To call some of these characters “minor” seems to be an unnecessary insult, considering the fact that Hank Williams, Jr. mentions one in song (Foghorn Leghorn), and many consider Roadrunner cartoons to be of the best around.
But, according to the experts, minor they are.
Only a few deserve the moniker.
Here are the ten top “minor” Looney Tunes characters:
10. Hippety Hopper
How many times has Sylvester made the mistake of trying to box this little creature?
9. Goofy Gophers
Mac and Tosh: Polite little gophers
8. Speedy Gonzales/Slowpoke Rodriguez
The fastest mouse in all of Mexico, and Not.
7. Tasmanian Devil
The youngest of Looney Tunes characters
6. Yosemite Sam
Another dupe for Bugs Bunny…and a funny one!
5. Michigan J. Frog
The million dollar frog that failed to make millions. He had one fatal flaw. He couldn’t sing in front of
4. Marvin the Martian
Another character to annoy Bugs.
3. Pepe’ Le Pew
Suave, romantic, and smelly
2. Wile E. Coyote/Roadrunner
A metaphor for life’s failures
And the most major minor Looney Tunes character of the all:
1. Foghorn Leghorn
Funniest when he interacts with Henery Hawk.
