There are two kinds of people in the world: Disney people and Looney Tunes people, according to historian Charles Carney. Which are you?
The Looney Tunes game
A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I used to run a computer games company. At one point we were developing a Spy-vs-Spy-style video game using Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny. All that remains of our efforts is this video clip because the publisher cancelled the project before we finished it. I think it would have been fun.
When we were working on it, I went to a lecture by Charles Carney, the official Warner Bros historian to discover how to work with these immortal characters. I just discovered my notes from his lectures and this priceless table that lets you discover whether you are a Looney Tunes person or a Disney person. Enjoy!
