    Bugs Bunny 
Voiced by: Jeff Bergman

Bugs Bunny lives a life of upper-middle-class suburban leisure, based off residual income from a popular Carrot Peeler that he invented. He lives in a well-appointed house, drives a compact car, and provides room and board for his friend, Daffy Duck.

  • The Ace: In earlier episodes, he was quite true to his roots, where he even won the Nobel Prize. Later episodes have made his flaws more explicit.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Unlike most of his incarnations, he is not a Karmic Trickster, with the exception of Casa de Calma and Customer Service.
  • Always Someone Better: To Daffy, but it's downplayed compared to the original shorts. Daffy's jealousy of him only comes up a few times, like in the bowling episode where he's upset about everyone liking Bugs more than him.
  • Ambiguously Jewish: Less so than in other adaptations, but the accent's still there.
  • Brutal Honesty: At times:
    Daffy: (after watches a basketball game) That's it! I figured it out! I finally know what I'm going to do with my life: be a professional basketball player!
    Bugs: You're three and a half feet tall.
    Daffy: (groans) You know, you're a real dream killer. I hope you don't ever have children.
  • Butt-Monkey: Occasionally a victim of this due to being the Only Sane Man.
  • Catch Phrase: Do we really need to say it?
  • Character Exaggeration: Inverted. His Karmic Trickster shtick is extremely played down, leaving him as the snarky Straight Man.
  • Chick Magnet: Lola is crazy about him, he manages to win over a famous actress in "Casa de Calma", and we see two women fighting over him in "Eligible Bachelors".
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: When the series begins, this is his dynamic for Daffy. He manages to pass that duty off to Tina, only to end up as Lola's minder.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially towards Daffy.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Phlegmatic/Leukine.
  • Friend to All Children: Has shades of this that is mostly seen with his relationship with Gossamer.
  • Green-Eyed Epiphany: Had this when Lola temporarily had a crush on Daffy. He tries to get her attention, call her pretty and wind up insisting that he is her boyfriend. Which prompts her to snap out of it and tell him to repeat that. He refuses, but it's okay, she got the whole thing on tape.
  • Grumpy Bear: Quite unlike his classic incarnation; this Bugs treats his Only Sane Man tendencies more as a burden than a blessing. He's frequently annoyed at the world in general, and Daffy in particular, and is frequently a bit of a killjoy.
  • The Hero: Even moreso in this adaptation.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Daffy.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Downplayed since it doesn't happen often, but whenever he interacts with Witch Lezah, he tends to bring up witch stereotypes that she immediately shoots down, reminiscent of someone asking slightly racist questions out of ignorance rather than malice. Like when she asked him to babysit Gossamer:
    Bugs: Where are you going?
    Lezah: To the fifth dimension.
    Bugs: Ooh, is that where you're from?
    Lezah: What!? Honey, I'm from Chicago! (...) I was wondering if you could babysit at MY house.
    Bugs: I've never stayed at a haunted house before.
    Lezah: You make a LOT of assumptions.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Lola. When she mistakenly believes that he broke up with her in "Dear John", she is so distraught that she decides to leave to a Buddhist monastery.
  • Mythology Gag: His birthday is July 27. That day in 1940 A Wild Hare was released.
  • Nice Guy: He's snarky, but Bugs is one of the easiest characters to get along with.
  • Not So Above It All:
    • He's not without his foibles. He can be just as obsessive as Daffy, and unwilling to admit when he's wrong or has made a mistake.
    • He's surprisingly not good with do-it-yourself carpentry, considering all the failure coming from trying to build a shelf.
    • He seems to be only person in the entire world who did not know on first sight that Poochie is not a dog.
    • A recurring theme in the earlier episodes is that Bugs has led such a charmed life that he finds a lot of stuff ordinary people dread to be fascinating. This includes high school reunions, office jobs, and even prison. Needless to say, the people with him in those environments do not share his enthusiasm.
  • Odd Friendship: As revealed in the first episode, he himself doesn't quite understand how he tolerates Daffy, but the two are best friends.
  • Official Couple: With Lola Bunny as of "Double Date".
  • Only Sane Man: Easily the sanest person on the show, and even he has his irrational moments.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Daffy's Red.
  • Sanity Slippage: His caffeine addiction makes him extremely energetic and jittery. When he tries to kick his caffeine addiction, he just winds up hooked on Spargle, which turns him into a paranoid junkie.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The Savvy Guy to Lola's Energetic Girl.
  • Science Hero: He hardly ever uses that skill set, but it's there.
  • She's Not My Girlfriend: He went through a stage like this with Lola. Eventually she tricked him into a relationship.
  • Sitcom Character Archetypes: Square, Wisecracker and Sage.

    Daffy Duck 
Voiced by: Jeff Bergman

Daffy Duck is the roommate of Bugs Bunny. Unlike Bugs and their neighbors, Daffy has no way of earning money and relies on Bugs for food and shelter. While Daffy's greed and jealousy of Bugs remains, it appears less antagonistic in the show.

  • Achievements in Ignorance: He willingly signed up for the Marines and made it completely through training despite completely misunderstanding what the Marines actually were.
  • Acrophobic Bird: Despite being a bird that, for all intents and purposes, should be able to fly, he never does so, except once when he went paragliding. On a side note, he can't swim either.
    • This is lampshaded in the episode "We're in Big Truffle". At one point, Porky and Daffy are chased up a tree by a bear, and Porky requests that Daffy fly them to safety. Daffy says that he can't fly, to which Porky points out that he's a duck, only for Daffy to say that he's not that kind of duck. Then Porky finds out that Daffy can't SWIM, and we get this...
    Porky: Y-Y-Y-You can't FLY, you c-c-c-can't SWIM... ARE YOU EVEN A D-D-D-DUCK AT ALL?!
    Daffy: I'm not sure. (points at beak) This comes off very easily. (takes off beak to prove his point)
  • Adaptation Personality Change: While he is for the most part the same, he is a good deal more effeminate and less smart than his counterpart from the original cartoons.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: In the original shorts - at least, in his most iconic personalities - he was fairly intelligent and clever, but occasionally gullible and was often defeated due to his greed, anger sides, and selfishness. His lazy and idiot sides show a lot more here.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Either this or he has a whole plethora of real disorders: PTSD, autism, schizophrenia, narcissism and crushingly low self-esteem (somehow), and occasional outright delusions.
    Bugs: You're a narcissist, you're a sociopath, you're probably a psychopath...
  • Anti-Hero: Usually. Sometimes crosses the line into Villain Protagonist.
  • Character Development: In Season 2, while still kind of an arrogant jerkass, he has more redeeming qualities than the first season.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Has bizarre fantasies, opinions and random whims.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Most of his self-absorbed antics are Played for Laughs.
  • Consummate Liar: As revealed in "Reunion" he's 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.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: Crossdresses and has female mannerisms very frequently. Even if he is usually not in a villainous role, he is still meant to be "sissy".
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Though he is a lying, idiotic coward, Daffy is in fact a former U.S Marine and was sent in on a mission to rescue American prisoners of war from a foreign camp, and when he attempted to apply for a job at an internet service provider, he was told he was overqualified, due to having been a former CEO.
  • The Ditz: Not as much as Lola but he has his moments.
  • Drives Like Crazy: As shown in "DMV".
  • Feathered Fiend: A duck who is almost sociopathic.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Choleric/Melancholic.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Few of Daffy's friends can stand being around him. However Tina, Foghorn, Gossamer and (sometimes) Granny genuinely like him. He also gets along with Lola, though this is not that surprising.
  • Freudian Excuse: His childhood....wasn't the best growing up. From what little snippets he actually remembers about it, it's fairly clear why he so mentally and emotionally unwell.
  • Furry Reminder: In the first episode, he eats a raw fish and swallows it whole like a real-life duck would.
  • Genius Ditz: He's a talented cosmetologist.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Bugs Bunny.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • He’s a former U.S. Marine who went on several missions to rescue prisoners of war from foreign countries, and he was damn good at it.
    • A few of the later episodes, most notably Best Friends Redux, show he does genuinely value Porky's friendship, and he is willing to help him out for purely altruistic reasons on occasion.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: He claims his parents filled the house with so much arguing that "no one could stand to live there", and doesn't remember anything before age fifteen, possibly having blocked it out.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Frequent.
  • Idiot Hero: The "hero" part is debatable, the "idiot" part is not.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: He becomes this in this show; then again, he isn't really sure what "gender" is anyway.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Tina accurately guessed that he's an "insecure little weirdo who lies about everything and probably cries himself to sleep". Daffy wasn't offended, in fact; he was impressed that she could see through him so easily.
    Daffy: Wow. You're good.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Probably the incarnation of this character that best deserves his name, Daffy.
  • Insecure Love Interest: He thinks Tina is insane for willingly being his girlfriend.
  • Insufferable Imbecile: Because of Adaptational Dumbass, he is an idiot in this show, while also keeping his selfish Small Name, Big Ego.
  • It's All About Me: His selfishness is usually played for laughs.
  • Jerkass: To nearly sociopathic levels, especially in the first season.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He became this in season two, where the "heart of gold" part increased while the "jerk" part decreased. See Took a Level in Kindness below.
  • Jerk With A Heart Of Jerk: In the episode "The Float". Not only did he lie to Porky about something like a kidney transplant by giving him $375,000 dollars, but he blows it all on a yacht, gets two jacuzzi's instead of something important like a sail and a radio, not only does he throw Porky into the water after everything he has done to him, but after he really needs a kidney transplant and after Bugs pays for his expensive operation and Porky GIVES him his after everything he has done, Daffy never learns a darn thing!
  • Kick the Dog: His treatment of Porky in the second half of season 1 (especially "The Float"), was very badly received by a lot of viewers.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Firing Cecil in "Customer Service".
  • Lack of Empathy: Whenever he's paired with Porky, he doesn't seem to care how much crap he puts into the poor guy.
  • Large Ham: Probably the most hammiest character in the show.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He is rarely a Karma Houdini, and usually gets his comeuppance (it's especially apparent in "Casa de Calma").
  • Literal-Minded: In "Spread Those Wings and Fly", Daffy takes the title of a book (the title of the episode) as encouragement to take flying lessons, and Porky tries to correct him by saying that he takes the title too literally.
    Daffy: (to Porky) What are you talking about? He must have said the word "fly" about a hundred times in there. "Fly" means fly!
  • Lovable Rogue: He's a pretty divisive character because of Depending on the Writer. Some play him as a Heroic Comedic Sociopath, some as a deconstruction of that trope. He seems to have roughly equal (or at least, equally loud) groups of fans and detractors.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Feminine Boy to Tina's Masculine Girl.
  • Mr. Imagination: Although the line between "daydream" and "reality" is considerably blurred from his point of view (he really thinks he's a wizard, for instance).
  • Mythology Gag:
    • His birthday is April 17 (Porky's Duck Hunt was released on April 17, 1937).
    • His stint in the U.S. Marine Corps and his genuine competence at being a Marine harkens back to several WWII-era shorts, where he was depicted as a soldier able to singlehandedly thrash Nazis left and right through his sheer badassery.
  • Narcissist: According to Bugs. He does display many of the traits that mark narcissism in reality.
  • Never My Fault: He's quick to blame his mistakes on others.
  • Odd Friendship: With Bugs. They're practically opposites. Interestingly enough, his friendship with Lola doesn't seem quite as weird.
  • Official Couple: With Tina Russo as of "Double Date".
  • Out-of-Character Moment: His behaviour in "Father Figures" is really tame compared to the rest of the series.
  • Pet the Dog: Sometimes in the first season ("Devil Dog", "Eligible Bachelors", "That's My Baby"), more frequently in the second season.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: A self-absorbed, idiotic, and borderline psychotic adult.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Bugs' Blue.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sort of Manly Man to Porky's Sensitive Guy.
  • Self-Deprecation: Daffy willingly admits he's a terrible person several times.
  • Serious Business: Jobs, relationships, personal hygiene and safety are for losers! Parade floats and bowling, now, those are Serious Business.
  • Sitcom Character Archetypes: Stick, Goofball and Bully.
  • The Sociopath: According to Bugs anyways. While he checks some of the boxes of genuine sociopathic disorder (lack of empathy, impatience, blame-shifting and irresponsibility among others), he doesn't check all of them. For instance, shame and self-loathing are not generally associated with sociopathy.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: He gets the most screen time in the show.
  • Straw Loser: He pretty much exists to make Bugs (and everybody else) look better. The trope is lampshaded in his license acceptance speech, where he admits he has been placed in the world to make other people look better.
  • Strawman Political: Especially in the first season, Daffy could have worked for Fox News.
  • Talkative Loon: To the point of Daffy asking Bugs what the heck he was talking about after delivering a particularly outlandish monologue in "Working Duck". (Bugs, of course, had no idea.)
  • Token Evil Teammate: Though the "evil" part is usually just shameless selfishness.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In the first half of season one, he has Pet the Dog moments and you can feel sorry for him at times. In the second half he becomes a borderline sociopath.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Starting in season two. While he still does have his occasional Jerkass moments throughout the season, Daffy slightly became a much nicer person than he was in season one.
    • In the second season premiere, he realized that winning isn't everything after becoming a coach to Gossamer and his friends and was happy that his kids were having fun.
    • In "Here Comes the Pig", he was even willing to help Porky win back his third grade girlfriend after all these years, before she gets married.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: Implied. He doesn't remember anything of his early childhood before he was 15, and what we do know of his childhood paints a pretty grim picture, so it's probably a good thing he doesn't remember.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: He deserves a lot of the stuff that happens to him because of his jerkish behavior.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: When attending Daffy's high school reunion, Bugs discovers that Daffy was a friendly, if awkward and nerdy, teenager who was bullied and humiliated by Jerk Jock Porky Pig. Porky Took a Level in Kindness after graduation, while Daffy took all of the levels in jerkass. Daffy's long list of issues are implied to be a result of all the mistreatment he endured as a kid.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Bugs.

    Porky Pig 
Voiced by: Bob Bergen

Porky Pig is one of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck's friends. Despite being extremely bright and bookish, Porky has an innocent, naive quality that Daffy frequently uses to his advantage, tricking Porky into parting with large sums of money or accompanying him in bizarre schemes.

  • Adaptational Wimp: Wasn't that much of a doormat in the original shorts, where he actually fights back at Daffy much more often. In this show, he lets everyone walk all over him.
  • Ambiguously Bi: In "Double Date," he is excited when Daffy invites him on a date and even waits for Daffy with a bouquet of flowers. Regardless, he ends up attracting many women and ends up dating Petunia.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's usually an Extreme Doormat to everybody (Daffy's just the one who exploits it most). But in the notorious The Float, after Daffy tricks Porky into giving him all of his money by claiming that he needs a kidney transplant - and then uses the money to buy a yacht - an enraged Porky beats the ever-living crap out of him upon finding out that he was tricked.
  • Butt-Monkey: Whenever somebody has to lose big, it turns out to be Porky.
  • Chick Magnet: This is the rare case where the Butt-Monkey is one. He has attracted more girls than Bugs and Daffy combined, shown in "High School Reunion" and a few Merrie Melodies. After Petunia Pig makes her appearance, this trope is downplayed.
  • Composite Character: While he stutters and doesn't wear pants like Porky, his shy, naive pushover personality is closer to Hamton J. Pig from Tiny Toon Adventures (another Looney Tunes adaptation of the 90s).
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Porky is constantly abused throughout the series, and shown to have crippling loneliness. Only after Petunia made her overdue debut did things turn around for him.
  • Extreme Doormat: To Daffy, who does not give him a shred of dignity or respect.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Melancholic/Phlegmatic.
  • Future Loser: He was the most popular student in high school, but peaked too early.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: He wears a jacket and tie, but no pants. Lampshaded in "We're in Big Truffle" when Daffy asks him what he plans on doing with his half of the money that they're going to recieve from selling the truffle:
    Porky: I g-g-g-guess I could buy a shirt. I mean, I n-n-n-never felt like I n-n-n-needed a shirt, considering I already had a j-j-j-jacket and tie... It seems so extravagant.
    Daffy: THAT'S why you don't wear a shirt? Because you're CHEAP?!
    Porky: Well, w-w-w-why don't YOU wear clothes?
    Daffy: Because I love my body.
  • Hidden Depths: He actually has all sorts of skills and beneficiaries as Daffy discovers. It's just Daffy usually cares too little about him to find out anything.
  • I Ate WHAT?!: Loves to eat ham...and unlike most examples, the many Lampshades cause him to look into it, leading to a sort of self-loathing you'd see from a drug addict.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: His main motivation.
  • Impoverished Patrician: Subverted. His family seemingly used to be very wealthy, but Porky now lives extremely modestly and doesn't have much money.
  • Jerk Jock: Hard to believe, but he was this in high school. He grew out of it. May or may not be the reason this universe turned him into its Butt-Monkey.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He used to bully Daffy viciously when they were teenagers. So how Daffy treats him as an adult is somewhat deserved.
  • Neat Freak: His reorganization of Bugs's house in "Gossamer is Awesomer" drives Bugs round the bend.
  • Nice Guy: Along with Bugs, Porky is one of the nicest characters in the series.
  • No Respect Guy: If he appears in an episode at all, it's so that more lack-of-respect can be loaded on him.
  • Official Couple: With Petunia Pig as of "Mr. Wiener".
  • Only Sane Man: Along with Bugs. Even though he is an Extreme Doormat, he's one of the more rational characters.
  • The Pollyanna: He tries hard to keep looking on the bright side.
  • Porky Pig Pronunciation: Of course, except he doesn't compensate by changing words like the original shorts or other shows.
  • Rant-Inducing Slight: Happens to him several times.
  • Reformed Bully: It's revealed that he was a bully to Daffy Duck back in high school, which may explain why Daffy treats him badly. Now he's the nicest character on the show and apparently apologized to Daffy a thousand times for what he did in the past.
  • Sanity Slippage: To varying degrees, especially in "Bugs & Daffy Get a Job".
  • Sitcom Character Archetypes: Square, Dork and Goofball.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Sensitive Guy to Daffy's Manly Man.
  • Speech Impediment: He always stutters when he talks.
  • Super OCD: In one episode, Porky has to stay with Bugs for a while, and while he's helpful at first, he starts reorganizing his entire kitchen to the point of alphabetizing his goods and moving plates and silverware around. He even makes sure all the identical soup cans face label outward when Bugs puts one back irregularly.
  • Straw Loser: Not as much as Daffy, but it's very clear that he will never accomplish anything. There's an exception Played for Laughs in one of the Merrie Melodies shorts, but in the main continuity he just can't win.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: He tends to look up the positive side, even if there's a bad situation.

    Speedy Gonzales 
Voiced by: Fred Armisen (speaking), Damon Jones (Season 1, Episode 7 and singing)

Speedy Gonzales is an extremely fast mouse who lives with Bugs and Daffy as their "mouse in the wall" and runs a pizza parlor called Pizzarriba.

  • The Ace: More so than Bugs, as unlike him he is still very unflawed.
  • Badass Adorable: "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.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Wears no shoes.
  • Brutal Honesty: To the point he can be a bit rude.
    Daffy: Hey, Speedy, Porky's finally got a girlfriend.
    Speedy: Ooh! Good for you, Pinky. I thought you were going to be one those always lives alone guys, who just gets more and more desperate until he alienates the few friends that he has and then he's just alone. So what a relief for you. Now when can we meet this new girlfriend?
    Porky: (Stammering) I don't have a girlfriend.
    Speedy: Well, stay in the game, Pinky. But maybe you should think about growing a beard. You got so much face.
  • The Conscience: He is occasionally shown to act as Daffy's conscience.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Sanguine.
  • Funny Foreigner: Sometimes speaks in Gratuitous Spanish.
  • Invincible Hero: He is right about everything, owns a cool car, teaches flamenco dancing, gets the girls, saves a restaurant started by Bugs and Daffy that eventually is given to him, and trains Taz to obey him in seconds!
  • Light Is Good: Lampshaded in Itsy Bitsy Gopher, where Lola and Daffy think his suit symbolizes his "purity".
  • Morality Chain: He is the one who calls Daffy out for his poor treatment of Bugs and convinces him to be a better friend.
  • Nice Hat: He wears an oversized yellow hat of Mexican charro.
  • Super Speed: It's severely toned down in this series, but he can still move at incredibly fast speeds.
  • Token Minority: He's a Mexican mouse.
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice is significantly lower than Mel Blanc's version.

    Lola Bunny 
Voiced by: Kristen Wiig; Sarah Berge (Norwegian dub),Ilona Brokowski (German dub), Afrodita Androne (Romanian dub)

Lola is Bugs' scatter-brained, bubbly, obsessive girlfriend, who has a habit of speaking rapidly, whether anyone else is listening or not.

  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: As with most of the cast.
  • Brainless Beauty: While not seductive like she is in Space Jam, she's still a pretty lady... and a total airhead.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Daffy's better at it, but only because Lola can't pay attention to any one thing long enough to build a delusion around it.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Fights off a squad of undead skeletons and a giant robot so she can find an anniversary present for Bugs.
  • Cute and Psycho: Has shades of this in early episodes, but later grows out of her stalker/yandere tendencies and is portrayed more as a harmless Cloudcuckoolander.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: There's a lot of pratfalling and slapstick when she's around.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Despite being Bugs' girlfriend, she is similar to Daffy, without the Jerkass traits.
  • The Ditherer: She's unable to settle on a decision, even for something as simple as what she wants to drink. Or if she likes or not a movie ("Oh! Oh! This is the best part. Oh, no. Wait. This is the worst part. Oh, I hate this part.")
  • The Ditz: Lola can out-ditz anyone on the show.
    Lola: Are you really a duck? I always thought you were a crow. Aren't ducks the ones with those big beaver teeth and that big beaver tail?
    Daffy: Those are beavers.
    Daffy: Uh... Forget it.
    • Later, in the same episode:
    Lola: Porky's a pig? I always thought he was a seal.
  • Drives Like Crazy: As shown in "DMV".
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Lola convincing Daffy in "Daffy Duck Esquire" that he can't avoid Tina's dad forever if he ever wants to marry her. It's actually one of the rare moments in the series where she doesn't say anything loony at all.
  • Dumb Blonde: Heavily implied, given her golden-ish fur.
  • Ears as Hair: Lampshaded in "Members Only".
    Bugs: I like your hair.
    Lola: Thanks! ...They're my ears.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Sanguine/Choleric.
  • Furry Female Mane: Has a tuft of blonde hair on the top of her head.
  • Genius Ditz: In "We're In Big Truffle", she makes a passing remark that she babysat as a way to pay for medical school.
  • Genki Girl: She's an energetic Cloudcuckoolander with a Motor Mouth.
  • Girliness Upgrade: Not that she didn't have any girliness in her first appearence, but here, she is a rich air-headed Valley Girl instead of a Passionate Sports Girl.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Lola appears to have golden-ish fur with blonde bangs on the top of her head, but she is very sweet and kindhearted (although she can be a Dumb Blonde).
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Becomes this with Tina.
  • Hidden Depths: Apparently, Lola is in medical school.
  • Hypocritical Humor: The entire segment in "Double Date" where Lola attempts to talk Daffy out of dating Tina.
    Lola: Not every girl's as stable as me. (flattens a soda can against her forehead with a creepy look on her face)
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Lola is a very sweet person and usually means well, although she can be quite dense.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Bugs. When he mistakenly believes that she broke up with him in "Dear John", he is so distraught that he decides to travel the world via boating, stating, "There's nothing here for me anymore".
  • Loon with a Heart of Gold: She may be a Talkative Loon but her intentions are genuinely good.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Not that she wasn't already crazy...
  • Mad Love: At her worst. Hell, she even stars in a Merrie Melody called "We Are In Love" that's built off of this trope.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: In Looney Tunes: Rabbits Run, she is this to Bugs Bunny. At the beginning, Bugs has been a disappointed cynic since a high rise was built over his rabbit hole, and all he wants is to find another hole and live alone. Talkative Loon Lola shows him that there are better ways to live.
  • Mood-Swinger: She has the tendency to have little control over her emotions; one moment she's crying her eyes out and the next she's laughing her ass off. Just watch the movie scene in "Members Only".
  • Motor Mouth: She talks a mile-a-minute, and Bugs is easily annoyed by this.
  • Nice Girl: When she's not being a Yandere. If you can get over all her insanity, she is a very friendly and likable person.
  • Official Couple: With Bugs Bunny as of "Double Date".
  • Orange/Blue Contrast: Her fur is an orange-ish shade and, in season 2, she wears a blue dress.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The Energetic Girl to Bugs' Savvy Guy.
  • Sitcom Character Archetypes: Goofball and Bigmouth.
  • Stalker with a Crush: 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. However, this trope is now averted now that Lola and Bugs became an Official Couple starting in "Double Date".
  • Talkative Loon: Rather unhinged and talks a lot, though because she is an airhead she tends to lose track of what she is talking about or what she is doing, quick to change topics or switch her attention to something else.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Tina's Tomboy.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She certainly isn't a tomboy, but she wears a purple (light blue in the second season) rubber band on both ears like a high ponytail.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Best shown in "It's a Handbag".
  • Upperclass Twit: She's an empty-head, but apparently, she and her family are wealthy.
  • Yandere: At her worst. Just see "We Are In Love" if you really wanna know what we mean.

    Tina Russo 
Voiced by: Jennifer Esposito (Season 1), Annie Mumolo (Season 2)

A new character original to the show, Tina Russo is a female duck who is Daffy's girlfriend. She works at a copy store called "Copy Place". Tina is another straight character of the show, with a no-nonsense personality.

  • The Ace: Tina can do just about anything, except cut hair.
  • Biker Babe: Officially owns one after Bugs solds his to her in "Rebel Without A Glove".

  • Brutal Honesty: See practically anything she ever says to Daffy.
  • Canon Foreigner: A new character created for this show, replacing Daffy's former girlfriend Melissa Duck.
  • Daddy's Girl: She was shown to worry about her father's possible disapproval of Daffy, proving that while she doesn't care what others think about her she does care about her family's opinion.
  • Deadpan Snarker: The biggest one in the show after Bugs.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Bugs. The serious Straight Man to her Cloudcuckoolander love interest, much like Bugs is this to Lola.

  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Becomes this with Lola.
  • I Can Change My Beloved: Her reason for being with Daffy, since she "likes a project".
    Tina: "You're like an abandoned building that ought to be condemned. You know, with busted windows, rats running around, a real nasty sewage situation. But maybe if the right person got a hold of it and cleaned it up, maybe they could take that disgusting building and turn it into something not so disgusting."
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Masculine Girl to Daffy's Feminine Boy. Emphasized by this exchange:
    Tina: I'm not the beauty pageant type.
    Daffy: Oh, of course you are. You're constantly at the salon, you spend hours in front of the mirror, and you're always prancing around the house in a tiara.
    Tina: That's you.
  • Morality Pet: For Daffy. 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.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: She has brown hair which appears to be streaked or highlighted.
  • Odd Name Out: For some reason, she and her family are the only animal characters who avert Species Surname. Her surname is Russo, not Duck, and she mentions in one episode that her mother's maiden name is Romano.

  • Only Sane Woman: One of the most down-to-earth characters in the show, along with Bugs.
  • Straight Man: She's remarkably good at remaining calm in the face of Daffy's antics.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Lola's Girly Girl.
  • Rambunctious Italian: Averted, as she is very calm and doesn't really get mad and scream at people when triggered.

  • What Does She See in Him?: Even Daffy himself believes she's insane for loving him.
  • Women Are Wiser: In comparison to the idiotic Daffy Duck.

    Yosemite Sam 
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche

Yosemite Sam is one of Bugs and Daffy's neighbors. He is a liar, a thief, and a cheat, amongst other things. He tends to annoy Bugs and Daffy.

  • Adaptational Heroism: He's nicer than in the original shorts. Partially justified because he's no longer allowed to use his trademark pistols, so he can't intimidate and bully people as easily as before. He's still loud, rude and thoughtless, but when it occurs to him to be nice, he's pretty decent.
  • Fiery Redhead: He still has his temper, though he's not an Evil Redhead like in the original shorts.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He even has his own song about his temper.
  • Honor Before Reason: Yosemite Sam has a rather bizarre code of honor, always trying to return favors to people who help himnote . He even goes so far as to try to save Bugs' life when the latter saves him from a house fire, spending the entire episode tailing him and looking for danger to save him from, much to Bugs' annoyance.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's actually honestly kind and helpful once in a while.
    • In "You've Got Hate Mail", he didn't get angry at Daffy's hate email. He instead uses it as a opportunity to become a better person, and even thanks Daffy for it! Too bad it didn't last...
  • The Napoleon: One of the shortest characters of the cast and he still has his temper.
  • Nice Hat: In one episode he attempts to create a new image, but before long, he's back with the hat.

Voiced by: June Foray (elderly self), Stephanie Courtney (younger self)

An old lady who is one of Bugs Bunny's neighbors.

  • Action Girl: Fought in WWII and everything!
  • Beware the Nice Ones: A very sweet old lady. Still capable of laying Daffy out with one punch if sufficiently angered.
  • Cool Old Lady: She goes skydiving, visits the shooting range, and was a former spy who squared off with Nazis during the Liberation of Paris in 1944.
  • Fiery Redhead: Even though her red hair is gone, her spunkiness has never left her.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: She was quite beautiful when she fought in WWII at a younger age.
  • Nice Girl: Like all of her incarnations, Granny is a sweet lady.

    Witch Lezah
Voiced by: Roz Ryan

A witch who lives next door to Bugs Bunny and is often annoyed at the antics of Daffy Duck. Witch Lezah is also a hypnotherapist by trade.

Voiced by: Kwesi Boakye

A large red furry monster who is Witch Lezah's son.

  • The Cutie: Despite being a big red furry monster, he's also a shy and kindhearted little boy.
  • Gentle Giant: He may be a big monster, but actually quite sweet.
  • Morality Pet: For Daffy, surprisingly.
  • Nice Guy: One of the nicest characters.
  • Odd Friendship: With Daffy.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: According to Lezah, he called her a "witch". Pun aside, seeing his behaviour throughout the same episode, he wouldn't seem like the kind of person to insult his own mother.

    Tasmanian Devil
Voiced by: Jim Cummings

In this show, the Tasmanian Devil is portrayed as walking on four legs like a real Tasmanian Devil and his eyes are bloodshot red (later turned yellow when Bugs uses a taming trick that Speedy Gonzales taught him).


    Marvin the Martian
Voiced by: Eric Bauza (speaking), Damon Jones (singing)

A Martian who is one of Daffy Duck's friends.

  • Adaptational Heroism: Sort of. He's still plotting to destroy the Earth, but he never did anything really evil. He's actually one of Daffy's friends.
  • Affably Evil: Only in a merrie melodie. He'll shoot with you with laser beam only if you aren't being polite.
  • Aliens Speaking English: A Martian Speaking English.
  • Badass Adorable: According to most of the female demographic, at least. In the merry melody "Laser Beam", Marvin destroys a space octopus with his laser beam, and its remains splatters on him as he squeals cutely.
  • Berserk Button: This verse from his Merrie Melodies song, "I'm a Martian", says it best.
    But don't insult my helmet, 'cause then I'll hit the ceiling!
  • Demoted to Extra: In-series. In the first season, he was one of Daffy's friends and provided some to the plot of a few episodes. In the second season, he doesn't speak at all and is lucky if he even gets an appearance.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In this continuity.
    Marvin: Oh! High school was a horrible time for me! Therefore, I have spent every day since graduation plotting to destroy the Earth!

Voiced by: John Kassir (speaking), Damon Jones (singing)

A dimwitted puma who is one of Daffy Duck's friends and does various jobs around town.

  • Demoted to Extra: Like Marvin, in the second season where he mostly makes cameo appearances.
  • The Ditz: He's just as dumb as Daffy and Lola, or even more so.
  • Literal-Minded: In "Sunday Night Slice" when he tries to apply for the job:
    Pete: I'm here to apply for the job.

    Pete: Oh... right! (sits on the floor while still holding the chair)
  • Odd Friendship: With Marvin, since their high school days.
  • Those Two Guys: With Marvin, for some reason.
  • Too Dumb to Live: "Hey! Mister! You forgot your lock!"

    Foghorn Leghorn
Voiced by: Jeff Bergman (speaking), Damon Jones (singing)

Foghorn Leghorn is a rich rooster who has worked under various jobs. He and Daffy often get involved in various schemes.

  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Foghorn was more of an obnoxious Jerkass in the original shorts, but in this show he's well-meaning and optimistic.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Absentminded at times.
  • Eccentric Mentor: He's kind of crazy, but sometimes does give good advice.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: He had a rough start with Daffy in "The Foghorn Leghorn Story", but they make up at the end of the episode and remain good friends for the rest of the show.

  • The Pollyanna: Foghorn refuses to see the negative in any situation, no matter how obvious it might be.

Voiced by: Jeff Bergman (both)

Granny's Tuxedo cat and Yellow canary who are always at odds with each other.

Voiced by: Rob Paulsen and Jess Harnell, respectively

Two goofy gophers who run an antique store.

  • Nice Guys: Played to hilarious extents.
  • Overly Polite Pals: They even have a song about it!
  • Those Two Guys: They're always seen together no matter what.

    Elmer Fudd
Voiced by: Billy West

Elmer Fudd is the resident newsman.

  • Demoted to Extra: In this adaptation, Elmer mostly serves as the local news reporter. With the exception of a brief interaction with Daffy in "Year of the Duck", he never interacts with the main cast.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: Of course! And yet, somehow, he got a job as a TV news reporter. In-universe What The Hell, Casting Agency?!
  • Flat Character: In this adaptation, mind you. He doesn't have any definable characteristics beyond being a news reporter with an addiction to grilled cheese.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Gwiw- err, grilled cheese.

    Patricia and Walter Bunny
Patricia voiced by: Grey DeLisle (Season 1), Wendi Mc Lendon-Covey (Season 2)
Walter voiced by: John O'Hurley

Lola's parents.

  • Big Beautiful Woman: Patricia. Well, she is not tall but is a very pleasant plump woman.
  • The Ditz: Walter. Obviously Lola has inherited the intelligence from him.
  • Overprotective Dad: Normally subverted with Walter. But an episode has him hating Bugs because he wasn't himself at the time.
  • Parental Substitute: In the episode "Father Figures", Walter was Bugs' father figure so that they could bond more as "father & son".
  • Shipper on Deck: Both approve of Bugs being Lola's boyfriend. Especially Walter that also sings a song about how Bugs is great and hopes that he become his son-in-law.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Patricia looks a lot like Lola, just a bit heavier set.

    Petunia Pig
Voiced by: Katy Mixon

A female pig that Porky develops a relationship with.

  • Advertised Extra: Appeared prominently in early promotional material and merchandising, with at least two different designs. Grey DeLisle was also originally cast in the role. For some unknown reason, though, her debut was put off until what was essentially the series' eleventh hour, appearing late in Season 2 and speaking in the next episode, which was the third-to-last episode. Exactly why this happened is unknown, though there was clearly some sort of behind-the-scenes politics at play, possibly the executives wanting Porky to earn his happy ending by suffering greatly.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Black pigtails, like in the original shorts.
  • Love Interest: To Porky, starting in "Here Comes The Pig".
  • Nice Girl: She was willing to date Porky, even if he's a Straw Loser.
  • Official Couple: With Porky Pig as of "Mr. Wiener".
  • Satellite Love Interest: Unlike Lola and Tina, there is not much depth to her character but being Porky's girlfriend. Though to be fair, she only appeared in two episodes, so it's justified.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Merchandise released during season 1 featured her early, unused designs.

    Cecil Turtle
Voiced by: Jim Rash

A turtle who formerly worked as a customer service representative at the Trans-Visitron cable company. He later becomes a scammer and an enemy of Bugs Bunny.

  • Adaptational Jerkass: In the original shorts, he only antagonized Bugs when Bugs was the one being a Jerkass, and existed to knock him down a peg. In this adaptation, he is given an extremely jerkass personality reminiscent of the various antagonists that justifiably deserve Bugs' Karmic Trickster antics.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: The original shorts had Cecil being one of the few characters to ever beat Bugs Bunny by outwitting him. He knows the right things to say to get under Bugs's skin and in his second appearance, was able to see through Bugs's Paper-Thin Disguise, but plays along to exploit Bugs's bruised ego and put him at a disadvantage, counting on the other rabbits being too stupid to realize they're hindering Bugs. Here, as a result of being the one to antagonize Bugs, it is Cecil who falls for Bugs's tricks, being actually fooled by his disguises and played like a fiddle. In his second appearance when he has Bugs and Porky at gunpoint, Bugs exploit his ego by making him share the details of his crimes and tricking him into siting back on Daffy's broken recliner, knocking him out.
  • For the Evulz: In "Customer Service", Cecil annoys clients of his cable company for the sheer sake of annoying them.
  • Hate Sink: He only exists in the show for making other people's lives miserable For the Evulz and scam them out of their money. There is no depth to his character that could ever make him likable (unlike Daffy).
  • Jerkass: Biggest jerkass in this adaptation.
  • Manipulative Bastard: In "The Shell Game", Cecil manipulates Bugs and later Porky into giving him money in order to fix his shell which was "accidentally" broken by them in two completely separate car accidents that he himself set up.
  • Psychotic Smirk: He makes one in "The Shell Game".
  • Troll: In "Customer Service", where he intentionally irritates Bugs by randomly cutting off his cable, then when he puts the cable back on, he only gets one channel and it's full of Mexican telenovelas!
  • Turtle Power: Though unusual in being unambiguously malevolent.


How well does it match the trope?
