The Looney Tunes™ characters are some of the craziest and best-loved animated characters of all time. The first Looney Tunes™ short dates to 1929, although the first appearance of a major character recognizable today was by Porky Pig in 1935. Merrie Melodies were animated in full colour starting in 1934, a full nine years before Looney Tunes™.
The reverse of this coin features a scene from the first cartoon that pitted Wile E. Coyote against the Road Runner. A colourized Wile E. Coyote looks baffled that the Road Runner has somehow avoided smashing into the lid he is holding over the road. Road Runner has come to complete stop before no doubt sticking out it's tongue and running away at high speed. Fast and Furry-ous debuted in 1949, and the two characters have since been featured together in 48 additional cartoons to date.
