The first full-length his­to­ry and crit­i­cal study of the Looney Tunes ani­ma­tion fran­chise, which pro­duced the fun­ni­est short films of the sound era. Find out about the artists who cre­at­ed a unique com­e­dy style and world-famous char­ac­ters like Bugs Bun­ny and Foghorn Leghorn, as well as attempts to revive the fran­chise with projects like Space Jam. The book com­bines breezy, acces­si­ble pop-cul­ture his­to­ry with crit­i­cism that will help read­ers under­stand every aspect of what makes a great Looney Tunes car­toon.
