>Perhaps Ernst has some favorite classic short cartoons that he can recommend?
I'll expand on my earlier reply with this list of specific cartoon shorts. Digging through my memory, these are the ones which really stand out, and that I would call "must-see" for any fan of Warner Bros.
cartoons. I'm sure that I'm forgetting something that will come to me later, but this is a good start. And I didn't remember the titles, of course, but by googling things like "that cartoon with a dog named Marc Anthony" I was able to find them.
Oh, if you only see one of these, make it "What's Opera, Doc." That cartoon is a national treasure.

While I'm at it, here is some interesting Bugs Bunny trivia. His conflict with Elmer Fudd actually created a new definition for the word 'Nimrod':
>Bugs constantly outwits and insults Elmer, and one of his favorites put-downs is calling the hapless hunter a “nimrod.” Which, as we all know, means idiot. The Secret Origin of One of Bugs Bunny’s Best Insultshttps://dotandline.net/when-bugs-bunny-beat-the-bible/>>42644
>Except until Bugs Bunny came along, it didn’t.
>In the long span of human history before Bugs, Nimrod—a biblical figure—was a hunter. He was king of Shinar, son of Cush, and great-grandson of Noah.
>Nimrod was about as far as you could get from Elmer Fudd— which is why Bugs always sarcastically called Elmer exactly that. And while kids watching the cartoons may not have understood the Biblical reference, they did understand Bugs’s tone.
>Because of Bugs’s popularity, the bunny’s use of nimrod became, over time, the predominant version of the word—so much so that, today, few people even know it is actually a Biblical reference.
>I kinda feel bad for Wile E. Coyote
Same. In those scenes where something painful is about to happen, and he looks at the camera, I can't help but feel some small sympathy for Wile E. He knows the boulder is about to fall on his head-again-, but he's powerless to stop it. We've all been there, right :D
