The 50 Greatest Saturday Morning Cartoons

5. The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show (CBS, 1978-1985)

Thirty-eight years. That's longer than anyone reading this (or working here) has been alive! Yet it's how long the Looney Tunes world stayed on Saturday mornings (after two years of primetime-only in the early '60s), influencing just about anybody who grew up in any of the four decades.

Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Sylvester and Tweety, Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, Foghorn Leghorn, Pepe LePew...should we go on? Because we can.

There's simply not a television show that can boast that many lasting cultural symbols, and that many memorable moments, animated or otherwise. Bow down or lay the fuck down. We're taking a left turn at Albuquerque.
