My Favourite Old-Time Cartoon Characters

Marvin the MartianI can't remember how we actually got onto the topic, but last night me and Des were discussing our favourite of the old-time cartoon characters (think original Warner Brothers and Disney characters).

Here are mine:
Out of the Warner Bros. characters, my favourite is definitely Marvin the Martian. A close runner up to him from the WB characters is Daffy Duck, with an honourable mention going to Wile E. Coyote. By the looks of those choices, it seems i'm attracted to 'losers' of the WB bunch :S.

Out of the Disney characters, my favourites are Goofy and Pluto. (as an aside, it's interesting to note that both are dogs, but only Goofy is anthropomorphic! I guess he got the better end of the mutant/freak gene-pool that these characters are based off). Honourable mention goes to Donald Duck.

Most people I know, both young and old, tend to have grown up with these cartoons one way or another. What's your favourite?
