See the Best of Bugs Bunny — as voted by you — beginning Monday, May 3

Watch 'Toon In With Me' all week for your fan-favorite Bugs cartoons.

Read to Me

From Monday, May 3, through Friday, May 7, tune in to Toon In With Me at 7AM | 6C for The Best of Bugs! We asked you, the fans, to pick your favorite Bugs Bunny cartoon from the fantastic Looney Tunes library. Now, we proudly present the winners.

Bill and Toony welcome special guest all week, including Jeff Bergman (former voice of Bugs Bunny), Jerry Beck (cartoon historian), Billy West (voice of Bugs in Space Jam), Robert McKimson Jr. (son of Looney Tunes director Robert McKimson), and Ruth Clampett (daughter of Looney Tunes director Bob Clampett). 

Each day is built around a theme, as we trace the history of Bugs, showcase his musical side, and much more! Here is a guide to what you will see.

Monday, May 3 at 7AM | 6C

"Rabbit Tracks"

We trace the origin of Bugs Bunny, from his white prototype, Happy Rabbit, to the gray rabbit we know and love today. See how his image and voice evolved. Cartoons include Porky's Hare Hunt (1938), Prest-O Change-O (1939), Hare-Um Scare-Um (1939), A Wild Hare (1940) and Elmer's Candid Camera (1940).

Tuesday, May 4 at 7AM | 6C

"Of Course You Realize This Means War"

On day two, we examine Bugs' biggest adversaries — human, animal, and alien. Cartoons include Wabbit Twouble (1941), Duck! Rabbit, Duck! (1953), Wild and Wooly Hare (1959), Hare-Way to the Stars (1959), and Devil May Hare (1954).

Wednesday, May 5 at 7AM | 6C

"Ballads for a Bunny"

Get ready to sing along! Day three examines Bugs' musical side, and the many ways Looney Tunes incorporated classical music and opera. Cartoons include Rhapsody Rabbit (1946), Long-Haired Hare (1949), Rabbit of Seville (1950), Baton Bunny (1959), and What's Opera, Doc? (1957).

Thursday, May 6 at 7AM | 6C

"Hollywood Bugs"

On day four, we watch cartoons with a Hollywood connection. Cartoons include Slick Hare (1947), What's Cookin' Doc? (1944), A Star is Bored (1956), A Hare Grows in Manhattan (1947), and What's Up, Doc? (1950).

Friday, May 7 at 7AM | 6C

"Wascally Winners"

On our fifth and final day, we present the fan-favorite Bugs Bunny cartoons as voted online by you. It's the First Annual Toony Awards! Cartoons include Little Red Riding Rabbit (1944), Bully for Bugs (1953), Hillbilly Hare (1950), Baseball Bugs (1946), and… your vote for the best Bugs Bunny cartoon of all time!

Is there a reason why METV cut the first 10 seconds from A Lad and His Lamp Saturday morning?
Just wish Warner would put out a complete Bugs Bunny blu ray set. Add your disclaimers about a few of the cartoons. Guaranteed they will sell a ton of them. I believe they did Porky Pig.

Are you really surprised? They'll show Tweety or Sylvester doing Japanese or Italian accents, but not the Flintstones. At the moment, they are getting ready to skip a Jetsons episode. No rhyme or reason to some of these decisions.

Thanks METV, for the past weeks Bugs Bunny special! Maybe next year you can stretch the event out to include Saturday morning. Looking forward to next Monday's Toon In With Me episode.

Awesome week of cartoons and even if my favorite wasn't the top pick, it was great to see Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf in today's line-up. HEY GRANMA! And very cool that you aired What's Opera Doc on Wednesday AND AGAIN today! That Rubenesque horse sitting down on its back haunches gets me every time.
I also voted for Little Red Riding Rabbit!

"Big Top Bunny" with 'no no no Bruno is de star of de show' & "Mugsy and Bugsy" with the line 'Alright rabbit you've convinced me we'll go look for Mugsy in the city' are two of my faves.

Wish you would show all these great cartoons later in the day (or night) Bugs Bunny is my all time favorite but I can't watch at 6 AM and no DVR
You can buy a relatively cheap digital tuner with a USB recorder. That's what I had to do because of work and not being able to watch it live.

Two things I would like to see. Do the same thing for Tom and Jerry and also is there a chance of some Woody Woodpecker and friends cartoons?
Don't know if you're a fan, but The Pink Panther is coming to Toon In With Me starting next Monday.
Also the Inspector Clouseau shorts as well. Transylvania Mania (1968) is scheduled for Thursday's show and the Saturday morning block is including the Roland and Rattfink shorts as well.

Why am I not seeing these classics @ 7am on Ch 188?? There is WLKY news scheduled...

They changed Happy Rabbit to Bugs Bunny cause Happy was similar to Woody Woodpecker with his laugh.

I was hoping for Bugs and Thugs (with Rocky and Mugsy) and Rabbit's Kin (with Pete Puma) Guess I can wait...
Grynch_84 Tim 16 days ago
Both have already aired on the M-F show. Won't be long before a re-run I suppose.

Awww. Love the line up but no "Ali Baba Bunny?" Maybe when you do a Bugs and Daffy duo (hint-hint), you can pull up all of those and include it. It's one of their best. ("Consequenses-smonsequenses as long as I'm rich!" Best line ever!)
You just missed it by two or three Saturdays mornings back. I do agree with you, about it being a funny Bugs and Daffy cartoon.

Hey, fellas—the prototype Bugs Bunny really wasn't called "Happy Rabbit" (a name Mel Blanc seems to have made up in the 1970s); he had the name Bugs Bunny in legal documents early as spring 1939. See this piece from Jerry Beck and myself here: https://cartoonresearch.com/index.php/how-old-is-bugs-bunny/
So nearly all the original Warner Brothers animators, has added their own unique spin to Bugs Bunny during the early years.

They also changed the Bugs Bunny prototype do to the similarities to Woody Woodpecker.

7 AM is way too early for me. I'm retired and don't have to get up so early anymore. Maybe switch it to 10 AM or better yet maybe 5 or 6 PM.

Hillbilly Hare is my a time favorite. I also love the pete puma/bugs bunny cartoons. Didn't seem to be more than 2 or 3 of them though.
