Bugs. Daffy. Tweety. Sylvester. For many Canadians, the mere mention of these names evoke fond childhood memories of spending Saturday mornings in front of a television, transfixed and spellbound as these characters—and many more—outsmarted each other in situations that could only exist in our imaginations.
The reverse image, provided by Warner Bros., artfully brings together every major character in the Looney Tunes
TM pantheon. The design is rendered in exquisite detail through expert engraving, with selective coloured enamel applied by hand to a coy Bugs Bunny who serves as the central focal point. The iconic rabbit is surrounded by a cast of characters, each one bearing different expressions that infuse the overall design with energy and recapture the zany spirit of fun with which Looney TunesTM is synonymous. Look closely to find Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, Sylvester, Marvin the Martian, Tweety, Porky Pig, Foghorn Leghorn, Elmer Fudd, the Tasmanian Devil, Road Runner, Speedy Gonzales, Yosemite Sam, Pepé Le Pew, and even Michigan J. Frog.
In keeping with the playful nature of Looney Tunes
TM, your coin includes a blueprint that resembles iconic Acme blueprints from the classic cartoons, and will help you identify the characters featured in the design. Makes a sentimental gift for any Looney TunesTM fan, or a wonderful collectible for those with a passion for animation and its history.
