My favorite part of the cartoon is when the Sheriff is singing "London Bridges" in a dazed, slurry voice and he's staggering around, ready to fall over. In the space of about two seconds, Bugs: (1) races from the scene at top speed; (2) comes back with a huge cast iron oven in tow; (3) mixes the ingredients of a pie on a kitchen table and pours the mixture into a pie tin; (4) pops the pie tin into the oven; (5) taps his feet waiting for it to bake; (6) pulls the hot pie out of the oven, and then (7) slips the pie under the Sheriff's face just before he hits the ground.
At this point: that's when the Sheriff, starts to sing, "London Bridges".
"Ngahhhhhhhhh, don't you worry, never fear, Robin Hood will soon be here."

Let's not forget that giant orange haired beastie Gossamer in all of this. I love the one, with Bugs and Gossamer in Frankenstein's castle and Bugs remarks (hope I get this quote right):
"Such an innnnnnnnnnnnnteresting monster deserves an innnnnnnnnnnnnteresting hairdo."
and then promptly blows up Gossamer.
Love, love, love this furball of a monster...although I never knew it had a name. To me he was always the Hairy Monster. I always thought it fun that for no apparent reason it wore sneakers and the sound of it crying always made me giggle.
Gossamer squashed his armor-clad self into a tin of Canned Monster...complete with label.

I loved Gossamer.
My favorite Looney Tunes ever is probably that one where Daffy was Robin Hood and Porky was the Friar. It never fails to crack me up when Daffy is trying to prove he's the real Robin Hood by swinging down to get the Sheriff's tax money and all he hits is trees.
"Yoinks, and AWAY!" *Thud*
By the end of it, he's can hardly sat that. Eventually he goes back and cuts down all the trees, only to slam into a big, fuckin' rock.

The wicked witch: "Sharp enough to split a hare. A HARE!"
Gossamer: "No, that'll never stay. We'll just have to have a permanamanamanent."
The one with the vampire: "Abraca-pocus!"
The vulture: "My momma done tol' me... bring home something for dinner..."
And of course, the Rabbit of Seville. Which I have completely committed to memory. Why yes, I am a freak.

Complete with the adding machine. I love that one so much. Maybe because it was an antidote to the Spike/Tom/Jerry cartoons.
An obscure cartoon I also like is the one where the two mice gorge themselves on so much cheese that they decide to kill themselves. They keep trying to jump into the cat's mouth, which eventually confuses him so much that he tries to kill himself via the neighbor's dog. "It don't add up!"
I love conniving Daffy as well. The woo-hoo Daffy was one I really wanted Elmer or Porky to shoot.
My favorite cartoons both involve the breaking of character - the one with Bugs-as-animator messing with Daffy and the one with Elmer Fudd wanting out of his contract.

Sylvester the Cat had the most range and was different depending on who directed him. Friz Freleng paired him with Tweety, Chuck Jones had him be Porky's pet and never had him talk, and Bob McKimson used him with his son, Sylvester Jr. trying to catch the baby kangaroo that he thought was a giant mouse. I always liked Slyvester Jr. saying "Oh father!"

And my kids got VERY tired of me slobbering all over them when I'd pretend to be exasperated and exclaim "I'm the father of a breakfast!!"

Oh, and the hat one, where different hats fly on to Elmer and Bugs.
I also have to plug Chuck Jones's autobiography, Chuck Amuck. It's a great read!

The skunk-kitty has a name? I thought I was rather a geeky WB fangirl, but I never knew that. "Flairt."
Babette the cat

Babette was one of the 2 cats to appear in A Tale of Two Kitties (and I believe 1 or 2 others), along with Catsello, and that toom also introduced us to Tweety.
And I have to share my love for a great toon not mentioned yet: The Great Piggy Bank Robbery, easily one of my favorite cartoons ever. It gave us Duck Twacey, all of the one-shot "villains" like Neon Noodle and Eraserhead (years before the David Lynch movie!), and my favorite scene is when Duck Twacey finds that his piggy bank is missing and calls himself mainly because of the great animation in this scene. I've seen the shots frame-by-frame for this one scene alone and just the single drawings make me laugh.

cjl: Totally agree, that it is classic Bugs. The subtlety of Bugs tapping his foot, has warped my sense of humour.
KatrinaD: That is Mrs. fitzwits, favourite episode. I love the part where he wants to crush him with that cement block, and Bugs keeps saying, "Abraca-pocus", and he turns into a bat. Just like the sheriff in the, "Rabbit Hood" episode(thanks again nothing new), he keeps trying.
You know as a kid; I never got Foghorn Leghorn. As an adult though: he cracks me up everytime. I don't know if it's because of his, bombastic personality - but he kills me. The episode, where he thinks he's the father of the little ostrich - is one of my favourites. When he said to the dog, " You have insulted my family honour sir, and I demand satisfaction". He then proceeds to whack the dog, with his base-ball glove. Comedy gold.
I must be twisted, because I like another episode where Bugs does that too. It's when Emmie(Granny), inherited a million dollars. Yosemite Sam comes a courting, and Bugs feels he must do a scout's honour. At one point Yosemite Sam says, "How would you like to taste, the salt of leather?"(gives Bugs a whack). Bugs then says, " You have insulted the Earl of Marquis"(i think), drops brick in glove, and a bigger whack. LOL.
This thread brings back, good memories, and good laughs.

Too much Speedy for my taste, but the Tashlin disc is absolutely essential!
Plus, Rabbit Hood (see p. 3 of this thread) and 8 Ball Bunny ("Ooooooooooh, I'm dyyyyyyyyyyyyin'!") are two of my all-time favorite Bugs cartoons.

Didn't he, though?
AimingforYoko: Foghorn Leghorn rocked. The Rube Goldberg-like contraptions he set up for the dog were gold.
"This is gonna cause moah confusion than a mouse in a buh-lesque show."
"Luckily I always keep my feathahs numba'd for just such an emuh-gency."
Don't remember him ever taking a wrong toin at Albuquoique, though.

Bugs: And who might YOU be?
Hillbilly: Well, I might be Teddy Roosevelt, but I ain't!
There's one line from (can't remember title) the one where the mad scientist wants to switch Bugs' brain with a chicken's brain...Bugs is running from the scientist and ducks into a closet which happens to contain a skeleton. Bugs walks out of the closet and yells (How do you spell this???) DUUUUUUYYYYYY-DUUUUUUUUUYYYYY-DUUUUUUUUYYYYY-DUUUUUUUUYYYY!!!
Also, in the one where Bugs gets chosen to be "bwasted" by Elmer Fudd on "The Sportsmen's Hour" and ducks into Liberace's studio...
"Oh, George...That's my brother, George! Here, George...Take this candelabra to moth-er!
"I did that because I always wanted my program to go over with a bang! Tee-hee-hee!"

Heck, I forget the rest, but I know it was great.
I also liked the construction-site guy who was trying to wipe out Bugs' rabbit hole in order to finish his building project; at one point he ends up falling from a great height courtesy of Bugs, and struggles to his feet to look directly into the camera and say "I'm feelin'... mighty low..." as he collapses back to the ground.
I use both these phrases regularly.

"My compliments captain, for keeping your ship so 'spic and span'!" And then Sam stands proudly smiling and holding the mop until he realizes he's been fooled!
