Are you a Mickey Mouse fan or do you still quote Bugs Bunny?

When I was a kid, I never watched Mickey Mouse cartoons. I was an avid fan of Bugs Bunny and all his great cohorts: Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, the Tasmanian Devil and who can forget, Marvin the Martian? I always thought Bugs was hip and cool and I loved his sly, sarcastic manner. Bugs always came out on top and had the best lines in every cartoon. Even today, people still say "eh, what's up doc?" So, when you were a kid did you prefer the innocence of Mickey or were you the kind of kid who couldn't get enough Bugs?

I'd have to say Bugs Bunny! The cartoons with him in are classic and I can think of many great scenes but I can't even remember any Mickey Mouse scenes!!

I think the only Mickey Mouse cartoon I remember is the Mickey Mouse version of "A Christmas Carol" with Mickey as Bob Cratchit. For me, the others aren't memorable, but Bugs is a very memorable character. Thanks for responding.

Did Mickey only appear in films? If so that could explain why so many people prefer Bugs - he was in lots of cartoons!

i do like Looney toons but i was more exposed to Disney since I was a child. Until now, with the Disney channel available on the Cable shows, I enjoy watchind their shows. I am much familiar with the cartoon characters on Disney rather than Looney toons.

I suppose it depends on what you grew up with. Disney didn't have their own channel when I was a kid. We just watched the regular networks then and we had Bugs and Looney Tunes every Saturday morning and sometimes in the afternoons on reruns.

While I love Mickey Mouse, there is absolutely no comparison between him and Bugs Bunny. Bugs Bunny Rocks!!! He is just so funny. I always like to watch how he out smarts Elmer Fudd and the rest of the gang. Even when he gets caught, he will still get away by playing like he is dying or something. Bugs Bunny is a true legend. I hope that when I have children, those classics will still be around for them to enjoy. Whenever I would go visit one of my old doctor's, I would say, "Hey, what's up doc? He would just look at me and smile.

Bugs is wry, sarcastic, cool and cynical while Mickey is just so innocent and well, ineffectual. Bugs is the best and it seems that kids can still watch him based on the young people who responded to this. I think Cartoon Network might have Bugs on, not sure. A classic, that's exactly what he is.

Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck forever! They are funny with more personality than Mickey Mouse!

I love Bugs Bunny. Unfortunately, I grew up with the Mousekeeters generation and I know the theme song off by heart. Do you think good publicity worked in the end for Mickey Mouse? Give me Bugs anytime glen

I think Mickey is in trouble over in China where workers at his theme park are protesting the working conditions and pay. But I missed seeing the Mickey Mouse show the first time around, they showed it in reruns back in the early 70s though, so I know the song too.

I think my favorite might be the one where Bugs and Elmer Fudd are doing Wagnerian opera.

Bugs Bunny of course! Even as an adult I will watch it with the kids. I didn't really see a lot of Mickey Mouse. It was only on special occasion we would see that on T.V. I liked the Bugs Bunny cartoons because they were so humorous from a child's point of view and now from an adults point of view. Sometimes I laugh because some of the characters that he is picking on remind me of people that I know. I think Yosimite Sam is the most fun protagonist to watch Bugs atagonize. He turns red and calls him Varmit and Bugs always gets him in the end. I have so many favorite lines I copy from the cartoons, and kids love it!

I used to like and watch both when I was a kid, but now I'm totally a Disney person. I've gotten very tired of Looney Toons, and find them almost annoying. :/

I never saw Mickey Mouse. I always saw Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry. I never got the reason people liked Mickey. I always thought Jerry Mouse was the better Mouse.And Bugs Bunny cartoons were better. I think I know why. Bugs Bunny was made for adults and Mickey was made for children.

I prefer Bugs over Mickey Moise too. My all time favorite cartoon is Tom and Jerry though. I still love to watch them. I still cheer on Jerry. I also liked Tennesee Tuxedo too.
