Additional Information

Looney Tunes began as animated short films from Warner Brothers in the 1930s. Cartoonist and animator Chuck Jones began working on the existing entity under the director of Warner’s animation team in 1935, and over the years Jones expanded on characters like Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig, while creating all new characters such as Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner, both debuting in 1949. Wile E. Coyote was a self-proclaimed super genius, known for trying to come up with traps–often involving explosives–to capture the elusive roadrunner, with humorously disastrous (for himself) results. The button promoting Wile E. Coyote for President appears to be one of several presidential campaign buttons, including for the characters Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.
