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.

Rabbit of Seville is a Warner Bros. Looney Tunes theatrical cartoon short released in 1950. It was directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese. The cartoon, in a plotline reminiscent of Stage Door Cartoon, features Bugs Bunny being chased by Elmer Fudd into the stage door of the Hollywood Bowl, whereupon Bugs tricks Elmer into going onstage, and participating in a break-neck operatic production of their chase punctuated with gags and accompanied by musical arrangements by Carl Stalling, focusing on Rossini's overture to The Barber of Seville. Stalling's arrangement is remarkable in that the overture's basic structure is kept relatively intact; some repeated passages are removed ...more on Wikipedia

Duck Dodgers in the 24½ᵗʰ Century is a Merrie Melodies cartoon created in 1952 and released on July 25, 1953, starring Daffy Duck as space hero Duck Dodgers, Porky Pig as his assistant, and Marvin the Martian as his opponent.
