Western Animation: The Looney Tunes Show
Oh, it's just ol' Bugs
, Looney-tunin' in the noonday sun...
A show that premiered in 2011 on Cartoon Network
, the most recent
attempt at reviving the Looney Tunes
and Merrie Melodies
franchise. This time, the classic characters are placed into a low-key, Slice of Life
sitcom, where Bugs Bunny
is stuck sharing a house in a suburban neighborhood with a freeloading Daffy Duck
, and the rest of the Looney Tunes are all neighborhood friends. Taz is Bugs' pet, Yosemite Sam is the annoying neighbor, and Speedy Gonzales
is a stray mouse who inhabits their home (though he later has his own pizza place). Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner
are still in their own separate shorts in the desert, but are computer animated
this time. note
Both are interspersed with Merrie Melodies original music videos showcasing other characters.
After several delays, it finally premiered on May 3rd, 2011. The second and final season premiered on October 2nd, 2012, where the characters were slightly redesigned and the CGI Road Runner cartoons were discontinued. Having mixed reviews and ratings during its run, the show was put on hiatus in 2013 and Retooled
as Wabbit A Looney Tunes Production
, which will premiere in 2015.
Not to be confused with the 2002 series of the same name, which was a compilation show featuring the original theatrical shorts.

- Broken Ace: At one point, Speedy falls in love with Bugs, who is disguised as a woman. When he learns the truth, he can't get over it.
- Bugs can be this Depending on the Writer.
- Tina can do just about anything, except cut hair. (She's even capable of appreciating Daffy for his good qualities, which are microscopic in scale.)
- Acrophobic Bird: Daffy.
Daffy: (on a hang glider)
Wow! I'm flying! I'm like a bird!
Wait, I am
a bird. I'm...like a plane!
- Also, Daffy cannot swim, as revealed in "Bobcats on Three," despite being a duck!
- Acting for Two: In-universe when Daffy ends up playing all the roles in The Foghorn Leghorn Story.
- At the end of "A Christmas Carol", Bugs ends up having to play all the roles in the play.
- Action Girl: Granny as a spy in WWII.
- Actor/Role Confusion: In "Off Duty Cop", Daffy is unable to understand that his favorite character Steve St. James is actually an actor named Leslie Hunt, so he decides to become Steve St. James himself.
- Adaptation Name Change: Tina was previously known as "Melissa Duck".
- Aerith and Bob: Daffy has a talent for making up lame fake names on the spot for Bugs.
- In "Jailbird and Jailbunny", he and Bugs have to sign under fake names while staying at a motel. "I'm Count Leopold von Liechtenstein! ...And this is Randy."
- And again in the episode "Reunion", but rather he pulls a strange one-man case of this. Going into the reunion, a man taking roll asks for his name to which he replies once again, "I'm Count Leopold von Liechtenstein!" The man asks him how to spell that and Daffy gives him a blank look before replying, "Bob Jones." The man asks, "Well, which one is it?" To which Daffy replies nervously, "Both!"
- Affably Evil: Marvin the Martian. He believes in being polite, but also shoots people with laser beams.
- All Animals Are Dogs: In "Devil Dog", Bugs staunchly insists that Taz is a dog, whom he dubs Poochie. Speedy teaches him a dog-training trick, but cautions that it only works on dogs, and he's not convinced Poochie is one.
- Mild example: Daffy wags his tail happily after "trying" to become a better friend on Besties.
- All-CGI Cartoon: The new Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote shorts.
- The Alleged Car: Daffy's Parade Float. The Merrie Melodies song about it highlights its status with lyrics like Parade Float, the AC blows hot. Parade Float, the transmission is shot. Or It won't go over twenty-five and it tends to catch on fire.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Bugs tries to break things off with Lola by dressing up as a woman and pretending to be an ex-girlfriend. This backfires and just makes her want him more.
- Played staight in "Rebel Without a Glove", where Bugs Bunny becomes Thugs Bunny, a biker, which makes Lola love him even more still.
- Alternate Continuity
- Ambiguous Disorder: It's implied Daffy has genuine mental problems in addition to being really stupid.
- Ambiguously Gay: Mac and Tosh, the Goofy Gophers.
- Ambiguously Bi: In the episode "Double Date", Porky was quite excited to accept a date from Daffy after the latter won a romantic dinner. (Daffy asked Bugs first, then called Porky.) When Daffy came by in a limo with his chosen (female) date, Porky wasn't upset; in fact, he was happy that Daffy remembered to come by, and had went so far as to buy flowers. (It was only when Daffy took the flowers and left him sitting on the curb that Porky became sullen and said he needed to get a girlfriend.)
- Apocalypse How: A class 5 in a Merrie Melody, Drifting Apart. Mac and Tosh imagine themselves as two pieces of hail falling to the Earth but when they hit they explode into a mushroom cloud. When Mac and Tosh get up, it looks like they're the only living creatures in the local area. But they were hail!
- And Call Him George: In "Ridiculous Journey", the trope is surprisingly not played by Hugo the Abominable Snowman the Trope Namer and Codifier. It's instead played straight by Junior Bear who Henry implies has happened before.
- And Now For Something Completely Different: "Casa de Calma" which resembles more like classic Looney Tunes setup than a sitcom. Also "Ridiculous Journey" which is a roadtrip involving the "pet" characters journeying home ala Homeward Bound while meeting other Looney Tunes characters that haven't been used in the show before, instead of the regular cast of Bugs and Daffy.
- Animation Bump: Invoked in the Merry Melody video ''Daffy Duck: The Wizard''
- Animesque: Again, Daffy Duck: The Wizard.
- Arc Words: In-universe in Foghorn's movie The Foghorn Leghorn Story—the phrase "It's not about the treasure, it's about the quest" is repeated several times.
- Art Evolution: Bugs has noticeably gotten closer to his original look just since the first episode.
- Porky has also evolved into his more recognizable look.
- As of season two, the character's designs are now much closer to how they look in other Looney Tunes shows. For example, Bugs is now gray, and his body is taller and thinner. This is possibly in response to the massive backlash fans gave the creators who never stopped pointing out how "wrong" Bugs looked.
- Even Lola has gone through a little bit of change - between Seasons 1 and 2, her design became more rounded (to match the look of the other characters reverting to their traditional looks), she's now shorter than Bugs (much like her Space Jam version), and she's much more curvy (her chest is notably larger in Season 2).
- Artistic License – History: Lola's got some pretty novel ideas on who was the President of the United States and what they accomplished. Among others, Oscar de la Hoya apparently single-handedly won the American Revolutionary War while Al Pacino fought at the Alamo, alongside his Vice-President, Robert De Niro.
- Art Shift: While Bugs tries his hand at running a restaurant, we get a glimpse into the epic life of Daffy the Wizard, showcasing a fantasy style animation better suited for Dungeons & Dragons.
- At Arm's Length: Bugs does this to Yosemite Sam in "The Foghorn Leghorn Story".
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: It seems Daffy has a severe case of this. Bugs as well in "Reunion", because he had never gone to high school himself ("Are those lockers?!").
- And Lola, especially in "Beauty School", when she's hell-bent on chasing down Bugs' car...until she sees a cupcake store and pulls right in.
- Attention Whore: Daffy Duck, naturally.
- Aside Glance: In good old Chuck Jones fashion. Bugs Bunny does this in "Casa De Calma" after Daffy takes the cucumbers on his eyes and eats them.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: Zig-Zagged. Bugs's drag act doesn't work as much as it did in the old shorts. Some think he's an ugly woman, while others think "she" is gorgeous. Played for laughs when it works, though.
- Daffy, because of his newfound talents as a cosmetologist, makes himself look almost indistinguishable to the real Tina.
- Bad Job, Worse Uniform: In "Peel of Fortune", Bugs has to take a job at an ice cream parlour where the uniform includes an ice cream cone hat.
- Badass Driver: Lola Bunny in episode "The DMV".
- Badass: Even as a klutz, Lola Bunny still has some edge in her. Best demonstration is "It's a Handbag" When she goes into a temple and dodges the traps all just to get something for Bugs.
- Speedy Gonzales. "El Queso Bandito" paints him as a fleet-footed Robin Hood since birth, and "Devil Dog" shows him taming the Nightmare Fuel laced Tazmanian Devil without batting an eyelash.
- Bag of Holding: Lola has one of these.
- Bait-and-Switch Comment: In "Gossamer is Awesomer" Porky rearranges Speedy's mouse hole and Bugs, being annoyed by Porky's antics himself, expects him to yell at Porky for doing so...but instead he gets praised and Speedy asks him to reorganize Pizzariba.
- Barefoot Cartoon Animals: Lola, Tina and Speedy.
- Bedsheet Ghost: Bugs disguises himself as a bedsheet ghost in an attempt to scare Sam out of his house in "Fish and Visitors".
- Believing Their Own Lies: Daffy, constantly. In "Reunion", he even believes his own Self-Serving Memory until the real memory is triggered.
- Berserk Button: Porky is usually a nice guy, but when he realizes that Daffy has swindled him out of all his money, he loses it and beats the snot out of Daffy.
- In "Muh-Muh-Muh-Murder", we learn that having scalding tea thrown in his face is another of Porky's buttons...
- Beta Couple: Tina/Daffy to Lola/Bugs.
- Big Eater: Daffy apparently he eats ribs covered in marshmallows and tops it with layers of powdered sugar.
- Petunia was one in an unmade episode. Storyboards show her having eaten eight pies in one sitting.
- Big "NO!": Bugs after Porky tears up tickets to the football game, all because Daffy keeps arguing over "his" french fries.
- Biker Babe: Tina at the end of "Rebel Without a Glove".
- Bilingual Bonus: Yosemite Sam really is speaking in Russian when he calls the woman he met online over the phone.
- Whenever Speedy Gonzalez is frustrated, he rants in Spanish. In one episode, he's talking with Daffy and in frustration yells, "Pato Lucas!" which is how Daffy Duck is named in the Spanish dub.
- Bill... Bill... Junk... Bill...:
- Daffy sorting through the mail in the beginning of "Reunion". Hilariously enough, he's gotten two restraining orders.
- At the end of "Newspaper Thief"
Daffy: Bill, junk, werid charity, how many times is the newspaper company going to remind me to renew my subscription?
- Book Ends: The series began with the episode "Best Friends", and in production order (because SuperRabbit was aired as the finale instead), ends with "Best Friends Redux", both revolving around Daffy wanting to keep Bugs' friendship, but in different ways.
- Boot Camp Episode: Daffy joins the Marines in "Semper Lie".
- Bowdlerise: On Cartoon Network in Australia.
- Bowling For Ratings
- Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs
My glamor shot! My tennis trophy! My glamor shot of my tennis trophy! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
- Brick Joke: The show does a lot of it. Especially if Daffy and Lola are involved.
- Daffy thinks he's a wizard in the third episode, and it pops up a few times in later episodes. Eventually, it all leads to an epic, Black Sabbath-esque Heavy Mithril fantasy music video with Daffy as an actual wizard.
- Broke Episode: "Peel of Fortune".
- Broken Aesop: The show is riddled with them. They're possibly intentional though, and Played for Laughs.
- Brooklyn Rage: Bugs. Not as obvious as it was in the old shorts, but still definitely there.
"Are you really going there? Because if you go there, I will go there. And you do not want to be there when I get there, because when I get there, I will be so there that you will wish that you had stayed right here."
- Brutal Honesty: Tina, Daffy, Speedy and Bugs, to varying degrees.
- Building Is Welding: Played for Laughs in "Peel of Fortune". There are flashes of arc welding from the garage and Daffy is shown wearing a welding mask just before he unveils his latest invention... sliced bread!
- The Butler Did It:
- Butt Monkey: Poor Bugs Bunny. After many decades of being the screwball, he falls down the hole and winds up in this situation, especially in Episode 1.
- The role of Butt Monkey seems to ping pong back and forth between Bugs and Daffy, though the rabbit tends more toward his traditional Karmic Trickster and The Ace roles.
- Perhaps the biggest Butt Monkey is Porky Pig himself. Poor pig can't catch a break.
- At least not since high school. He peaked way too early.
- Calling Card: When Lola starts acting like a jewel thief in "The Black Widow", she leaves a calling card with a black widow on it (borrowed from her favourite movies).
- Calling Me a Logarithm: In "Bugs & Daffy Get A Job", Dr. Weisberg tells Daffy he has a deviated septum. Daffy slaps him in the face and declares "There's nothing wrong with my septum! (beat) What's a septum?".
- Calling Your Bathroom Breaks: Lola engages in this frequently, since her usual conversational style is to keep droning on and on about any thought that pops into her head, no matter how inappropriate.
- Camera Sniper: Granny, in her flashback to her World War II days.
- Canon Foreigner: Rodney Rabbit, one of the rare characters on the show who isn't human but has no connections to the original cartoons (Or any cartoons before this show) as he was invented solely for that one episode. Tina and Witch Lezah may not count as they are Expies
- Captain Obvious: Chickenhawk's not a chicken/He's just a hawk who eats chicken.
- Carnivore Confusion: Lampshaded in "Sunday Night Slice". After their favorite pizza place closes Bugs, Porky, and Daffy go to a restaurant that serves pork ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. When Porky brings up this issue, Daffy reminds Porky that he eats pepperoni all the time. Porky doesn't see the problem (he finds out later, to his horror, that pepperoni is made of pork).
- The Casanova: Pepe Le Pew, who has lost his signature stench.
- In 'Skunk Funk', it's shown that he still has his stench. Apparently, he only has it when Rule of Funny applies.
- Catch Phrase: Bugs' is lampshaded in the first episode.
- In "Monster Talent", everyone in town treats Bugs like "I like it" is his new Catch Phrase, much to the rabbit's consternation.
- Chained Heat: Daffy and Bugs are chained at the ankle for a good chunk of "Jailbird and Jailbunny".
- Chaste Tunes: Surprisingly averted, since parents are mentioned and even seen (Lola's parents, Sylvester's mother).
- Chaotic Stupid: Daffy.
- Character Exaggeration: Mainly Daffy. In previous adaptations, he's shifted from Butt Monkey to The Chew Toy; however in this adaptation while he's still that, he's neither cunning or conniving as originally. As a result, though entertaining, he is more of a one-dimensional character, thus far.
- And Daffy in most of his old starring roles was portrayed as a screwball and just as mischievous as Bugs, more like he's been returned to that version of the character.
- Then again, in this show he is dumber than the Looney Tunes shorts. With how greedy he is, he should have easily been able to win the game show.
- Plus there's a very wide line between screwball and idiot, and Daffy is the latter.
- Bugs on the other hand, was more or less already the Invincible Hero except now he's the Super Mode version of The Ace, him canonically being not just an astronaut, not just a pro football player, not only the former president of Mexico, but also the current/local Batman.
- And yet he still has his moments of failure - for all he's accomplished, he's terrible at things like basic home repair.
- Character Focus: Just like previous adaptations, Daffy is pretty much the focus of every single episode in the main storylines. His trying to develop a social life is a minor character arc.
- Characterization Marches On:
- This so far affects Lola the most; in Space Jam she was a tomboyish girl who loved sports and didn't take kindly to being hit on or being called "doll", here she's a Cloudcuckoolander with a Motor Mouth, constant mood swings, and a huge crush on Bugs.
- The Tasmanian Devil was always a sentient (if generally stupid) creature who was more than capable of giving other characters a fair chase while he tries to eat them. In this series... He's a dog. Nothing more. No speaking, no sentient intelligence. He's still a dangerous wild animal, but he is very quickly tamed and turned into Bugs' pet dog.
- Not necessarily canon, but the Merry Melody for "Newspaper Thief" does have him talking.
- Reconstructed in "The Ridiculous Journey", where he not only speaks but is back to his classic incarnation. Though it can be attributed to Animal Talk to a degree as the ones he speaks prominently with are Tweety and Sylvester, who themselves only speak directly to Hugo and Beaky Buzzard but no one else in the episode.
- Gossamer is no longer an angry, mindless monster and is instead a... polite, naive, little boy?
- His mother is also Witch Lezah. She looks like Witch Hazel, but she's not the crackling laughing mad witch always trying to kill someone for an ingredient to her potion anymore. Just a dotting black-sounding mother.
- The Chew Toy: The episode "Casa de Calma" puts Daffy back in this trope. All for a girl whose name he can't remember.
- Chickification: As stated above Lola is the exact opposite of who she was in Space Jam.
- Class Reunion: In "Reunion", Bugs helps Daffy try to better himself before his class reunion, but they eventually decide that Daffy should just lie about his life so far in order to impress his former classmates. But Daffy fibs soon become excessive, and Bugs becomes preoccupied with acquainting with all the high school graduates, because he never went to high school.
- Closer to Earth: Played straight with Daffy and Tina, but inverted with Bugs and Lola.
- Cloudcuckoolander: It should come to no surprise that a lot of characters are this since it's Looney Tunes, but of all characters Lola seems to be developing this the most.
- Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Bugs serves as this for Daffy, and potentially Lola as well.
- College Is High School Part 2: In "Rebel Without a Glove", Daffy ends up teaching a political science course at the local college. Bells ring to mark the start of classes.
- Comedic Sociopathy: You realize this is a show that has Daffy in it, right?
- Comically Missing the Point: Daffy does this a lot. One of the cases being how he believes that people don't give him respect because of his name and what it stands for.
- The Comically Serious: The stone-faced traffic cop who keeps showing up throughout "DMV".
- How he says "driver's license" is funny.
- Conspicuous Consumption: Daffy after he becomes rich in "Peel of Fortune".
- Consummate Liar: Daffy, revealed in "Reunion" to be able to make up ridiculous lies right on the spot and tell them with complete conviction. Unlike most examples of this trope, however, he doesn't manage his ability very well—he has to take Bugs to the reunion with him to keep track of all the lies he's told to different people, since they all contradict each other. He's even a convincing enough liar to fully believe his own Self-Serving Memory.
- Continuity Nod: A good example is in episode 10, "Eligible Bachelors", when Daffy confuses "literacy" with "littering" and says how it should be a crime. Bugs replies:
Bugs: "It is a crime. Remember you went to jail for it?"
- In an earlier episode, when Daffy is trying to help Gossamer win a talent show, he mentions "school is a lot like prison - and I should know, I've been to both".
- In "Double Date", Daffy makes business cards that list his job as wizard, a reference to the "Am I a wizard?" joke in "Jailbird and Jailbunny". In the same episode, Bugs mentions inventing the carrot-peeler while practicing some smooth talk while his date's in the woman's room.
- In "Members Only", Lola pulls out a tape recorder during her Rummage Fail. In "Double Date", she reveals she had it running when Bugs called himself her "boyfriend."
- In "Bugs and Daffy Get a Job", Daffy mentions that his "middle name's Sheldon... I tried going with Armando for a while, but it didn't stick."
- After getting a horrifying beak-job, Daffy gets decked by Tina (after calling hers ugly) and yells, "Call Doctor Weisburg!"
- "The Foghorn Leghorn Story" has one to "Working Duck" ("He destroyed your company, remember?")
- In "Semper Lie", Daffy mentions that he is a licensed cosmetologist (which is call back to "Beauty School").
- "Customer Service" has Daffy run down the list of previous jobs he's held in the series, and an interviewer mentions how impressive all of it sounds on paper.
- "SuperRabbit" has Bugs confessing to Daffy that he is actually from the planet Krypton (spelled with a "C"), but Daffy refuses to believe it, commenting on how he has already fallen for that once.
- It also reminds us that Bugs is Batman as well, which was shown in "Reunion."
- In "Peel of Fortune," after going broke, Bugs Bunny is forced to move back into his old rabbit hole from the original Looney Tunes.
- Convenient Decoy Cat: One appears in the copy room of the Spargle company to distract Daffy when he is chasing Bugs in "Off Duty Cop".
- Creepy Twins: Mac and Tosh.
- Crossdresser: What Bugs Bunny does best in the episode "Beauty School"; Daffy Duck included, though done as a Disguised in Drag. Daffy disguises himself as Tina to take a cosmetology test.
- In the episode "DMV", Daffy dressed as a blonde wigged school girl to get into a movie.
- Cucumber Facial: One of the services provided to Bugs and Daffy in "Casa de Calma".
- Cute Little Fangs: Sylvester's◊ been given a pair.
- Cut Phone Lines: Daffy thinks thinks Porky has done this as part of a plot to trap him in the house in "The Muh-Muh-Muh-Murder".
- A Day in the Limelight: "Point, Laser Point" is this for Sylvester, with Bugs and Daffy appearing in the B-story.
- The entire episode of "Ridiculous Journey" focuses on Sylvester, Tweety, AND Taz themselves without a B-story or Merry Melody to go with it.
- Deadpan Snarker: Bugs Bunny and Tina are the reigning champions in this.
- Delicious Distraction: In "Beauty School" Lola darkly vows to continue her intense pursuit of Bugs' car...and then she sees a cupcake store and pulls right in.
- Demoted to Extra: You could count the episodes Elmer Fudd is in on one hand.
- Department of Redundancy Department: In "Reunion":
Daffy: My web of lies has tangled me in a web of lies!
- Depending on the Writer: Bugs can either be a pitiable Only Sane Man or a smug Deadpan Snarker. Daffy is either an asshole or an idiot who doesn't know any better.
- If Tina appears in an episode, Daffy will usually be more sympathetic.
- Lola can either be a (somewhat) harmless Cloudcuckoolander or a genuine Yandere.
- Deus ex Machina: In "Peel of Fortune" when Bugs builds a time machine in a matter of seconds and goes back in time to undo the events of the episode.
- Did You Die?: Daffy asks this during Granny's story about her WWII spy days. Three times.
- Did You Get a New Haircut?: In "Bobcats on Three!", Bugs gains a ton of weight. Daffy can't tell what's changed until the very end of the episode.
- Digging Yourself Deeper: Daffy attempts to clear up his unintentional insult to the Crusher in prison, only to put himself in more danger. Even he wishes he can keep his mouth shut.
- Does it again in "Devil Dog".
- Disguised in Drag: One of the few running gags that can be carried from a Golden Age cartoon series to a modern-day sitcom without much sweat.
- Disney Villain Death: Subverted. The final fight of Granny's WWII flashback takes place on top of a blimp and the Nazi general does fall, but Tweety tied a rope around his leg and saved him. Though the same can probably not be said for the Mook he threw out of the blimp earlier...
- Disproportionate Retribution: Two words: "French Fries".
- Marvin's high school years were the most painful years of his life, so he has spent every moment since graduation plotting to destroy the Earth.
- Distaff Counterpart: Tina to Bugs and Lola to Daffy.
- Distracted by My Own Sexy: A running gag with Bugs, whenever he sees a mirror (usually after he's been disguised).
- The Ditz: Lola, and Daffy at times. Also Pete Puma.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: Episode 1. Throughout the episode (which was about 'best friends'), Bugs and Daffy go on a game show, lose because Daffy doesn't know Bugs that well, Bugs gets upset, Daffy gets banished to the car and is not made breakfast in the morning, Daffy becomes a Stalker with a Crush and tries to shower Bugs with gifts, and at the end the two make up.
- Episode 4 had Yosemite Sam stay over, which is like a friend staying over with a married couple. Seriously. Even Sam says to both of them Yeh know he means the world to yeh!
- In episode 19, Bugs becomes so addicted to a soft drink he breaks into Sam's home, since he sold him the drink, and threaten him for more, disturbingly similar to a drug addict's behaviour. The drink is strangely amphetamine-like, causing Bugs to go crazily over-productive and literally ask "You guys feeling itchy?". Subverted in that it turns out the soft drink was an illegal drug, referred to as "highly addictive chemicals".
- Daffy and Porky's attempts to stop him entail a battle with office supplies played exactly like a shoot-out, ending in Bugs holding Porky hostage, pointing a marker at his head, and threatening to write on his face if they don't hand over the Spargle. Porky is alarmed because it's permanent ink.
- In one episode, Daffy is convinced that the reason he is disliked by society is simply because he is a duck and tries to improve ducks' image.
- Don't Explain the Joke: The very last line of "I'm a Martian!"
- Doom It Yourself: "The Shelf" begins with Bugs refusing to pay the hardware store to install a shelf, insisting he can do it himself. By the end of the episode, he has demolished his house.
- Door Stop Baby: Bugs does this to a de-aged Daffy at the end of "Casa de Calma".
- Dope Slap: Towards the end of "That's My Baby," Bugs looks like he's about to facepalm but winds up doing this to Porky instead.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: Daffy has one as a drill instructor when he joins the Marines in "Semper Lie".
- Drives Like Crazy: Daffy and especially Lola.
- Dumbass Has a Point: Lezah wants Bugs to make friends with Gossamer and talk to him, but Daffy points out the flawed logic in that. This helps Lezah decide that he's the one that should help Gossamer.
Daffy: You want Bugs to talk to him? He doesn't know the first thing about making friends. He was born with friends! He's got too many friends! The only person who can help a weirdo like Gossamer is another weirdo.
- Dye or Die: In "Jailbird and Jailbunny", Daffy dyes himself and Bugs blond (or yellow) after they escape from prison. This is enough to stop a cop from recognizing them despite holding a wanted poster with their pictures on it, and Bugs confessing who they are.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Sylvester's first appeared (in this spin-off) as a cameo in Yosemite Sam's musical number.
- Early Installment Weirdness: Casa de Calma, which aired early in season 1, was completely different in tone than every other episode in the series. This is a rare justified example because that episode was created before the show was completely retooled.
- Ears as Hair: Lampshaded.
Bugs: I like your hair.
Lola: Thanks, heh. They're my ears.
- Egomaniac Hunter: This is what Blacque Jacque Shellacque appears to be in "Ridiculous Journey".
- Elevator Gag: In "Butte E. Fail", Wile E. Coyote is climbing a cliff to get at the Roadrunner. He feels around for a hold and stumbles onto an elevator on the cliff wall, which he then takes to the top.
- Enemy Mine: Sylvester and Tweety work together to escape the Tasmanian Devil when it gets inside Granny's house.
- Eskimos Aren't Real: In "Double Date" Lola, while crushing on Daffy for...complicated reasons, insists that Tina is a made-up name like Crabthar. Later, she poses as a waiter and introduces herself as Crabthar.
- Even Nerds Have Standards: It turns out that even Marvin and Pete, established losers in this particular continuity, refused to sit with Daffy in high school.
- Every Car Is a Pinto: Bugs' car explodes when he jumps out and it crashes into a tree.
- Everyone Went to School Together: It's established that Daffy went to high school with Porky, Marvin the Martian, and Pete Puma, at least.
- Oddly enough, Bugs never attended their high school—or any high school—because he was too busy having an unconventional childhood.
- Evil Laugh: Daffy utters one after declaring that he will become Bugs' best friend.
Bugs: Were you just laughing?
Cecil: What? No.
Cecil: Oh, don't be silly. I mean, do I look like a cartoon villain? (smirks evilly at the audience)
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a show about the Looney Tunes.
- Exact Words : Bugs is told to limit his coffee ingestion to just one cup a day; he's next seen drinking a cup the size of a large pot.
- Expy: Tina Russo, Daffy's new girlfriend, is essentially a new version of Melissa Duck from two old shorts.
- Gustavo from "Pizzaribba" seems to be one for Slowpoke Rodriguez.
- Though Slowpoke makes an appearance later on in the series. As the sheriff of a small Mexican village.
- Extreme Doormat: Porky.
- Facepalm: Bugs does this so much in "That's My Baby" that he thinks he's starting to bruise his forehead. So he slaps Porky's forehead instead.
- Faceship: Daffy's car is a parade float shaped like himself.
- Fake-Out Make-Out: Lola does this to Bugs when she is tailing Daffy in "Double Date".
- Family-Friendly Firearms:
- Averted in a step away from the Looney Tunes legacy of using Ash Face; when Granny reminisces about being a spy in Nazi occupied France, the German soldiers are shooting real MP40s at her and are really trying to kill her. Not that they even come close to succeeding.
- Similarly in the episode "Semper Lie" when Bugs is in prison for suspicion of being an Albanian spy The US Marines (and Daffy) armed with actual assault rifles rescue him all while being shot at by Albanian guards with AK-47s; Daffy even throws an actual grenade at them.
- Also with Yosemite Sam, whose trigger-happy tendencies are no longer tolerated by authorities, and he's forbidden to use his classic cowboy-style pistols or any other gun.
- Fan Disservice: Five words: Yosemite Sam in a diaper.
- "Off-Duty Cop" had Yosemite Sam naked as a jaybird being chased by FBI agents.
- "Year of the Duck", Porky in a speedo.
- Fanservice Extra: There's actually quite a bit.
- Falling in Love Montage: Bugs and Lola have one in Paris.
- Fawlty Towers Plot: "Semper Lie". Bugs' lie to get out of going to the peach festival with Porky snowballs until he ends up in an Albanian prison. At one point Speedy warns Bugs against going through with it.
- Felony Misdemeanor:
- Daffy's entire code of ethics. (Which only apply to everyone else in the universe, not himself.) He spent a whole episode accusing all the neighbors of stealing his newspaper and trying to pin down the criminal (actually, he forgot to keep paying for his subscription) and dramatically ended his friendship with Porky because Porky ate some of his french fries, thinking they were for the table. ( They were for the table.)
- In "Jailbird and Jailbunny", Daffy gets arrested for tossing a soda can into the Grand Canyon. He tries, pathetically, to dig himself out during his trial, and he and Bugs end up getting into a soda-spitting fight. They both get thrown into prison for contempt of court and are forced to work in a chain gang. (To be fair, they were warned.)
- First Kiss: Bugs and Lola get one in "Eligible Bachelors" to end their Falling in Love Montage.
- Flanderization: Daffy Duck is an example of this. Every episode he seems to be getting more idiotic and more of a Jerkass.
- Flopsy: "The Shell Game" has Cecil get hit by Bugs's car and have his shell cracked. Bugs soon uncovers that Cecil is always running into people's cars while wearing a cracked shell so he can sue or guilt-trip them out of thousands of dollars to get his shell "fixed".
- Food Slap: Daffy remembers doing this to Porky at high school by pushing a plate of cake into his face. As it turns out, it was actually Big Man on Campus Porky who pushed the cake into Daffy's face.
- Forged Message: In one episode, Daffy and Porky get into a feud over who ordered the french fries at Pizzaribba. Bugs wants them to make up with each other so he can go to a football game that Porky has the tickets for, so he sends each of them a gift basket and an apology card with each other's names. At first, this seems to work, but then they get back to arguing with each other. When Bugs flat-out admits he wrote the cards and that he doesn't care about their feud and just wants to see the game, Porky snaps and rips up the tickets so none of them can go.
- For Inconvenience, Press "1": Cecil pretends to be voice mail in "Customer Service".
- For Want of a Nail: In "Best Friends Redux", it turns out that Bugs becoming friends with Rodney Rabbit was a huge factor in Daffy becoming friends with Bugs. Daffy and Bugs first met each other in a post office when Bugs was delivering a letter to Rodney. Thus when Daffy went back in time to prevent Bugs and Rodney from becoming friends in the episode, he effectively Ret Gone himself from Bugs' memory as Bugs never went to the post office to deliver a letter. In extension, Daffy Ret Gone himself from most of his friends and neighbors' memories as well since they only knew about Daffy since he was friends with Bugs.
- Four-Fingered Hands: Played straight and averted in the same scene (the scene where Daffy takes Zachary to see a war movie instead of Marty the Whale) in "That's My Baby."
- Freudian Excuse: In "Newspaper Thief," Bugs seriously considers this to be the case for Daffy.
"What did your parents do to you?"
- In "Fish and Visitors":
Daffy: (about getting Yosemite Sam to leave) We need to fill this house with fighting, and resentment, and so much tension that no one could stand to live there! ...At least that's what my parents did.
- Freudian Trio: Daffy is the Id, Porky the Ego and Bugs the Superego.
- "Friends" Rent Control: Addressed in "Peel of Fortune." Daffy asks where Bugs gets all his money and Bugs explains he invented the carrot peeler. We see him get a check for in the mail during the episode, making it quickly obvious how Bugs can afford to not work and still buy whatever he wants when he wants. The same episode implies if he need to, he could invent other things to cash in on.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Few of Daffy's friends could stand being around him.
- The Friends Who Never Hang: Bugs and Tina barely interacted in the show and when they do interact it was brief. There hasn't been an episode where it focuses on them together although their Distaff Counterpart, Daffy and Lola,do.
- Fun with Acronyms: Granny served in the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps, or the WAAC.
Daffy: "I hate to tell you, lady, but you're still a WAAC."
- Furry Confusion: Porky enjoys eating pepperoni.
- Furry Denial: Tina Russo's sister's baby, Zachary, is never referred to as a duckling even though he is one. He is instead always referred to as a baby as if he were a human baby. Also, he's drinking milk, which human and other mammal babies drink, not ducklings or any other baby bird for that matter.
- Furry Reminder: In "Best Friends", Daffy eats a raw fish and swallows it whole like a real-life duck would.
- Gender-Blender Name: In the resort episode, Bugs and Daffy go in for massages. Daffy insists that he get a massage from Leslie while Bugs gets stuck with Joe...so of course, it turns out "Joe" is Josephine (an attractive woman) and Leslie is a giant hairy man who twists Daffy into a metaphorical pretzel.
- Indeed, there are multiple minor characters in the show named "Leslie". Every single one so far has been male.
- Genius Ditz: Apparently, Lola. In Season 2, Episode 11, she makes a passing remark that she babysat as a way to pay for medical school.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Has its own page, now.
- Girlish Pigtails: Petunia.
- Give Geeks a Chance: Played with in the 'Table for One' video. Speedy tells Porky that the reason he's dateless is because of his geeky interests, including comic books, video games and Harry Potter, and that he'll do better if changing his image and mentality. In the end, Porky gets surrounded by several sexy women who like him already, and Speedy can only grin sheepishly and admit Porky's way might work for the pig after all.
- Giving Them the Strip: Yosemite Sam slips out of his Modesty Towel to escape from the police in "Off-Duty Cop".
- Go-Karting with Bowser: Reportedly the major premise of the show is that everyone in the Looney Tunes world is friends and they live in the suburbs together.
- Most notably, Bugs's rival Yosemite Sam is their annoying-but-friendly next-door neighbor, and Taz is now his pet.
- Also, Elmer Fudd is the local news anchor.
- Averted with Sylvester and Tweety, the former still consistently trying to eat the later.
- Wile E. and Road Runner haven't changed much, except they're now in CGI. (Though Wile. E Coyote has been shown as normal animation, in Witch Lezah's psychiatry waiting room reading a self help book called "What are you really chasing?")
- Good Old Fisticuffs: In "The Foghorn Leghorn Story" episode two fights break out—Foghorn with Daffy and Bugs with Sam.
- Goofy Print Underwear: In "SuperRabbit", Superabbit (Bugs) rips a suit of powered armour off Lex Luthor (Elmer Fudd) to reveal that Lex is wearing boxers with the Superman symbol on them.
- G-Rated Drug: An energy drink called Spargle. Buying it gets treated like a drug sell—actually, it's even called a "deal".
- Averted, it turns out it actually is an illegal drug.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: The writers seem bent on Lampshade Hanging and parodying this with Porky Pig, though the situation previewed leads to the mental conundrum of what state of dress Bugs and Daffy are supposed to be in.
- In one episode, Daffy wears pants that he calls "mall pants" to the mall, but he doesn't wear a mall shirt along with it. When he loses his mall pants, Bugs notes that he forgot to put on mall underpants.
Bugs: "Mall pants"?
Bugs: Then why no mall shirt?
- And subverted in "Eligible Bachelors" in which Bugs forgoes his normal mode of dress (which is to say his birthday suit) and puts on a tuxedo for the bachelor auction. Porky remains in his normal partial dress, and Daffy doesn't bother changing.
- In "Spread Those Wings And Fly" Daffy becomes obsessed with becoming a pilot and starts wearing the uniform. When Bugs asks why Daffy says he's dressing for the job he wants instead of the job he has. Bugs observes Daffy has no job, to which Daffy replies "That's why I'm usually nude."
- Handcar Pursuit: In "Ridiculous Journey", Blacque Jacque Shellacque uses a handcar to chase the pets after they hop aboard a freight train.
- Hand or Object Underwear: Yosemite Sam covers himself with a cardboard box while fleeing naked from the FBI through the Spargle building in "Off-Duty Cop".
- Handshake Substitute: Pepe delivers one in the form of kissing the cheeks of both Lola and Bugs.
- Helium Speech: Daffy starts speaking like this in "Mr. Wiener" after he inhales a tank of helium to stretch is stomach to win a hotdog eating contest.
- Here We Go Again: The end of "Jailbird and Jailbunny" has Daffy throwing a can of soda out of the car after just being released from prison. The cops (and Porky, promptly bringing out his pants) notice.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Bugs and Daffy.
- Highdive Hijinks: Daffy suffers numerous diving-related indignities in "Casa de Calma".
- High-Pressure Emotion: "Blow My Stack".
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Parodied in The Stinger of "Newspaper Thief" when the carrot pie that got stuck to the ceiling in the Cold Open finally comes unstuck and falls on Bugs' head:
Daffy: Ironic. Done in by his own creation. (Daffy's parade float crashes through the wall and runs him over)
- Homage: While the show in general puts the Looney Tunes series in a different environment than the norm, "Casa de Calma" has a number of antics that are reminiscent of the classic cartoons.
- Honest Advisor: The reason Foghorn Leghorn keeps hiring Daffy.
- Honor Before Reason / I Owe You My Life : Yosemite Sam hates owing things to others, so he tries to repay Bugs for changing his smoke detector's battery by baking him a carrot cake... which ends in a fire that Bugs has to save Sam from. The short cowboy even references these troops.
- Hotter and Sexier: The Merrie Melodies appear to parody this often, whether with Sam's backup singers for "Blow My Stack", the female bird aliens dancers in "I'm a Martian", or Fudd's attempt to be seductive with "Grilled Cheese."
- "How Did You Know?" "I Didn't.": When Porky meets Tina for the first time.
Tina: Hey, Porky.
Porky: How did you know my name?
Tina: I didn't. It was more of an observation.
- Humor Dissonance: In-universe. In Year of the Duck, Porky tells the old "I just flew in from New York and boy are my arms tired" gag. Lola finds this joke so funny that she spends the next 30 seconds crying in laughter and even falling out of her chair as if it was the funniest thing she ever heard in her life, all while explaining the punch line. Bugs, on the other hand, doesn't even chuckle.
- Hurricane of Euphemisms: Daffy comes up with a whole bunch of euphemisms for "jail" in "Jailbird and Jailbunny".
- Hypocritical Humor: Daffy spends all of one episode despising Porky because they went out for lunch one day and Porky ate some of the french fries (Daffy insisted they came with his sandwich; Porky thought they were for the whole table). At the end of the episode, Speedy reveals that Porky was right; Daffy shrugs, then takes a bite out of Porky's pizza. Pretty much what you'd expect from his Jerkass behavior in this series.
- As a matter of fact, Daffy runs on this trope, though it's hard to say how much of it he owes to his Jerkass side and how much to his Cloud Cuckoolander side.
- I Always Wanted to Say That: In "Working Duck":
Daffy: Hold my calls, Carol. (walks into his office) "Hold my calls!" I've always wanted to say "Hold my calls!" And now someone's holding my calls! Who's calling me? I don't know! I don't care!
- I Am Not Weasel: Daffy thinks Speedy is a rat.
- Mac and Tosh occasionally get mistaken for squirrels or mice, to which they respond in deadpan unison, "We're gophers."
- "I Am" Song: "I'M A MARTIAN! Not a dead, white shark, I'M A MARTIAN!"
- I Can't Believe I'm Saying This: After Sylvester explains his plan for getting home in "Ridiculous Journey":
Tweety: "You're a genius, puddy tat! <beat> Whoa! I can't believe I just said that!"
- I Can't Believe It's Not Heroin: Spargle in "Off-Duty Cop" (although it's more like I Can't Belive It's Not Speed).
- I Just Want to Have Friends: Porky's main motivation.
- Insistent Terminology: In "It's a Handbag," Daffy repeatedly corrects people who refer to his handbag as a purse.
- I Was Quite a Looker: Granny in her WW2 spy years.
- I Was Young and Needed the Money: Daffy's lame excuse for stealing the automatic carrot peeler plans.
- Idiot Ball: Bugs seems to be only person in the entire world who did not know on first sight that Poochie is not a dog.
- I'll Take Two Beers Too: In "Beauty School", Porky orders two of everything at Speedy's restuarant, causing Speedy to ask him if he's finally got a girl. Porky replies "No".
- I'm a Humanitarian: Porky loves Pepperoni and is mortified when he discovers what it's made out of. What does he do in his depression? He eats more pepperoni.
- Impairment Shot: Sam wakens to the sight of Bugs after falling and knocking himself silly in a hole dug by Taz.
- Implausible Deniability: In "Gossamer is Awesomer", Daffy drives through a papier-mâché statue of Gossamer in his parade float, then immediately announces "Winnie Yang did that!".
- Impossible Hourglass Figure: The female backup dancers in the Merrie Melody: "Blow My Stack".
- In several episodes of season 2 when the character designs were modified, Lola bears a thin waist and a large chest.
- In some early episodes of season 2 Bugs’ waist was also thinned along with Daffy.
- Petunia Pig in "Here Comes the Pig".
- Impossibly Delicious Food: The dishes Porky cooks from his grandmother's recipes in episode "Bobcats on Three!" are this, especially to Bugs. The principal ingredient is butter.
- In Name Only: The producer of the show has made it clear that this show will be nothing like the original shorts, since every attempt to imitate them has led to failure.
- In one interview, the creators flat-out admitted that they created Lola's personality from scratch based on her voice actress's style of comedy. They've never seen Space Jam.
- In the Christmas episode Lola directs her own version of A Christmas Carol. This trope inevitably happens.
- In Touch with His Feminine Side: Daffy suffers from serious gender confusion.
- Incredibly Lame Fun: Probably because of his exciting youth, Bugs is bizarrely entertained by things like high school reunions, being stuck in prison, and working at an office.
- Inelegant Blubbering: Lola does this in "Rebel Without a Glove".
- Inherently Funny Words: Duty.
- Insane Troll Logic: Pretty much Daffy's default thought process.
- Interspecies Romance: The episode "Casa De Calma" has Daffy swooning over sexy actress Starlett Johansson, but in the end Bugs wins.
- Lola hooked up with Pepe Le Pew by the end of "Members Only" (albeit briefly), and later tried to the same with Daffy in "Double Date".
- Speaking of Pepe Le Pew, in this adaption he goes for human women rather than, what he assumed were, skunks.
- Speedy develops a crush on Bugs in drag in "Beauty School".
- Porky has had, not one, but two human love interests, although he loses them thanks to the Reset Button. Foghorn Leghorn, being an in-universe celebrity, is often surrounded by human girls.
- Zod and Faora in "SuperRabbit". He's a duck and she's human... er, Cryptonian (with a 'C').
- Inventor of the Mundane: Bugs' wealth comes from his invention of the carrot peeler.
- Ironic Echo: In "Casa de Calma":
"I'll send you a postcard from our honeymoon!"
- Irrevocable Message: In "You've Got Hate Mail", Daffy accidentally sends a hate-filled email to everyone he knows (except Porky). He then attempts to delete the email from Tina's computer before she can read it.
- It's All About Me: Daffy Duck.
- It Makes Sense in Context: The episode "Semper Lie" is this. Basic summary; Bugs tells Porky a lie to avoid going to the Peach Festival that ends up with Daffy joining the Marines and Bugs being arrested for suspicion of being an Albanian spy.
- It's Been Done: In "Peel of Fortune", Daffy tries to come up with an invention that will make him rich. His first three inventions are sliced bread, toilet paper and the suitcase.
- I've Heard of That — What Is It?: In "Bugs & Daffy Get a Job", Dr. Weisberg tells Daffy that he has a deviated septum. Daffy's reaction is to snap "I do not!" and slap Weisberg, before asking "What's a septum?".
- Jerkass: Daffy Duck. Still self-absorbed as he was in the post-1948 cartoons, now with 50% more Rabbit-agitating.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While Daffy does retain all his vices, he's shown a nicer side as well. For example, he could have easily abandoned Bugs upon learning truth behind Taz, but his first reaction instead of running away is to save Bugs. Upon seeing what Taz means to Bugs, he helps them escape instead while using himself as distraction. Also, his time spent with Granny shows this side of him again. And even though he robbed Bugs, who had to sell his house, Daffy doesn't hesitate to buy it so they can continue living together. And of the second season premiere, realizing that winning isn't everything after becoming a coach to Gossamer and his friends, happy that his kids are having fun.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Again, Daffy himself in "The Float".
- Cecil Turtle on the other hand, is a to-the-core jerk.
- Jerk Jock: Porky Pig, of all people, at least during high school (his chief target of abuse was Daffy).
- Kangaroo Court: In "SuperRabbit", the tribunal sitting in judgement on Zod, Faora and Thumpinator pronounce them guilty before Jor-El has finished his opening statement. Jor-El, who is prosecuting, expresses his exasperation that they keep doing this.
- Karma Houdini: Daffy in "The Float". Sure, the yacht that he bought with Porky's money gets sold and the money is returned to Porky, but Porky still has to help Daffy rebuild his float, even though he donated his kidney to Daffy in spite of everything and is still weak from the surgery.
- Lola in "The Black Widow".
- Karmic Trickster: Bugs reverts to this characterization when Cecil Turtle pushes him too far.
- Kick Chick: Granny, in her younger days.
- Kick Me Prank: This happens at least once to Gossamer.
- Kneel Before Zod: Daffy (as General Zod) has making Bugs kneel before him as his major motivation (and even utters the actual phrase) in "SuperRabbit": the episode being a Whole Plot Reference to Superman II.
- Law of Disproportionate Response: Parodied with Daffy, who once went into a Heroic BSOD because Porky ate several of his french fries.
- Left the Background Music On: Porky is carrying a tape player in his coat pocket, which provides the music for the next scene with all of Daffy's shenanigans in "Off-Duty Cop".
- In "Itsy Bitsy Gopher", Daffy makes a dramatic statement regarding Tosh's fate to Mac, accompanied by a dramatic organ sting. Daffy and Mac look round to she Lola playing the organ in the corner of the antiques store.
- Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!
- Literal-Minded: Pete Puma in "Sunday Night Slice" when he tries to apply for the job:
Pete: I'm here to apply for the job.
Bugs: Oh, great. Take a seat. (Pete takes a chair and carries it toward the exit) No. I mean sit down.
Pete: Oh... right! (sits on the floor while still holding the chair)
- Little Black Dress: Lola wears one when she goes out with Bugs in "Double Date."
- Logo Joke: At the end, Porky Pig pops out of the Warner Bros Animation logo and says his trademark "That's all folks" line. Daffy, Taz and Bugs also do it too. Lola attempts to, but falls out of the logo.
- Love Makes You Crazy-er: Lola.
- Lower Deck Episode: "Ridiculous Journey" which is a roadtrip involving the "pet" characters journeying home ala Homeward Bound while meeting other Looney Tunes characters that haven't been used in the show before, instead of the regular cast of Bugs and Daffy.
- Lucky Rabbit's Foot: In a nod to several of the old shorts, Bugs gets into a football game by offering his "luck" to Yosemite Sam, who's participating in the field goal contest.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Tina and Daffy.
- Meaningful Echo: In "Double Date", Daffy keeps using the phrase "hook it up", and Bugs tells him that nobody says that. It turns out that Tina does.
- Memetic Badass: In-universe, Daffy claims to be this. He's a pathological liar though. Bugs is the real deal, having been among other things an astronaut, the (interim) President of Mexico, a medal-winning Olympic athlete, and Batman.
- Not to mention a Nobel prize winner and inventor of the carrot peeler.
- Foghorn Leghorn sings about his badassedness in his Merry Melody, "Cock of the Walk."
- Metaphorgotten: Daffy is sometimes guilty of this.
- The Merrie Melodies segment "Giant Robot Love" is an extended version of this in song, as Daffy attempts to compare being in love to a giant robot.
- The Millennium Age of Animation
- Mirror Monologue: Used quite a bit; Bugs in "Members Only" and "Double Date", Porky in "Beauty School" (pretending to have a conversation with himself), and Daffy in "To Bowl or Not to Bowl" (in a dark window instead of a mirror).
- "Mission: Impossible" Cable Drop: Lola does it to break into Bugs' house in the song "We Are In Love".
- Mistaken for Cheating: In "Beauty School", Lola sees a woman (actually Bugs in drag) leaving Bugs' house and getting into Bugs' car and immediately assumes that Bugs is cheating on her.
- Mistaken for Gay: In an attempt to get sent back to jail, Bugs asks an officer why he isn't suspicious about Daffy and he being chained together. He responds with "Your personal lives are your business."
- Mistaken for Murderer: In "The Muh-Muh-Muh-Murder", Daffy becomes convinced that Porky is the Suburban Strangler and that he has been selected as the Strangler's next victim.
- Mistaken for Spies: The lies Bugs tells to get out of going to the Peach Festival in "Semper Lie" ultimately leads to him being arrested as a spy in Albania.
- Moment Killer: In "Eligible Bachelors" once Bugs gets Lola to stop talking they get to share a romantic montage together, but then Lola ruins the mood by talking again.
- Money Fetish: After becoming rich in "Peel of Fortune", Daffy is shown rolling around in a pile of cash on his bed.
- Monumental Theft: In "Eligible Bachelors" Colonel Frankenheimer attempts to steal the Eifel Tower by hooking it to a zeppelin and flying it to Germany.
- Morality Pet: As noted in the Jerkass entry, Bugs seems to be the only one that Daffy shows any REAL sign of compassion to. As well as Tina, he once put on a whole lie to prove to her father he was successful, not for the sake of his ego, but because he was afraid of losing her. Gossamer and Foghorn also tend to bring out the hidden gold in Daffy's heart.
- Most Common Card Game: The 'clueless player' variant. One episode opens with Daffy asking Bugs if he has any threes. They're playing chess.
- Motor Mouth: Lola.
- Bugs while high on energy drinks in "Off-Duty Cop".
- Mr. Imagination: Daffy, although the line between "daydream" and "reality" is considerably blurred from his point of view (he really thinks he's a wizard, for instance).
- Mundane Made Awesome: Daffy Duck: The Wizard
- Must Have Caffeine: Bugs in "Off-Duty Cop".
- My Eyes Are Up Here: Both Daffy and Speedy end up saying this to different women in "The Shelf" - the former when he loses his towel in front of Tina after coming out of the shower, and the latter after Lola claims to have X-ray vision.
- Mythology Gag: Bugs' birthday is July 27th. This is the date that his short A Wild Hare premiered in 1940, also establishing his long running rivalry with Elmer Fudd. Daffy's birthday, April 17th, is determined by his own theater debut in Porky's Duck Hunt.
- Narcissist: Daffy, according to Bugs. Interestingly, he does display many of the traits that mark narcissism in reality.
- Neat Freak: Porky. His reorganization of Bugs's house in "Gossamer is Awesomer" drives Bugs round the bend.
- Never Say "Die": Averted by Daffy in "Beauty School".
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Bugs spends an entire episode trying to get Porky to be more assertive and not agree to every up-sell that comes his way (including paying for free stickers). When does Porky finally assert himself? Refusing insurance on his rental car. Three guesses what happens next, and the first two don't count.
- Similarly, he tries to help Porky have more fun at work, and Porky ends up having too much fun and gets fired.
- Bugs indirectly does it in "Gribbler's Quest," Yosemite takes Daffy to group therapy because of his online shopping addiction and as Daffy keeps attending he becomes a better person, much to the enjoyment of his friends. Meanwhile, Bugs gets addicted to a video game that takes up most of his time. Daffy thinks that Bugs has a video game problem so he tries to help him. But Bugs reveals that he doesn't play the game because he has a problem but because he finds it fun to play. So this leads Daffy into thinking that he doesn't shop online because he has problem but because he thinks it's fun. Because he thinks there's nothing wrong with himself, Daffy goes back to his regular self.
- In "SuperRabbit", Superabbit (Bugs) balls up Lex Luthor (Elmer Fudd)'s power suit and bats it into outr space. Lex points out that he has just sent an unstable nuclear power source into orbit. Sure enough, the suit explodes freeing Zod and the others from the Phantom Zone.
- No Escape but Down: Daffy and Bugs escape from the prison guards by jumping off a cliff into the river in "Jailbird and Jailbunny". (Or rather Daffy jumps off the cliff and Bugs goes along because they are shackled together.)
- No Swastikas: The German soldiers seen in Granny's flashbacks to World War II use generic black cross symbols on their flags... which Nazis did sometimes use as symbols in real life, as well as swastikas.
- Non-Mammal Mammaries: Tina. In fact when Daffy used a wig and makeup to disguise himself as Tina "Beauty School" the only visible difference was that the fake 'Tina' was flat chested.
- Non-Mammalian Hair: Tina
- Noodle Incident: Bugs has a Nobel Prize, but we never learn what he got it for.
- Not to mention his stint as Interim President of Mexico.
- Not Listening to Me, Are You?: In the first episode, when Bugs tries to tell Daffy about his childhood, he switches to Superman's origin story to get his attention. It succeeds, but backfires when Daffy believes every word.
"You're from the planet Krypton?"
- Not So Above It All: In one episode, Daffy and Porky get into a fight over french fries. Bugs tries to fix things, and even sends fake apologies to each of them... not because he wants them to be friends again but because Porky just got tickets to the big football playoff.
- Nothing Exciting Ever Happens Here: According to Granny, the neighborhood was quite boring before Daffy moved in. The fact that he livens things up makes Granny enjoy having him as a neighbor.
- Nutritional Nightmare: In "The Stud, the Nerd, the Average Joe, and the Saint", when Speedy Gonzales is helping Daffy train to run a marathon, he questions Daffy's diet when Daffy drinks root beer sodas as his "energy drink". Daffy reveals he eats a hot dog with a ton of powdered sugar on it for breakfast, for lunch he eats a deep-fried turkey sandwich on wheat with powdered sugar on it, and for dinner he eats a casserole with powdered sugar on the top and bottom layer and baby back ribs and marshmallows in the center, and after cooking it in a microwave, he sprinkles more powdered sugar on it. Speedy was visually disgusted by Daffy's diet. Also, Daffy's idea for a "protein bar" is a tube of cookie dough. When Speedy tells Daffy to eat eggs for breakfast before his race, Daffy does so by placing the eggs on the bottom layer of his powdered sugar casserole.
- Object Ceiling Cling: Daffy accidentally flings a carrot pie onto the ceiling - where it sticks - at the start of "Newspaper Thief". It becomes a Brick Joke at the very end of the episode.
- Obnoxious In-Laws: Inverted with Lola's parents who like Bugs and want him to marry Lola.
- Obsession Song: "We Are In Love".
- Odd Couple: Can a rabbit and duck live in the same house without getting each other blasted?
- Oh, Crap: Far too many moments.
- Sylvester finding that Tweety did indeed "taw" a Tasmanian Devil behind them, for one.
- Old Soldier: After being appointed "General of Pizza" in "Sunday Night Slice", Daffy becomes a parody of this trope.
- Older Than They Look: Tweety
- One-Hour Work Week: Averted in a pretty amusing way; Bugs invented the carrot peeler and gets enough checks delivered every week to buy whatever he wants. (Daffy doesn't work because he keeps getting fired from jobs, so if the plot requires him to purchase anything, he steals from Bugs or Porky.) Though Bugs will buy him things, if just to shut him up, such as a replacement handbag (Though he actually bought him a clutch, much to Daffy's chagrin)
- The One Who Wears Shoes: Out of the animal characters, Lola's parents in season 2.
- Only Sane Man: Bugs and Tina are arguably the most normal characters of the show.
- Season 2 sees Bugs shying away from this trope.
- While having their own quirks, Porky and Speedy can usually be counted on to provide sensible advice.
- The Operators Must Be Crazy: "Customer Service". Cecil Turtle disconnects Bugs' cable service just so he can screw with him when he calls.
- Organ Autonomy: Yosemite Sam's moustache in the Merrie Melodies song "Moostache" in "Itsy Bitsy Gopher".
- Out of Order: "The Foghorn Leghorn Story" (which aired ninth) almost definitely took place after "Working Duck" (which aired twentieth), since Foghorn's assistant references the events of "Working Duck" in the former. This is the most obvious example, but it's not the only one. It's not a huge problem, due to the show's episodic nature, but what continuity there is can get a bit screwy at times.
- Panty Shot: Starlett Johansson gets one◊ in "Casa de Calma."
- Marvin the Martian gets one in "I'm A Martian". And they glow.
- Papa Wolf: In the Merry Melody "Yellow Bird", Crusher beats the tar out of Sylvester for ruining his daughter's sand castle.
- The Password Is Always Swordfish: Tina's computer password is her mother's maiden name.
- In "Gribbler's Quest," Bugs changes the password on his computer so Daffy won't go online shopping but Daffy correctly guess the new password is "carrot". So Bugs change it again and Daffy correctly guess it was "carrot1". By the end of the episode, Bugs new password is "carrot3", which Daffy correctly guessed again.
- Phoney Call: Bugs does this is "Semper Lie", calling up Speedy and pretending to be speaking to his (non-existent) sister Viola. Speedy is Genre Savvy enough to work out what is going on and play along.
- Phony Degree: Inverted when Bugs is affected by the narcotic beverage Spargle, and rips up Dr Weisberg's completely valid diploma on the grounds that Syracuse is "a basketball school".
- Pin-Pulling Teeth: Daffy does while storming an Albanian prison to rescue Bugs in "Semper Lie".
- Plagiarism In Fiction: When Daffy learned Bugs lives off royalties from having invented the carrot peeler, he stole Bugs' plans for an automatic carrot peeler. At first, Bugs wasn't worried because nobody other than him ate carrots often enough to need the automatic peeler (which was the reason Bugs never marketed it before) but it soon changed and Daffy was living the good life until a mechanical flaw caused the people who bought the automatic carrot peelers to demand a refund. Daffy could have avoided this trouble by following the project's seventh step but he was too lazy to read beyond step 3. A Reset Button Ending saved the day and Bugs, who remembers the whole mess, decided not to tell Daffy about the carrot peeler.
- The Pollyanna: Porky
- Pooled Funds: Daffy, in classic Daffy style, in "Peel of Fortune".

- Ready for Lovemaking:
- Elmer Fudd of all people does this pose at the end of the "Grilled Cheese" music video.
- Pepe Le Pew does this a lot too, in "Member's Only" and the Merrie Melody "Skunk Funk". Then again, it's Pepe Le Pew, what else would you expect from him?
- Real Award, Fictional Character: Bugs Bunny is awarded a Nobel Prize in "The Shelf." Subverted when this genius bunny succeeds in demolishing his entire house while building a shelf to display his award.
- Reality Ensues : Yosemite Sam can't carry his pistols anymore due to gun control laws.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: During their first date, Daffy obviously lies about himself to try to impress Tina. Tina responds by simply guessing what Daffy's like - accurately listing all of his flaws. Daffy isn't the slightest bit insulted.
Daffy: Wow, you're good.
- Recycled IN SPACE!: It's Looney Tunes AS A SITCOM!
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Taz, until Speedy domesticates him.
- Retired Badass: Granny of all people. She was an Action Girl spy during WWII.
- Role Reprisal:
- The most obvious is Jeff Bergman, who reprises his role of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Tweety and Foghorn Leghorn from Tiny Toon Adventures, plus Box Office Bunny, Invasion of the Carrot Snatchers, Blooper Bunny and even Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue.
- Bob Bergen returns as Porky Pig
- June Foray, the eldest of the actors and actresses, reprises her role as Granny, but she was unable to reprise her role as Witch Hazel, now Lezah.
- RAGA FRAGA BAGAH TAZ BOOYAGA RAGA NAGAYA *PFFFFT*
- After a long time, Petunia Pig will finally make her appearance in The Looney Tunes Show. To top it all off, Grey DeLisle will be reprising her role from the Looney Tunes webtoons.
- Unfortunately, Grey DeLisle didn't voice her in the end. The role was handed to Katy Mixon instead.
- Rule of Symbolism: Parodied in a flashback, where Daffy releases rats in celebration of Columbus Day.
Daffy: What? The rats represented the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. If they didn't get it, that's their problem.
- Running Gag: Daffy has taken to asking, "What is this, communist Russia?" or "What happened to this country?" when someone requests simple information from him.
- People commenting that Bugs makes for an ugly woman when he dresses in drag.
- In season 1, Daffy would mistake a male child for a female, but in season 2, he mistook a female pony as a male.
- Sanity Slippage: Porky Pig to varying degrees, especially in “Bugs & Daffy Get a Job”.
- Bugs gets this in "Off-Duty Cop" after being addicted to a Coffee Alternative called Spargle, only to run out.
- Bugs gets another one in "The Shelf." All that attempt to work on a mere shelf for his Nobel Prize, only to go so far as to destroying his own home and looking like he came out of a Slasher movie. Thankfully, Tina managed to rebuild Bugs' house.
- Sassy Black Woman: Witch Lezah is technically green, but she has the voice and mannerisms of one.
- Satellite Love Interest: Unlike Lola and Tina, Petunia has no definable characteristics beyond being her male counterpart's girlfriend.
- Saving Christmas: In "A Christmas Carol", Lola attempts to restore the town's Christmas spirit by staging a production of A Christmas Carol, while Foghorn Leghorn attempts to save Christmas by installing a giant fan at the North Pole (It Makes Sense in Context).
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Bugs and Lola.
- Scrabble Babble: In "Itsy Bitsy Gopher", Daffy attempts to play "dovarg", before announcing that he is going to the kitchen as he feels totally "dovarg". In a Strange Minds Think Alike moment, we later learn that Lola invented a type of sandwich that she calls a dovarg. And, at the end of the episode, Dr. Weinstein mentions it is the name of an anti-inflammatory preparation.
- Sdrawkcab Name: Witch Lezah backwards is Witch Hazel, who was the original Looney Tunes witch.
- Self-Deprecation: Daffy willingly admits he's a terrible person several times.
- Self-Serving Memory: Daffy in "Reunion". He's managed to convince even himself that his "memories" of being the school Jerk Jock and getting all the girls are true.
- Seemingly Profound Fool: Daffy, whenever he becomes Honest Advisor to Foghorn Leghorn.
- Semper Fi: Daffy joins the Marine Corps in "Semper Lie".
- Serious Business: Daffy, in this show, takes everything way too seriously. He thinks that getting his newspaper is more important than anything (he doesn't read it, he makes his parade float with it) and thinks that if it doesn't arrive one day that means someone stole it, which is justifiable for a neighborhood intervention. He nearly ends his friendship with Porky Pig because he took some fries from his basket- the fries were for everyone.
- Shaggy Dog Story: Lola tells one about how she broke her leg.
- She Is Not My Girlfriend: Bugs to Lola which may have changed after Double Date
- Ship Tease: Lola and Daffy. Both are ditzy Cloudcuckoolanders with a tendency to lose focus, and in "Itsy Bitsy Gopher" both seemed to understand each other on the spot (even more than their respective canon love interests) and both even giving snarky comments on Bugs while investigating. When they encounter Tina earlier in the episode, Lola does a weird, unnecessary claim that people tends to become attached through emotional events like investigating but assuring that there's nothing between her and Daffy. Tina responds with a casual "I'm not worried."
- In "Double Date", Lola has a temporary crush on Daffy and becomes stalker-ish and jealous at Tina. Up until the end, anyway.
- Shout-Out: Bugs uses this trope to get Daffy's attention by telling Superman's origin, except with Bugs Bunny replacing Superman. It backfires, big time.
- Show Within a Show: "Off Duty Cop" and "Tit for Tat".
- Sitcom Character Archetypes:
- Bugs: Square, Wisecracker and Sage
- Daffy: Stick, Goofball and Bully
- Porky: Square and Goofball
- Slapstick Knows No Gender: Lola, in stark contrast with her Space Jam counterpart.
- Slice of Life
- Sigil Spam: Paint splatters are always used to color and add shading to background objects, like walls, clouds, furniture, even the grass.
- Significant Reference Date: See Mythology Gag.
- Silence, You Fool!: Daffy to Bugs in "Jailbird and Jailbunny" when attempting to break the chain between Bugs and him.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: "To Bowl Or Not To Bowl" has Terry Delgado, Daffy's arch-nemesis... in bowling.
- Sleep Cute: Bugs and Daffy.◊
- The Sociopath: Daffy. Bugs even diagnoses him as such.
- So Okay, It's Average: Porky in "Monster Talent", Speedy's in the midst of making a commercial, while Porky does succeed in working in the production, Bugs ultimately ends up in the final edit as his personality just flows better in the ad.
Speedy: This guy's [Porky] okay but I wanna party with this guy! [Bugs]
- Soundtrack Dissonance: The Merrie Melodies musical segments are usually upbeat and fun (in most cases), but the intro theme to these segments is a very strange, off-key and dissonant version of "Merrily We Roll Along", sharply contrasting the musical segments themselves in most cases.
- Soylent Green Is People: Porky loves pepperoni. Until he discovers what it's really made of.
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Might just as easily be called "The Daffy Duck Show".
- Stalker with a Crush: Lola veers into this territory — or rather, she may briefly veer out of it.
- The Merrie Melody song, "We Are In Love," is basically "Stalker with a Crush: The Song". Among other tendencies of this trope, Lola stands outside Bugs' house in the rain while sporting a Slasher Smile.
- She even went crazy for Daffy of all people, and after he read to her from a list of pickup lines that SHE WROTE for him in order to teach him how to date. She gets upset after Daffy lets her know she's dating Tina and in response breaks into his bedroom and confronts him in an attempt to dissuade him. And also leaves the ladder at his window "just for later".
- Stalker Without a Crush: Daffy became this towards Bugs... in the first episode, because their friendship hit a rough patch.
- Stealth Pun: In "Bugs and Daffy Get a Job", Bugs gets a job working in Porky's office, but Daffy doesn't. The subplot involves Daffy getting his beak redone.
- Stock Footage: One scene of Bugs dancing reuses animation of him dancing from "Mississippi Hare".
- Stock Scream: In the episode "Eligible Bachelors", Granny has a flahback of WW2 in which a Nazi general pushes a subordinate out of a blimp, who subsequently lets out what seems to be a Wilhelm scream.
- The Straight Man: Bugs looks to be taking this role.
- Strange Minds Think Alike: A lot of Brick Jokes come out of Daffy or Lola making some sort of comment, then the other later making a similar comment.
- Straw Loser: Daffy pretty much exists to make Bugs (and everybody else) look better.
- That being said, he's a talented cosmetologist. The trope is played straight in his license acceptance speech, where he admits he has been placed in the world to make other people look better.
- The reason Daffy hangs out with Porky Pig, Pete Puma and Marvin the Martian is that they're lame enough to consider him the cool one. Of course, he does everything in his power to keep Bugs from joining their bowling team.
- Streaking: Daffy and Porky go streaking while on Spring Break in Mexico during "The Black Widow". After first attracting no attention at all, they point out to the locals that they are naked, and promptly get arrested.
- Supporting Protagonist: Bugs, who usually steps into the events of an episode as opposed to starting them.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial
Bugs: Did you sleep well?
Daffy: Are you implying that I wet the bed?
- Table Space: Happens in "The Shelf" when Daffy is having dinner with Tina. The kicker is that it isn't even Daffy's house; it's Porky's and he is forcing Porky to act as his butler. It ends with Daffy flinging bread rolls at Porky and Tina storming out.
- Take That: First jab at Disney: In Daffy's Merrie Melody, "The Wizard," one of the frozen beasts that Daffy roasts resembles Pumbaa from The Lion King.
- This dialogue in "Duck Esquire":
Daffy: I hope so.
Lola: Well, at some point you gotta ask for his daughter's hand in marriage.
Daffy: People still do that?
- This line in "Gribbler's Quest":
Bugs: (seeing Daffy playing a handheld game) Video games? What are you, nine years old?
- During Yosemite Sam's musical number "Stick to My Guns", which is about all of the various incredibly stupid things he does and has done, one stanza is him talking about how he's a big fan of the band Matchbox 20 and obediently buys every album they release. For comparison, other stupid things he mentions in the song include building his dream home on wet sand, starting a vendetta with the Mafia, asking a cannibal to a dinner date, skating on thin ice, riding a 10-speed bike on the Interstate and heating his house with a microwave.
- Talkative Loon: Both Daffy and Lola. After delivering a particularly outlandish monologue in "Working Duck", Daffy had to ask Bugs what the heck he was talking about. (Bugs, of course, had no idea.)
- Tantrum Throwing: When Daffy makes Porky his servant in "The Shelf", he gets angry and whiny at Porky about hard butter and store-bought rolls. He throws them at Porky, causing him pain and yelling at him some more. However, Tina (whom he had invited over), throws one of those items back at Daffy.
- Team Pet: Taz has been regulated to this role with Bugs as the owner, and by the end of "Devil Dog" may actually become a recurring pet.
- Temporary Bulk Change: Bugs in "Bobcats on Three".
- Tempting Fate: In "The Black Widow".
Bugs: "Daffy? Oh, wait, he's gone. He's gone all week! That's seven glorious days without a crazy person in my life."
- The Teaser: Played with. Most of the shows start with what looks like a throw-away gag Cold Open, but more often than not, it's intrinsically linked to the plot of the episode.
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Lola's "hairdo" and skirt.
- With her ears made up into a hairdo, where were the earrings she wore in "the Black Widow" attached?
- Thick-Line Animation: The stylized look in the above picture had many fans somewhat nervous. Turns out the picture doesn't really do the animation justice though.
- The Thing That Would Not Leave: Daffy has been living with Bugs for five years.
- Yosemite Sam was this in "Fish and Visitors."
- This Is My Boomstick: In "Peel of Fortune", Daffy attempts to impress a group of cavemen with the miracle of toilet paper. It doesn't work. (Throwing the roll at their heads probably didn't help.)
- Those Wacky Nazis: Appears in Granny's WWII flashback. However, they're played far less sterotypically than one might expect. Granny also never refers to them as Nazis, just Germans, plus the closest to Nazi symbolism shown is an Iron Cross.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tina and Lola.
- Tongue on the Flagpole: In "A Christmas Carol", Daffy gets his butt frozen to a park bench during the song "Christmas Rules".
- Too Dumb to Live: Pete Puma.
"Hey! Mister! You forgot your lock!"
- In Merrie Melodies, "Stick to My Guns", Yosemite Sam sings about all the dumb decisisons he makes throughout his life. Like wearing ankle weights during the "Running of the Bulls", declaring a vendetta on the Mafia, and paying for one rhinestone.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Bugs Bunny in "Rebel Without a Glove," who became Thugs Bunny after acquiring a new set of gloves.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin the Martian (even though he's still plotting to destroy the Earth), Witch Lezah, Gossamer, and Pete Puma (who was originally an antagonist of Bugs).
- Toothy Bird: In "Bugs and Daffy Get a Job", Daffy gets an X-ray at the doctor's office of his head, which shows the top and bottom of his bill filled with teeth.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Bugs and carrots; Henry and chicken.
- Trailers Always Lie: The teaser for "Off Duty Cop" made it look like when the FBI agent said, "It's pathetic, but it's not illegal" he was referring to Daffy. He was actually talking to Porky about pretending to be a chauffeur. Turns out what Daffy was doing actually was illegal.
- Under the Truck: Much to his own amazement, Wile E. Coyote pulls this trick off in the short "Vicious Cycles". Of course, he is flattened immediately afterwards by a truck going in the opposite direction.
- The Unfavourite: Sylvester (according to "Point, Laser Point").
- The Unintelligible: Lola Bunny at times when she is talking really fast.
- The Unreveal: Tweety's age and gender.
Sylvester: Huh, I was wrong.
- We also never find out what Daffy had in the bag in "Father Figures".
- Unsettling Gender Reveal: Bugs inadvertently does this to Speedy in "Beauty School".
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Sylvester and Tweety chasing each other, fighting, wrecking furniture, appliances, wallpaper, and windows around the kitchen, living room, dining room, and entry way? Granny and others couldn't care less.
- Unwanted Rescue: In "Itsy Bitsy Gopher", Bugs dashes into a house full of poison gas to rescue what he thinks is Gossamer's pet spider. However, it turns out not to be Gossamer's pet, but instead a deadly African sand spider which bites him in the hand.
- Viewer Gender Confusion: Played with in-universe. In The Stinger for one episode, Sylvester asks if Tweety is a boy or a girl and Tweety whispers something into his ear. Sylvester responds "Huh, I was wrong".
- Villain Protagonist: Daffy, at times.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: As quoted from Bugs, "Daffy, you're a mean-spirited, self-absorbed, disturbed little weirdo, but for whatever reason you're my best friend."
- Porky and Daffy too, though the vitriol mostly comes from Daffy—Porky is simply desperate for a friend. Daffy actually calls both Bugs and Porky his best friend at different times, usually when he needs to flatter one of them, and at one point lampshades the fact that he's not too clear on which of them really is his best friend.
- We Want Our Jerk Back: In episode 1, Daffy vows to become Bug's best friend ever and becomes... stalker-ish.
- What the Hell, Hero?: In "SuperRabbit", Jor-El calls out Superrabbit for this; pointing out that most of his current problems he has brought on himself because of his arrogance.
- Whole Plot Reference: "SuperRabbit" is a Whole Plot Reference to Superman II.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: In "SuperRabbit", Foara asks Zod why they have to make Kal-El kneel before them. Why not just dispose of him and take over the Earth?
- Window Love: Bugs and Taz at the end of "Devil Dog". While Taz is on an airplane wing, no less.
- Won't Take "Yes" for an Answer: Daffy, several times.
- Working on the Chain Gang: Daffy and Bugs in "Jaibird and Jailbunny".
- Work Off the Debt: At the end of "Members Only", Daffy is working as a washroom attendant at the country club to pay off the debt he had run up on Walter's membership.
- Wrong Insult Offence: In "That's My Baby'', Bugs calls Daffy 'a bummer' after he refuses to go to lunch with him and Porky. Daffy's response is "No. Porky's the bummer. I'm a jerk."
- Wrong Turn at Albuquerque: A variant was used in "Casa de Calma" when Bugs realizes the directions he used got he and Daffy lost: "Never buy a GPS from a vending machine!"
- Yandere: The previews hint that Lola Bunny may become a mild version. She also becomes one to Daffy for one episode.
- Daffy was a mild male variant towards Bugs in the first episode.
- Yank the Dog's Chain: "To Bowl or Not to Bowl" reveals that Daffy is a terrible bowler (even though we could've taken that as a given), and when Bugs gives him a chance to win so he'll look good to the rest of the team, he... doesn't.
- You Are Grounded: In "Rebel Without a Glove" Lola's father grounds her to her room for wanting to date a bad boy.
Walter: Go to your room!
Lola: I don't even live here anymore.
Walter: (beat) Well, go to your old room that your mother turned into a scrapbooking room!
- Your Door Was Open: Fairly frequent.
- Your Other Left: When Daffy is training on a flight simulator in "Spread Those Wings and Fly", his instructor tells him to bear left by five degrees. When Daffy asks which way is west, the instructor says "your left", followed immediately by a panicked "Your other left!". Needless to say, Daffy crashes.
- Zorro Mark: Speedy leaves 'S's behind after his cheese thefts in "Queso Bandito".
