Can't stand him.
taz, but mostly because i can't separate the character from all the shitty merchandise
honestly tweety.....at least the new stylized tweety
the tweety that was drawn awkwardly and acted more like bugs who could fly im ok with
Second Foghorn. I like him more as a lawyer on Futurama.
Also, I dislike Taz and Tweety mostly because fat women seem to have an affinity towards them. Seriously! I've seen more Taz or Tweety tattoos on more fat arms than I'd even want to. Also, they deck their cars out with the characters, usually dressed in "urban" wear.
Pathetic. Especially considering they were originally created by wholesome racist white guys.
UP AND ATOM!
Porky and Tweety. Too much Foghorn in one sitting and he's annoying. I tend to root for the dog in those ones.
Foghorn is my favorite Mel Blanc voice; such a funny character
i'm not a huge fan of the three bears; Taz is seriously one of the worst Warner creations of all time; Pepe le Pew is the dullest of Jones' one-joke characters; Coyote and Road Runner is impossible to handle in large doses.
I'm the resident Looney Tunes geek around here, so you know I'm gonna get obscure.
The only Warner Bros. character whom I actively dislike is Buddy. He was created in 1933 by animator Tom Palmer as an effort to replace Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising's Bosko character, and apparently Palmer forgot to give him a personality. He didn't bring anything new to the table (Bob Clampett once called Buddy "Bosko in whiteface"), and his first cartoons were so bad that the entire Looney Tunes animation studio was almost shut down right then and there. Pretty much his entire M.O. consisted of dancing around merrily to the tune of whatever Warner-owned song they had to plug in that particular cartoon. Fortunately, Tex Avery showed up in 1935 and taught everyone there how to make funny cartoons, and Buddy was mercifully retired.
A number of Buddy cartoons are on the sixth Looney Tunes Golden Collection, and they're a pain and a half to sit through. Say what you will about Tweety and the Tasmanian Devil and Pepe le Pew, but at least they actually try to make the audience laugh.
Agree with Taz and Tweety and i'm not really much of a fan of Marvin the Martian, he isn't inherently unlikable but every cartoon with him in it is exactly the same and frankly he is alittle dull

As a kid, I didn't like The Three Bears, except in their first and only instance when they were paired with Bugs Bunny. The Papa Bear, or "Henry" was just too mean to make the series enjoyable.
I also hate what happened to Daffy after about 1963, when he became yet another Looney Tunes villain. (There were already attempts at that before, but for the remainder of the decade, he would replace Sylvester as Speedy Gonzales' main antagonist.) Chuck Jones was the only director who really understood how to make Daffy a greedy slob, as there was always a layer of likability behind it. Take that away, and he's even worse off than Elmer Fudd or Yosemite Sam.
"Haredevil Hare" and "Hare-Way to the Stars", but the Instant Martians in the latter picture definitely help to set them apart (not to mention those incredible Maurice Noble layouts). "The Hasty Hare" is incomparable to the other films, as it actually brings Marvin to Bugs' environment, not the other way around. And of course, "Duck Dodgers in the 24th 1/2 Century" puts Marvin into the formula of Chuck Jones' Daffy and Porky movie parodies of the '50s.
"Mad as a Mars Hare", though, that one's just crappy. It's from 1963, which was during Jones' "have every character talk nonstop for seven minutes" phase, and it suffers from some really boring animation.
And when you're watching those pig-cartoons, also give this one a check. It isn't Porky, but is a terrific cartoon and it inspired the THOH4-segment, in which Homer meets the devil.
About worse characters: I never understood why they used Granny as much as they did.

"Bad Ol' Puddy Tat").
But in "Canary Row", the dynamic changed. Suddenly, it's Granny who beats the crap out of Sylvester, while Tweety just sits in his cage and watches. Freleng said that he deliberately toned down Tweety as the series went on, and I personally think that was a mistake. (Granny had potential, though, and Freleng realized it in "Hare Trimmed", one of her only appearances outside of the Sylvester and Tweety series, and one of the funniest Bugs/Yosemite Sam cartoons ever made.)
Don't forget the nightmare that was Loonatics Unleashed.

i enjoy that tweety, not the yellow bastardized version
Beaky Buzzard and Charlie Dog ("Look, you ain't got a dog, and I ain't got a master!")
And who does remember this Mickey Mouse-clone, called Foxy?
i remember it, toonheads had a whole episode of mickey rip-offs
man, i haven't thought about toonheads in years but i miss it
i'm guessing you nerds would just roll your eyes if i started making obvious references to the itchy & scratchy movie and the day the violence died
