Updated 18 Nov 2019 83.4k views7 items

These dreaded vices pop up in everything from acclaimed literature to cartoons and sitcoms. The seven cardinal sins are so ingrained in our subconscious that many sets of characters reflect them in one way or another. Looney Tunes may be one of the most beloved cartoons of all time, but the animated series also follows this formula. If you look closely, you'll find, amid its cast of perpetually-struggling rivals, characters whose defining personality traits can be linked directly to the seven capital sins. 

Numerous analyses of the cartoon characters and their mannerisms, as well as countless internet fan theories, have given rise to the idea that the Looney Tunes characters represent lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride.
