Looney Tunes Bells

In 1988, the New England Collectors Society put out a set of little collectible bells called the Looney Tunes Classics Silverplated Bell Collection. They were available to collectors as a mail-away subscription (one of those one-per-month deals, apparently). They also did a series of Walt Disney characters around the same time. The thing that has baffled me about the Looney Tunes collection was the totally random characters that were selected. Sure, you had Bugs, Daffy, Porky, Foghorn, Road Runner, Speedy, Sylvester and Yosemite Sam... but they also did miniature bells of Merlin Mouse, Mrs. Elmer Fudd (from "Don't Axe Me"), Claude Cat, Hippety Hopper, Honey Bunny, Granny, Slowpoke and most baffling of all... (as Matthew stated below)...

Lo, the Poor Indian... !?

Talk about obscure!

The ones I listed are the ones I know exist, not sure if there were more or not (no idea how Lo got the bell-treatment over, say, Tweety or Coyote or Elmer). Images on the web are rare (they sometimes pop up for sale on eBay). If you have images of any other of these things send us an e-mail.
