    Gangster in a number of Friz Freleng cartoons who usually, but not always, had a goofy, dumb sidekick named Mugsy. Rocky was very short, with an enormous hat almost as big as he was, a tough, hard-boiled voice, and an ever-present cigarette.

    Filmography (all Freleng):

        Golden Yeggs (1950) -- with a gang, but without Mugsy
        Catty Cornered (1953) -- with Nick, not Mugsy
        Bugs and Thugs (1954)
        Bugsy and Mugsy (1957)
        The Unmentionables (1963)
