    10th Annual June Bugs Brings Alphabetical Zaniness to Cartoon Network

    Cartoon Network, TV's Exclusive Home to Looney Tunes, Dedicates 38 Straight Hours to Bugs Bunny June 1 and 2

This year, June Bugs presents more than 160 Bugs Bunny cartoons in alphabetical order, beginning with "The Abominable Snow Rabbit," and ending with "Yankee Doodle Bugs."

         Over the course of 38 straight hours, Bugs will clash with an all-star roster of Looney tunes stars, ranging his most frequent tormentors, like Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam, as well as lesser-known co-stars such as Cecil Turtle, Count Bloodcount, Sir Pantsalot and Witch Hazel.

The versatile star always keeps his cool and outsmarts his foe. Bugs is just as comfortable in outer space, facing off against Marvin Martian, as he is in a grassy glade. He has also been known to traipse through time, rubbing shoulders with historical figures like Christopher Columbus ("Hare We Go"), Robin Hood ("Rabbit Hood"), Dr. Jekyll ("Hyde and Hare") and even Humphrey Bogart ("Slick Hare").

         In 2001, June Bugs racked up powerful ratings to become the most-watched stunt ever on Cartoon Network. Airing June 1-3, June Bugs scored a 1.6 average household rating (+14 percent) and delivery of an average 1,146,000 homes (+25 percent over last year). The stunt also charted its best-ever kids 6-11 rating (2.8), tweens 9-14 rating (1.7) and adults 18-34 rating (0.7).

Daffy's Revenge, to air Saturday, June 1 at 8 a.m. (ET, PT), through 8 a.m. (ET, PT) on Monday, June 3, will feature 76 Daffy Duck shorts from the Looney Tunes library.
