Main Heroic Cast

     Bugs "Wabbit" Bunny 

Voiced by: Jeff Bergman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wabbit_bugs_bunny.jpg

  • The Ace: After a stint as a cynic, Bugs is back to his better-known Karmic Trickster role — though he's not quite as invincible as he was back in the old days.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Whenever Bigfoot is around, Bugs is demoted into this role.
  • Berserk Button: Nothing sets him off faster than seeing/hearing someone do harm to other rabbits.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Bugs is a friendly guy, but when someone really pushes him too far he can be terrifying.
  • Butt-Monkey: Whenever Bigfoot's around.
  • Civilized Animal
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • The Fool: When not outsmarting antagonists directly, he gets by on their own convenient buffoonery.
  • The Trickster: A classical trait for the wascally wabbit.
    • Karmic Trickster: Bugs only messes with others that have directly wronged him or his closest friends.
  • Walking the Earth: Downplayed. While most shorts have Bugs at different locations (with different living establishments), he occasionally revisits locations from past shorts. For instance, "The Spy Who Bugged Me" revisits the Washington, D.C. area established in "White House Rabbit".
  • White Gloves
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Bugs refuses to hit Rhonda because hitting a woman will disappoint his mother. Thankfully, Bugs's mother approves of her son fighting to teach the wrestler a lesson.

     Squeaks the Squirrel

     Bigfoot 

Voiced by: Matthew Mercer

Appearance(s): "Sun Vally Freeze", "Bigfoot In Bed", and "Bugsfoot".

  • Accidental Misnaming: He keeps referring to Bugs as "Lady".
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: "Sun Valley Freeze" had him extremely overshot his throw of Bugs into the side of a glacier.
    Bigfoot: "Sorry lady, I was trying to get you over to that ridge".
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Questions why Bugs owns a closet full of clothes if he never wears them.
  • Gentle Giant: Never intentionally harms Bugs... the key word is intentionally.
  • Invincible Incompetent
  • Lethally Stupid: He's such a bumbling idiot and causes so much trouble for Bugs that one has to wonder why Bugs even bothers trying to help him.
  • No-Neck Chump: Bigfoot's head seems to be molding within his broad shoulders and body.
  • Too Dumb to Live: His debut episode ("Sun Valley Freeze") demonstrates his complete bumbling and obviousness about the world, especially to escape Hazmats attempting to capture and study the beast. Even when he's right within reasonable range of danger from said hunters, he's only saved by his own dumb luck, Bugs's intervention, and/or the Hazmats' own case of this trope.

Antagonists (a.k.a Bugs's Targets)

     Yosemite Sam  

Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche (season 1), Fred Tatasciore (season 2)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wabbit_yosemite_sam.jpg
Appearances: "Buddha Bugs", "The Inside Bugs", "World Wide Wabbit", "The Wringer", "All Belts Are Off", "Hairplane Mode"

  • Angrish: Usually mixed in his Southern-styled vernacular.
  • Butt-Monkey: His abuse from Bugs reaches extreme heights.
  • Crazy Cat Lady: Considering that he lives alone and has pet cats, a case of cat figurines, and pictures of cats, he can be considered a male version of this trope.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Sam and the Bullet Train", which focuses on Sam's attempts to rob the titular train.
  • Disco Dan: A lot of Sam's attempts at robbery would have worked a bit better back at the 20th century, but not so much in the 21st century. He was so focused on robbing a bank that he mistook Bugs explanation on how everything is digitized and on the internet now.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Yosemite Sam rarely has patience for anything, much less for a pesky rabbit. Therefore, he has a tendency to react to everything in gun-blazing fits of rage.
  • The Napoleon: Yosemite's pretty short compared to lankier Bugs.

     Wile E. Coyote  

Voiced by: John Paul Karliak

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wabbit_wile_e_coyote.png
Appearances: "Leaf It Alone", "To Catch A Fairy" (cameo), "Bugs in the Garden", "Aromatherapest", "Raising Your Spirits" (cameo)

  • Butt-Monkey: Tied with Yosemite Sam on this.
  • Civilized Animal
  • Complexity Addiction: In "Leaf It Alone" he uses overly complex methods to get a leaf off his lawn when he could just pick it up. In general, he will always prefer to do things in the most complicated and technologically sophisticated way possible.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Leaf It Alone", "Bugs in the Garden" and "Aromatherapest" feature Wile E. in a primary role.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Rather than use tomato juice out of pride, his first attempt to get rid of the skunk smell was to cover himself in cement mix. You can guess what happens next.
  • For Science!: Wile E.'s philosophy, especially to perform the most mundane of tasks.
  • Hate at First Sight: Upon meeting his classical nemesis.
    Wile E: I don't know why, but something deep inside tells me I must destroy that bird.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: True to the original, a lot of the abuse he suffers is at the hands of his own needlessly complicated machines malfunctioning on him, although Bugs does sometimes sabatoge them for good measure.
  • Insufferable Genius: Supported by his technical and strategic wits, Wile E. unintentionally berates his neighbor, Bugs, for his old-fashioned ways of living.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: He is almost never explicitly a danger to Bugs, just kind of a condescending jerk of a neighbor.
  • Suddenly Voiced: He uses his mannerisms seen in classic Wile E. and Bugs shorts, which includes being able to talk.

     Sir Littlechin  

Voiced by: Daran Norris

Appearance(s): "St. Bugs and the Dragon", "Sir Littlechin, Griffin Hunter", "Just One of Those Days", "Sir Littlechin, Unicorn Hunter", "Knight and Duck", "Sir Littlechin and the Kraken", "Sir Littlechin and the Phoenix", "Littlechin and the Wood Fairy", “Hare to the Throne”

  • Defeat Means Friendship: While he didn't actively try to harm or berate Bugs like most examples listed, he didn't appreciate Bugs and Squeaks' constant interloping (his last straw had him attempt to kill the two after the dragon escapes). Once Bugs foiled his plans of killing a local dragon, he ends up making some casual peace with him and Squeaks. He also befriends the dragon after it saves him from falling to his death.
  • Large Ham: It helps that he's a proud, dragon-seeking knight voiced by Daran Norris.
  • I Call It "Vera": His sword, Dirk, is apparently his best friend.
  • Narrator All Along: In Hare to the Throne.
  • Running Gag: Blowing his horn loudly, sometimes right in Bug's face.

     Cal 

Voiced by: Eric Bauza

Appearance(s): "For the Love of Acorns", "The Spy Who Bugged Me" (cameo), "Bugs of Chance" (cameo), "Bugs the Gladiator", "Gold Medal Wabbit", "Ponce de Calzone", "Genghis Cal",

  • Catchphrase: "You're in my zone. My Cal-zone!"
  • Jerk Jock
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Though Cal in "For the Love of Acorns" was being a jerk, Bugs and Squeaks were trespassing on the field, vandalizing property and interrupting a game.
  • Multiethnic Name: His full name is the multiethnic "Vladimir Angelo Chafong Reginald McMurthy".
  • Overly Long Name: His full name is "Vladimir Angelo Chafong Reginald McMurthy".

     Shameless O'Scanty 

Voiced by: Carlos Alazraqui

Appearance(s): "The Game is a Foot", "The Lepra-Con", "Just One of Those Days", "Erin Go Bugs", "Lucky Duck"

     The Grim Rabbit  

Grunts provided by by: Dee Bradley Baker and Fred Tatasciore

Appearance(s): "The Grim Rabbit", "Grim on Vacation", "Your Bunny or Your Life", "Just One of Those Days", "Quiet the Undertaking"

     Vice President Leslie P. Lilylegs  

Voiced by: Carlos Alazraqui

Appearance(s): "White House Wabbit", "Bugs Over Par", "Five Star Bugs", "The Wabbit Who Would Be King", "The Wedding Quacksher", "Cyrano de Bugs", "The Knight Time Is The Right Time", "Amaduckus", "#1 Grandpa", "Downtown Wabby"

  • Affably Evil: There are times where he is generally polite.
  • Bizarre and Improbable Golf Game: Tries to pull one on Bugs in "Bugs Over Par". Naturally it all backfires.
  • Butt-Monkey: Even before Bugs or Daffy show up he gets treated like dirt by whoever he works for.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: In one short he is his grandchilren's second favourite grandfather, and he goes through elaborate schemes to make himself the favourite so they'll take him on a trip. When Bugs suggests his grandkids might like him more if he were just nicer, he doesn't understand.
  • The Napoleon: His height and temper are comparable to Sam.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: He frequently appears as the Vice President (or any equivalent second in charge position) of just about anything imaginable. In one case, he is inexplicably an assistant manager of a company despite the fact that the head manager position is vacant.
  • The Starscream: No matter what second in command job position he is holding, he is always gunning for the top position.
  • Vice-President Who?: To the point that people were surprised we still have a Vice President. The spirit of the trope continues to apply to him no matter what job he actually has.

Appearance(s): "Not Lyin' Lion", "Mile Hi Grub", "Thes in the City", "Looney Luau", "Porky and Thes"

  • Panthera Awesome: He's a lion whose king of the jungle.
  • Running Gag: His thick lisp means he usually has to spell his name out to properly introduce himself, lest he be mistaken for "Theth".

Voiced by: Eric Bauza

  • Fake Muscles: After getting his muscles punctured, Rock is revealed to be a scrawny goat.

Appearance(s): "Sun Valley Freeze", "Bugsfoot", "Superscooter 3000", "Affaire du Jour", "The Pepe Le Pew Affair", "Loon-Raker", "Area Fifty Run"

Appearance(s): "Bugs on Ice", "Game, Set, Wabbit", "AbracaWabbit", "Good Duck to You Cirque", "Viktor the Science Swede"

     Tad Tucker 

Voiced by: Carlos Alazraqui

Apperance(s): "Survivalist of the Fittest", "Love It or Survivalist It", "Tad the Bachelor", "The Tad Tucker Workout", "Tad the Skydiver"

  • Gaslighting: A common tactic Bugs does to Tucker is obstructing his videos (usually by bodily harm) without ever once revealing himself.
  • Failed a Spot Check: He never seems to notice Bugs whenever he's close behind him.
  • Humiliation Conga: He usually gets very battered by Bugs whenever he has an episode. For example, by the end of his debut episode, he is left with nothing but getting mauled to pieces.
  • Jerkass: He can be this as he rejects a girl because she doesn't eat rabbit stew.
  • Sanity Slippage: Some episodes have him grow a five o'clock shadow beard within days of being harassed by Bugs.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He prides himself being a self-made man able to do whatever he puts his mind to (camping, home remodeling, exercise, ect.) and likes to make videos to promote his teachings.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: A family of rabbits. Not a rabbit, not a couple of rabbits, but a whole family. Naturally, whenever Bugs hears about him brag about eating them in earshot, he retaliates by ruining whatever show Tucker is doing and driving him crazy.
  • Unknown Rival: Purposely invoked and played with by Bugs. Bugs personally has a vendetta towards Tucker for eating rabbits, but prefers to sabotage Tucker's videos without his knowledge or even letting him know he exists.

Other Characters

     Daffy Duck 

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker

Appearance(s): Season 2

  • Catchphrase: "WOOHOO! WOOHOO! WOOHOOHOOHOOHOOHOOO!"
  • Character Check: While odd revivals beforehand have made checks to his earlier wackier self, the egotistical Butt-Monkey Daffy was commonly the contemporary version. The show however straight up uses Tex Avery's original Screwy Squirrel Daffy in full form.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His first instinct upon being released from a box in "Porky's Duck-livery Service" is to bounce off the walls and annoy Porky.
  • Keet: It's clear that he's back to this since he's seen to be hyperactive.
  • Leitmotif: A chaotic tune employing tubas, cymbals and cowbells, befitting his "daffy" nature.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: One of his trademarks in this series, to a much greater extent than Bugs. He rarely lets an episode pass without donning at least two or three disguises to fool his opponents.
  • Pet the Dog: While mostly a completely self-centered Screwy Squirrel who messes with people because it's funny, he does have moments where he'll do nice things for other people.
  • Screwy Squirrel: Appears to be this, befitting his persona from his earliest cartoons, such as Daffy Duck and Egghead. Also slides a bit into Jerkass territory, just a little bit.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: He finally one-ups Bugs in one episode of the series, "One Carroter in Search of an Artist". For an extra touch, it was the exact same way Bugs trolled Daffy in "Duck Amuck".
    "This animation thing is a lot easier than they said it would be. Ain't I a stinker?

     Porky Pig 

Voiced by: Bob Bergen

Appearance(s): "Airpork Security" "Hare to the Throne"

     Elmer Fudd 

Voiced by: Jeff Bergman

Appearance(s): "Bugs in the Petting Zoo", "Duck Days of Summer"
  • Adaptational Heroism: He at least got one when he helps Bugs to save the day.
  • Affably Evil: Whenever he is an antagonist he is usually running a seemingly nice operation that underscores his own selfish motives, such as hiring Bugs to work in his petting zoo "to bring happiness to all the children", but treating the animals like prisoners during non working hours.
  • Bald of Evil: Depends if he happens to be the antagonist of the episode.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: Of course! He's Elmer Fudd, after all.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: Oh, so averted! Although he's rarely using his shotgun, he gets to use it in "Wahder, Wahder, Everywhere".

     Pepé Le Pew 

Voiced by: Eric Bauza

Appearance(s): "Superscooter 3000", "Affaire du Jour", "The Pepé Le Pew Affair", "Loon-Raker", "The Pepe Who Came in from the Cold"

     Marvin the Martian 

Voiced by: Eric Bauza

Appearance(s): "When Marvin Comes Martian In"

     Gabby Goat 

Voiced By: Bob Bergen

Apppearances: "Gettin' Your Goat", "Tweet Team"

  • The Bus Came Back: Gabby is an obscure character who hasn't been seen in the franchise since 1937, and "Gettin' Your Goat" marks his long-belated return to the franchise.
  • Butt-Monkey: He suffers greatly at the hands of Porky Pig despite his best intentions, even if it's just Porky giving him a massage.
  • The Cynic: He's bitter and mean, and was the least enthusiastic member about being part of the "Tweet Team".
  • Deadpan Snarker: This incarnation has a dry sense of wit. Likely done to make him less inoffensive unlike the original cartoons he was in.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: An 80-year absence from the franchise hasn't done anything to sweeten his disposition.

     Tazmanian Devil 

Voiced By: Jim Cummings

  • Dancing Tropes: Taz loves to dance when he hears the sound of castanets.
  • Hidden Depths: Prank Week shows that Taz has a job in order to support his family but since he is fired, he reverts back to being feral ever since.
  • Team Rocket Wins: Taz beats up Foghorn and drags him away to be eaten in Fowl Me Once.
