The Gashouse Gorillas is a group of characters in Looney Tunes.
They first appeared in "Baseball Bugs" as the main antagonists. When Bugs Bunny was watching a pathetically mismatched baseball game between the Tee Totallers and the Gashouse Gorillas, he was so incensed by the Gorillas’ arrogance and foul play that he claimed he could defeat them all by himself. The Gorillas accepted his challenge and therefore had the rabbit play for the entire Tee Totallers team, but Bugs still managed to win in a 96-95 victory which ended when Bugs caught a fly ball that had flown for several miles.
Though the Gashouse Gorillas did not appear in "Gone Batty", the Greenville Goons' designs and characterizations are based on them and they portrayed a role similar to them.
After a 75-year absence, recently they reappeared in the Looney Tunes Cartoons episode "Pitcher Porky", this time serving as the brutish baseball rivals team for Porky Pig and Daffy Duck's baseball team.
A bunch of cocksure brutes that thought no one could defeat them in a ball game, especially when they used their muscle and violence to intimidate the umps to call so many plays falsely in their favor. When they found their winning streak threatened, they resorted to using huge trees as a bat.
