Road Runner, Bugs, Daffy and Popeye - Aren't Disney though, and you didn't mention Woody Woodpecker - I just find ole' Woody a bit too Joe Pesci, but I laughed as a small kid but was always disappointed after about 8 years old.

Disney are the Microsoft of the entertainment world, they got in when there was nothing else to compete with, leveraged what little they had well, to exploit what little they had into more than it seemed.

Their output from the early years hasn't aged well in comparison with Warner Bros.

I don't even think Disney regards Mickey as entertaining anymore, they've not used him for decades, but they're stuck with him as an identifiable mascot.
