On Thursday, the time-honored animated series, Looney Toons, left its viewers perplexed with a bewildering tribute to Bugs Bunny on their Twitter feed. This tribute showed Bugs Bunny in various female costumes, with Looney Toons dubbing it as “drag.”
The inclusion of drag in a children’s series like Looney Toons has raised eyebrows and caused many to question the intentions behind it. Moreover, it sparked considerable outrage among those who see it as the latest ploy by Hollywood executives to further infuse left-leaning ideologies and LGBT narratives into children’s content.
In a rather audacious post, Looney Tunes went on to write, “Happy Pride, get your drag on.” A message that, for many, only fuels the belief that the agenda is to nudge children toward certain social ideologies under the guise of entertainment.

Bugs Bunny’s comical adventures have often seen him adopting various disguises, both male and female. Historically, these instances were simply clever antics aiming to evoke laughter from the sheer silliness of the situation, not to portray a drag queen image.
However, Looney Tunes appears to be falling in line with an increasing number of children’s entertainment brands that are now choosing to promote LGBT culture and drag queen nightclub lifestyle. It seems to be a deliberate attempt to establish these elements as normal in the minds of young, impressionable viewers.
This growing trend, seen by some as an attempt to further progressive ideologies through children’s content, has raised significant concerns among those who question the direction children’s programming is taking, and it leaves many apprehensive about what could possibly follow.
