This deck is a far cry from either the series of USPCC Looney Tunes decks or the more recent decks produced by Aquarius. This is an inexpensive souvenir item, printed in Hong Kong and sold at Six Flags amusement parks. However, it contains one of the strangest details I've ever seen on a Looney Tunes licensed item. There are 16 characters depicted on the card backs, and each is given a descriptive noun or adjective; Marvin Martian is "alienated," Tweety is an "agitator," etc. But then you notice that Granny is labeled a "cougar." Granny, Tweety's owner, a cougar? Did the designer of these cards interpret Granny pulverizing Sylvester with a broom as some sort of erotic, seductive act? On what planet? My only explanation for this inexplicable categorization is that whoever designed this deck mistook the Warner Bros. Granny character for the man-hungry older woman character in many of the mid-1940s Tex Avery MGM cartoons featuring Wolfie and variations on the Red Hot Riding Hood showgirl. As an item in my collection, this deck is a good reminder that some of the people designing card decks don't have any idea what they're doing.
