12. Foghorn Leghorn
As a kid, probably no one really understood what Foghorn ever spoke as he’s often blithering away any nonsense in a Southern accent. What makes him so likeable is due to the fact that he’s so mischievous and exceedingly clever in setting more creative traps. He’s been in so many hilarious situations like messing with the Barnyard Dog and Henry Chicken Hawk from eating him. He delivers such good puns and jokes which makes him such a well-written and charismatic character.

10. Tweety the Bird
This canary may appear to be cute, innocent, simple-minded, child-like with his long lashes and a high-pitched voice and his act of saying words that are out of his vocabulary but don’t let that fool you as this bird is crafty as hell. While we often see Sylvester the cat attempting to eat Tweety, this canary has indeed caused him a lot of pain. To be honest, we all wished Sylvester really succeeded in eating this damn bird!

With an evil grin displaying his wicked white teeth, it comes as no surprise why this Tasmanian devil happens to be one of the most wildest characters of the entire bunch. He spins so fast that he probably travels faster than the speed of light! Taz will chop anyone who stands in his way as his sole motivation is to eat other animals which is why the other characters fear him. Still, all of us love him because he can’t speak properly, spouts weird noises and makes fart sounds with his tongue! There’s no doubt that Taz remains to be one of the most craziest characters on this show and has gone on to influence other cartoon characters in the following years.

8. Yosemite Sam
Stuttering with a Southern accent, Yosemite Sam is indeed very funny! He’s extremely stubborn, ill-tempered, a liar, a cheat, selfish and impatient but yet we love seeing him lose his temper in the stickiest of situations as he proves to be so hilarious. Yosemite Sam has only main motivation: to shoot Bugs Bunny, his greatest rival and we love how his adventures featuring trying to hunt down Bugs turn to be so entertaining.

7. Marvin the Martian
One of the quietest of all the Warner Bros villains, Marvin is very clever and soft-spoken as he’s downright destructive and legitimately dangerous. With his laser pistol and a nerdy demeanor, it might lead you to believe that he;s gonna succeed in getting his most nefarious of all plans work but yet ends up getting foiled every time which is just fun to watch. Even though Marvin is a diabolical mastermind, there’s something about him which makes him so appealing. No matter how deadly his plans may look, still we can’t take him seriously. Just look at him, he looks so darn cute! He’s indeed a very popular fan favorite among all Looney Tunes followers.

6. Porky the Pig
Porky is a pig with a very happy-go-lucky attitude and a boyish innocence. But still, this pig can loose his cool very easily if annoyed as we get to see how far can he get to his boiling point. What makes him so hilarious and adorable is due to his stuttering habit like spouting out the words “dee-duh-duh”. For example, he replaces words like “What’s going on” to ‘What’s gug-gug-guh…happening”. It’s due to these little traits that make him so adorable which is why he claims the No 6 spot on our list.

5. Sylvester the Cat
Just like Tom’s obsession with capturing and eating Jerry, Sylvester too has a quest for eating Tweety the bird which he never succeeds in doing. You gotta love the fact that he lisps a lot with his catchphrases like “You’re despicable” and “Suffering succotash!” A lot of people will relate with Sylvester’s struggles as he serves as a gentle reminder why sometimes our goals can never get accomplished and will always end up failing every time we have a plan which ultimately backfires. And yet, we are guilty of laughing at his failures!

4. Elmer Fudd
Being the most dim-witted of the entire lot, Elmer Fudd is very gullible and funny at the same time. Known for his famous catchphrases like the one mentioned in the above picture, Fudd has a habit of replacing his R’s with his W’s as a result of which he refers to Bugs Bunny, his mortal enemy as “scwewy wabbit”. Elmer Fudd has one sole passion: to hunt (especially for fun) although he’s a vegetarian. Still, he ends up injuring himself quite seriously and all those around him which is too funny to watch. Elmer Fudd is such a big rival to Bugs as Captain Hook is to Peter Pan and Shredder is to the Ninja Turtles.

3. Daffy Duck
Extremely narcissistic to the point that he’s actually tremendously insecure, Daffy Duck is known to be the biggest loser in the entire TV show. This is due to the fact that he has such a big ego where in his own world he thinks himself to be so wise but in reality, he’s extremely greedy, gets so competitive with Bugs, is so self-centered and has high hopes that he will succeed in his plans but ends up failing miserably. We can all relate to Daffy as we want him to succeed in his difficulties but can’t admit that we ourselves can sometimes not be successful. Still, Daffy has proven to be very entertaining and funny indeed.

2. Road Runner and Will E Coyote
The reason why these two have been put together as not only they have an entire show devoted to them, these two are just made for each other as they truly are the embodiment of the word “chase”. In every episode, we’re made to see Will E Coyote in his quest to capture Road Runner and eat him which almost never happens. We always have felt a little sympathetic towards the coyote as he devotes his entire life to capture the Road Runner who with his motor car sounds and his “beep-beep!” proves to be too fast for the coyote. Doesn’t the Road Runner remind you of that one annoying young sibling whose sole purpose is to annoy the crap out of the older siblings? No matter what creative lengths the coyote goes to setting booby traps for the Road Runner, it always ends up backfiring on him. That iconic scene where in most cases, the look of despair tells on his face when he realizes he’s no longer on the edge of the cliff will always be etched in our memories. No matter how repetitive the show might get, we simply love watching these two!

1. Bugs Bunny
Bugs Bunny is undoubtedly the highlight of the entire show. He boasts of such a star power and a universal appeal that he makes Disney’s Mickey Mouse look even less significant. Known for his popular catchphrases like “What’s up Doc?” and his habit of chewing carrots, Bugs is involved in almost all the episodes of Looney Tunes i.e, that rabbit’s everywhere like in space, oceans, forests etc. Bugs has plenty of enemies like Fudd, Sam, Porky, Martian but yet ends up winning every damn time. Yes Bugs can be a mean old bully at times but still what makes him so appealing is due to the fact he oozes that winning personality, has that intelligence and thinks highly of himself which is why he outsmarting all his foes. Which is why, Bugs makes the top of the list.
