Looney Tunes Turns 85 Years Old

What’s up doc? I’ll tell you what the hell is up, this week marks the 85th anniversary of Looney Tunes! The American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies.[1] Originally named after Walt Disney’s then-concurrent musical series Silly Symphonies, Looney Tunes initially showcased Warner-owned musical compositions through the adventures of cartoon characters such as Bosko and Buddy. Soon after came more well known and loved characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the Cat, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin the Martian, Pepé Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Wile E.

The cartoon is described by Matt Crowley (Splitsider.com) as: In many ways, this short resembles a typical Elmer Fudd hunting rabbit scenario, but where Fudd’s stupidity is generic, the African American hunter’s is specifically racial. Obsessed with playing craps, the hunter loses the very clothes on his back to Bugs, leaving him with only a leaf covering his crotch. Bugs pulls that off too during the iris out — taking the hunter’s last shred of dignity with him. Crowley has actually written a great piece at Splitsider (Click here to check it out) which goes more in depth about Looney Toons racist past. As for me, I’m going to fight the good …
