about WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck finding himself!

** "You're a Horse's Ass" was used whenever a character realized they fell for a prank or were insulted. Appropriately, it was also used as the main theme for PrivateSnafu.

** PrivateSnafu certainly counts, as it is clearly set in the same universe as Looney Tunes.

** The PrivateSnafu shorts (and some of the WartimeCartoons in general) played up the wilder and violent elements of the series even more--the Snafu shorts, because they were privately screened for soldiers and thus avoided the scrutiny of the Hays Office, even get away with very risque content like a woman doing a striptease (and scantily dressed woman in general, something pretty uncommon in the main series Looney Tunes), some (mild) on-screen swearing, and other content that would never have been allowed in public theaters of the day. If Looney Tunes was TheSimpsons of it's time, then Snafu was practically their answer to SouthPark.
