Western Animation / The Looney Tunes Show

Go To
There goes the neighborhood.
A show that premiered in 2011 on Cartoon Network as another attempt at reviving the Looney Tunes 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 runs a pizza place (and lives in Bugs' house). 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 lukewarm ratings during its run, the show was put on hiatus in 2013. It was followed by Wabbit: A Looney Tunes Production in 2015.

This show is not to be confused with the Cartoon Network installment show that aired the original shorts.

Out of nowhere, Warner Bros. Animation announced a DVD/digital-only The Looney Tunes Show movie coming in 2015, about Bugs and Lola Bunny globe-trotting the world to retrieve an invisibility spray Lola invented before their enemies get hold of it first. The result, Looney Tunes: Rabbits Run, wasn't directly related to this series, but was similar enough to serve as a Stealth Sequel.

    Tropes A 
  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: A Wile E. Coyote short has him being cut to ribbons by the Roadrunner's talons in a ninja-style fight.
  • Accidental Misnaming:
    • Speedy does never seem to remember Porky's name, so he calls him "Pinky".
    • When Lola has a temporary crush on Daffy, she accidentally calls Bugs that.
  • Accidental Proposal: In "Members Only", Bugs is planning to break up with Lola. as he approaches the table, he trips and drops a mint under chair. As he kneels down to pick it up, Lola assumes he is proposing and immediately accepts.
  • The Ace:
    • In this show, Speedy has no apparent flaws, 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!
    • 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' 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.
  • Adaptational Modesty: Lola Bunny. Despite her Girliness Upgrade, Lola's seductiveness and Ms. Fanservice traits from Space Jam are removed in this show, although she's still cute in a non-sexual way in order to match her kooky and quirky personality.
  • Adaptational Ugliness: When Bugs has dressed in drag before, he's always been treated as a bomb shell. Whenever he does it in this version, he's typically called out as being ugly. Except for Speedy.
  • Adaptation Decay: Parodied in "A Christmas Carol" with, well, A Christmas Carol. Lola's play of the story is so far removed from the original that it's unrecognizable.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Witch Hazel becomes Witch Lezah.
  • Adaptation Personality Change:
    • Lola. 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. 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 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; she's just a doting mother, modeled after an African-American woman.
  • Adaptational Heroism: 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) were all nicer than their counterparts in the original shorts.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Cecil Turtle. In the original shorts in which Cecil starred alongside and against Bugs, he was generally a foil to Bugs, although he was just as ruthless and cunning as him in competition. In this adaptation, he is given an extremely jerkass personality reminiscent of the various antagonists that justifiably deserve Bugs' Karmic Trickster antics.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In the original shorts, Porky was the snarky straight man to Daffy. Here he's more of a doormat to him.
  • Advertised Extra: The opening intro shows several blink-and-you'll-miss characters who never appear in the show at all, including Claude Cat, Owl Jolson, Charlie Dog, Sam Sheepdog, Hippity Hopper, and others.
  • 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!"
    • Receives a Call-Back when Lola tries to come up with a name for the Gopher she bought: "I'm thinking either Count Leopold von Liechtenstein or...Don." Bugs advises her to go with the latter.
  • Affably Evil: Marvin the Martian. He believes in being polite, but also shoots people with laser beams and wants to destroy the Earth.
  • 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 Taz 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 for Nothing: Bugs' entire plan to get out of going to the Peach Festival with Porky entailed inventing a female relative, wasting several hundred dollars on shipping fees to his own house and getting imprisoned in Albania by accident for a year leads to him right back to being in time for next year's Peach Festival.
  • 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 straight in "Rebel Without a Glove", where Bugs Bunny becomes Thugs Bunny, a biker, which makes Lola love him even more still.
  • Alternate History: According to Granny, she took part in World War 2 shortly before the Allies freed France from Germany. Her mission ended up fighting to prevent the theft of the Eiffel Tower and after returning it, was gifted it to take home while a replica was quickly placed in Paris.
  • 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.)
  • Ambiguously Gay: Mac and Tosh, the Goofy Gophers.
  • 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.
  • Animation Bump:
  • Animesque: Again, Daffy Duck: The Wizard.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Armed Farces: The B Story in "Semper Lie" involves Daffy accidentally enlisting in the Marine Corps. Bizarrely, this turns out to be the one job he is not incompetent at, but he is discharged at the end of the episode for having flat feet. (Because he's a duck).
  • Art Evolution:
    • 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.
    • Porky became chubbier, with rounder features and his skin being a more vibrant shade of pink, overall closer to how he looked in the original shorts.
    • 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), she's much more curvy (her chest is notably larger in Season 2) and her dress changed from purple and yellow to cerulean and white.
    • Yosemite Sam's shirt changed from red in the first season, to blue in the second season.
    • The second season also does away with the "paint splatter" style applied to the background and various elements (such as smoke and fluids) and becomes reminiscent of The Life and Times of Juniper Lee.
  • 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.
    • The superhero portions of "SuperRabbit" are done to resemble Superman: The Animated Series.
  • 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.
  • Attack! Attack... Retreat! Retreat!: In "Sunday Night Slice", Bugs buys out Gerardi's, his favorite pizza restaurant, when it closes down, and hires Daffy, Porky, Marvin the Martian, and Pete Puma to run it. Thanks to their inexperience, their attempts to run Gerardi's are a disaster. At one point, this exchange occurs:
    (Cash register rings)
    Bugs: Oooh, I like the sound of that!
    Porky: (As he hands a customer his dollar back) Here's your refund.
    Bugs: Oh. Don't like the sound of that.
  • 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 from the real Tina.

    Tropes B 
  • Bad Boss: Frankenheimer in "Eligible Bachelors." He slaps his men for laughing with him, and when one of them misses Granny and Tweety with his machine gun, he throws the guy out to his death.
  • Bad Job, Worse Uniform: In "Peel of Fortune", Bugs has to take a job at an ice cream parlor where the uniform includes an ice cream cone hat.
  • Badass Biker: Tina at the end of "Rebel Without a Glove".
  • Badass Driver: Lola Bunny in the episode "The DMV".
  • 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.
    • In "The Foghorn Leghorn Story", Mac and Tosh's appraisal rate seems to be going in the direction of being oddly specific given their Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness, but then they opt for the obvious answer.
      Tosh: Well, given today's marketplace...
      Mac: The scarcity of Satsuma ceramics...
      Tosh: And factoring in the current value of the Yen...
      Mac: I'd say your vase is worth approximately...
      Both: A MILLION dollars!
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: 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.
  • Behind the Black: Apparently, Daffy didn't notice that Granny had the real Eiffel Tower behind her house.
  • 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.
  • Big "WHY?!": Whenever Bugs Bunny tries to break up with Cloudcuckoolander Lola Bunny she turns on the Ocular Gushers and bawls "Whyyy?" not so much asking for an explanation as to shame Bugs into recanting. Which always works.
  • Bilingual Bonus:
    • Yosemite Sam really is speaking in Russian when he calls the woman he met online over the phone.
    • Whenever Speedy Gonzales 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, weird 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 invoked"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".
  • Bowling for Ratings: Daffy has a bowling team consisting with his old gang of high school losers Porky (who was the school jock and Daffy's bully), Marvin the Martian, and Pete Puma. Bugs joins despite Daffy's dismay as well.
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs:
    Bugs: 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 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.
  • 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!
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Implied Trope. For many people, the day Daffy "died" is (implied to be) a tragic day because he's a beloved city council member. For him, it isn't anything special, judging from how apathetic he seems.
  • The Butler Did It:
    Bugs: (after reading a Mary Higgins Clark novel) The butler's butler did it, huh?
  • 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.
    • Foghorn Leghorn's assistant Carol also tends to be one. Even though she points out how many of his decisions are idiotic, he dismisses her almost every time.
    • 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.

    Tropes C 
  • 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 favorite movies).
  • Calling Me a Logarithm: In "Bugs and 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.
  • Catchphrase:
    • 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. Also, 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.
    • 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.
  • 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.
    • Daffy is probably the biggest offender of the bunch.
      • He's spent countless time and (someone else's) money converting his car into a (dangerously un-road safe) parade float. For what parade? Good question.
      "I'm not in a parade, I am the parade."
  • 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.
  • Contrived Coincidence: After a series of events leads to Daffy joining the Marines and Bugs getting arrested and imprisoned in Albania, Daffy is sent on a rescue mission in Albania one year later, which happens to take place at the same prison Bugs was holed up at.
  • 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".
  • Crappy Homemade Gift: In the "Chintzy" Merrie Melodies music video (part of "The Shelf"), Daffy is unimpressed with the childhood photo of him and Porky together that the latter gave to him for his birthday. He then explains to Porky in song that chintzy gifts are ones that are homemade like scarves and sweaters, and gifts that are not chintzy are expensive things like gold and gems. One of the lines in the song is "Try to stay away from arts and crafts".
  • 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".

    Tropes D-H 
  • 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 Merrie Melody to go with it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Bugs Bunny and Tina are the reigning champions in this.
  • Deconstruction: The show is a cynical sitcom one for the Looney Tunes mythos, as it places the characters and their usual quirks in a more grounded and realistic environment and how it adapts to it.
  • 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:
  • Descent into Addiction:
    • One episode has Bugs get horribly addicted to Porky's unhealthy catering food, causing him to host parties every night just to get more of it, and he eventually gets morbidly obese.
    • Another episode has Bugs getting hooked on Spargle, a highly addictive soda. It turns out that Spargle has highly addictive chemicals in it.
  • Desires Prison Life: Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are both sent to prison for contempt of court, and when they both escape, Bugs tries to convince Daffy to turn them both in, because Bugs thought prison was the best thing to ever happen to him.
  • 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 Not Think This Through: After winning a whole day-long date with Bugs, Lola decides to spend it in Paris. Problem is, it takes 10 hours for the flights between the US and France, meaning that she only has 4 hours with Bugs.
  • 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:
  • 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.
    • Played for Laughs, though a group of cavemen think giving/tossing someone toilet paper once is enough to warrant to No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • 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.
  • Double Take: After his date with Lola in Paris, Bugs tapes a picture of them in front of the Eiffel Tower on the fridge, only to be flabbergasted upon seeing a picture of Daffy on the same day in front of the real Eiffel Tower at Granny's house.
  • 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. Although for the latter, it zig-zags between this and Badass Driver.
  • 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.
    • In earlier episodes Bugs was more of a Cloudcuckoolander than Daffy was, while Bugs was clearly still the more intelligent of the two, he got excited over seeing lockers at a highschool, and enjoyed being in prison to the point of trying to get thrown back in after accidentally escaping with Daffy and was in tears when his sentence was served and he had to leave.
  • 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.
  • Embarrassing Ad Gig: This show has Bugs Bunny appear in a televised commercial for Pizzarriba, casually stating, "I like it." In-universe Pop-Cultural Osmosis makes this phrase into Bugs Bunny's ad hoc Catchphrase, which disturbs him. Even a squad of firefighters arriving to quell a fire at Bugs's house pause to ask Bugs to repeat the "I like it" phrase.
  • Enemy Mine: Sylvester and Tweety work together to escape the Tasmanian Devil when it gets inside Granny's house.
  • Epic Fail:
    • In "To Bowl or Not to Bowl", Daffy is tied with the opposing team in a bowling tournament and is two pins away from winning. He first gets a gutter ball, is given a free turn due to a technicality, then gets another gutter ball. He's so mortified by his embarrassing loss that he stands motionless in the bowling alley all night.
    • In "Working Duck", Daffy is hired to be a muffin man in Enormocorp, the fifth largest conglomerate in the world. The CEO, Foghorn Leghorn, is so impressed with Daffy that he makes Daffy his successor. On his first day as CEO, Daffy makes one bad decision leading to the company going bankrupt, 100,000s of people losing their jobs, and experts fearing the entire world economy could collapse.
  • 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 in the first episode.
    • And another one in "Newspaper Thief"...
      Daffy: Welcome, suspects! I mean, neighbors! (insane cackling) ... I guess no one's ever heard of maniacal laughter.
    • Cecil does one throughout "The Shell Game".
    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)
    Bugs: (looks at the audience confused) Who are you looking at?
  • 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.
  • Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: In "Semper Lie", when Bugs gets arrested and thrown in jail in Albania because the people at the airport suspects that he's a spy when he arrives to Albania dressed as a woman:
  • Expy:
    • Tina Russo, Daffy's new girlfriend, is essentially a new version of Melissa Duck from two old shorts.
    • Gustavo from "Pizzarriba" 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.
    • The employee at The Inside Scoop from "Peel of Fortune" bears a slight resemblance to Little John from the short "Rabbit Hood", except he has curly brown hair that sticks out like Larry Fine from The Three Stooges.
  • 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".
  • Faking the Dead: Daffy when he becomes too popular as member of the city council and discover the "Prop 14," which is to make Daffy's seat on city council permanent because of his overwhelming popularity. Unwilling to be in city council forever, Daffy decides to fake his own death by driving his parade float off a bridge and into a river.
  • Falling-in-Love Montage: Bugs and Lola have one in Paris.
  • 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.
    • Cecil Turtle threatened to use a pistol on Bugs and Porky in "Shell Game", when they discover the secret about the turtle's cracked shell.
    • 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.
    • In the Merrie Melody "Be Polite", a cop is seen aiming a very realistic looking Beretta 92FS at a criminal.
  • 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: In the series appear many beautiful women both in the plot and in the musical number. Best example are the female backup dancers in the Merrie Melody "Blow My Stack", Starlett Johansson in "Casa de Calma", Foghorn Leghorn's assistant, and the contestants of a beauty pageant in "Year of the Duck".
  • "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.)
  • Fiction 500: In the show, Bugs has invented the carrot peeler and lives off the very hefty royalties. He's able to buy extravagant things and never seems to be out of cash, especially having Daffy mooch off him.
  • 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 but in season 2 he got nicer.
  • 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.
  • Foreshadowing:
  • 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.
  • Formula-Breaking Episode: "Casa de Calma" which resembles more like classic Looney Tunes setup than a sitcom. Also "Ridiculous Journey" which is a road trip 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.
  • 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."
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus:
    • When Lola loses her mother's bracelet in "The Black Widow" her ankles are always concealed from the audience's view, foreshadowing that it's there the whole time.
    • In the Merrie Melodies song "Blow My Stack," the library sections are marked with signs of classic directors - (Friz) Freling, (Bob) Clampett, (Tex) Avery and (Chuck) Jones.
  • 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.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Spider: In the episode, "Itsy Bitsy Gopher", Bugs and his friends are afraid of a big spider that appears in their house. After several failed attempts to kill the spider, Gossamer later appears looking for Webster, his pet spider, whom Bugs believed was the spider him and his friends were trying to kill. That turned out not to be the case, as Gossamer informs Bugs that Webster is harmless, and the spider that Bugs tried to save was in fact, a deadly African sand spider, who bites his hand.
  • Friendship Favoritism: In the episode "Best Friends Redux", when Bugs' childhood friend, Rodney Rabbit, comes to visit him, Daffy begins to question who Bugs' best friend really is, though Bugs insists that adults can't really have best friends, but rather a whole bunch of friends. Daffy decides to travel back in time to ensure that he is Bugs' oldest and best friend. Within the same episode, Daffy has his own top nine best friends list, which, in order from nine to one, are Porky, Granny, a stranger who pardoned him in the restroom of Pizzarriba, Carl (A stranger he met in a Phoenix Airport), A tie between Pete Puma and Marvin the Martian, Speedy Gonzales, Big Fat Rooster (Foghorn Leghorn), Tina, and Bugs.
  • "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's brief. There hasn't been an episode where it focuses on them together although their Distaff Counterpart, Daffy and Lola, do. Oddly enough there *is* an episode where Bugs spends most of the story hanging out with Tina's dad.
  • 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."
  • Furniture Assembly Gag: The episode "The Shelf" centers around Bugs Bunny getting a Nobel Prize and needing a place to display it. He goes out and buys a shelf, refusing the offer to have it installed professionally because "I won a Nobel Prize, I think I can put up a shelf." This leads to a series of progressively disastrous hijinks as Bugs's house is systematically destroyed even as the rabbit continually rebukes any advice on the merits of his award.
  • Furry Confusion:
    • Porky gets a horrifying revelation upon finding out exactly what pepperoni (his favourite pizza topping) is made of. Ouch. Even scarier, he eats when he's upset, and upon finding out what Pepperoni he gets is into a massive depression and eats... more pepperoni.
    • Lola and Daffy Duck bringing a pet gopher as a substitute for one of the Funny Animal gophers (Mac and Tosh) who was presumed missing.
    • The series as a whole attempts to avoid this in regards to Sylvester and Tweety. The two are treated as domestic pets and never directly interact with the other talking animal characters like Bugs or Daffy.
  • 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 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.
  • 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".
  • Glove Slap: Done to two Nazi Mooks in "Eligible Bachelors."
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: The major premise of the show is that almost 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.
  • Grandma's Recipe: In the episode, "Bobcats On Three!", after Porky's catering business hasn't had much luck, Bugs convinces Porky to use his Grandmother's recipes, which are all full of butter. Soon, Porky's business is back on track, particularly because Bugs becomes addicted to the food and throws parties that he wants Porky to cater just so he can eat the food. Eventually, all of Bugs' friends are sick of his parties, so he invites complete strangers. Porky warns Bugs that the recipes might be unhealthy, but Bugs pays no attention. Sure enough, the food he is addicted to has made him very fat.
  • 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.
  • Guilty Until Someone Else Is Guilty: In "Spread Those Wings and Fly," Bugs Bunny accuses Yosemite Sam of stealing his TV and calls the cops, which Sam denies. Once Bugs sees Daffy Duck stealing stuff while sleepwalking, and discovers all the other things Daffy stole, Bugs realizes that Sam is innocent. Bugs apologizes to Sam by giving Sam his replacement Nobel Prize.
  • 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"?
      Daffy: Sure. They're a sign of respect.
      Bugs: Then why no mall shirt?
      Daffy: Too much respect. It's a mall, not church.
    • 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. Weiner" after he inhales a tank of helium to stretch is stomach to win a hotdog eating contest.
  • Hello Again, Officer: In "DMV", a traffic cop pulls over Daffy and Bugs (the latter a passenger in the car) and finds out the former doesn't have a driver's license. Not too long after, when Bugs gets a ride from Lola, they are pulled over by the same traffic cop only to find out that Lola doesn't have a license either. Later, when waiting for Porky to pick him up, Porky is pulled over for talking on a cell phone while driving, and when Bugs discovers it's the same cop, he sheepishly waves at him. At the end of the episode, when Bugs is the one finally pulled over for crossing a double yellow line, Bugs greets the officer, "Hello again."
  • 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."
    • Don't forget "Skunk Funk." Just...everything about it, though this is justified, given that it's freakin' Pepé Le Pew.
  • Hourglass Plot: Daffy and Porky’s friendship can be seen as this, given their past. Daffy is a Toxic Friend Influence who is constantly taking advantage of Porky and making his life miserable. In high school, however, Porky was a Jerk Jock who bullied Daffy the dork, so badly that Daffy gave himself false memories that their roles were switched to block out the trauma.
  • 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.
  • Humiliation Conga: Near the ending of "Shell Game", two of the characters (Porky and Bugs) Cecil conned find out about his scheme in which the turtle pretends to have a broken shell and swindle innocents out of their money. When he tries pulling a They Know Too Much with a gun, Bugs (who he only felt contempt for) outsmarts him, causing his shell to be legitimately cracked this time. Cecil's gun then gets taken from him, Bugs mocks him, and he gets arrested.
  • 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.

    Tropes I-P 
  • 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 great 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 Believe It's Not Meth!). Bugs, who gets addicted to Spargle, even starts scratching himself all over when he runs out, and resorts to breaking into Yosemite Sam's house and ransacking the place, muttering about where Sam keeps the Spargle.
  • 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 (apart from Pete, which really says something) who did not know on first sight that Taz 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.
  • 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.
    • Bugs still enjoys dressing like a woman and is very prickly about his attractiveness in drag.
  • 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".
  • 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!"
    • In "The Foghorn Leghorn Story":
      "That's all I needed to hear."
  • Irony: In "You've Got Hate Mail", Daffy accidentally sends out an email detailing everything he dislikes about everyone he knows. The person with the most angry response is kindly old lady Granny, who flattens Daffy in one punch. The person with the most docile response is the Hot-Blooded Yosemite Sam, who believes that everything Daffy wrote about him was harsh, but valid, and tries to change his ways in response to reading it.
  • 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. To nearly sociopathic levels, especially in the first season.
    • Cecil Turtle. He takes a day out of every week to pick some random person, who is paying his company money it should be noted, and make their life as difficult as he possibly can for no good reason.
  • 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 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: Daffy's lowest point is in "The Float" where he cons Porky out of all his savings and splurges mercilessly in order to obtain a yacht to replace the parade float.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Last-Second Word Swap: The Merrie Melody "Parade Float" has the lyrics Just don't try to pass or he'll flatten your car (instead of saying ass).
  • Laugh with Me!: Parodied. When Nazi officer Frankenheimer does his Evil Laugh, a couple of his men try to join in. He promptly smacks them until they stop.
  • 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 see Lola playing the organ in the corner of the antiques store.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: Anthropomorphic animals and humans populate the neighborhood.
  • 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: The Incredible Journey 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 badassness in his Merrie 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.
  • 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).
  • Miserable Massage: One episode had Bugs and Daffy head out for a spa day and get some massages. Bugs gets a dainty female masseuse who's delicate and gentle. While Daff gets a gets a muscular male one who's... not so much.
  • "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.
  • Mistaken for Thief: In one episode, Daffy thinks everyone stole his newspaper, but really he just forgot to renew his subscription.
  • 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 Eiffel 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 usually. Bugs becomes this 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).
  • Mugshot Montage: In "Jailbird and Jailbunny", Bugs and Daffy are placed in prison for both not paying a littering fine and contempt of court. Before being taken to prison, Daffy's photographs showing his sheer horror while Bugs poses for the camera in an amusing fashion, the last one with his arms around the security officers.
  • Mundane Made Awesome:
    • Daffy Duck: The Wizard in its entirety. The whole music video is basically Daffy imagining things to be cooler than they actually are, such as imagining him flying on a dragon and bursting into a tavern. In reality, he actually just is going to the Quesadilla Shack.
    • The music used for the bowling tournament in "To Bowl or Not To Bowl".
      Soaring like an eagle
      Over crashing waves of guts and glory!
    • At the end of the pizza episode, where Daffy, Pete and Marvin deliver pizza from a freaking tank certainly qualifies.
  • Musical Nod: The theme from the 1966 Road Runner Show is used as the intro for the CGI Road Runner/Coyote shorts.
  • 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: The show is full of 'em.
  • 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".
  • New Friend Envy: In "Best Friends Redux", Bugs receives the visit of his childhood best friend named Rodney Rabbit, which causes Bugs’ friend and roommate Daffy to become jealous. The duck even goes so far as to travel in time and prevent Rodney from ever meeting Bugs. This in turn creates an alternate timeline where Bugs never sent a letter to Rodney, and thus never randomly met Daffy while sending said letter in the first place, forcing the duck to go back in time and fix his mistake.
  • 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 outer 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 differences were that Daffy's bill and legs are a darker shade of orange and the fake Tina was flat chested.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: In the episode "Casa de Calma", Daffy gets massaged by a giant, hairy man named Leslie, who looks like he came straight out of The Ren & Stimpy Show. To further emphasize the contrast, Bugs gets massages by an attractive woman named Joe.
  • 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.
    • Daffy claims to have met Michael Jackson at the Denver airport. Bugs asks about it, but Daffy doesn't clarify. Though knowing Daffy, he was likely lying or mistaken.
  • Not Good with Rejection: Lola and Bugs both fall under this category in an episode of Season 2; they mistakenly believe that the other broke up with them. Lola becomes a monk and takes a year-long vow of silence, while Bugs leaves everything behind and becomes a fisherman. They work things out, though.
  • 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.
  • Obsession Song: "We Are In Love".
  • Odd Couple: Can a rabbit and a 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 generally 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.
    • Foghorn Leghorn's assistant Carol, who repeatedly tries and fails to keep her boss from associating himself with Daffy due to the latter's habit of ruining the former's business ventures.
  • 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".
  • Paint It Black: In "Rebel Without a Glove", Bugs loses his signature white gloves, which turns him into a Nervous Wreck because he feels they define his personality. As a last-ditch replacement, he purchases some black leather gloves, which causes his personality to transform into that of a '90s Anti-Hero, resulting in him being a Jerkass to everyone around him.
  • Palatial Sandcastle: In one episode, Bugs and Daffy build sandcastles to impress a girl. Daffy builds an ordinary castle. Bugs builds a truly colossal sandcastle, complete with a drawbridge.
  • Papa Wolf: In the Merrie Melody "Yellow Bird", Crusher beats the tar out of Sylvester for ruining his daughter's sandcastle.
  • Paper Destruction of Anger: Bugs, jittery from the effects of caffeine, accuses his physician, Dr. Weisberg, of not being a real doctor. Pulling the doctor's diploma off the wall, Bugs reads it, and cries: "Syracuse? That's a basketball school!" Bugs breaks the frame open, then halves the diploma. Doctor Weisberg calmly explains his diagnosis, at which Bugs cools down, and hands the wrecked diploma to his doctor. "You can probably tape this."
  • 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 savvy enough to work out what is going on and play along.
  • Phony Degree: Inverted when Bugs is hopped up on caffeine, 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.

    Tropes R-Z 
  • 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 "Members Only" and the Merrie Melody "Skunk Funk". Then again, it's Pepé 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.
  • "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 INSPACE: 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.
  • Retool: The series was originally going to be more like "Casa de Calma" but was scrapped in favor of what actually made it to air. The second season ditched the Road Runner shorts, and the amount of "Merrie Melodies" shorts was significantly less than the first season.
  • The Reveal: Turns out after Granny returned the Eiffel Tower during the war, she was given the real one to take home, with a replica remaining in France.
  • 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.
    • Any time Daffy gets hurt, he usually screams "CALL DR. WEISBURG!"
  • 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 "Darvog", before announcing that he is going to the kitchen as he feels totally "Darvog". In a Strange Minds Think Alike moment, we later learn that Lola invented a type of sandwich that she calls a Darvog. And, at the end of the episode, Dr. Weisberg 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.
  • Shipper on Deck: Lola's parents like Bugs and want him to marry Lola.
  • 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.
    • There's actually several shoutouts to DC Comics: Daffy claims to be Batman, also wears the costume, there's a similar looking Wonder Woman mannequin in Bugs and Daffy's home, and Bugs mentions the magic word "Shazam!" from Captain Marvel. (And Bugs apparently is Batman.)
    • Just before telling the Superman story, Bugs references the story told in "A Hare Grows in Manhattan" almost word for word.
    • And in the episode when they went to Jail, Daffy yells, "You got to fight for your right to party!"
    • In one episode Buster and Plucky appear as dolls at a fair.
    • In "Blow My Stack", when Sam is walking by the book shelves, the plates on them say "Jones", "Avery" and "Clampett".
    • Similarly, in "Point, Laser Point," Sylvester goes to get help at the "Freleng Help Center," a reference to classic Warner Bros. animator Friz Freleng, who also happens to be Sylvester's creator.
    • The entire opening of the episode "Devil Dog" is a huge Shout-Out to the opening of Jurassic Park, as well as the first cartoon in which the Tasmanian Devil ever appeared.
    • Taz on the wing of an airplane is a reference to The Twilight Zone (1959) episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet".
    • Another horror movie shout out is when we see a point of view of shot from Taz, which is reminiscent of "The Crate" from Creepshow.
    • Speedy takes part in a Dog Whisperer homage in "Devil Dog".
    • The horror movie Daffy watches in the above ep is one from Box Office Bunny.
    • In the Wile E. Coyote/Road Runner episode "Silent But Deadly" both Road Runner and Wily are locked into a direct confrontation with each other, it's laced with Mortal Kombat overtones - Wily's costume akin to Scorpion's outfit, destructive weapons, a dark moonlit night with a fatality to frost the cake!
    • Hey, MISTER! You forgot your lock!
    • Granny's younger look in "Eligible Bachelors" has a startling resemblance to Cinderella.
    • In the same episode when Lola mistakes the Eiffel Tower for Stonehenge, she utters out the familiar line from the end of the Iconic Tootsie Pop commercial.
      Bugs: It's the Eiffel Tower.
      Lola: The world...will never...know...
    • In one Road Runner cartoon, Wile E. and Road Runner run through a loop-de-loop on the ground.
    • The Coyote-Roadrunner short "Heavy Metal" features Wile E. Coyote building a suit of armor in a cave with a box of scraps.
    • Another Coyote-Roadrunner short "Another Bat Idea" has Wile E. Coyote dressed up in a Batman suit complete with explosive Batarangs, Bat Grappling Hook, a cape that flies, and a small shoutout to Adam West.
    • The 3-D WB shield overshooting its mark and nearly crashing into the screen at the start of the opening credits is reminiscent of the opening to the classic 3D short ''Lumber Jack Rabbit''.
    • Bugs is a fan of Groucho Marx (who was a huge influence on his comedy in the old shorts) and, on a more contemporary note, Mary Higgins Clark.
    • Bugs becoming addicted to an RPG game called "Gribbler's Quest", where the character's suit looks a lot like Link's from The Legend Of Zelda.
    • In the episode "It's A Handbag", Lola goes off exploring and Aztec tomb dressed up as Lara Croft.
      • In that same scene, the shot of her about to grab the artifact is very similar to the shot of Aladdin about to grab the lamp, even sharing the same facial expression and pose.
    • In the Road Runner-Coyote 3D short "Unsafe at Any Speed", it references Back to the Future and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
    • In "Year of the Duck", Daffy accidentally calls Elmer "Elmo".
    • Daffy calling himself "Double D" via phone message in "Here Comes the Pig".
  • 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.
      • Lampshaded in the (appropriately titled) episode "The Stud, the Nerd, the Average Joe and the Saint" where Daffy tries to officially assign everyone their roles within their circle of friends. Needless to say, he both completely misidentifies them and changes their role each time he mentions them. Then Dr. Weisberg (of all people) gets in on it and starts referring to Daffy by those titles.
  • Slice of Life: While there is slapstick here and there, the show's premise is "what if the Looney Tunes stars lived (relatively) mundane lives in a neighborhood?".
  • 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: invoked 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.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Might just as easily be called "The Daffy Duck Show".
  • Staged Pedestrian Accident: "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".
  • 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.
  • Stalking Is Funny if It Is Female After Male: The song "We Are In Love" would not have the comedic tone it has if it were about a man stalking a woman instead.
  • Stealth Pun: In "Bugs and Daffy Get a Job", Bugs gets a job working in Porky's office, but Daffy stays unemployed. The subplot involves Daffy getting his beak redone.
  • The Stinger: After the credits, every episode ends with a character popping out from behind the Warner Brother's shield. Often they're saying "That's all folks!" but other times they'll deliver a line or two pertaining to the episode's plot.
  • 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 flashback 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.
  • Stripping Snag: In the prologue to "Peel of Fortune", Bugs and Daffy are at the mall, where Daffy wears a pair of "Mall Pants". Daffy's mall pants get caught in the escalator and sucked off just before the opening credits run.
  • Suicide as Comedy: Towards the end of one episode, Tweety gets so tired of listening to Daffy's piano "music" that he attempts to kill himself via climbing into Sylvester's mouth. Due to not thinking straight, Sylvester doesn't even notice that his Arch-Enemy who really wants to eat entered his mouth. This is all played as a joke, though.
  • Superhero Episode: "SuperRabbit"; the episode is a Whole-Plot Reference to Superman II with Bugs as Superman and Daffy as Zod.
  • Supporting Protagonist:
    • Bugs, who usually steps into the events of an episode as opposed to starting them.
    • In a way, his role in the show is basically playing the Cloudcuckoolander's Minder to Daffy and Lola.
  • 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":
      Lola: Well, you gotta meet him [Tina's dad] at some point. Don't you plan to be with Tina forever?
      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" actually becomeS a recurring pet.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: In "Bobcats on Three", Bugs puts on a lot of weight after he gets addicted to Porky's grandmother's family recipes. Porky eventually cuts him off, saying "No one should eat that much butter!", and an incident at the public pool convinces Bugs to shed the excess pounds.
  • 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."
    *Lola drives up.*
  • 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: Season 1 is animated this way. It's dropped in season 2.
  • 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.
  • Time Skip: The ending to "Jailbird and Jailbunny" takes place after one year of Bugs and Daffy's sentence. Similarly, the ending to "Semper Lie" takes place one year after Bugs is taken to prison.
  • 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 baits himself into pain as per usual.
    "Hey! Mister! You forgot your lock!"
    • In Merrie Melodies, "Stick to My Guns", Yosemite Sam sings about all the dumb decisions he makes throughout his life. Like wearing ankle weights during the "Running of the Bulls", declaring a vendetta on the Mafia, and paying thousands of dollars for one rhinestone.
  • Took a Level in Badass: The Road Runner, of all characters, temporarily takes a level in badass in the CGI short, "Silent But Deadly", where he actually engages in a ninja battle with Wile E. Coyote! Even more so is that we even get to see his angry eyes!
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Bugs Bunny in "Rebel Without a Glove," who became Thugs Bunny after acquiring a new set of gloves.
  • 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.
  • Two Lines, No Waiting: Most episodes basically play out as Daffy heading out to do something (usually crazy) while Bugs is dealing with something else. The two lines normally don't cross paths until the end of the episode in some way. Or sometimes they don't cross at all, and it just ends with both Bugs and Daffy back where they started.
  • Tyop on the Cover: An in-universe example happens in the Merrie Melodies short "Pizzariba". Apparently Slowpoke Rodriguez put "Pibbariza" on the front page of the website for Speedy's pizza place.
    Speedy: What is pibba?
  • Under Strange Management: This is how Speedy Gonzalez ended up running his pizza place. Years ago, the pizzeria was owned by Cool Old Guy Mr Girardi, who eventually decided to retire and move away. Bugs Bunny didn't want his favourite hangout spot to close down, so he bought the place. Of course, he couldn't run it on his own and had to ask Daffy for help. After Bugs named him "Commander-in-Chief of Pizza Operations to get him on board, Daffy started to take the job a little too seriously. They ended up hiring Marvin the Martian, Pete Puma and their friend Porky, and their first day running the restaurant was such a disaster that the local Chinese restaurant sent them a gift basket to thank them for all the costumers their awful service had sent their way. Speedy called Bugs out on the decision to buy the restaurant like this, since he never wanted to run a restaurant and his "I want a place to hang out with my friends" problem could be fixed by converting his garage. Bugs didn't convert his garage, but he wised up: He locked Daffy, Marvin and Pete in the fridge so they wouldn't get in anyone's way, and let Speedy take care of all the work since he was fast enough, responsible enough, and genuinely passionate about making people happy and being surrounded with cheese all day. Eventually, the only decision that made sense was to give the restaurant over to Speedy.
  • 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 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". At least until The Stinger, where we find out that it's an entire cowboy getup for square dancing.
  • 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.
    • Played with regarding the other characters. Half the cast being the usual Funny Animals of the franchise raises no eyebrows and are treated as a normal thing. It's when one of them, usually Daffy or Lola, do something dumb or insane that they tend to take notice.
  • 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". Tweety is a boy.
  • 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.
  • Weird Sun: In "Daffy Duck: The Wizard", a Heavy Mithril short where Daffy imagines himself as an epic wizard, one of the various fantastical details he populates his imaginary world with is a black sun looming in the sky.
  • We Want Our Jerk Back!:
    • In "Best Friends", the series' first episode, Daffy vows to become Bug's best friend ever and becomes... stalker-ish.
    • In the B-plot of "Customer Service", Tina's manager suspends her from Copy Place when he catches her being rude to the customers, so Tina enlists Lola's help in being more positive and upbeat so he can lift her suspension. Near the end of the episode, when Tina's manager tries unsuccessfully to tell Yosemite Sam that he can't photocopy money, he is relieved to see Tina return, and lifts her suspension so she can deal with customers like Sam. When Tina tells him she doesn't think she can be positive and upbeat, he tells her that right now, he needs a rude and mean-spirited employee, admitting that she was right when she said he had no idea how to deal with the customers.
  • Wham Line: In "Customer Service", after being continuously tormented by Cecil throughout the episode, Bugs drops a familiar phrase that signals he's going to be a Karmic Trickster once more for the first time in the series since "Casa de Calma".
  • What Is This, X?: "What is this? Communist Russia?" is Daffy Duck's standard response whenever he is asked for an innocuous piece of information.
  • 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?
  • The Wildcats: In "Bobcats on Three!", Daffy is recruited to coach the school water polo team, the Bobcats. (Which makes very little sense as the name of a water polo team.)
  • Window Love: Bugs and Taz at the end of "Devil Dog". While Taz is on an airplane wing, no less.
  • 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:
    • Lola Bunny is 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 Other Left: When Daffy is training on a flight simulator in "Spread Those Wings and Fly", his instructor tells him to bear west 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".


Video Example(s):


"I am NOT! Being dramatic!"

Daffy acts like a drama queen after Bugs tells him that he's being dramatic over Porky eating his fries. This backfires after Bugs drives off without Daffy, after the latter makes a big fuss over walking himself home.

How well does it match the trope?
