Uhhhh,...the artists who actually created those classic Looney Tunes, such as Chuck Jones, Maurice Noble, Mike Maltese, Ken Harris, etc. were unanimous in their disgust of Leon Schlesinger and (especially) Edward Selzer.

Those two executives mainly thwarted the artists, rather than enabling them.

I seem to remember a story about Mel Blanc basing his Daffy Duck voice on Schlesinger. I could be wrong here but didn't Blanc do it as kind of a goof and when Schlesinger finally heard it he said "Thath the funniesth goddamn voith i've ever heard!"
