Western Animation / Wabbit: A Looney Tunes Production

Go To

Goin' down the rabbit hole
Where we're goin' no one knows
Obstacles 'round every bend!
Let's see where the tunnel ends!

Wabbit: A Looney Tunes Production (or simply Wabbit, and called Bugs! in some markets), renamed as New Looney Tunes beginning in its second season, is a Warner Bros. Animation series starring Bugs Bunny and other Looney Tunes characters.

The show features a Sketch Comedy format of various segmented shorts, this time adding brand-new looney friends and enemies to the established ones, such as Bigfoot and Squeaks the Squirrel. Some of the established Tunes are altered in some way, such as Wile E. Coyote, who adopted his arrogant "super genius" persona (from cartoons such as Operation: Rabbit and Rabbit's Feat where he spoke).

Wabbit was created in response to the sitcom nature of its predecessor, The Looney Tunes Show, not living up to the reaction WB had expected for it in-spite of the show having performed well initially. After the more experimental nature of recent Looney Tunes television shows, and in response to The Looney Tunes Show, it was promised that this series would see the characters return to their original, wacky selves.

Even though it was slated for a premiere on Boomerang on October 5, 2015, it aired on Cartoon Network first as a sneak preview starting September 21, 2015. Ironically, Wabbit was originally considered for Cartoon Network.

It's original name came from Elmer Fudd's famous title for Bugs' species under his speech impediment. Ironically, Elmer did not appear when the series first aired but, over the course of the show's first 52-episode season, he note  and other classic Looney Tunes characters started popping up. As a result, the series was retooled in its second season as New Looney Tunes, now featuring segments starring the other lovable characters.

In January 2018, producer Matt Craig announced on Facebook that the show would not be renewed for a fourth season as they had already produced an excess of episodes due to the studio rushing them into production after the immediate success of the show on Boomerang's international channels, meaning that the American airings had many unaired episodes. Instead, Warner Bros. Animation announced production of a creator and cartoonist-driven revival simply titled Looney Tunes Cartoons.

Wabbit pwovides exampews of:

  • Aborted Arc: "Misjudgment Day" ends up the reveal that Michigan J. Frog, in the future, sent the robot back in time to eliminate Bugs. For what seems to be the set up for a recurring plotline, it never comes back.
  • Accidental Art: In "Point Duck Percent," Porky is a groundskeeper slated to be fired if his employer fails to win a neighborhood beautification award. After Daffy messes up the place despite his best efforts, Porky's "avant-garde" lawn display not only wins the prize but nets him a better job offer elsewhere.
  • Accidental Public Confession: Foghorn admits to his status as a Snake Oil Salesman in "For the Love of Fraud," throwing in some insults to the intelligence of the people he swindled...who are all listening in.
  • The Ace: After a stint as a cynic, Bugs is back to his better-known Karmic Trickster persona, though a little more fallible than before (especially in the shorts where he's paired with Porky Pig).
  • Adults Are More Anthropomorphic: The young brown rabbit in "Snow Wabbit" has haunches like a rabbit and stands like a rabbit, whereas Bugs has thin thighs and stands straight like a human.
  • Affably Evil: The Hazmats are constantly trying to capture and dissect Bigfoot, but otherwise act like normal office workers.
  • All Animals Are Dogs: The Griffin in "Sir Littlechin: Griffin Hunter" acts very much like a dog, panting like one and licking Bugs and Squeaks' faces, despite being a mixture between a bird and a lion.
  • All Just a Dream: The ending to "Dust Bugsters." Or Was It a Dream?
    • "Thirst Things First."
    • "Greenhouse Gasbag" also has this for an ending.
  • all lowercase letters: The original title was written like this in the logo.
  • Animated Anthology: Showcases several shorts per episode starring different characters.
  • Animation Bump: The episodes farmed out to Snipple Animation are more fluid, compared to those done at Rough Draft Korea and Yearim Productions. However, the Snipple-animated episodes tend to get puppet-like oftentimes.
  • Art Evolution:
    • Squeaks the Squirrel was redesigned from his original thicker body look to a skinner, Screwball Squirrel-esque design. The showrunners felt this would give the character a more fitting look within the Looney Tunes universe.
    • Likewise, Bugs himself lost some fur details, gained a skinnier facial design, and a lighter gray color.
  • Artifact Title: The fact that Elmer Fudd rarely appeared during the "Wabbit" era of the show makes the title this.
  • Artistic License – Music: In one episode, Bugs is shown with a French horn. Not only is it much smaller than a real one, but he holds it up in the air like a trumpet rather than at an angle. He doesn't even keep his hand over the keys!
  • Balloon Belly: In "Dust Bugster" Bugs gets one after a night of watching TV and pigging out. It disappears the second he gets off the couch.
  • Banana Peel: Daffy slips on multiple ones at one point in "Duck of the Flies".
  • Black Comedy: After a dejected Bugs is declared "not a real rabbit" by a group of talking but more-realistic rabbits, he complains to a traveller looking for rabbits about his problems that doesn't make him a "real rabbit", and tells her where to find the real ones while walking off. He doesn't notice that said traveller was obviously a chef, who gleefully brandishes cooking tools to make dishes containing rabbit. (It's softened by The Stinger, which shows that the rabbits were protected by a security system Bugs had installed in the burrow earlier.)
  • Bond One-Liner: Constant, particularly from Bugs and Daffy, who at one point stops the cartoon from ending because he just came up with a better one.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: "One Carroter in Search of an Artist" ends with Daffy declaring "Ain't I a stinker?" in a long-delayed Ironic Echo of "Duck Amuck."
  • Bowdlerise: Yosemite Sam's six shooters get replaced with comical blunderbusses, which eventually get recolored to a more wooden, toy-like appearance and are seen much less often in later episodes
  • Bratty Food Demand: In one episode, Bugs babysits a boy who demands mac and cheese. But every time Bugs makes it, the boy claims it wasn't made correctly, forcing Bugs to make it again. By the time it's done "properly", it's been an hour and the boy isn't hungry anymore.
  • The Bus Came Back:
    • Gabby Goat, an obscure Looney Tunes bit player who hasn't been seen since 1937, returns for the episode "Gettin' Your Goat".
    • Millicent, the overweight yellow rabbit who last appeared in Bugs Bunny's Thanksgiving Diet in 1979, stars in the episode "The Magnificent Millicent".
  • The Cameo: Redesigned versions of Ham and Ex the pups, two of the earliest Looney Tunes characters, make a brief cameo appearance in the ending of the episode "Splashwater Bugs".
  • Canon Foreigner: Squeaks the Squirrel, Bigfoot, Dr. Clovenhoof and any of the newly-created antagonists.
  • Call-Back: The running gag involving Keith Richards from "The Grim Rabbit" makes a return in "Big Troubles".
    • One short involved Bugs singing a parody of "My Gal is a High Board Stepper" as a reference to him singing the original song in the 1949 short "Long-Haired Hare".
    • The last shot of the series shows the original title of the series wabbit crossed off referring to the series original title before its retool with a new name in the 2nd and 3rd season.
  • Casting Gag: On Loonatics Unleashed, Candi Milo (who voiced Zadavia) also voiced Grannicus, Granny's descendant. In this show, she voices Granny herself.
  • Catlike Dragons: The griffin in "Sir Littlechin, Griffin Hunter" is a variation.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Most of the characters of The Looney Tunes Show either vanished or got Demoted to Extra, with Wile E. Coyote, Yosemite Sam and Bugs himself being the only regulars.
    • Averted in Season 2 when the show was revamped into New Looney Tunes, where many of the other classic Looney Tunes regulars started to take centre stage again.
    • Jack, one of the newly-created antagonists—A "jack of all trades but a master of none" who does various work. Word of God says that this character was dropped after only two appearances because his personality traits (including his screaming) were deemed too similar to Yosemite Sam.
    • The Grim Rabbit, another of the new recurring antagonists created during the Wabbit era disappeared completely after the show revamp in New Looney Tunes.
  • Connected All Along: Two youthful Spoiled Brat antagonists, Pampreen from "Carrot Before the Horse" and Paul from "Best Bugs," appear together in "Point Duck Percent," where they're revealed to be siblings. Their final appearance in "#1 Grandpa" further reveals that they're the grandchildren of Leslie P. Lilylegs.
  • "Could Have Avoided This!" Plot:
    • "'Tis the Seasoning" has a Jingle All the Way-type plot in which Bugs and Yosemite Sam duke it out over the season's hottest toy, with only one left in stock. Just as Bugs seizes the victory, cue a truckload of the same item coming in.
    • In "A Duck in the Penthouse," Porky, a hotel employee, tries to keep Daffy from wreaking havoc in the building's most expensive penthouse before a highly esteemed guest shows up. The guest is Daffy, and he loves what he's done with the place.
  • Courtroom Episode: "Porker in the Court" focuses on Porky going to court. Daffy is his lawyer. Hilarity Ensues, of course.
  • Crocodile Tears: In his first appearance here, Daffy fake cries to manipulate Porky.
  • Dark Horse Victory:
    • Squeaks' poker buddy C.E. Squirrel running against Bugs and Squint Eastwood in "Bugs for Mayor."
    • Squeaks racing against Bugs and Cecil Turtle in "Tour de Bugs."
    • In "Lewis and Pork," Daffy and Porky as Lewis and Clark lose their pack mule halfway through the trip. The mule, "Pacifico," winds up discovering the West Coast before they do, causing the Pacific Ocean to be named in his honor.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Squeak Show" stars Squeaks and Bigfoot, with Bugs not appearing until the end.
  • Denser and Wackier: Bugs leaves the down-to-earth sitcom territory for returning to slapstick.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: A surprising tendency for most of the original foes to eventually result in after getting their comeuppance from Bugs' antics. Though, not always.
  • Deranged Animation: The existing characters are given really strange redesigns that make the character designs in The Looney Tunes Show look like their normal forms; Yosemite Sam and Wile E. Coyote look little like their classic designs and Foghorn Leghorn's head is oddly-designed. Even Bugs wasn't immune that much! However, Porky and Daffy were intentionally designed to resemble how they originally first appeared in the 1930s (most notably Porky being quite fat.)
  • Driven to Madness: Many of the Porky Pig / Daffy Duck shorts end with Porky losing his mind because of Daffy's antics.
  • Duck Season, Rabbit Season: In "Home a Clone," a clone of Bugs tries this on him as the two are arguing over a video game controller, to which Bugs replies that he knows "that tired, played-out bit."
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: The title itself is an example of this.
  • End-of-Series Awareness: Since the 3rd season is considered the last, the show ends with a book closing with both the original title which is crossed off and the new title on its cover along with "That's all, folks".
  • Enraged by Idiocy: You'd be frustrated too if your henchmen were Pete and Claude.
  • Escalating War: "Office Rocker" reveals that Bugs and the Tasmanian Devil have a yearly "Prank Week" which Bugs follows up on even though Taz now has an office job. Taz tries to resist, but it doesn't take long for him to start retaliating.
  • Expository Theme Tune: "Going down the rabbit hole..."
  • Fake Muscles: In "Bugs of Steel," Rock Hardcase's big buff body turns out to just be an inflatable body suit, and that he's really a small weakling.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Given the choice between two bulls named "Daisy" and "Hannibull Lecter," Sam naturally picks the former to ride. Guess who's bigger.
    Bugs: You chose poorly.
  • The Fool: While Bugs often outsmarts his opponents, he gets by just as often on fantastic bouts of luck or the villains' convenient buffoonery.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: In "Big Troubles" when Bugs is spraying the whole planet with "Grow Fast-Ums" to make everything sized correctly relative to the insects Squeaks had sprayed previously, he takes a moment to aim the bottle at the camera.
  • Funny Background Event: In "Superscooter 3000," Bugs and Squeaks have a Seinfeldian Conversation about the difference between ice cream and gelato, oblivious to Claudette and the Hazmats having an epic battle behind them.
  • Furry Confusion: One segment is about Bugs being rejected by a warren of rabbits who are less anthropomorphic because he looks and acts nothing like them, with Bugs trying to prove himself to them.
  • Genre Throwback: Wabbit returns to the older format of showcasing several short cartoons per episode, like what most of the 1970s–1980s compilation editions were made when the shorts were rerun in TV syndication packages.
    • This could also apply to how Porky Pig and Daffy Duck have been redesigned to resemble their original versions from the 1930s.
  • Glove Slap: Becomes an Overly-Long Gag in "Knight and Duck" when Daffy preempts Sir Littlechin by taking his glove and hitting him with it before he can say the word "duel." All of Littlechin's attempts to explain how the interaction was supposed to go down just get him more slapped. The gag gets called back by Bugs in "Then Things Got Weird."
  • Gross-Up Close-Up: Happens in "It's Snout or Never," when Porky Pig first encounters Witch Hazel; he first sees her through his camera's viewfinder, and we see what he sees: Witch Hazel's highly-detailed eye on green warty skin, painted in great detail.
  • Hiccup Hijinks: The episode "Hiccups And Downs" has Bugs get hiccups when he drinks his lemonade too fast. Porky does all he can to cure him, even sending him to Witch Hazel and a scary castle, but no luck. Porky then pulls a trick by saying he'll move in with him and stop at nothing to cure him, which scares Bugs into losing them. We then cut to a screen shot of both of them saying how they respect each other even if they don't want to live with each other, and then they both hiccup , ending the episode.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Sir Littlechin is given to these.
    Sir Littlechin: (fighting a bear) Up for a little bear-knuckle boxing, are we? (whap) Oh no, I can hardly bear it! (whap) It's just an ursa minor scratch! (whap) Things are getting grizzly! (whap) Is that koala you got?
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: Bugs' response to an antagonist throwing Squeaks is that no one but him is allowed to treat his friends that way.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Even by Looney Tunes standards, Leslie P.Lilylegs and Shameless O'Scanty are outright pathetic.
  • Inside a Computer System: In "Computer Bugs," Bugs fights a sapient virus inhabiting his desktop.
  • Interspecies Romance:
    • The Grim Rabbit is married to a normal human woman.
    • "Porky and Thes" has King Thes, a lion, falling in love with Petunia Pig. At the end of the episode, it's revealed that she hooked up with a human - specifically, Elmer Fudd.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Though Cal in "For the Love of Acorns" was being a jerk, Bugs and Squeaks were trespassing on the field, vandalizing property and interrupting a game.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: Bugs usually doesn't come out on top in the shorts where he co-stars with Porky Pig or Bigfoot.
    • "One Carroter in Search of an Artist" ends with Daffy Duck revealed to be the unseen animator torturing Bugs, in reference to their reversed roles in Duck Amuck.
  • Knocking the Knockoff: The episode "One Carroter In Search Of An Artist" has Bugs Bunny at the mercy of a devilish animator, similar to the classic Looney Tunes cartoon "Rabbit Rampage." At one point, the animator redraws Bugs Bunny as his 2008 iteration, Ace Bunny from Loonatics Unleashed, which was widely decried by Looney Tunes fans.
    Bugs Bunny: Now you're just messin' with me.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: A staple of Bugs Bunny cartoons but it is exceptionally obvious here as anyone who really pushes Bugs too far finds out the consequences of mixing Beware the Nice Ones with Karmic Trickster.
  • Less Embarrassing Term: Bugs' bag is a satchel, not a purse (though he himself is inconsistent on this point).
  • Lethally Stupid: Bigfoot causes so much trouble for Bugs, you can't help but wonder why Bugs even bothers to help him.
  • Logic Bomb: In "Manner Maid," Bugs pulls this on a robot groundskeeper at a public park with a confusing explanation of the difference between "loitering" and "lingering."
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Paul Perdy, introduced in "Best Bugs."
  • Meat-O-Vision:
    • In "Appropriate Technology," a hungry Wile E. trapped in his Smart House with Bugs begins imagining him as a cheeseburger.
    • At one point in "Duck of the Flies", Daffy sees Porky as a literal Large Ham.
  • Mistaken for Romance: Throughout "Bugsfoot," the Hazmats think Bugs Bunny is Bigfoot's girlfriend, much to the former's displeasure.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Usually whenever an episode's main villain has The Dragon (or pet usually) that gets either insulted or abused throughout the episode or gets blamed during the Big Bad's Villainous Breakdown, then expect for them to turn against the Big Bad and become friends with Bugs.
  • Monstrous Germs: In the episode "Computer Bugs", a computer virus that infects Bugs' computer looks like an orange Cephalothorax with Evil Eyebrows and four antennae. It brags and laughs as it destroys the software on the computer.
  • Musical Episode: "Porky and Thes" is told almost entirely in song (the only parts that aren't are Elmer's narration).
  • Mythology Gag: There are many examples of this in some form or another. The entire premise of "One Carroter in Search of an Artist" is an updated version of the classic "Rabbit Rampage." At one point, the artist turns Bugs into his form from "Hare-Um Scare-Um", then into Ace Bunny from Loonatics Unleashed.
  • New Season, New Name: Wabbit was later retooled into New Looney Tunes, which emphasizes the show's newer direction to expand beyond the central focus of Bugs to other Looney Tunes characters.
  • Non Sequitur, *Thud*: Sir Littlechin has several.
    "I love a gingham summer dress, but the spaghetti straps make me look fat."
    "Sometimes Mommy makes me cinnamon toast before night-night!"
  • No Off Button: In one episode, Wily Coyote invented a centrifugal force machine to get rid of the smell of skunk. Unfortunately for him, in keeping with his arrogant oversight, once he had Bugs turn the machine on he realized he didn’t give it an off switch. It only got worse when female skunks then climbed into the machine and overloaded it.
  • Not Even Bothering with an Excuse: In "Daffy the Stowaway," Daffy, asked for his boat ticket, grabs a piece of paper and turns around to start scribbling on it.
    Daffy: Hold on, I'm just fabricating a fake ticket.
  • No, You: In "Porky's Duck-livery Service", when Porky tells Daffy to get back in his box, he retorts via telling him no and to get back in the box.
  • Oh, No... Not Again!: Porky has this reaction in "Hoggin' the Road" when he thinks he hit Daffy with his RV.
  • Pass the Popcorn: In "Bigs Bunny," the Barbarian's polar bear Krakos contentedly munches popcorn as he watches the Barbarian push Bugs around.
  • Patchwork Map: Any short focusing on Bugs and Wile E Coyote as neighbors will have Bugs living in a lush forest and Wile E living in an arid desert, and the cutoff between those two climates being their property line.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: To trick Porky into letting him out of a box, Daffy gives him wide and tearful eyes.
  • Replaced the Theme Tune / Rearrange the Song: For some reason, starting from the shorts "Bugsfoot" and "Grim on Vacation", the theme tune changed from its original TaleSpin-esque jazz style tune delivery and rhythm to a quick, whizzing country music-style variant (something akin to Wander over Yonder 's theme tune). The lyrics are still the same, however. There's also a Ramones-esque rock variation.
    • Starting from episode 26 "Bugs Over Par" and "Fast Feud", the theme was replaced again with a rock version of the same tune.
    • Season Two's revamp does it again, this time replacing the original theme altogether with an arrangement of the original Looney Tunes theme, "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down".
  • Revisiting the Roots: Gradually the show eventually does this for the Looney Tunes franchise itself, especially when they begin to add more characters beside Bugs. Daffy Duck's and Tweety's personalities are revised to their original screwball personas, Porky resembling his original overweight appearance from the thirties, Granny's voice after getting recast with Candi Milo following Foray's death resembles the very first voice for the character Bea Benaderet before Foray was cast and finally the return after 80 years of Gabby Goat, Porky's original sidekick before Daffy came along.
  • Rogues' Gallery Transplant: It happens quite often when the show was revamped in season two:
    • The Hazmats consistently menace Bigfoot , which brings them into conflict with Bugs. After the retool , they still occasionally encounter Bugs , but they're more likely to encounter Pepe and Claudette.
    • "Fowl Me Once" and "Fowl Me Twice" saw the Tasmanian Devil (Taz) trying to steal the chickens from Foghorn Leghorn's chicken farm instead of chasing Bugs as usual.
    • Daffy is a notable example because due to being one of the most recurring characters from this period he faced much of the new Bugs Bunny's Rogues Gallery introduced in season 1 (with the only exceptions being The Barbarian,Slugsworthy and those who suffered from Chuck Cunningham Syndrome).
  • Running Gag: Starting with "Hoarder Up" , whenever a statue or something resembling former president Rutherford B. Hayes appears the characters tend to say "Mr. President" and salute him.
  • Scooby-Dooby Doors: Occurs in "King Nutinikommen" as Daffy, Porky and Nutinikommen are being chased by a giant boulder.
  • The Scottish Trope: "The Breezehammer". Saying this causes wind to blow dramatically and an epic rock solo to play.
  • Self-Harm: Played for Laughs in "Amaduckus" when Daffy intentionally puts a violent badger in his clothes, which clearly wasn't suicidal.
  • Shout-Out: "Dust Bugster" has impressions of both BILLY MAYS and Michael Jackson.
    • Happy Hartle's Hamburger Hut, the fast food restaurant in "Fast Feud", and its manager are named after the show's producer Gary Hartle.
    • "Amusement Pork" has Bugs encountering run-down animatronics from numerous extinct Disney Theme Parks rides such as the Sea Serpent and Mermaid from the "Submarine Voyage", a Tiki Room Bird, animals from "America Sings" and a Magic Skyway Caveman.
    • In "Lucky Duck," Shameless O'Scanty gets covered in feathers and takes up Donald Duck's famous pose of winding his fists.
  • Shown Their Work: The fluffle of rabbits from "Bugs Bunny?" have slit-shaped noses and padless paws like real rabbits, as a stark contrast to Bugs. They also sleep with their eyes open, and the leader uses the term "warren" for their burrow.
  • Sketch Comedy: In the vein of the 1970's–1980's compilation shows.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Wile E. is back to his "Wile E. Coyote, Super-Genius" characterization.
  • Smart House: In "Appropriate Technology," Wile E. converts his house into one of these, only to end up trapped inside with Bugs after a power failure.
  • Spoiled Brat: Pampreen and Paul Perdy, the grandchildren of Leslie P. Lilylegs.
  • Soul-Crushing Desk Job: Held by the Tasmanian Devil of all people.
  • Staggered Zoom: Done on Yosemite Sam's damaged smartphone in "Hareplane Mode."
  • Stealth Pun: A few episodes feature a troop of young scouts, one of whom is actually a (bear) cub. Their troop leader is an eagle, which is pointed out (he's only a Tenderfoot).
  • Stock Sound Effects: Unusually, instead of Treg Brown's classic Warner Bros. sound effects, the show makes very heavy use of the Hanna-Barbera sound effects, sort of similar to the late '60s Looney Tunes shorts.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Near the end of "Greenhouse Gasbag", Foghorn wastes so much oxygen that the planet Earth explodes. Turns out it was All Just a Dream, though.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Several shorts team Sylvester up with Claude Cat and Pete Puma. Claude can be dim at times, while Pete is hopelessly incompetent, so Sylvester is often frustrated with (and injured by) their bungling.
  • "Take That!" Kiss: In "Wahder, Wahder, Everywhere", Daffy kisses Elmer to troll him.
  • Threatening Shark: One appears in "Duck of the Flies" and tries to eat Daffy.
  • Tricked into Signing: Bugs tricks Vladimir Angelo Chafong Reginald McMurthy into signing a trade contact by pretending to be a tourist and make him autograph several things without him noticing. This makes it legal for Vladimir to join the Alaskan Halibuts.
  • Two Shorts: An interesting variation. When the shorts are aired on television, they're two standalone five minute long shorts (according to production order) compiled together to fit an 11-minute time slot (which the intro acknowledges).
  • The Unintelligible: Squeaks, whom only makes chittering and squeaking noises. He communicates with gestures and pantomime.
  • Unwanted Assistance: Bugs sees Porky's behavior in this light and blames his "help" for everything that goes wrong when they interact. In actuality, Porky's guidance is generally solid and only fails thanks to Bugs' perpetual impatience with the Boring, but Practical approach.
  • Villain Ball: In "The Spy Who Bugged Me" when her and Bugs' bags accidentally get switched, Claudette insists on using sneaky tactics to steal her bag back, when she could just tell Bugs about the mix-up so they can switch the bags back.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Bugs and Squeaks. The two routinely act like jerks towards each other, but whenever trouble rears its ugly head, they are quick to act together to solve the problem. In fact, Bugs is this with just about all his friends.
  • Wham Episode: "Misjudgement Day" ends with a Sequel Hook that has whoever sent a robot that was programmed to see through his tricks from the future to destroy Bugs vowing that this is just the beginning with said mysterious character being Michigan J. Frog.
  • Worthless Yellow Rocks:
    • In "Sir Littlechin and the Kraken," Bugs, diving for clams, is disappointed when his trap instead yields "another batch of gold doubloons and diamonds."
    • In "For the Love of Fraud," a silver miner complains that he's spent almost a decade digging for silver and turned up nothing but yellow rocks. Subverted; the "miner" is Bugs in disguise and the rocks really are worthless, having been painted with yellow paint.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: In "Hoggin' the Road," Daffy pretends to have been hit by Porky's RV in order to get inside.
  • Yet Another Christmas Carol: "The Legend of Burrito Monday".
  • You Don't Look Like You: Familiar folks like Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn and Wile E. Coyote have been given some drastic redesigns.
    • Porky Pig and Daffy Duck have been redesigned to look like their earliest incarnations from when they debuted in the 1930s.

Wabbit's Remixed S1 Themes

Wabbit (later renamed New Looney Tunes) had three different versions of the same theme in Season One alone. Though the lyrics are the same, the music ranges in different genres like jazz and country.
