** ''VideoGame/BugsBunnyLostInTime'' and ''VideoGame/BugsBunnyAndTazTimeBusters'' for the [=PS1=] and PC are great ''Rayman 2''-esque 3D Platformers which are very fun and capture the style of the show perfectly, and were also very well received (Moreso Lost in Time).
** Along with the Genesis games ''Desert Demolition'' and ''Double Trouble'', Sunsoft did fun platformers for the SNES (''Videogame/RoadRunnersDeathValley'', ''Videogame/DaffyDuckInTheMarvinMissions'', ''Videogame/BugsBunnyRabbitRampage'') and a serviceable Videogame/NBAJam-esque game, ''Looney Tunes B-Ball''.

** Another case is Bugs' reference to Elmer as "a poor little Nimrod." It was originally a sarcastic reference to a king mentioned in Literature/TheBible as a mighty hunter. However, between the king's relative obscurity (some interpretations place Nimrod at the center of prominent events like the building of the Tower of Babel, but there is dispute on those) and the fact that Bugs is being obviously insulting, most people think that "nimrod" is generally used to mean "stupid" rather than "capable hunter," and, just like above, most people aren't even aware that calling Elmer "Nimrod" is supposed to be a joke.

** Amusingly, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4U89w3k547k&feature=youtu.be this video]] handles the problem. [[note]]The video only includes shorts from 1930 to 1969, and none of the Snafu shorts.[[/note]]

** Cecil Turtle isn't very well beloved to those who believe his victories over Bugs to be unearned. Perhaps in response to this, he's depicted as an outright villain in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''.

** When Bugs Bunny first said, "What's up, Doc?" in the 1940 short, ''A Wild Hare'', it was a shock in ways modern audiences simply can't imagine or appreciate. In 1940, audiences saw the hunter (Elmer Fudd, of course), heard the hunter say he was hunting wabbits (er, rabbits), and then they saw the rabbit. 1940 audiences were expecting that rabbit to scream, run, pick a fight, play dead, anything except strike up a casual conversation with the guy trying to kill him. So, when Bugs did that, he brought the house down - a response that led to it becoming his CatchPhrase. Nowadays, not only does nobody find, "What's up, Doc?" funny, most people don't even realize it was ever supposed to be funny in the first place. It's just that thing Bugs always says in [[OnceAnEpisode every freakin' cartoon he's in.]]

** The theme songs for the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were actually not made for them, but were originally standalone songs, ''The Merry Go Round Broke Down'' and ''Merrily We Roll Along'', but because of them being the themes of both series for decades and heard virtually nowhere else, they will ''always'' be associated with the Looney Tunes franchise.

* CommonKnowledge: Creator/MelBlanc, as talented as he is, didn't voice every Looney Tunes character as is occasionally claimed. The series had a wide range of voice actors, but most of them went uncredited (June Foray, who voiced most lady characters like Granny and Witch Hazel, was usually the only other one whose name appeared in the credits, and even then, not until the early 1960s when the restrictions on voice actor credits eased up a bit).
** Also of note, although not as recognized, is that WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, despite being the FaceOfTheBand when it comes to the Looney Tunes cast, was ''not'' the leading star of the franchise at first; that role was previously assumed by WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, who in turn took that role from WesternAnimation/PorkyPig, who in turn took that role from Buddy, who in turn took that role from WesternAnimation/BoskoTheTalkInkKid.

* WeirdAlEffect: A lot of the characters (particularly Pepe Le Pew and Foghorn Leghorn) are based on near-obscure celebrities that people these days wouldn't recognize without thinking of the Looney Tunes. Pepe Le Pew is based on French actor [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Boyer Charles Boyer]], while Foghorn Leghorn is based on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senator_Claghorn Fred Allen's "Senator Claghorn" character]]

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The Looney Tunes racing game for the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast, which was very well received. ''Desert Demolition'' and ''Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble'' are also fairly liked.

* FandomBerserkButton: The easiest way to annoy fans of the series is to misspell it as Looney ''Toons''; ironically, even some official art or descriptions make this mistake.
