The Bugs Bunny & Friends hour on MeTV this morning had some primo vintage Warner Brothers stuff, which Bobbi and I enjoyed immensely. Among the highlights: 
  • The Wabbit Who Came to Supper, an early 1942-vintage piece from the "Fat Elmer" period
  • Haredevil Hare, Marvin the Martian's debut from 1948, which introduced us all to the dangers of the Uranium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulator
  • Birdy and the Beast, also from 1948, which was Tweety's second cartoon short, back when he was still pink
...and finally, the Coyote and the Road Runner in Gee Whiz-z-z-z-z-z-z and the enduring classic, Baseball Bugs

Even when I was watching this stuff as a child, I could tell the difference between the '40s and '50s classics and the newer cartoons.
