Funny: The Looney Tunes Show

In General

  • Generally, Daffy's complete ineptitude in paying attention to what he's talking about results in some very hilarious moments. There's his two Digging Yourself Deeper moments, his off-tangent description of a "cheer-leader cleaning lady", and the "tomato-tomAto" conversation in "Casa de Calma", to name a few.
    Daffy (mid-rant): Now! Will somebody please tell me what I was talking about!?
    Bugs: Beats me. I stopped listening after "robots eat breakfast burritos."

      Bugs: No, you maroon! That's the story of Superman!
      Daffy: Who's Superman?

    Daffy: *looking out the window while playing cards* Pathetic. Playing all by yourself. Get some friends, kid! *puts down all his chips* I'm all in. *camera pans out to the table; Daffy scoots over to the other side where there is no one there* Fold.

    Daffy: Seeing you kids have fun out there, despite what the scoreboard said taught me a lesson that I will carry with me for the rest of my life: water polo is stupid. I mean outside of these dummies who are probably your parents, no one really cares about this sport. It'd be one thing if this had been football, or basketball, or even baseball, but it's not, it's only water polo. So go out there with your heads held high because no one cares about water polo!

    Daffy: What else?
    Lola: The city said you have to pay to replace the mail box or do 1100 hours of community service.

204 — Rebel Without a Glove
  • The entire pastiche of Rebel Without a Glove, from Lola's melodrama to Thugs Bunny and Professor Duck.

    Daffy: Well you got a bright future. And don't ever let anyone tell you different.
    Bugs: Thanks again, Professor.

    Porky: He doesn't even go to school here!
    Bugs: You promise me you'll keep making a difference.
    Porky: He's not a real professor!

    Daffy: Thank you your honor. The evidences that I will present to you today will prove, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that this gentleman, "Speedy Gonzales", knowingly and willfully served my client dangerously hot pizza. With no warning and no regards to the physical and emotional trauma that follows. I will prove that Mr. Gonzales carelessness was no accident, but instead the direct result of his endless need for speed. We will show you that had Mr. Gonzales simply taken more time between the oven and the table to allow the pizza to cool then this senseless tragedy could have been avoided. Ladies and gentleman of jury, Mr. Gonzales likes to brag that he's the fastest mouse in all of Mexico but this is America and in America speed can kill. Or in this case, burn. Thank you, your honor.
    Judge: Mr. Gonzales.
