Quotes

Bugs Bunny: [as Wile E. Coyote is tying him to a spit] I'm your new neighbor from down the street. I brung you those carrots you asked for. Personally, I don't think a stew is a stew without carrots.
[Sniffs]
Bugs Bunny: Mmm, smells good. What kind of stew is it?
[Dips his ear in the pot and tastes it]
Bugs Bunny: Mmm-mmm. Rabbit ear stew. Very good too. Er, I'd love to stay for lunch, but it appears I'm all tied up this morning.
Wile E. Coyote: Oh, you're going to stay for lunch. You are lunch. Now, what kind of wine goes best with wild game? You ...

metal of honor

It's true that the Looney Tunes had pretty much passed their prime by the time that "Compressed Hare" came out, but you gotta love what Bugs Bunny does to Wile E. Coyote, who's taking a little break from chasing Road Runner. To be certain, I knew that something neat was coming up when "Powerhouse" started playing. Bugs's and Wile E.'s puns are obviously pretty hokey, but the end scene is probably one of the funniest that ever appeared in the Looney Tunes or Merrie Melodies series.

So, even if the series's heyday was over, the cartoons were still able to make us laugh. We definitely have, um, concrete evidence of that.

So yes, are you in, genius?
