People celebrate the 'Looney Tunes' Instagram account acknowledging Bugs-Daffy romance

The account set things off by sharing a short video compilation of some adorable interactions between the two characters.

They've made it official! No, I'm not talking about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. I'm referring to the more than 90-year partnership between Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Longtime fans of the dynamic duo were thrilled last week when the official Looney Tunes Instagram account appeared to confirm something about the pair that many had suspected for years. I am, of course, alluding to the potentially flirtatious undertones of the long-running friendship-cum-rivalry between Bugs and Daffy that worshippers have lovingly dubbed "Baffy."



 

The official Instagram account of the animated comedy more or less confirmed the possibility of a Bugs/Daffy romance on July 11 by sharing a short video compilation of some adorable interactions between the two characters, including moments like dances, laughs and flirtatious glances. "Did someone say baffy?" the profile captioned the post. Whoever is managing the account also went on a commenting spree of replying to the excited responses of overjoyed Baffy fans. Here are some of their responses that appeared to further solidify the fan theories.

The official acknowledgment of "Baffy" took a life of its own when someone reposted the Instagram comments to Tumblr, where they quickly went viral. "Baffy is canon" soon become the site’s #1 trending topic with long-term Baffy shippers feeling vindicated.



 



 



 



 

It didn't take long for those previously unaware of the fandom to discover the wealth of pre-existing Baffy fanart and the headcanon that Bugs and Daffy are the adoptive parents of the Warner siblings from Animaniacs. 



 

Here are some "Baffy" fanart and memes that have popped up on the platform:
