The Best Looney Tunes Video Games of All Time (Ranked)

Looney Tunes have been a part of every childhood in the Western world since 1930.

Born during the Golden Age of American animation, this cast of insane animals, aliens, monsters, and deranged humans has given us countless hours of laughter.

If you love watching cartoons starring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and others, maybe you should consider a more practical approach:

You should try Looney Tunes video games.

Being the famous franchise that it is, there are many Looney Tunes titles. And it is difficult to find the true gems.

Fortunately, you have to do that for yourself.

20. Bugs Bunny: Rabbit Rampage (1994)

Available on SNES

Rabbit Rampage is a 2D platformer that follows Bugs Bunny on a surreal quest within a painted world orchestrated by a rogue animator.

The game’s levels are inspired by the classic Looney Tunes shorts and feature fast-paced action that should challenge the average gamer.

Before the campaign ends, you will have fought Yosemite Sam, Taz, Marvin the Martian, and various incarnations of Daffy Duck, including Duck Dodgers.

19. Desert Demolition starring Road Runner and Will E. Coyote (1995)

Available on Sega Genesis

As its cast may suggest, Desert Demolition is an action platformer about speed.

If you choose to play as Road Runner, you will have to evade Will E. Coyote as you make your way through various levels of the desert.

Choose the Coyote and you will get extra points for catching the Road Runner.

Each character plays quite differently, so it is worth clarifying the game as each of them; Also, you can see different animated endings.

18. Duck Dodgers starring Daffy Duck (2000)

Available on Nintendo 64

If you’ve played a cartoon-based platformer, you’ve played Duck Dodgers.

There are five planets to visit, each with their own Looney Tunes characters to fight as bosses.

Daffy Duck (or Duck Dodgers) must collect all the energy atoms before Marvin the Martian to prevent the little astronaut from destroying the Earth.

The story couldn’t be more standard, but the humor is on point throughout the campaign.

It’s not a groundbreaking game by any means, but Duck Dodgers fans will find a lot to love in this old-school title.

17. Dash from Looney Tunes! (2014)

Previously available on iOS

If you’ve played Temple Run or Subway Surfers, you know what Looney Tunes Dash is! is about.

This endless runner stars Looney Tunes characters with unique abilities that help the player. These include Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Taz, Speedy Gonzalez, and Road Runner.

The game had an excellent sense of progression and could be quite entertaining for the first few hours, especially for children. Sadly, the game was discontinued in 2018.

But you might be able to find some kind of existing dumps / copies online if you search deep enough.

16. Tiny Toons Adventures: Buster Busts Loose! (1993)

Available on SNES

Buster Loose Busts! is a worthy successor to the original Tiny Toons Adventures (1991) on the NES.

Its gorgeous 16-bit graphics are among the most attractive on the SNES. They are colorful and undeniably cute, which makes this side scrolling adventure even more enjoyable.

If you are looking for a challenge, you will find it in the hard mode of the game.

The game is relatively short with only six levels, but you have to beat them on hard mode to access the final level and see the ending.

15. Looney Tunes B-Ball (1995)

Available on SNES

When I was a kid, I was always skeptical about sports games.

He wasn’t the most athletic and I figured he wouldn’t enjoy video game sports any more than he did with his real counterparts.

If I had met Looney Tunes B-Ball back then, maybe it would have broadened my horizons.

The controls are easy to learn and the graphics are fantastic.

Most importantly, I know these characters, unlike the real world NBA Jam rosters .

14. Tiny Toon Adventures: Wacky Sports Challenge (1994)

Available on SNES / Game Boy

Another Looney Tunes sports title that everyone should try is Tiny Toon Adventures: Wacky Sports Challenge, starring the younger counterparts of our favorite cartoons.

The game supports up to four players (with Multitap) competing in various Olympic events, including bungee jumping, chicken coop, cymbal toss, and exciting obstacle courses.

These fast-paced mini-games coupled with four-player functionality make Wacky Sports Challenge a forerunner to party games like Mario Party.

13. Looney Tunes Collector: Alert! (2000)

Available on Game Boy Color

When Marvin the Martian kidnaps the Looney Tunes characters in another evil plot, Bugs and a handful of survivors must free the rest and lead the charge to stop Marvin.

It follows the “catch and collects” trend started by Pokémon, tasked with retrieving 47 different characters.

Once “trapped”, Bugs can switch places with 14 of his cartoon friends to fight enemies or solve puzzles.

An interesting title for this old portable console.

12. Looney Tunes: Marvin Strikes Back! (2000)

Available on Game Boy Color

The sequel brings more of the same cartoon compilation gameplay, but we play it from the villain‘s perspective.

Daffy Duck makes a movie about the events of the previous game that paints Marvin in a less than flattering light. The alien chooses violence and embarks on a quest for revenge.

As in the original, each character collected by Marvin has a different ability that will help you on your way to victory.

You can even transfer characters between the two games with a link cable.

11. Bugs Bunny and Taz: Time Busters (2000)

Available on PC / PS2

Starring two of the most famous Looney Tunes characters, Time Busters brings exciting cooperative platforming action.

You and a friend take on the roles of Bugs Bunny and Taz to explore various time periods in search of carrots, clocks, and anything else that can help you repair Grandma’s Time Regulator.

It’s not the most revolutionary game, but it captures the humor and personality of the animated series.

Using Taz and Bugs’ skills together to solve puzzles is an exciting and fun co-op challenge.

10. Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003)

Available on PS2 / GCN / GBA

Back in Action is based on a 2003 animated/live action comedy starring human actors and Bugs and Daffy.

The story is pretty much the same, with a few small changes to better suit the progression of the game.

The gameplay here is tight, the visuals are solid, and it’s full of unique challenges to complete.

You can even tackle the game in co-op mode as Lucas and Bugs, each with their own unique abilities that will help you progress through the five regions of the game.

9. Taz: Wanted (2002)

Available on PC / XBOX / PS2 / GameCube

The Tasmanian Devil, affectionately known as Taz, became a sensation in the 90s.

And he remains one of the most famous Looney Tunes characters to this day.

Taz got his first video game adaptation in 1983, but Taz: Wanted is the first (and only) really good solo Tasmanian adventure.

Follow Taz as he leaves the Yosemite Sam Zoo.

You’ll be breaking wanted posters and beating up the Taz Hunters on your way to freedom.

The gameplay is a bit clunky here and there, but the game more than makes up for it from a visual perspective. It’s a delightful title for Taz fans.

8. Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster’s Bad Dream (2002)

Available on Game Boy Advance

Rather than another platformer, the team behind TTA: Buster’s Bad Dream went the extra mile to create a combo-based fighter with a lot more action than the average Looney Tunes title.

You will play as Buster as he tries to stop his bad dreams by beating up the bad ones. Thanks to the game’s ‘Partner System’, you will be joined by Babs, Plucky, Fifi la Fume and many others.

The game was released exclusively in Europe, but copies of a canceled NA release titled “TTA: Scary Dreams” entered the market in late 2005.

7. Looney Tunes Racing (2000)

Available on PlayStation / GBC

If you want to create a good cartoon bond, back to basics is recommended, and go-kart racers are a tried and true way to show off a large cast like the Looney Tunes.

LTR is a cheeky clone of Mario Kart, but some interesting new ideas are added to the mix.

Just drive through an ACME gag trigger arc and watch a loser get crushed by a giant hammer.

Just remember that ACME products tend to backfire.

The chaos and violence inherent in a go-kart racer seem to fit in perfectly with Warner’s wacky characters.

6. Looney Tunes: Space Race (2000)

Available on Dreamcast / PS2

While PlayStation owners played Looney Tunes Racing, those with the privilege of owning a Dreamcast could turn up the heat with Looney Tunes: Space Race.

This IN SPACE kart racer seeks to differentiate itself from Looney Tunes Racing and the rest of the competition with fantastic graphics and gorgeous location design.

You can ride a rocket carrot like Bugs or pilot a helicopter like Yosemite Sam and race on varied tracks ranging from futuristic cities to the asteroid belt.

If you want a game that stays visually to this day, Space Race is a dream come true, as long as you stick with the DC version.

5. Looney Tunes: Cartoon Director (2008)

Available on Nintendo DS

I love rhythm games.

And it’s only fair that a franchise with “Tunes” in its name has at least one.

Cartoon Conductor asks you to provide the musical background of the classic Looney Tunes cartoons after Taz destroys the original recordings.

It has remarkable animation and sound quality for a DS game.

Playing iconic episodes like The Seville Rabbit can be as exciting as Welcome to the Jungle from Guns n Roses on Guitar Hero.

4. Looney Tunes: Sheep Raider (2001)

Available on PlayStation

My little sister used to watch mesmerized while playing Metal Gear Solid V as a child.

I even let her play once, but unsurprisingly, sneaking through Afghanistan proved too complex for the would-be player.

If you want to introduce the younger generation to stealth gaming, dust off your PlayStation and get started with Sheep Raider.

Take control of Ralph Wolf, Will E. Coyote’s underrated cousin, and do your best to steal sheep from Sam Sheepdog.

The game features fabulous cell-shaded graphics that would have been nice for an early PS2 title. It’s challenging and fun, and the stealth mechanics are pretty cool.

3. Bugs Bunny lost in time (1999)

Available on PC / PlayStation

Platformer games are the preferred genre for cartoon ties, and Lost in Time is the best under the Bugs Bunny belt.

Take control of the famous hare as you explore different time periods, including the Stone Age, the Golden Age of piracy and medieval Europe, all in search of the “time clocks” necessary to return to the present.

Collecting carrots and clocks on all platforming levels may sound like any other platformer ever released.

But the humorous writing and attractive level design of this game set it apart.

Music is also a highlight. It’s catchy and the way it evolves depending on what you’re doing is reminiscent of classic Looney Tunes shorts.

2. Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck (2007)

Available on Nintendo DS

Daffy Duck is written to appear arrogant and unreasonably full of himself, but he has a following all over the world.

Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck bridges the gap between fans and enemies with a game that revolves around torturing Lucas and laughing at his suffering.

The allure of the game comes from Daffy’s hilarious reactions when you turn the light on and off, poke him, throw him, and feed him until he’s about to explode, all through clever use of the touch screen.

There are around 50 minigames to make Lucas lose his mind, so this game will keep you busy for a while.

1. Looney Tunes World of Mayhem (2018)

Available on mobile devices

World of Mayhem is one of the latest and greatest entries in the Looney Tunes video game franchise.

It’s a turn-based action role-playing game in which the team of cartoon characters of your dreams will face off against the evil clones created by Marvin the Martian.

Each character has their own abilities and stats, which makes them shine in different roles.

One of the most important parts of the game is collecting all the characters, and thanks to the long history of the Looney Tunes, there are countless units to recruit.

Hell, the game even features Big Chungus as a playable character.

Talk about staying up to date!
