The Bugs Bunny Show (and all its incarnations)

This is a super rare show that Warner Bros. doesn't even have all the episodes anymore (at least in color). It is included here because it is like a frontend to many Looney Tunes shorts from above (from 1948 onwards), however 52 episodes were produced for ABC in 1960/1961. It was reaired in color in 1965, cut up in 1968 and aired in 1971 in Canada.

The last of these is still airing in Canada, even today.

Further information

There are 6 DVDs available as the Looney Tunes Golden Collection series as it is highly recommended that these are purchased to support the highly expensive restoration costs per cartoon. The American versions are the best as they have all the episodes and special features (unlike the European version that has 4 cartoons missing from the recent set).
