Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|In "Pizzicato Pussycat", a cat becomes a famous concert pianist thanks to the hidden talents of a mouse who hides in the Grand piano playing the real music. At a big concert, however, the cat is exposed as a fraud, when something happens to the mouse. What happens?||Looney Tunes Classics
The mouse's glasses break and he can't read the music. The Joneses hear music coming from another room and when they arrive they see their cat playing the piano. In reality a mouse in exchange for his life is hiding in the piano and letting the cat take the credit. The married couple see money written all over this and show their talented cat to the world. When things go wrong at the concert,(the cat taps a key to tell the mouse he is ready but breaks the mouse's glasses when he turns around), they are all hounded back to their home. Later as the cat is chasing the mouse, he bangs on drums in trying to hit the mouse. He shows he does indeed have talent - playing drums. Just as Mr Jones rings the paper to tell them, Mrs Jones says to hang up, not wanting a repeat of the last time. Instead they are content listening to their very talented pets in the privacy of their own living room.
That's my take on some of the classic WB Cartoons not starring Bugs and Co. Hope you enjoyed reminiscing about the good old days of animation before they became ads for selling toys to kids!!
|A few cartoons were made with Ralph and Sam who had an unusual working relationship. They would start and end their days saying hello and goodbye like friends as they clocked in and out of work but during their work day they were natural enemies. Who were Ralph and Sam?||Looney Tunes Classics
a wolf and sheepdog. Ralph was the wolf and Sam the sheepdog. My friend and I had a period in our lives when we would always greet each other in the morning with "Morning Ralph" - "Hello Sam". You had to admire Ralph the way he stuck at his job despite copping a beating from Sam every day. And he always went home with a smile on his face and a friendly goodbye for the sheepdog. I always preferred these two to Road Runner and Coyote. It was much more noble the way Sam use to hurt Ralph - it was just his job - no hard feelings at the end of the day!
|In "Chow Hound", a bulldog uses a cat and mouse to get him a regular feed. But they keep forgetting one important ingredient the dog wants with his food. What is it?||Looney Tunes Classics
Gravy. In this classic cartoon, the cat masquerades as a cat of various owners as well as a sabretoothed cat at the zoo. Each time it gets fed, it has to take the meat to the dog. But each time the dog complains that they forgot the gravy. The cat and mouse get their revenge in the end when finally the dog has eaten too much and is weakened. He is taken to a room where they pump an endless supply of gravy into the dog with the finishing line - "and this time we didn't forget the gravy!"
|In "Much Ado About Nutting", a nut loving squirrel finds himself in a nut store and goes crazy with each new discovery of a bigger nut. Which type of 'nut' does he spend most of the cartoon trying to crack open?||Looney Tunes Classics
coconut. A classic cartoon of facial expressions as time after time the squirrel is frustrated by its inability to open the coconut. After breaking jackhammers, rocks, the pavement at the bottom of the Empire State Building, he finally cracks the coconut open only to find another slightly smaller coconut inside. The look on its face is pure cartoon magic.
|The Wilburs discover that their real earth boy has ended up on Mars and has been given a name by his Martian parents. What is his name?||Looney Tunes Classics
Yob. They are visited by a rocket with a message from Sir U. Tan of Mars, telling them to guard the Martian baby Mot and that they'll soon be able to exchange him for their own son "Yob" (spell it backwards). Mot, however, has taken off in his own little flying saucer and after being chased by Mr. Wilbur flies off to Mars. Mr Wilbur wakes up in the maternity waiting room, realising it was all a dream. However, when he goes to see his new son in the nursery there is one surprise: the baby's wrist tag reads "Yob."
|A great miniseries was the one featuring "The Honeymousers" - a take off of Jackie Gleason's "Honeymooners." What were the names of the three mice who featured in this series?||Looney Tunes Classics
Ralph, Alice, Norton. Warner Bros didn't mess with a classic - they used the same names as the characters from Gleason's show.
|My favourite cartoon of all time is the classic "Three Little Bops" - a brilliant musical remake of "the Three Little Pigs." The first nightclub they played at was the House of Straw and the third was the House of Bricks. But what was the second called?||Looney Tunes Classics
Dew Drop Inn. Love the line after the wolf blows it down "Dew Drop Inn - Did drop down - three little pigs crawled out of the rubble - This big bad wolf gives us nothing but trouble - so we won't be bothered by his dirty tricks - the next place we play must be made of bricks."
Speedy Gonzales. Speedy Gonzales is a fast mouse. Sylvester has also chased a young kangaroo because he believed it was a mouse.
J.. His whole name is Sylvester J. Pussycat.
"Life With Feathers". This episode was about Sylvester and a parrot.
Yes. His son's name is Sylvester Junior. He looks a lot like Sylvester, but he is much smaller.
black and white. Another black and white character is Pepe Le Pew. Bugs is gray and white, Taz is brown and white, and Daffy is black and orange.
a cat. Bugs is a rabbit, Wile is a coyote, and Daffy is a duck.
Penelope. Penelope is a cat but she always seems to somehow gain a white stripe on her back from somewhere - often a bench or pole that has recently been painted - apparently making her look like a female skunk. Even though it happens over and over, she always seems surprised that Pepe goes after her. Blinded by love, Pepe does not even notice that she is a cat.
Speedy Gonzales . He is a tiny mouse in a large sombrero and he often stars opposite Sylvester the Cat. His claim to fame is his blazing speed that often gets him or his friends out of trouble.
|What item does Wile E. Coyote frequently use in a vain effort to protect himself from some huge falling object?||Looney for "Looney Tunes"
A Tiny Umbrella. His use of this item is usually paired with a sad look of inevitibility as he waits for the large rock or anvil or combination safe to land on his head. Sometimes Wile E. also uses a sign or a small wave to silently communicate his dread.
|Who was the original voice of nearly all of the primary "Looney Tunes" characters before he passed away in 1989?||Looney for "Looney Tunes"
Mel Blanc . Mel Blanc did the voices for just about every character before his tragic passing. A famous poster was put together commemorating his work. It pictures the group of "Looney Tunes" characters standing together off to the side with their heads bowed and an spotlit mic with no one in front of it. The picture bears a single word: "Speechless"
Thank you to player Tolkienist for the following additional interesting information:
While Mel Blanc did voice most of the main characters, he did not voice all of them. Elmer Fudd was done by Arthur Q. Bryan who played Ricky's boss Mr Chambers on the show "I Love Lucy". Also, Wile E Coyote was voiced by Hans Conried who worked for Jay Ward.
Blanc was actually rejected when he first auditioned at Warner Bros in 1938. The following year Tregoweth 'Treg' Brown, the sound editor interviewed Mel Blanc again and when Blanc was hired he asked what happened to the guy who rejected him the year before. Brown said: "Oh, he died."
|Foghorn Leghorn, the large comical rooster, shares several episodes with a tiny brown bird who is quite aggressive. What does this little bird claim he is?||Looney for "Looney Tunes"
A Chicken Hawk. Despite his small stature, this feisty little chicken hawk is full of confidence and attitude and is not afraid of anyone. He constantly insists he is superior to Foghorn Leghorn and their interactions are the source of many an episode.
|While multiple episodes feature the giant orange monster who works for the mad scientist, the monster only has a total of one line. The line consists of one word, followed by a scream. What is this only line ever spoken by the beloved monster?||Looney for "Looney Tunes"
"People! AHHH!". This is spoken at the very end of the episode. Bugs gets the monster's attention and points out into the audience saying, "Look! Out there in the audience..." Gossamer looks at the "camera" and yells, "People!" He then screams and turns around, running away and crashing through wall after wall of the castle leaving Gossamer-shaped holes in his wake.
|There are only a couple episodes featuring a giant orange monster usually starring opposite Bugs Bunny. What is the name of this lovable giant?||Looney for "Looney Tunes"
Gossamer . Gossamer only appears a couple of times. He works for the crazy scientist and the scientist sends him after Bugs Bunny. Bugs gets the best of this large but not-so-smart monster every time, though. One time Bugs even poses as a hair stylist and works on the monster's hair, commenting on how many "interesting people" he meets doing that job.
|What is the name of the enormous boxer that Bugs has to face in one of the episodes ("Bunny Hugged") with whom Bugs initially struggles but eventually defeats? (This is the episode when Bugs takes over for Ravishing Rollo)||Looney for "Looney Tunes" II
The Crusher. When they begin fighting, Bugs tries to take down The Crusher with traditional means but cannot make him budge an inch by hitting or pushing or pulling him. He even ends up climbing onto Crusher's head to try and take him down but the Crusher is not fazed at all. The Crusher initially beats Bugs up a little until Bugs begins his usual trickery. After a series of tricks and shenanigans, the Crusher is eventually knocked silly and as he falls down for the last time repeats "Duh, which way did he go? Which way did he go? Duh..."
A Glass of Water. Elmer usually successfully completes this feat, compressing his entire body into the glass of water. Bugs usually convinces Elmer to do this by pretending it is some huge performance for a large audience and congratulating him after it is over. Sometimes there is already a pool there but Bugs replaces it with a glass of water.
Bill. Usually caused by some sort of explosive or firearm or falling from too far, Daffy's bill has gone through quite a bit. It has been blown off (during which times Daffy can still talk with it), spun around, inverted and everything in between. No need to worry, though; like the rest of the "Tunes" he is usually back to normal in the next scene.
Sneakers. While most of his outfit seems appropriate for his space environment, Marvin apparently prefers simple sneakers for footwear. They are mostly white with red accents and look very large compared to his physical size.
Red and Brown. It is a large hunting hat with a small brim. There are two vertical patches of brown and two of red and the bottom of the hat including the bill is brown as well. Elmer does not pull the hat on very far and so it usually sits way too high on his head causing it to fold over slightly.
|What is the name of the huge abominable, but relatively friendly, snowman that often accidentally squeezes Bugs or Daffy way too hard?||Looney for "Looney Tunes" II
Hugo. This large and clumsy snow creature only appears a few times but he is enormous and simply wants to take care of Bugs or Daffy as if they were his pets. He usually calls them "George" and sometimes punishes them for being bad by walloping them on the behind. He also bares a resemblance to Sam, the sheepdog that often appears opposite Ralph (Wile E. Coyote).
Granny. "Name" is in quotes because "Granny" is not really her name like Sylvester is the name for the cat. However, while we never hear of her actual first name, she is always referred to as "Granny".
|What is the name of the female bunny that sometimes appears as the love interest for Bugs Bunny in "Looney Tunes"?||Looney for "Looney Tunes" II
Lola. Lola does not appear in a lot of the cartoons but she does play several supporting roles behind Bugs. In other episodes, Bugs has also been distracted by a robot female bunny. He even sometimes dresses up as a female himself in order to distract whomever is chasing him in a given episode.
Babs is the name of the female bunny in the TV series "Tiny Toons" (much more recent) and is not ever in "Looney Tunes".
The other two are made up.
|"I am quite the performer... but only when I feel like it. Even though I am tiny and green, my voice packs quite a wallop! And the cane and top hat really complete the ensemble well, I think!" The name of what U.S. state serves as my first name?||"Looney Tunes" Character Profiles
Michigan. Michigan J. Frog, appearing first in "One Froggy Evening" in 1955, is a small green frog that a man finds. To this guy's surprise, though, Michigan can sing and dance quite well! But when the guy tries to show off Michigan to people, he stops performing and just lets out a very normal-frog-like ribbit. The result is the same when the man books a performance hall to try and make money off his discovery. Then just as people exit the arena, Michigan starts again. The man gives up on becoming rich by his signing and dancing frog.
|"I am also a slightly lesser known character but that's okay with me. I am perfectly content to throw Sylvester all over the place with my powerful legs and tail. He always thinks he can capture me but it just ends up being a dangerous job for him! What does he think I am, a mouse?" What kind of animal am I?||"Looney Tunes" Character Profiles
Kangaroo. This small kangaroo, named Hippety Hopper, usually stars opposite Sylvester the Cat. Sylvester, who mistakenly believes that Hippety is a giant mouse, spends the episodes trying to catch Hippety but the bouncy little guy has no trouble disposing of him; usually by using his big feet and powerful tail to spin Sylvester in circles or send him flying across the room with a powerful kick.
