Warner Bros’ Looney Tunes - merchandise badge (1987)

Looney Tunes are a series of animated cartoons produced by Warner Bros Entertainment Inc. since 1929 and feature many well-known characters, including those on this badges. The badge would have been part of the huge range of Looney Tunes merchandise sold through the Warner Bros. retail stores, but whose outlets throughout the UK and Ireland closed in 2004.

 

The badge features the Warner bros. logo and the popular Looney Tune characters; Sylvester Cat, Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny and Tweety Bird. Typical of official Warner bros merchandise, such items were of high quality but would have been pricey.
