Which Looney Tunes character came first?

Do you know when these classic characters debuted?

When some Looney Tunes characters first played in theaters, they looked very different from the later iterations that became iconic. There’s even debate over when exactly certain characters became the "official" versions of themselves. Some were named from the start (like Porky) while others started as unnamed animal antagonists before becoming full-fledged characters.

Here are 10 Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies characters as seen in some of their earliest shorts. Can you guess which one came first?

9 OUT OF 10!! Never heard of Cecil Turtle. Isn't there something about not naming two different cartoon characters the same name? If so, why was there Cecil Turtle AND Cecil of Beany and Cecil?

Cecil Turtle came before the Beany and Cecil cartoons. The Beany and Cecil cartoons were based on puppets from a kids tv show called Time for Beany from the 50s, so when they made it into a cartoon, they weren't going to change the character's name. Besides they were made by two different production companies. The Beany and Cecil Cartoons were made in the 60s for TV. The Cecil Turtle cartoons were made in the 40s to be shown in theaters before the main movie.

He used to race Bugs Bunny and would always win.
I wish they'd show the Cecil racing Bugs cartoons as well as Porky's debut in "If I Only Had a Hat"

We need more cartoons from the 30s and early 40s and less Chuck Jones.

I'm glad, too, classic cartoons NEVER go out of style IMHO 😁!
