The Looney Tunes cartoons are a classic piece of Americana. Originally, Looney Tunes shorts were meant to showcase Warner Brothers' original music compositions. But they introduced characters that Americans took to their hearts. Some of these characters became iconic, like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Tweety Bird. Today, their images can be found on everything from bed sheets to car-seat covers.
But other Looney Tunes characters have faded into obscurity. (For that matter, so did "Merrie Melodies," Looney Tunes's sister series). Few people remember Bosko or Buddy, for example, two of the earliest Looney Tunes characters. And Cecil Turtle only appeared in three shorts before disappearing, while his co-star, Bugs Bunny, is a star to this day. For this reason, there's a lot of Looney Tunes lore to dig into. Did you know that Granny, the owner of Tweety and Sylvester, has a name -- and that she was a spy in World War II? Kinda cool, eh?
