Coyote with his obsessive pursuit of the Roadrunner and Pepe Le Pew with his outsize libido.

 Don Markstein's Toonopedia: Claude Cat
The first glimmerings of Claude can be seen in The Aristo-Cat (released June 12, 1943), in which a pair of freshly-introduced rodents, Hubie & Bertie, convinced the poor creature, who had never dealt with mice before, that a bulldog was his natural prey.
The design was wrong (this was a fl and white kitty, who physically resembled several earlier ones with non-descript characterization), but the personality was right, and Mel Blanc, who created the voices of everybody from Daffy Duck to Marvin Martian, already had his voice down pat.
After that, Claude went on to a minor career in which he occasionally teamed up with Hubie & Bertie, and occasionally did so with even more minor Chuck Jones stars, such as Marc Antony and a frisky puppy known only as Frisky Puppy.

In the late '40s, and especially after forming a full-time partnership with gag man Michael Maltese, Jones hit his stride as a director.
There was some indication in the early '50s that his well would dry up -- he retired some of his funniest characters, like the scheming mice Hubie and Bertie, to concentrate on the most formulaic characters (Pepe Le Pew, the Road Runner) -- but on the whole, his cartoons earned all the praise they've received.
The trouble is that the brilliant period didn't last very long; a definite decline began in the mid-'50s.

As for the basketball game between the Tunes and the no-longer-mini "Mon-stars", it shows some imagination, especially with Hubie and Bertie the mice as P.A. announcers and the final-play sequence involving Murray as a walk-on.
I suppose this looked like a slam dunk on release, given how huge Jordan was in the '90s and a time when classic Looney Tunes weren't too easy to find.

Wrapping up the discussion of this Looney Tunes set, let me pause to sing the praises of one oft-overlooked character I love, Claude Cat.
Two of this neurotic feline's shorts are included on the set: "Cheese Chasers" and "Mouse Wreckers." In both shorts, poor Claude is tormented by mice Hubie and Bertie, and driven to gulp down copious amounts of Nerve Tonic.
I always found Claude to be the most "cat like" of all the Looney Tunes cats, and perhaps I even identified with the poor guy a little.

One of the goals in drawing is to achieve an object working in pure space.
Barrier: I want to get back to the Road Runner in a little while, but still on stylized animation, I’ve heard that your Aristo-cat (1943) with Hubie and Bertie the mice drew protests from theater owners who felt that they were being short-changed with an unfinished picture, because of its highly stylized backgrounds.
But the backgrounds were stylized, and we were trying for pretty dramatic stuff.
