I told you rabbits aren't very bright.
~ Cecil's prediction of the rabbits being dim-witted.
Oh, Speedy.
~ Cecil to Bugs.
Uh, hey... uh, Speedy. Uh... What... Kept ya?
~ Cecil to Bugs when revealing he reached the finish line first.
Hello, operator. Give me Chester Turtle. Hello, Chester. Cecil. (Chester: Oh, what do you say, Cece?) Chad, you know that slicker rabbit I made a 10 dollar bet well? (Chester: Yeah?) Well, the sucker just left here. Call the boys and tell them to be ready when he comes by. Give them the works.
~ Cecil calling Chester to contact their other cousins to fool Bugs.

Cecil Turtle is a recurring antagonist from the Looney Tunes franchise. He is a trickster turtle that serves as a occasionally advisory for Bugs Bunny, often racing him in plays on "The Tortoise and the Hare" fable.

Cecil serves as one of the main antagonists of The Looney Tunes Show, where he is a customer service representative and con artist in contrast to his earlier depictions in the classic cartoons. He is also the central antagonist of the 2015 film Looney Tunes: Rabbit's Run.


Cecil was challenged by Bugs into a race for 10 dollars. Cecil secretly cheated by calling his identical cousins to fool Bugs and win the race.

Later, Cecil was challenged by Bugs to a rematch which Cecil literally tricked Bugs of turtles’ modern designs for the dim-witted Rabbit gangsters mistakenly thought of Bugs as a turtle, while Cecil used a rabbit disguise to fool the Rabbit gangsters knowing rabbits aren't very bright. He won yet again.

Cecil was later challenged by Bugs to yet another race. But he used his rocket shell until he sees the speed limit and won by default while Bugs was disqualified and arrested by two police officers.

The Looney Tunes Show

Cecil is a villainous customer service representative and con artist in this series. Every Monday, he picks a customer of Visitron Cable and turns off their cable. He then waits for the customer to call and then he makes the process very painful including telling them someone will be there somewhere between 8:00 P\AM and 6:00 PM (the whole day) and then when the customer goes to the bathroom he knocks on their door and runs away leaving a sign that they missed him. However, he is eventually fired by Daffy Duck after coming in late and because he's the only employee left.

Cecil later reveals that he is an even worse character, ready to con people out of their money, by faking injuries and wearing a cracked shell, then tricking the people into handing over all their money. He was even apparently willing to murder to cover his secret. However, he was stopped by getting slingshot by Daffy's recliner (it was sold and then bought by Cecil), cracking his real shell into a wall, claiming that he has two cracked shells. Though he is arrested, he leaves vowing revenge on Bugs for ruining and ending his entire false injuries con spree.

Looney Tunes: Rabbits Run

Cecil also appears as a central antagonist in Rabbits Run. He has two goons or bodyguards, until he is dismayed to find out that they are Instant Martians in disguise, working for Marvin. He is another craver for Lola's invisibility spray. He kidnapped Lola during the film and probably does not even mind to kill her along if he's going get paid for it.


I gotta say, Cecil, you're a criminal mastermind.
~ Bugs Bunny showing Cecil's evil personality.
Oh, did I say there was good news? Mwah-ha-ha!
~ Cecil Turtle



  • He was fired from his job at Visitron Cable by Daffy, who in turn was fired for firing everybody. He was the only employee at Vistron Cable who deserved and had a reason to get fired because he was turning off Bugs' cable for no reason but his own sadistic fun.
  • Like Daffy Duck, he can be considered a foil to Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs tricked him and got his cable turned back on shortly before getting fired by Daffy.
  • In the original shorts, Cecil competed against Bugs in races and outsmarted Bugs to win. Unlike today, Cecil succeeded with his plans back then, as that was part of the story of The Tortoise and Hare in the Aesop storybooks. He's the only character ever beaten and outsmarted Bugs Bunny three times in a row.
  • Cecil ended up being the inspiration for Tyrone Turtle in Tiny Toon Adventures.
  • Cecil sometimes has a face that looks like The Grinch's face.
