- For another arthurian versions, please see King Arthur (disambiguation)
King Arthur is serious and important ruler of Camelot. He does not appreciate his knights' cowardliness or Bugs Bunny annoying him. Arthur can take remarks seriously from any jesters, and makes them do tasks that they must succeed.
Arthur has fair skin, white hair and mustache, gold crown, red shirt with a gold outline of the inverted triangle, purple pants and shoes.
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.
Arthur relies on his knights, but he becomes unhappy when they chicken out of going on a quest to rescue his Singing Sword.
Arthur can sometimes find him annoying, but he is grateful to send Bugs on his task to retrieve the Singing Sword from the Black Knight. Failure to do so< and the King will have Bugs put to the rack, burnt at the stake, and beheaded.
- [agreeing with Bugs Bunny's remark] A very good idea, fool. Unless you bring back the Singing Sword, you will be put to the rack, burnt at the stack, and, beheaded!
