    Some history, from Wiki:

    "Looney Tunes is a Warner Brothers animated cartoon series which ran in many movie theatres from 1930 to 1969. It preceded the Merrie Melodies series, and both are Warner Bros. Animation's first animated theatrical series and the second longest continuous animated series in any medium.[citation needed] The regular Warner Bros. animation cast also became known as the "Looney Tunes" (often misspelled, intentionally or not, as "Looney Toons").

    The name Looney Tunes is a variation on Silly Symphonies, the name of Walt Disney's concurrent series of music-based cartoon shorts."

    Daffy is pure anarchy. Bugs is the hipster. And always funny.

    I always enjoyed Marvin the Martian, especially the cartoon with the dehydrated alien bird things. I believe Marvin wanted to destroy Earth because it was blocking his view, and Bugs attempted to stop him.

    Also that mad scientist one with the giant hairy thing chasing Bugs.

    As far as I know, the Golden Collection is 100% uncensored, although some of the shorts are of the "Blue Ribbon" variety, meaning that the opening and closing titles have been altered from the original version (Most of the time, it makes no difference).

    Go out right now and buy as many volumes as you can afford. It'll be the best money that you've ever spent, guaranteed! :D

    Duck Dodger in the 24th century and a half is my favorite.

    I have the first 3 boxes and they don't seem to be edited. Same old violent cartoons :cool:

    The one with the neon "Evil Scientist" sign above the castle? And the said Evil Scientist looks and talks like Peter Lorre?

    Correct! I remember that particular segment from the Bugs Bunny: Superstar documentary that I absolutely worshiped when I was a kid... it was narrated by Orson Welles if I remember correctly. I wouldn't mind watching it again to be quite honest...

    Ask and ye shall receive, though my memory wasn't quite right on re the scientist--it's not Peter Lorre--[link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKY-opT6yyo]Water, Water, Every Hare[/link]

    Yes, that was a good one. "Water, Water Every Hare" starts a bit slowly, but that manicurist bit is hysterical.

    Yeah, especially the part where he puts dynamite in the monster's hair.

    My favourite character is Wile E. Coyote. I always feel sorry for him because he always ends up at the wrong end of his experiments... :p

    I love the Wile E. Coyote v. Bugs Bunny ones, where Wile E. has a posh Brit accent and towering self-esteem. ("I'm such a genius!)

    Acme products have a 100% success rate. Do not believe the anti-Acme propaganda pieces involving that stupid coyote.

    LOL! That was funny. The Coyte may have towering self-esteem, but Daffy Duck has an ego the size of a planet.

    It's so weird, Wile E. Coyote speaking... :p I like him better when he's mute, communicating only through facial expressions.

    W.E. Coyote is my favorite and I believe, if I remember correctly, that his introductory vinginette where Bugs is his quarry is his only speaking role, although I could be wrong. Also, try to find the one where Bugs is launched like a missile into WW2 Germany and lands onto a meticulous and very unnerving animation of Hitler giving his Triumph Of The Will speech ( an actual verse of the speech is being vocalized ). These cartoons were obviously never meant for even young teens, never mind the millions of five year olds like myself who were plopped in front of them on Saturday mornings in the 1970's.

    I *love* the talking Wile E...when he tells the female coyote "You're so lucky!" it's hilarious; and Bugs' ultra-dry reaction to his ego is very funny.
