Film The Best Looney Tunes Cartoons

1k votes 15k views 70 items Embed
This is a list of what I consider to be the very best of a collective of some of the funniest, most creative animation done, ever. In fact, in the world of 7 minutes, no one has or ever will be as good as the guys at Termite Terrace in the 40s, 50s and 60s. A list of the best Looney Tunesc cartoons is exactly as hard and subjective as it sounds, and so I open the list to the public. Add what you think is missing and vote on what you think are the best. I know it's hard. God, I know. So...much...funny.
