Looney TV: Bugsy & Mugsy (1957)

Near the end of the 50's, Bugs Bunny needed some new adversaries.

Enter a gangster wannabe named Rocky and his dumb-as-a-doorknob sidekick, Mugsy. Friz Freleng introduced them in a 1957 short that had the crooks taking refuge in a condemned house that Bugs himself had just moved into.

Rating: A-.

I think Rocky & Mugsy were introduced earlier - in the short, "Bugs & Thugs".

Nevertheless, Rocky & Mugsy were decent foils for Bugs.

I think you're right about that, but here, they're treated as if this was their first go-round.
