Looney Tunes: Issue #161


Last weekend I attended the Asheville Comic Expo with my daughter. While I was there I met Matthew Manning, who is a contributing writer for this issue. I spoke with him for a while and I picked up this issue, which he graciously signed for me.

Although I loved watching Looney Tunes and Bugs Bunny as a kid, I can’t recall ever reading a Bugs Bunny comic. While it was not quite as enjoyable as the cartoon (there is something about Mel Blanc’s voice that just makes you want to laugh), I still enjoyed reading it. It brought back a lot of memories.

The comic is comprised of three short comic vignettes, all of which feature Bugs himself. The stories include some of the other classic Looney Tunes characters: Yosemite Sam (as the pirate High Seas Sam), Elmer Fudd, the Crusher, and a cameo by Daffy Duck. Sitting and reading about their antics on a Saturday morning brought back the feeling of watching Saturday morning cartoons. It is a good feeling.

I have to say, I weawy wiked weading about dat wascawy wabbit. I think I will have to watch some old episodes on YouTube next.

  1. If you are ever in Santa Fe, check out the Chuck Jones Gallery. Original Bugs Bunny cartoon art. And of course plenty of WIley Coyote and Road Runner.

    • Hi Amber. That sounds very cool. My wife and I spent a couple days in Santa Fe on our honeymoon and had a great time. Would love to go back there. Thanks for the comment and I hope the rest of your weekend if nothing short of great!

  2. I love that you take your daughter to Comic Expos. 🙂

    • It really makes me happy, too. Seeing how excited she gets and sharing that is one of the blessings of being a parent. Thanks for taking the time to comment and I hope you have a wonderful evening 🙂
