The Crusher is a brutish boxer in 1948's "Rabbit Punch" and a professional wrestler in 1951's "Bunny Hugged" (directed by Chuck Jones). He was voiced by the late Billy Bletcher in "Rabbit Punch" and John T. Smith in "Bunny Hugged". Crusher also appeared in a Tiny Toon Adventures episode, featuring two songs by They Might Be Giants: "Particle Man" (as a wrestler) and "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" (as a henchman).
Crusher also had a cameo role in "Carrotblanca" as a doorman, and appeared in an episode in The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries titled "Rasslin' Rhapsody". He also appeared in two episodes of Duck Dodgers, voiced by John DiMaggio. Crusher appeared in the web show "Fast Food" on looneytunes.com.
In 2003's film, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, The Crusher makes a cameo as one of the judges on DJ's stunt performance. He even appears in the video game based on it.
Crusher was a boss character in the Super NES video game Bugs Bunny Rabbit Rampage. During the fight, various Warner Brothers characters are in the audience, with Pepé Le Pew waving a pennant which reads "Crusher".
Crusher's outward brutish appearance defines his character as a common lout. His behavior also stems from anger issues as seen on The Looney Tunes Show in an episode titled "Jailbird and Jailbunny" as an inmate serving a sentence for an unknown crime (note: this show is non-canon to the original Looney Tunes shorts, so the imprisonment is not part of the original shorts).
- Real-life wrestler Reginald Lisowski would later start using this exact ring name in the late 1950s and would keep it for the remainder of his career. The American Wrestling Association, where Lisowski often wrestled, used a masked competitor called The Masked Terror, like Bugs Bunny's wrestling persona when he wrestled The Crusher in "Bunny Hugged", from 1963 and 1964
