The Looney Tunes™ characters are some of the craziest and best-loved animated characters of all time. The first Looney Tunes™ short dates to 1929, although the first appearance of a major character recognizable today was by Porky Pig in 1935. Merrie Melodies were animated in full colour starting in 1934, a full nine years before Looney Tunes™.
The reverse of this coin features a scene from the 1957 Academy Award winning cartoon that pitted Sylvester against Tweety Bird. A colourized Sylvester looks sheepish as he has been busted in the act of grabbing Tweety Bird from a cage. The two characters featured together in 40 cartoons during the classic era of Looney Tunes™.
