10 Good Guys Who Are Major-League Jerks

TV’s original troll, Bugs’ relationship with Elmer Fudd goes beyond simply avoiding the hapless hunter to outright tormenting him given any opportunity. Constantly dashing Fudd’s hopes for a nice rabbit dinner is something Bugs enjoys. In fact, ruining his nemesis’ day is pretty much all Bugs ever does (in the original cartoons, that is—there’s a healthy dose of non-Fudd related basketball playing in Space Jam). That Fudd keeps coming back for more says something about his own psyche, whether it’s a fundamental inability to accept a lost cause or something more masochistic. Bugs’ own behavior at times takes on a decidedly sadistic edge (dressing up as a lady rabbit to seduce and humiliate poor Fudd? Is that really necessary, Bugs?)
The two of them are locked in an existential horror show, where life has no meaning except Fudd’s relentless torment of the oblivious sod who keeps coming back for more every time. Looney Tunes is much more depressing than I thought it was growing up.
