      "In a world of rascally rabbits, megalomaniacal ducks, and stuttering pigs, what defines greatness? This question was posed to thousands of cartoon fans, historians, and animators to create The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons, the definitive Looney Tunes collection. Evaluated on their comedic brilliance, innovative animation, historical significance, and creative merit, cartoon historian Jerry Beck and the Cartoon Brew team of animation experts reveal the amusing anecdotes and secret origins behind such classics as “What's Opera, Doc?,” “One Froggy Evening,” and “Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century.” Featuring more than 300 pieces of original art from private collectors and the Warner Bros. archives, The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons settles the debate on the best of the best, and poses a new question: Is your favorite one of the greatest?"
      —Description from the back of the book.

      The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons is a 2010 book authored and edited by Jerry Beck. As the title states, it covers a list of one hundred of the greatest Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, hand picked by fans of the series. Jerry quipped on one forum that he felt the book should have been called The 100 Looney Tunes You Must See, implying that there are far more great shorts that didn't make it.

      The list features a wide output from seven of the original directors: 37 Chuck Jones shorts, 21 Bob Clampett shorts, 21 Friz Freleng shorts, seven Frank Tashlin shorts, six Tex Avery shorts, six Robert McKimson shorts, and two Art Davis shorts.
