King Arthur is a character an important figure in English mythology, where he appears as the ideal of kingship both in war and peace. He is the central in a cycle of legends known as the Matter of Britain. Although there has been debate over whether King Arthur might in fact have existed, like Robin Hood, he is generally considered a figure of myth and folklore, but one closely tied to both the literature and political history of Britain. Arthur and the Arthurian legends in general (including such figures as the wizard Merlin, Guinevere, and Lancelot), have often been portrayed, spoofed, or referenced in Warner Bros. Animation productions.

Appearances

Looney Tunes

At the beginning of the short Knighty Knight Bugs, King Arthur discusses with the knights of how his Singing Sword was stolen by the Black Knight (Yosemite Sam). When the knights refuse to go out to retrieve it, due to their fear of the Black Knight and his dragon, Arthur becomes angry at their cowardice, thinking that they are chicken and only dismayed when he sees chicken feathers. Bugs Bunny, the court jester, dances in and remarks that only a fool would go after it. Arthur improves the idea and forces Bugs to go after the sword or else he will be executed (put to the rack, burnt at the stake and beheaded). Bugs then laughs it off but starts crying after realizing that Arthur is serious. Arthur isn't seen again for the rest of the cartoon after this scene.

Quest for Camelot

In the beginning of the film, an 15 year old Arthur stepped up to the magic stone and pulls out Excalibur and becomes the rightful king and established Camelot.

Later on, Arthur becomes a 25 Year old man and lets the knights in his castle for a meeting where Ruber sneaks in and demands more land, Arthur and the other knights (including Sir Lionel) refused to give it to him. Furious, Ruber pulled out a mace, and attacks the knights. Ruber struck Sir Lionel in the chest and killed him, defeats some of the knights and made a lunge for Arthur. But Ruber was eventually struck down by the magic sword Excalibur held by Arthur. Later, Arthur gave Sir Lionel's shield to Lady Julianna before mourning for Sir Lionel's Death.

10 years later, after the death of Sir Lionel, A griffin breaks in, interrupting Arthur and his knights' meeting. Arthur makes an slow move to grab Excalibur, but the Griffin grabs the sword with its beak, violently wounding Arthur's arm and breaking his chair in process. Later, Merlin treats Arthur's wounds by putting his arm in a sling, When Arthur hears that Excalibur hasn't been found, he vows to find the sword himself, But Merlin (worried about Arthur's strength) forbids it and when the King asks Merlin that anything that his magic can do but Merlin answers him that he must rely on the courage of his people.

Later, One of Arthur's knights tells Arthur that Julianna has payed a visit (which is actually Ruber using her to get himself inside Camelot to take over and start a riot), Arthur heads down to the round table tower unaware that the fight had already broke out outside his castle. When he reaches the Round Table, Ruber had turned up, ready to overthrow Arthur with Excalibur (which he had melded it to his arm for Ruber to hold it forever). Ruber had many attempts to try and strike Arthur but keeps striking the table. Before Ruber can kill him, Kayley saves Arthur by swinging down with a wooden beam and knocks Ruber out of the window into the courtyard. Arthur's arm is quickly healed by the magical wave as Ruber disintegrated by the stone, Arthur steps outside and draws Excalibur from the stone and was now back in right hands of Arthur.

Arthur then knights Kayley and Garrett as knights of the round table for their bravery and realizes that the kingdom's strength is not based on the strength of the king alone.
