- " Grrrr!"
- —Crusher's usual catchphrase
Crusher is a character in The Looney Tunes Show.
Crusher first appeared in "Jailbird and Jailbunny", as a jail inmate. He is shown to hold a grudge against Bugs and Daffy for unknown reasons, possibly because they called him "neanderthal-shaped head man" many times throughout the episode. He tries to punch Bugs for insulting him, while they were eating. He doesn't however and plays innocent, after it is revealed that the guards were watching. Later on, Crusher chases Bugs and Daffy off of a cliff, thus being the reason they had became on the lam. Near the end of the episode (after Bugs and Daffy are released from jail after being caught), Daffy tells Crusher that he will miss him the most, which causes Crusher to growl in anger.
In To Bowl or Not to Bowl, Crusher is shown at the beach in the Merrie Melodie, "Yellow Bird", where he is shown caring for a young girl (possibly his daughter or niece). He also starts a conflict with Sylvester in the song, since Sylvester destroyed the young girl's sandcastles, ruined his ice cream and made him crash into the girls and castles. Also, he seems to like sexy ladies when one bikini-clad girl walked by him only to make him feel infatuated.
He appears again in the episode "Mr. Weiner", where he was the hot dog eating champion for years running. His streak ended after Daffy cheated to win the contest. However, after it was revealed that he had cheated, Crusher got his title back.
