[[folder:Major Characters]]

-> "''Th-th-th-ThatsAllFolks!''"

TheEveryman and StraightMan to the rest of the cast, known for his [[PorkyPigPronunciation ridiculously thick stutter]]. Often played a DeadpanSnarker or ButtMonkey, usually when paired with Daffy (either role [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on the latter's interpretation]])

'''Debut:''' "I Haven't Got a Hat" (1935), Creator/FrizFreleng

'''Tropes related to Porky Pig:'''
* See WesternAnimation/PorkyPig.

-> "''You're despicable!''"/"''WOO HOO, HOO HOO!!!''"

Was originally [[ScrewySquirrel The Screwball]][=/=]{{Cloudcuckoolander}}, later {{Flanderiz|ation}}ed by Creator/ChuckJones (and Creator/FrizFreleng) into a {{jerkass}} SmallNameBigEgo, most famously paired with Bugs as the OddCouple. In this incarnation, used either as a foil for Bugs or to parody action-adventure heroes. Meanwhile, Creator/RobertMcKimson [[CompositeCharacter combined the two interpretations]] and made Daffy into a LoveableRogue. Later also joined Sylvester on the hunt for Speedy Gonzales.

'''Debut:''' "Porky's Duck Hunt" (1937), Creator/TexAvery

* See WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck.

!!Elmer Fudd
-> "''Be vewwy, vewwy quiet! I'm hunting wabbits!''"

One of only three humans in the regular cast (the others being Yosemite Sam & Tweety's owner Granny). The ButtMonkey, often TooDumbToLive. An avid hunter, thus Jones' favorite adversary for both Bugs & Daffy, reaching a peak in the iconic Rabbit Season trilogy. Less popular with the other directors, who found him too wimpy. On a side note, he had an earlier, [[FlatCharacter less distinctive prototype]] named Egghead, who was sometimes referred to as Elmer.

On a side note, [[PopculturalOsmosis he didn't appear as often as most people think]]--in fact, he only appeared in about 36 of the original Bugs Bunny cartoons (although he did star in many other character shorts, along with several of his own solo appearances).

'''Debut:''' "Elmer's Candid Camera" (1940), Jones.

'''Tropes related to Elmer Fudd:'''
* {{Adorkable}}: Sometimes has shades of this, especially when [[FoeYay he falls for Bugs]] [[DisguisedInDrag in drag.]]
* AffablyEvil: Generally nice guy when not trying to blast (not-so-) innocent animals with his shotgun.
* AntiVillain
* ArchEnemy: BugsBunny
* ArtEvolution: His early Egghead look, plus his very brief change into a very obese design, before they settled into his standard look.
* ButtMonkey: Even outside antagonist roles his abuse never ends.
* CatchPhrase: "Shhh- be vewy vewy quiet. I'm hunting wabbits."
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Though later shorts established him as a vegetarian, "Easter Yeggs" featured him attempting to cook Bugs into a stew.
* CharlieBrownBaldness
* TheChessmaster: If one is to believe the theory that he [[ObfuscatingInsanity faked insanity]] so he wouldn't get arrested for tax evasion in "Hare Brush". His final line to [[BreakingTheFourthWall the audience supports this]]: "I may be a scwewy, scwewy wabbit, but I'm not going to Alcatwaz!"
* {{Determinator}}
* TheDitz
** GeniusDitz: See HiddenDepths below.
* ElmuhFuddSyndwome: Trope Namer.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In '''Fresh Hare'', one of his earlier appearances, he's an RCMP constable, and is chasing Bugs. At the end, he catches Bugs, who is then tried for several serious crimes and sentanced to death. Elmer asks Bugs what he wants, and he says "I wish..." and [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment the entire scene turns into a blackfaced minstrel of "I wish I Was in Dixie]]. Though not part of the "Censored Eleven," the ending is often censored in syndication.
* TheEveryman: Seemed to replace Porky in this role in the fifties and sixties shorts.
* HarmlessVillain
* HiddenDepths: Who would have guessed that the same Elmer Fudd that seemingly can't tell the difference between an actual woman and Bugs Bunny in a dress [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2auI6Uz3D8I was an expert in economics]]? [[note]]At least, when ExecutiveMeddling brought on by RedScare forced him to be.[[/note]] In TinyToonAdventures, outside of being a teacher at Acme Looniversity he also shows up in a several episodes as MrExposition including, in one case, an expert in seismology.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: But of course.
* IdiotBall: Granted, [[TooDumbToLive he is not a very bright character to begin with]], but he reaches his peak in the "Rabbit Season" trilogy where he is a complete airhead.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: This is pretty much Elmer Fudd's reaction whenever he thinks he's finally killed Bugs. No matter how hard he's been trying throughout the episode to shoot Bugs he always breaks down in tears when he thinks he's finally done it, calling himself a murderer. [[FridgeLogic Which calls into question why he's a hunter in the first place]].
** About Elmer being a hunter despite feeling sorry for the animals he killed: in "Rabbit Fire," it was established that Elmer is a vegetarian and he hunts for the sport of it.
*** Granted Elmer's usual "kill" amounts to shooting Daffy's bill off, his victim usually unharmed outside being somewhat annoyed.
* NiceHat
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Had occasional GenreSavvy moments that took even Bugs by surprise. He's outrighted defeated him twice over. Heck, in "Quack Shot", he was actually on top of his game against nearly everything Daffy threw at him.
* ObfuscatingInsanity: ''Hare Brush'. Fudd, head of a major corporation, is in a mental hospital because he thinks he's a rabbit. He lures Bugs into taking his place, who is put in hypnotherapy and starts to think he's Elmer. The cartoon ends with Bugs-as-Elmer being arrested for tax evasion, and Elmer [[BreakingTheFourthWall says to the audience]] "I may be a scwewy wabbit, but I'm not going to [[TheAlcatraz Alcatwaz]]!"
* SignatureLaugh: "Hehehehe".
* SmartBall: He is oddly GenreSavvy in "Quack Shot", where he is ahead in Daffy's game several times.
-->'''Daffy''': Smartypants.
* SpeechImpediment
* TeamRocketWins: [[spoiler: Actually got his revenge on "that wascawy wabbit" in ''Rabbit Rampage'' and ''Hare Brush''. And then there's ''What's Opera, Doc?'', wherein he [[OnlyMostlyDead seemingly]] ''kills'' Bugs.]]
* TooDumbToLive
* TookALevelInBadass: During the mid-50's, became quite a bit more crafty and smart than before.
* VillainousUnderdog: A particularly infamous (and unintentional) case, since he was so meek and incompetent against Bugs Bunny that even some of the Warner Bros creative team started to think Bugs was coming across more as a petty bully than a defensive trickster. As such the series went through a long list of more challenging opponents to rectify this, though almost all of them still fit this trope.
* WealthyYachtOwner: In the episode "Hare Brush" he's is a millionaire who "owns a mansion and a yacht". This becomes a hypnotic mantra a psychologist has him repeat after he has a mental breakdown and thinks he's a rabbit.

-> "''Eehhh... What's up, Doc?''"

The - well, the Bugs Bunny. No description needed.

'''Debut:''' "AWildHare" (1940), various, notably Creator/TexAvery.

'''Tropes related to Bugs Bunny:'''
* See WesternAnimation/BugsBunny and KarmicTrickster.

!![[WesternAnimation/SylvesterTheCatAndTweetyBird Tweety Bird]]
-> "''I tawt I taw a puddy tat!''"

In Clampett's hands, Tweety was a pink, sadistic trickster who used his wits to get rid of cats. Later, under Freleng, Tweety became yellow ([[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode the Hays Office]] balked because the pink made him look naked), found a recurring adversary in Sylvester, and often depended on an umbrella-wielding Granny or an angry bulldog to get rid of him. Time has made modern generations mistake him for a female.

'''Debut:''' "A Tale of Two Kitties" (1942), Clampett.

'''Tropes related to Tweety Bird:'''
* ArchEnemy: Sylvester
* BabyTalk: He talks like this because he is supposed to be a baby bird.
* BadassAdorable
* BewareTheNiceOnes: ''Film/SpaceJam'' even demonstrated that he can still slip into this time and time again.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Cute little tweety bird on the outside, sadistic KarmicTrickster on the inside (though as time progressed, [[CharacterizationMarchesOn his innocence seemed to become more genuine.]])
* CatchPhrase: "Dat bad old puttytat!"
** "I tawt I taw a puttytat!"
** "I did, I did! I did saw a puttytat!"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the Clampett shorts he was a very aggressive character who tries anything to foil his foe, even kicking his enemy when he is down. Freleng turned him into a into a cutesy bird who often depended on Granny to be saved from Sylvester.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild[=/=]TheFakeCutie: "Aw, da poor puddy tat. He faw down an' go Boom!" This, after carefully arranging poor Sylvester's defeat.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: He's a guy, but the high-pitched voice and eyelashes often leads to ViewerGenderConfusion, especially in foreign dubs where he is often voiced by a woman (while in English his voice was provided by a man, Mel Blanc). The existence of a short called ''[[PunBasedTitle Ain't She Tweet]]'' probably doesn't help any.
* HeroAntagonist
* HiddenDepths: Despite Tweety becoming softer, fans still speculate that he's still a sadistic being on the inside who takes pleasure in seeing Sylvester get hurt.
* InnocentBlueEyes
* InvincibleHero: Though he had a slightly more vulnerable streak than most other WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes protagonists, he was one of very few to come out the victor in ''every'' appearance he made.
* {{Jerkass}}: In Clampett cartoons, pre-BadassDecay.
** TookALevelInKindness: Though he somewhat kept his malicious side even in later cartoons. See HiddenDepths and DeliberatelyCuteChild.
* KillerRabbit: In his first cartoons, where he was as cute as violent and sadistic, bordering on CuteIsEvil.
* MyNameIsNotShazam: His first pairing with Sylvester is called ''[[PunBasedTitle Tweety Pie]]'', leading some viewers to (mistakenly) assume that's the character's full name.
* PingPongNaivete: One of Tweety's charms was that you could never tell whether he defeated Sylvester via ObfuscatingStupidity or inadvertantly through genuine child-like naïveté and dumb luck.
* PintSizedPowerHouse: In his earlier cartoons.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter

A FunnyForeigner and HandsomeLech said to be the most foul smelling skunk in the world - or to his own kind, the best smelling - completely oblivious to his body odor problem... and thus to why all the beautiful 'young ladies' keep running from him in disgust.

His official pairing is now known as Penelope Pussycat, and she often has the misfortune of having a white stripe painted down her back, making Pepe go quite wild for her. It also seems that when he douses his foul scent and covers his white stripe [[ItMakesSenseInContext (or accidentally paints himself blue)]], she can go quite wild over him, making him quite the ChickMagnet.

'''Debut:''' "Odor-able Kitty" (1945), Jones.

'''Tropes related to Pepe [=LePew=]:'''
* See WesternAnimation/PepeLePew

!![[WesternAnimation/SylvesterTheCatAndTweetyBird Sylvester J. Cat]]
-> "''Sufferin' succotash!''"

A cat with a speech impediment who usually tries to eat Tweety or Speedy Gonzales, with little success. One of the most versatile of the ensemble, prone to neuroses and usually the star of the comic melodramas. In Robert [=McKimson's=] hands, slobby Sylvester has a hyper-articulate son named Sylvester Jr., whom Dad tries to impress by chasing what turns out to be a baby kangaroo into another room; when he retreats gibbering at the 'giant mouse!' Junior is mortified. On a side note, he was technically a creation of Creator/BobClampett's unit, as evidenced by him appearing in one of Clampett's last theatrical cartoons, "Kitty Kornered". Obviously, Freleng's take on Sylvester is the one everybody remembers.

'''Debut:''' "Life With Feathers" (1945), Freleng.

'''Tropes related to Sylvester J. Cat:'''
* AnthropomorphicShift: One-time example in "WesternAnimation/TheScarletPumperNickel"; Sylvester as the Grand Duke is a full-blown FunnyAnimal.
* AffablyEvil: A vicious predator, but a loving father to Sylvester Jr, and with often the same [[GoKartingWithBowser on-off friendly banter towards his prey]] as the rest of the RoguesGallery. He also occasionally goes through [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the same pangs of conscience as Elmer]] when he thinks he has succeeded in killing them.
* AntiVillain
* ArchEnemy: Tweety.
* BumblingDad: He means well, but his general clumsiness and ineptitude is the cause of Sylvester Jr.'s embarrassment.
* ButtMonkey: Claimed fewer victories than even Elmer or post-Flanderized Daffy.
* CatchPhrase: "Sufferin' succotash."
* CatsAreMean: Though granted it rarely went outside a cat's natural instincts for food, and it doesn't stop [[DesignatedHero sadistic birds, mice and dogs]] [[DesignatedVillain abusing him beyond (or sometimes even without) provocation]] (eg. ''Canned Feud'', ''Scaredy Cat'').
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Several of his earlier cartoons saw him as a lot more mischievous and hyperactive, with one cartoon (''Doggone Cats'') even playing him as a ScrewySquirrel character similar to Bugs and Daffy in their earlier days.
* CoolCat: He occasionally plays with this, particularly in cartoons where Tweety isn't involved.
* {{Determinator}}
* HarmlessVillain
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* LaserGuidedKarma: While hopeless at catching prey like Tweety and Speedy, there are odd cases where Sylvester is forced to protect his potential prey, at which point he is often quite competent (eg. ''A Mouse Divided'', ''Father of the Bird''). He is still usually robbed of a full victory at the end of it though. Such cases also often double as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* SpeciesSurname
* SpeechImpediment: "Thufferin' Thuccotatch!"
* SuddenlyVoiced: Inverted. He could usually speak (albeit with his famous speech impediment), but a few Chuck Jones-directed cartoons cast him as Porky's pet, and in these he was a HeroicMime.
** His speaking role seemed to depend on character; since he was classified as a pet, he usually did not communicate with owners or humans but could make conversations with fellow pet-classified animals like Tweety. For other animals with more human roles like Daffy and Porky it was free-game and DependingOnTheWriter (though mute in ''Scaredy Cat'' and its followups, Sylvester spoke normally to Porky in ''Kitty Cornered'' and ''The Scarlet Pumpernickel'', for example).
* SuperPersistentPredator
* TeamRocketWins: With some assistance from Speedy Gonzales, Sylvester chalks up a win in "A Message to Gracias."
** He successfully eats an AssholeVictim parrot in "Catch As Cats Can" and holds ground in Porky's house in "Kitty Cornered". He also gets the last laugh in "Back Alley Oproar" and "Mouse Mazurka" (even if he ''literally'' has to [[DiedHappilyEverAfter kill himself in the process]]).
* VillainousUnderdog: While Sylvester certainly isn't weaker than Tweety, he's no match for [[NeverMessWithGranny Granny]] or [[AngryGuardDog Hector]] and has to find ways to sneak past them in order to get at the bird. That's without getting into his fights with WesternAnimation/SpeedyGonzales or Hippity Hopper.
* VillainProtagonist: In his shorts with Tweety, Hippity Hopper and Speedy.
* WellDoneDadGuy: Most of the episodes that featured Sylvester Jr. were focused around Sylvester trying to earn his son's respect with very little success.


A brash little outlaw with handlebar mustachios and a severe temper problem, introduced as 'a more WorthyOpponent' for Bugs than the meek Elmer. Said to be a caricature of his (short, brash, redheaded) creator. Introduced as a cowboy bandit, he eventually became the stock blowhard villain character: Civil War general, Viking, Pirate, The Black Knight (no Python references please), politician, an Arab sheik, etc. Oddly enough, he wears his bandit mask no matter what role he plays and normally lets out a burst of irate SymbolSwearing.

'''Debut:''' "Hare Trigger" (1945), Freleng.

'''Tropes related to Yosemite Sam:'''
* {{Angrish}}
* ArchEnemy: Bugs Bunny is this to him, but it doesn't work both ways (Bugs' arch-enemy being Elmer Fudd)
* {{Bandito}}: Sam appears as Mexican bandito 'Pancho Vanilla' in the SpeedyGonzales short "Pancho's Hideaway".
* BadBoss
* BadassBoast: At the start of almost every cartoon he's in.
* BadassMoustache: Yosemite Sam sports these, along with beard.
* CatchPhrase: "I hates rabbits."
* TheChewToy
* ADayInTheLimelight: ''Honey's Money'', the only short to feature Sam as the main protagonist and not contain any other Looney Tunes characters.
* {{Determinator}}
* EvilRedhead[=/=]FieryRedhead
* {{Expy}}: The Creator/DePatieFrelengEnterprises short ''Panchos Hideaway'' features the bandit Pancho Vanilla, in terms of personality, role and design, Pancho's largest differences are his darker facial hair and mexican accent.
* GlassCannon
* HairTriggerTemper
* HarmlessVillain : Ironically offered as little a challenge to Bugs as Elmer at times.
* HenpeckedHusband: In "Honey's Money".
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Deliberately zigzagged. While Sam is still a rather bumbling antagonist, he was designed to be a more belligerent and imposing foe for Bugs by Friz Freleng, who feared the more affable and pitiful Elmer Fudd made Bugs look like a non-defensive "bully".
* {{Jerkass}}: Was created largely to get the audience to root for Bugs.
* TheNapoleon
* NiceHat
* NoIndoorVoice
* RecycledINSPACE: Has appeared in almost every stock villain role throughout his run, albeit always maintaining his bandit mask and western dialect
** Literally in "Lighter Than Hare"
* WorthyOpponent: Created as a more formidable villain compared to Elmer, [[VillainDecay it didn't ''quite'' last however]].

-> "''What in tha- I say, what in the Sam Hill is goin' on here?''"

A loud, obnoxious rooster with a Southern accent, based on Fred Allen's 'Senator Claghorn' radio character. Considers himself the life of the party; demonstrates by tricking baby chickenhawks out of capturing him, abusing Mandrake the barnyard dog by whomping his ass with a wooden board and painting his tongue green, or babysitting a genius chick named Eggbert in order to cozy up to his widow hen mother.

'''Debut:''' "Walky Talky Hawky" (1946), [=McKimson=]

!!Tropes Related to Foggy:

* Tropes related to him can be found on the WesternAnimation/FoghornLeghorn page.

!!Marvin the Martian
-> "''I claim this planet in the name of Mars! Isn't that lovely?''"

An IneffectualSympatheticVillain who wants to see an EarthShatteringKaboom, and is the TropeNamer thereof (albeit invariably foiled by Bugs).

'''Debut:''' "Haredevil Hare" (1948), Jones.

'''Tropes related to Marvin the Martian:'''
* AdaptationalBadass: the video game LooneyTunesCollectorMartianAlert and its sequel Martian's Revenge actually depicted Marvin as much more competent and fearsome character.
* AffablyEvil: Marvin was originally conceived as the opposite of Yosemite Sam, so he's always been a quiet, reserved, polite character who can still pose a threat.
* AliensAreBastards: He was willing to [[EarthShatteringKaboom kill billions of lives]] ''just because the Earth was blocking his view of Venus.''
* AlliterativeName: '''M'''arvin the '''M'''artian.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Wants to blow up Earth because it's blocking his view of Venus. Ignoring the obvious joke about gender differences, destroying planets because they obstruct astronomic observation is presumably okay in Martian society.
* TheBadGuyWins: see "Team Rocket Wins" below
* BreakoutCharacter
* CatchPhrase: "This makes me very angry!"
** Also "Where's the kaboom? Where's the EarthShatteringKaboom?"
* {{Determinator}}
* TheFaceless
* FantasticRacism: Seems to have a subtle disdain towards Earthlings in general and will sometimes mock or condscend regarding our primitive nature.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Downplayed from both Elmer and Sam, but still, being a foil for Bugs, he inevitably fails miserably.
* NoNameGiven: He was unnamed in the original cartoons (the model sheets only giving him the moniker of "The Martian") but was officially named Marvin when he they started making merchandise of him.
* SoftSpokenSadist: To contrast with Yosemite Sam's bluster.
* TeamRocketWins: [[spoiler: Seemingly achieves his goal of detonating the Earth in the original full-version of ''Duck Dodgers and the Return of the 24th and a Half Century''. With Dodgers distracted from his duties and Earth's destruction almost certain, Marvin is left with no choice but to assure the viewers "it's only a cartoon"]].
* TranquilFury: Which goes with his AffablyEvil persona.
* TheStoic: "This makes me VERY angry."
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: Subverted; he has a wide range of facial expressions, despite repeatedly saying this trope word-for-word.
* WorthyOpponent: After Yosemite Sam failed to effectively challenge Bugs. Though still a hapless villain, he was ''slightly'' more formidable in that he has genuinely scared Bugs on occasion with his sheer casual destructiveness.

-> ''[[strike:[[BeamMeUpScotty "MEEP MEEP!"]]]]'' "''BEEP BEEP!''"

A speedy bird and the coyote who uses a variety of backfiring Acme Company traps and mail-order gadgets to try to catch him - 'try' being the operative word. The coyote was named when he had some cartoons facing off against Bugs instead of Roadrunner, where he became "Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius" - the Road Runner remains mute to this day (meep-meep!) as he is now the mascot for Time Warner Cable.

'''Debut:''' "Fast and Furry-ous" (1949), Jones.

'''Tropes related to Wile E. Coyote:'''
* AntiVillain
* ArchEnemy: Road Runner
* BadassAdorable: Inverted with Wile E., as he is [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain neither as threatening]], nor as cute, as real-life coyotes.
* BreakTheHaughty: In shorts where he faces off against Bugs Bunny. Each time he proudly announces at the beginning that he is a "Super-Genius." Always gets his comeuppance by the end, in one short declaring that "My name is Mud" and promptly keeling over unconscious.
* ButtMonkey
** IronButtMonkey: TropeCodifier.
* CatchPhrase: "Genius, pure genius!" in his shorts with Bugs.
* TheChewToy
* '''{{Determinator}}''': Big time.
* DitzyGenius
* EpicFail: Pretty much everything Coyote does ends in this. HilarityEnsues.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: When Bugs refuses his offer to get eaten, Wile E. comments of why does he wanted to do it the hard way.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Averted at the end of one or two episodes, though. See TeamRocketWins.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He first meets Bugs in a nice way, but tries to get him to say his prayers while the said meeting.
* GadgeteerGenius: if not for the fact that all of his constructions inevitably fail.
* HarmlessVillain
* InsufferableGenius: He acts as one in the shorts where he goes after Bugs Bunny. In theory, at least. In practice he's more of a SmallNameBigEgo.
* [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Ineffectual Sympathetic]] VillainProtagonist
* OhCrap: Practicaly his default facial expression.
* PunnyName: Wile E. (i.e., "wily") Coyote.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He likes to call himself "Wile E. Coyote: Genius" in the cartoons where he's up against Bugs.
* SpeciesSurname
* SuddenlyVoiced: When teamed up with Bugs Bunny (except ''Hare Breadth Hurry'', which otherwise plays like a traditional Road Runner short).
* SuperPersistentPredator
* TalkingWithSigns
* TeamRocketWins: Yes, the Coyote catches the Road Runner at one point...but he's too small at that point to even eat the bird. He even lampshades it by asking the audience what he should do now.
* TheVoiceless: In all his cartoons with the Road Runner. He only speaks during four of his five appearances with Bugs Bunny.
* VillainousUnderdog: The cartoons are built around this concept, with the smart, but horribly unlucky coyote being thoroughly overmatched by the super fast, equally smart, and and ungodly fortunate Road Runner. Physics itself was always on the Road Runner's side, meaning Wile E's schemes were doomed from the start. A large part of this was, of course, because in the words of Chuck Jones "The audience's sympathy but always remain with the coyote."
* VillainProtagonist: Wile E. Coyote is trying to eat the Road Runner, and is therefore ostensibly the bad guy. But he's just so adorably persistent in how he goes about it that you can't help but root for him.

'''Tropes related to the Road Runner:'''

* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife
* AlliterativeName: '''R'''oad '''R'''unner.
* ArchEnemy: Wile E. Coyote.
* CatchPhrase: [[strike:[[BeamMeUpScotty "Meep Meep!"]]]] "Beep Beep!"
* FlatCharacter: Being a LivingProp, is nondescript in personality, never serving any purpose outside of being Wile E's victim.
* HeroAntagonist: The Road Runner can be considered the hero of his shorts, being hunted after by a hungry predator.
* InvincibleHero
* PaintedTunnelRealTrain: He ''loves'' this trope.
* PerpetualSmiler: The only time he ever changes from this is when he sees the eponymous giant robot from "The Solid Tin Coyote".
* SuperSpeed
* TheVoiceless: If you were to count the Road Runner's "MEEP MEEP" as a voice, he would fall under TheUnintelligible.

-> "''Arriba! Arriba! Andale! Andale!''"

Another FunnyForeigner and good-natured {{Trickster}} who moves at SuperSpeed to help his poor Mexican mouse friends get cheese from "el gringo pussygato" (usually Sylvester). Has a lethargic cousin named (inevitably) "Slowpoke Rodriguez" who uses a gun to incapacitate cats instead. [[DorkAge For obvious reasons]], the Speedy shorts — particularly the late 1960s ones with Daffy as his antagonist — tend not to be received well by animation fans and historians.

'''Debut:''' "Cat-Tails for Two" (1953), [=McKimson=].

'''Tropes related to Speedy Gonzales:'''
* ArchEnemy: Sylvester is this to him, but it doesn't work both ways (Sylvester's ArchEnemy being Tweety Pie)
* BadassAdorable
* BumblingSidekick: Oddly enough plays this role for Daffy in ''Daffy Duck's Fantastic Island''.
* CatchPhrase: "Arriba! Arriba!"
* ChivalrousPervert: His eyes for female mice has gotten him in trouble with the other rodents on occasion.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In Speedy's first cartoon, "Cat-Tails for Two," Speedy looked ''way'' different than how he looks now. The "Speedy" in "Cat-Tails for Two" had a gold tooth, a pink shirt with no pants, and came off as more of a Mexican stereotype than his current form.
* FunnyForeigner
%%%Germans Love David Hasselhoff is a YMMV trope. Do not post it here.
* GratuitousSpanish
* HeroAntagonist: He flip flopped with this, a lot of shorts giving the main focus to the blundering of foes such as Sylvester or Daffy.
* InvincibleHero: Leaned towards this (his SuperSpeed made him near untouchable by antagonists such as Sylvester (the odd occasion the cat actually placed the mouse in his mouth he often merely charged with enough power to rip (harmlessly) through his tail, suggesting it was actually ''physically impossible'' for Sylvester to eat Speedy).
** A possible reason for Daffy's more malicious persona during the De Patie Freleng era was to remedy this trope and [[WorthyOpponent utilise a greater malice]] that Speedy could come off as more sympathetic and fallible against (much akin to Yosemite Sam replacing the more pitiful Elmer Fudd as Bugs' enemy). While still a [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain bumbling loser]], Daffy often managed to [[NotSoHarmlessVillain genuinely challenge and intimidate]] Speedy much more often than Sylvester did previously. In a couple of cases [[TeamRocketWins Speedy even ended up the loser of the short]].
* KarmicTrickster
* LaserGuidedKarma: A cunning Karmic Trickster when working to benefit his innocent mouse amigos, though often a somewhat simple MinionWithAnFInEvil when working with less scrupulous co-stars such as Daffy and Witch Hazel.
* NiceHat
* NiceMice
* PingPongNaivete: Similar to Tweety, while often more a cunning Karmic Trickster ObfuscatingStupidity, there are times when Speedy genuinely comes off as incredibly naive. His unrequited attempts to make peace with the then-plainly hateful Daffy have an almost [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk tragic tone]] at times (eg. ''Moby Duck'').
* SuperSpeed
* TokenMinority: One of the few Mexican characters in the Looney Tunes cast.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Daffy. Type 2.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: With Daffy.

!!The Tasmanian Devil (Taz)

The destructive, hurricane-spinning, feral, ExtremeOmnivore who talks in HulkSpeak, when he talks at all. He'll eat anything, buzzsaw through anything, and moves at whirlwind speed.

'''Debut:''' "Devil May Hare" (1954), [=McKimson.=]

'''Tropes related to Tasmanian Devil:'''
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: His hair resembles devil horns. He spins like a whirlwind, which is also called a "dust devil".
* BigEater
* BigOlUnibrow
* BreakoutCharacter: Despite only appearing in five of the original shorts, became immensely popular due to later spin-offs and merchandising.
* TheDreaded: Several of his cartoons begin by establishing that he's one of the most feared animals in the world, with all other animals running in dread from him.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning
* ExtremeOmnivore: It's pretty extreme that Taz [[EatTheBomb can eat dynamite without it killing him]].
* {{Flanderization}}: While never bright, he's gotten alot dumber over the years.
* FluffyTheTerrible
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Against Bugs, anyway. He's shown as much more dangerous when he's faced with more minor characters, and though Daffy also beats him in their single short together, he has a much harder time accomplishing this.
* InformedSpecies: He and his She-Devil mate look absolutely nothing like real Tasmanian devils, which are black-furred for a starter. The differences only get bigger from there.
* HulkSpeak: When Mel Blanc asked "What does he sound like?" when he first voiced the character and was told, "Nobody has ever heard one." So he was compelled to [[ThrowItIn ad-lib some kind of glottal-guttural gravelly gargle]], now lovingly described as "Taz-speak."
* MusicSoothesTheSavageBeast: His weakness.
* SeldomSeenSpecies
* SpinOff: During the 90s he was given his own show, ''TazMania'', which cast him with a sitcom-like family.
* TooDumbToLive

!!Michigan J. Frog

A frog from TheGayNineties is discovered by a man in modern times. Unfortunately, the frog acts as his NotSoImaginaryFriend. Listed here as an honorable mention, as he only ever appeared in one cartoon, which he didn't share with any other iconic characters, and was never really iconic himself until he became the mascot for TheWB Network in the 90's.

'''Debut:''' "One Froggy Evening" (1955), Jones.

'''Tropes related to Michigan J. Frog:'''
* {{Immortality}}: Strongly implied that this frog can [[TheAgeless never age]] or die. (See ReallySevenHundredYearsOld below.)
* {{Jerkass}}
* NiceHat
* NotSoImaginaryFriend: More a trait than the character itself, everyone sees the frog, only one person sees it's singing talent.
* OneShotCharacter: Well, at least until ''Another Froggy Evening'', decades later.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Has survived in a box for several years since the age of cavemen.
* SealedGoodInACan: Although it wasn't clear until the end of "Another Froggy Evening".
* SpeciesSurname
* YouDidntAsk: Seems to be implied in ''Another Froggy Evening'' when met by Marvin the Martian, who can speak "Frog"/"Martian" and thus can just ask him to sing for him.


[[folder:Early Characters/Secondary Characters]]

!!Bosko the Talk-Ink Kid


The original star character of the Warner Bros. cartoon studio, created by [[Creator/HarmanAndIsing Hugh Harman and Rudolph Ising]] as the studios answer to Mickey Mouse. While Bosko had little to no personality, he was fairly popular during the early 30's. He later migrated with his creators to MGM in 1933, where he made a few more appearances (complete with a full on redesign into a black kid) in their ''HappyHarmonies'' cartoons before being abandoned altogether. He managed to make one last appearance in the TinyToonAdventures episode "Fields of Honey", although he was redesigned to have dog ears, obviously due to the stir it would cause seeing a cartoon caricature of a black person in today's society.

'''Debut:''' "[[BoskoTheTalkInkKid Bosko, the Talk-Ink Kid]]" (1929), Harman-Ising

* See BoskoTheTalkInkKid.



A [[CaptainErsatz shameless]] MickeyMouse clone made by former Disney employee [[Creator/HarmanAndIsing Rudolph Ising]] to be the headlining star of the [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] series. Appearance and personality was nearly indistinguishable from Mickey, although Foxy was noticably more agressive. Only lasted for three shorts, as WaltDisney quickly got wind of the ripoff and personally asked Rudy to stop using him. He DID made a brief return in the TinyToonAdventures episode ''Two-Tone Town'', however.

'''Debut:''' Lady, Play Your Mandolin! (1931), Ising

* CaptainErsatz: As mentioned already, he is one of the most blatant attempts at ripping off of MickeyMouse ever done. His image is even adorned on the CaptainErsatz page.
* TheEveryman: Foxy was a gallopin', beer guzzling gaucho in his first short, a trolley driver in the next (although that was AllJustADream) and a traffic cop in his final short.
* FlatCharacter: Like the character he ripped off in the first place, he's a fairly scrappy character but otherwise devoid of any distinctive personality traits.
* {{Retraux}}: The episode of Tiny Toons he appeared in, along with his girlfriend Roxy, served as a throwback to cartoons from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, right down to everything being in black & white.



A CaptainErsatz of Foxy after legal issues forced the former character into early retirement. Like all of Harman and Ising's characters, he was nondescript in personality. He made two appearances in the Merrie Melodies series, in "You Don't Know What You're Doin'" and "[[WesternAnimation/CensoredEleven Hittin' The Trail for Hallelujah Land]]". On another note, another character appeared a few years later that was also called Piggy in the Friz Freleng cartoon "Pigs is Pigs", although this character was a gluttonous little kid who had nothing in common with this earlier character.

'''Debut''': "You Don't Know What You're Doin'!" (1931), Ising

* CaptainErsatz: Of Foxy.
* FlatCharacter

!!Goopy Geer


A happy go lucky pianist with loads of talent and a real crowd stealer. Has an slight resemblance to Goofy, but in this case, Goopy Geer came about a [[OlderThanTheyThink month before]] Goofy (or, Dippy Dawg as he was known then) appeared in "Mickey's Revue." Only lasted four shorts and was the last attempt of the original Harman and Ising operated animation studio to make an original character. However, he also make a brief comeback along with Foxy in TinyToonAdventures ''Two-Tone Town''.

'''Debut:''' Goopy Geer (1932), Ising

* AlliterativeName
* FlatCharacter



A CaptainErsatz of BoskoTheTalkInkKid that was hastily created after Creator/HarmanAndIsing split with Leon's studio and took the rights to Bosko with them. His shorts are noteworthy, if only for being some of the blandest, dullest cartoons to come from that time period. [[ADayInTheLimelight He made a brief comeback]] in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode "Warners 65th Anniversary Special", in which he tried to inflict revenge on the Warner siblings, who in their universe, destroyed Buddy's career. ([[TakeThat they were brought in to spice up his boring cartoons, via hitting him in the head with a mallet over and over again]]) Voiced by Creator/JimCummings in the latter special.

'''Debut:''' "Buddy's Day Out" (1933), Tom Palmer

* ButtMonkey: In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' universe, the Warner Bros. and Sister got their starring roles by starring cartoons consisting of whacking Buddy in the head with a mallet over and over again.
* CaptainErsatz: Of Bosko. Creator/BobClampett even jokingly nicknamed him "Bosko in Whiteface".
* FlatCharacter: Until his comeback, when he got a little more personality.
* StepfordSmiler: Prior to him revealing his evil plans in the Warners 65th Anniversary Special.
* TookALevelInBadAss: In the Warners Special. Keep in mind, he has the ''exact same voice'' as {{Pete}} and [[SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Robotnik]]!

!!Beans the Cat

->''"Beans is the name, one of the Boston beans!"''


One of several characters made by Creator/FrizFreleng in a desperate attempt to reinvigorate their studio, Beans the Cat was meant to be the big star of the studio--only for that position to go to Beans' sidekick, Porky Pig. Beans was initially somewhat popular, likely because he had a rebellious streak that Buddy was sorely lacking, but as that aspect of his personality faded, so did his popularity.

'''Debut:''' "I Haven't Got a Hat" (1935), Freleng

* CaptainErsatz: Of ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat''. He even has a girlfriend named Little Kitty (A parody of Felix's girlfriend name, Kitty).
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He only appeared in 11 shorts (2 of them being cameos) during 1935-1936 before being abandoned completely.
* CuteKitten
* FlatCharacter: He had at least ''something'' resembling a personality when directed by Freleng, or in his sole outing for Creator/TexAvery. Unfortunately, Jack King (who directed most of his shorts) tended to play him as a feline version of Buddy, ensuring that he got eclipsed by Porky.
* KarmicTrickster: In his first couple of shorts.
* PunnyName: He and Porky's names were a play on "Pork N' Beans".

!! Ham and Ex


Two puppy twins that were part of Friz's attempt to make a batch of star characters for the studio. Obviously didn't last long.

'''Debut:''' "I Haven't Got A Hat" (1935), Freleng

* AlwaysIdenticalTwins
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome
* PreciousPuppies
* {{Flat Character}}s
* {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s

!!Oliver Owl


'''Debut''': "I Haven't Got a Hat" (1935), Freleng

The fourth member of the batch of characters Friz Freleng made for "I Haven't Got a Hat".

* AlliterativeName
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He disappears after a few shorts.
* FlatCharacter: You should know by now that the original shorts went through a LOT of dud characters before we got the stars of today.
* TheOwlKnowingOne: Implied, but never shown. He seems at least smart enough to be a film director, as shown in "Hollywood Capers".
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses
* SpeciesSurname

!!Little Kitty


'''Debut''': "I Haven't Got a Hat" (1935), Freleng

The fifth member of Friz's group of characters for "I Haven't Got a Hat". Served as a love interest for Beans on one occasion, as well as the daughter of '''Porky Pig''' in one short.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome
* CuteKitten
* FlatCharacter
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics

!!Gabby Goat

->"Wish I'd stay home, I don't like him anyway."


Created as an attempt to serve as a comic foil for Porky Pig, Gabby Goat was a short tempered jerk that was essentially the Looney Tunes answer to DonaldDuck in terms of character. However, audiences found him too unlikable to be a hit, and in order for his chemistry with Porky to work, the latter character had to be derailed into a bumbling idiot, which was a no go, so Gabby was quickly phased out, with DaffyDuck serving as Porky's more appropriate foil later down the road. (Which is telling when "Porky's Badtime Story" was remade as "Tick Tock Tuckered" years later, with Gabby replaced by Daffy.)

'''Debut:''' "Porky & Gabby" (1937), UbIwerks

* AlliterativeName: '''G'''abby '''G'''oat.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He only appeared in 3 shorts during the late 1930's, due to being perceived as too unlikable, as mentioned previously. Storyboards for "Porky's Party" reveal he was planned to have a fourth appearance, but he was replaced with a penguin in the final cartoon.
* DeadpanSnarker
* GenderBlenderName: Gabby is usually a female name.
* GlassCannon
* HairTriggerTemper: The Looney Tunes answer to DonaldDuck.
* {{Jerkass}}
* SpeciesSurname
* [[StraightManAndWiseGuy Wise Guy]]: Was intended as one to Porky's StraightMan. Later cartoons would show that Porky works off wackier characters better than meaner ones.

!!Petunia Pig

Porky's love interest.

'''Debut:''' "Porky's Romance" (1937), Tashlin

* AlliterativeName: '''P'''etunia '''P'''ig.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: She vanished after a couple of years. She's gained some popularity again thanks to ''BabyLooneyTunes''.
* DistaffCounterpart: To Porky.
* GirlishPigtails: In her later appearences (the character did not originally have hair).
* {{Jerkass}}: In "Porky's Romance", very much so.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: To Porky.
* SpeciesSurname

A [[KillerRabbit seemingly harmless]] elderly woman; owner of Tweety and occasionally Sylvester (or whatever other animal the cartoon calls for).

'''Debut:''' "Little Red Walking Hood" (1937), Avery

* BreakoutCharacter: Is arguably more the lead protaganist of SylvesterAndTweetyMysteries than the title pair.
* CoolOldLady
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Granny is seemlingly harmless, but is much smarter and stronger than she looks.
* GrannyClassic
* MamaBear: Do '''not''' mess with her pets.
* NeverMessWithGranny: She isn't the TropeNamer but she might as well be.
* PingPongNaivete: Depending on the short, Granny can be extremely wily and perceptive in foiling Sylvester, or completely oblivious that her beloved cat is anything but best friends with Tweety.
* TeamMom: In ''BabyLooneyTunes''.

!!Happy Hare/Bugs' Bunny/Bugs Bunny Prototype

->''"You don't have to be crazy to do this, but it sure helps!"''


Originally created by Ben Hardaway as a CaptainErsatz for DaffyDuck, this rabbit character shares many of the same traits as Daffy, but also serves as a very early prototype for the later, more fleshed out Bugs Bunny. But wheras Bugs was more defensive, GenreSavvy and collected, this wild hare was loaded with motivation and energy and went out causing trouble on sheer principle, although ''Hare-Um Scare-Um'' showed us that he could be just as resourceful as the later Bugs. This prototype appeared in five shorts: "Porky's Hare Hunt", "Hare-Um Scare-Um", "Presto Change-o", "Patient Porky" (in the opening) and "WesternAnimation/ElmersCandidCamera".

When Hardaway left Warner Bros. for the Creator/WalterLantz cartoon studio, he would later take the traits of this character and use them to create Lantz's biggest star of the 40's, WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker.

'''Debut:''' "Porky's Hare Hunt" (1938), Ben Hardaway

* AnnoyingLaugh: In fact, the same laugh that Creator/MelBlanc used when he went on to voice WoodyWoodpecker, but not sped up.
* ArtEvolution: He started off looking like a tiny white rabbit, but by 1939 he had sprouted apricot fur and started looking more like the Bugs we remember.
* CaptainErsatz: WoodyWoodpecker is one of this prototype.
* TheCameo: Popped up early in "Patient Porky", made a blink and you'll miss it cameo in Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit, and was going to appear in LooneyTunesBackInAction in the original ending until that ending was scrapped (but can be seen as an extra on the DVD).
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* HammerSpace: One distinguishing trait this character had was that he could pull objects out of thin air like magic in "Presto Change-O" and "Hare-Um Scare-Um", something that would be integrated into the fully realized Bugs Bunny.
* {{Jerkass}}: ''Especially'' in "Elmer's Candid Camera", where the Proto-Bugs heckled poor Elmer just because he was taking pictures of wild life. He was probably the reason why Elmer took up hunting in the first place.
* MadHatter: In "Hare Um Scare Um", he is unabashably crazy, and proud of it.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He was very small in his first three appearances, but very strong and fast. "Elmer's Candid Camera" brought him up to about as tall as Elmer, however.
* ScrewySquirrel: One of the earliest examples.
* SuperStrength: A mild example, but in Porky's Hare Hunt, he ''snapped Porky's rifle like a twig''.

!!Sniffles The Mouse


This early creation of Creator/ChuckJones is a ridiculously cute, naive little mouse that often obliviously wandered into danger's way. As the shorts transitioned into zanier humor, attempts were made to evolve Sniffles accordingly, Flanderizing him into a KarmicTrickster with a MotorMouth, though the character was ultimately phased out (though still had a healthy run in the comics.) His motor mouth version made a brief speaking appearance in ''Film/SpaceJam''.

'''Debut:''' "Naughty But Mice" (1939), Jones.

* KarmicTrickster: In his later shorts Creator/ChuckJones transformed the cute naive little mouse into this.
* MotorMouth: Again, in his later shorts. He goes from a RidiculouslyCuteCritter to an annoying chatterbox who would just '''never stop talking'''.
* NiceHat: A blue sailor cap.
* NiceMice
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Jones created the character during the early period in his career when he was still heavily influenced by Disney's ''Silly Symphonies'' shorts.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: In his later shorts.

!!Cecil Turtle


Slow paced ([[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass but quick-witted]]) turtle that rivals Bugs Bunny. One of the few characters to consistently defeat Bugs, in shorts that were based on the fable ''The Tortoise and The Hare''.

'''Debut:''' "Tortoise Beats Hare" (1941), Avery

* AffectionateParody: The three shorts are probably these of the SillySymphonies version of "TheTortoiseAndTheHare".
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: One of the few adversaries to beat Bugs, let alone do so ''handily''.
* TheCatCameBack
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* EvilVsEvil[=/=]RashEquilibrium: Both he and Bugs are willing to play crooked in order to beat each other.
* GenreSavvy: He's one of the few ''Looney Tunes'' characters to see through a PaperThinDisguise (and know that no one else will on top of it).
* ManipulativeBastard: He's played Bugs like a chump ''every single time''. His most notable accomplishment is tricking Bugs into effectively dressing as a tortoise himself, which draws the ire of rabbit mobsters.
** NotSoInvincibleAfterAll: In "Rabbit Transit", he actually has a tougher time with Bugs, even getting visibly frustrated when he manages to heckle him back. Bugs actually defeats him this time round, though Cecil happily settles for a moral victory.
* RemovableShell
* TheRival: To Bugs.
* SpeciesSurname
* TurtlePower

!!Henery Hawk

'''Debut:''' "The Squawkin' Hawk" (1942), Jones

* AlliterativeName
* BrattyHalfPint: He's a belligerent, loudmouthed little pipsqueak who picks fights with other characters many times bigger than him.
* OutOfFocus: "Walky Talky Hawky" was created as a second starring turn for Henery Hawk, but Foghorn Leghorn stole the show, reducing Henery to his adversary. Along with The Barnyard Dawg he eventually disappears from the series.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He can effortlessely take down ol' Foggy, even though he's only a measly few inches high!
* SpeciesSurname
* VillainProtagonist: When the series was initially his own.

!!Killer the Buzzard/Beaky Buzzard

An absentminded buzzard who lives with his momma in the distant desert. Appeared in three shorts. Came back as a background regular in ''Film/SpaceJam'', and made a cameo in "LooneyTunesBackInAction".

'''Debut:''' "Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid" (1942), Clampett.

* AlliterativeName: '''B'''eaky '''B'''uzzard
* HarmlessVillain: Within an already pretty incompetent RoguesGallery, Beaky stands out as being exceptionally moronic and even shy towards his prey.
** NotSoHarmlessVillain: He's significantly more competent in "The Lion's Busy". He also inexplicably wins his fight with the dragon at the end of "The Bashful Buzzard".
* MommasBoy
* TheRuntAtTheEnd
* SimpletonVoice: Specifically, a voice like Edgar Bergen's "Mortimer Snerd"; in-house he was alternately known as "The Snerd Bird".
* ShrinkingViolet

!!Hubie and Bertie

'''Debut:''' "The Aristo-Cat" (1943), Jones

* CatchPhrase:
** Hubie: "Hey, Boit! C'mere!"
** Bertie: "Yeah, yeah, sure, sure.", "Hehehehe... Riot!"
* DrivenToSuicide: In "Cheese Chasers", they overindulge in a cheese factory and get sick of the stuff, so they figure they have nothing left to live for and [[SuicideByCop throw themselves to Claude Cat]]. Claude thinks there's something off about mice wanting to get eaten and becomes frightened of them, so he figures there's nothing left for ''him'' to live for, and goes to the dog to get himself killed. [[spoiler:The dog, trying to figure the whole thing out, has a breakdown of his own and is last seen running afther the dog catcher.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Especially in ''Mouse Wreckers''.
* ScrewySquirrel

!!Claude Cat

'''Debut:''' "The Aristo-Cat" (1943), Jones

* AlliterativeName: '''C'''laude '''C'''at.
* ButtMonkey
* CatsAreMean: In later cartoons, after he TookALevelInJerkass.
* NervousWreck: Has a nervous and anxious personality.
* PunnyName: A pun on the homophone "clawed cat".
* SpeciesSurname
* TookALevelInJerkass: After his run with Hubie and Bertie ended, he became a jealous foil for Frisky Puppy and Pussyfoot.

* SpiritualSuccessor: BabyHuey.

A lumbering mass of red hair wearing sneakers. Gossamer almost exclusively plays the role of a nigh invincible monster in his few appearances, and is mostly a brutish foil to Bugs Bunny.

'''Debut:''' "Hair-Raising Hare" (1946), Jones.

* {{Determinator}}
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: That one time when he gets shaved into oblivion, leaving only his sneakers.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Bugs once scared him off by making him realize that [[ParanoiaFuel he was currently being watched by possibly thousands of people this entire time]] ([[BreakingTheFourthWall read: the viewers]]). He proceeded to run screaming to get away. Through several walls.
* LightningBruiser

!!Rocky and Mugsy

A pair of thugs who appear in a few of the Looney Tunes shorts. It should also be noted that Rocky also appeared in a number of shorts without Mugsy, but other thugs instead.

'''Debut:''' "Racketeer Rabbit" (1946) (Rocky), "Bugs and Thugs" (1953) (Mugsy), Freleng.

* BadBoss: Rocky isn't very nice to Mugsy. However, this is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in the short "Bugsy and Mugsy", where Rocky is fooled by Bugs Bunny into thinking Mugsy is trying to kill him.
* BankRobbery: As seen in "Bugs and Thugs".
* BigGuyLittleGuy: They provide the page image.
* DumbMuscle: Mugsy is much bigger than Rocky, but also much dumber.
* {{Jerkass}}: Rocky
* LaughablyEvil: Both of them, though Rocky was initially created as a WorthyOpponent to Bugs just like Yosemite Sam (another Bugs villain created by Freleng).
* NiceHat: Rocky.
** EyeObscuringHat: An absurdly tall hat which obscures his eyes.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: Rocky, the short one, is smarter than DumbMuscle Mugsy.
* StupidCrooks: Mugsy
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: A duo of gangsters.

!!Charlie Dog

Hyperactive and incredibly clingy mutt that is constantly searching for a home and master. With mannerisms not distant from those of a slick-talking salesman, Charlie goes to extremes to be accepted by his potential master (usually Porky Pig) who are often equally determined to get him off their backs.

'''Debut:''' "Little Orphan Airdale" (1947), Jones [[note]]Though if you count the character he was created to be an {{expy}} of, his actual debut is "Porky's Pooch" (1941), Clampett.[[/note]]

* TheCameo: Made an appearance in "Dog Tales". However, this appearance was mostly recycled from "Often an Orphan".
* {{Determinator}}: He won't take "no" for an answer, EVER.
* DoggedNiceGuy: [[IncrediblyLamePun A non-romantic example]].
* GenreSavvy: At the beginning of ''Often an Orphan'', his previous owner tricks him by luring him away during a game of fetch and then drives off, abandoning him on the side of a road. At the very end when Porky apparently caves in and adopts Charlie, Porky attempts the same trick, but Charlie easily sees through it and abandons ''Porky'' on the side of a road instead.
* LoveableRogue: Though like Daffy, he can act less than loveable in his schemes at times.
* RuleOfThree: Each of his shorts with Porky has a [[RunningGag scene]] where the Pig attempts to mail him off to a different part of the world, but it never works.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Claims to have all sorts of skills and abilities as the perfect dog. In reality, he's a worthless mutt.
* SpeciesSurname
* TooManyHalves: He describes himself this way in a RunningGag.
--> I'm 50% Pointer (There it is! There it is! There it is!), 50% Boxer, 50% Setter (''Irish'' Setter), 50% Watch Dog, 50% Spitz, 50% Doberman Pincher. But, mostly, I'm all Labrador Retriever!

!!Mac and Tosh, the Goofy Gophers

'''Debut:''' "The Goofy Gophers" (1947), Clampett.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Their interactions with each other certainly give this vibe, partly due to ValuesDissonance. Gets played up for laughs in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As seen in "Gopher Broke (1948)", where they casually conduct a {{gaslighting}} campaign that leaves D'Brer Dog well beyond a mental breakdown, all so they can easily steal back the vegetables he was guarding.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The whole point of "Gopher Broke (1948)"; how dare you be a farmer's dog sleeping in the barn where the vegetables we want to steal are being kept! We'll drive you insane so we can steal them anyway!
* MoralMyopia: In "Gopher Broke (1948)", they treat themselves as the wronged party even as they gaslight D'Brer Dog, despite the fact that the vegetables that were "stolen" from them actually belong to the farmer, meaning Mac and Tosh were stealing them in the first place before they got harvested!
* OverlyPolitePals: Constantly acting with stereotypical British politeness, especially towards each other.

!!Hippety Hopper

'''Debut:''' "Hop, Look and Listen" (1948), [=McKimson.=]

* AlliterativeName: '''H'''ippety '''H'''opper.

!!The Crusher

'''Debut:''' "Rabbit Punch" (1948), Jones

* MouthyKid: A condescending little know-it-all, when it comes to his BumblingDad.
* SpoiledBrat: As Sylvester calls him ("Goldimouse and the Three Cats").
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Physically, he's a miniature version of Sylvester.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: He's often embarrassed by his father's behavior.

!!Penelope Pussycat


The (collective?) name for the poor kitty who finds herself the object of Pepe's affections.

'''Debut''': "For Scent-imental Reasons" (1949), Jones.

* AlliterativeName
* AllThereInTheManual: Penelope's name (while refered to in "The Cat's Bah") was inconsistent until promotional art for "Carrotblanca" confirmed it.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Usually timid in personality though can turn violent if harrassed for long.
* CrackPairing: A pretty much In-Universe example in "Carrotblanca", where because Lola hadn't been created yet Penelope gets paired with Bugs Bunny.
* CuteMute: She looks cute and never talks in the classic cartoons.
* ShrinkingViolet: Usually rather meek in personality, though when smitten she can be as equally brash as Pepe.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Until Lola Bunny made her appearance in 1996, she was the only major female character.
* SpeciesSurname
* SuddenlyVoiced: In ''Carrotblanca''.
* TheVoiceless: A rare example of a mute animal character.
* YouLookFamiliar: Her design is pretty much a grown-up version of Pussyfoot.
** Not to mention is almost a DistaffCounterpart for Sylvester physically (and, considering their equal neuroses and [[LovableCoward fearful personalties]], partially in personality). In fact she is near identical to Mrs Sylvester used in "A Mouse Divided" [[AdaptationDyeJob fur color aside]].

!!Playboy Penguin

'''Debut:''' "Frigid Hare" (1949), Jones.

* AlliterativeName
* PaperThinDisguise
* SpeciesSurname
* VerbalTic

!!Sam and Ralph

'''Debut:''' "Don't Give Up the Sheep" (1953), Jones.

* BlindingBangs: Sam's got them. In one cartoon Ralph assumes that they impair his vision and tries to take advantage of this. [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption It doesn't work]].
** "Woolen Under Where" plays with this -- on their way to work, Sam keeps bumping into trees, so Ralph punches him in for him. When Sam got to the cliffside he usually sits at, he nearly falls off.
* TheChewToy: ''Ralph''.
* CatchPhrase: "Mornin' Sam." "Mornin' Ralph."
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In their first short, Sam is referred to as Ralph, and only the sheepdogs clock in for work. [[spoiler: The wolf gets beaten by the sheepdog even at quitting time.]]
* DogsAreDumb: Averted.
* {{Expy}}: Originally, Ralph had significant differences from Wile E (Earlier shorts show different feet, more tail, etc) but since they had a similar faces, later animators became lazy and started drawing them the same way.
* FriendlyEnemies
* OffscreenTeleportation: [[ExaggeratedTrope Taken to ridiculous levels]] at the climax of "Ready, Woolen and Able", which culminates in [[spoiler:Ralph at a beach full of Sam clones. Ralph promptly goes insane]].
* PunchclockHero and PunchclockVillain: Literally.

!!Witch Hazel

'''Debut:''' "Bewitched Bunny" (1954), Jones.

* AxCrazy: Frequently; given that she often chases after Bugs with a meat cleaver.
* HotterAndSexier: In the respective endings of "Bewitched Bunny" and "Broomstick Bunny", when her ugliness is turned into beauty.
* HotWitch: A hot witch ''rabbit'' in the end of "Bewitched Bunny".
** It's played more straight, however, at the end of "Broomstick Bunny".
* TheHyena: She's prone to busting out in cackling laughter at the slightest whim.
* PunchClockVillain: Has a pretty normal life (for a witch, anyways) when she's not trying to cook Bugs or Daffy.
* SassyBlackWoman: Witch Lezah, her counterpart in ''TheLooneyTunesShow''.
* WickedWitch: Parody of the trope.

!!Marc Antony and Pussyfoot

A large dog and a little [[CuteKitten kitten]]. [[PapaWolf The former is very protective of the latter]].

'''Debut:''' "WesternAnimation/FeedTheKitty" (1955), Jones.

* AngryGuardDog: Marc Antony tries to represent this in their first meeting. It fails miserably.
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: Poor Marc Antony.
* BigFriendlyDog: It's no good denying it, Marc Antony.
* CatsAreMean: Averted. Pussyfoot ''does'' get Marc Antony in trouble but [[ChildrenAreInnocent s/he doesn't seem to do it on purpose]].
** In several of their shorts, Claude Cat serves as an antagonist, usually trying to harass or abuse Pussyfoot and pin the blame on Marc Anthony.
* CuteKitten: Pussyfoot.
* FemaleFelineMaleMutt: Assuming Pussyfoot is female since there's a lot of ViewerGenderConfusion (sometimes it's referred to as "he", in other episodes it's "she") similar to the Tweety example. Many people like to think she's a female cat.
* GentleGiant: Marc Antony.
* PapaWolf: Marc Antony.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Pussyfoot is downright adorable.

!!Cool Cat

'''Debut:''' "Cool Cat" (1967), Alex Lovy.

* AlliterativeName: '''C'''ool '''C'''at.
* {{Beatnik}}: Wears a beret (except in his last two cartoons) and speaks '60s-style beatnik slang.
* CoolCat: Pretty obvious, considering the character he is clearly an Expy of. And no, he's not the TropeNamer.
* {{Expy}}: Of WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther, blatantly.
* NiceHat: His beret.

!!Merlin the Magic Mouse

'''Debut:''' "Merlin the Magic Mouse" (1967), Alex Lovy.

* AlliterativeName: '''M'''erlin the '''M'''agic '''M'''ouse.

'''Debut:''' ''Bunny and Claude: We Rob Carrot Patches'' (1968), [=McKimson=].

Two characters introduced near the end of the original ''Looney Tunes'' era, Bunny and Claude are a rabbit OutlawCouple who are [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of ''Film/BonnieAndClyde'', whose 1967 film was a then-recent smash. In their two shorts, these cotton-tailed criminals steal carrots while outwitting an incompetent Sheriff.

Bugs' current girlfriend, and a character in almost every ''Looney Tunes'' project since her introduction.

'''Tropes Related to Lola Bunny:'''
* BarefootCartoonAnimal
* BareYourMidriff: Exaggerated at first in ''Space Jam'' along with her IconicOutfit, as shown in the image, but was then zigzagged along with [[UnlimitedWardrobe other outfits]] in her later appearances.
* BerserkButton: [[CaptainObvious See quote]].
* BurgerFool: In Creator/DCComics' ''ComicBook/LooneyTunes'' title, she works for Machu Pizza, where she specializes in delivering food to some very unusual customers: AliensAndMonsters, FishPeople, gods and other mythological figures, etc.

** CanonImmigrant: With analogues in ''WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes'', ''WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''.
* TheChick
* CousinOliver: Although not an actual kid, she's a "new kid" compared to the older characters of classic cartoons and since her debut she was shoehorned into the Looney Tunes lineage the same way a Cousin Oliver often is. Her descendant is one of the main characters in ''WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed'' and her baby version is already friends with the other ''WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes''... even though the gang met her for the first time ''as an adult'' in ''Film/SpaceJam''.

* HotterAndSexier: The purpose of her introduction.

* HelloNurse: Lola's appearance has all the toons (and Jordan) pause momentarily, but Bugs... never quite recovers from seeing her the first time.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal
* MsFanservice
* OfficialCouple: With WesternAnimation/BugsBunny.
* PettingZooPerson: Though she is more of a Borderline PettingZooPerson in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''.
* RememberTheNewGuy: The way Warner's been marketing her since her debut in ''Film/SpaceJam''.
* TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation: She made her debut in the last few years of that period.
* RighteousRabbit
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Almost certainly added to the regular Looney Tunes line-up because of this. Before her, the only real major female Looney Tunes character was Penelope.
* SpeciesSurname
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She's a sassy, no-nonsense woman who is good at basketball and hates being called "doll". However, in attitude and mannerisms, she acts like the typical seductive FemmeFatale and her sex appeal is ''anything'' but masculine.
