Looney Tunes Is Returning To Its Roots!

| Filed under: TV News

We think can get behind this! Especially because they're not trying to butcher it with a shiteous CGI revamp!

The beloved cartoon classic Looney Tunes is getting a new, updated series very much in the vein of the original, called The Looney Tunes Show!

The 26-episode series, premiering on Cartoon Network in the fall, will feature five to six minute shorts featuring all the original characters - including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Marvin the Martian, etc. - and intercut with "Merry Melodies" and two minute Road Runner chases! The show will also rely on the wise-cracking jokes and slapstick humor found in the old cartoons!

Peter Roth, president of Warner Brothers Television, says:

“We talked at great length about whether we were audacious enough to take on such iconic treasures. It’s both costly and risky, but I think an extraordinary opportunity. We want to reinvigorate the brand with the best possible execution — high-quality, high-end state of the art.”

We think they're on the right track!

What do U think?? Will this version of the Looney Tunes catch on with the new generation of kids??

    Are you kidding! It is time they brought back these iconic characters! Looney Tunes are the best! They brought up our generation! I would much rather my child watch Bugs Bunny being a cross-dresser than Wow-Wow Wubbzy ANYDAY!

    Looney Tunes can never be the same with all the "rules" cartoons have now……i feel bad for today's kids, they'll never know what good cartoons really are……

    I love the idea. I hope they can execute it. I have a 1 yr old and would love for him to grow up watching good cartoons like Looney Tunes. I Personally loved Tiny Tunes and Animaniacs growing up.

    What made Looney Tunes REALLY funny in the 30's, 40's and 50's was that they COULD BE politically incorrect and get away with it. Anyone honestly think they could get away with that TODAY? Oh hell no, can't offend ANYONE nowadays. Let it be.

    I don't think that the production co will be able to pull it off. The original cartoons were not meant to be t.v. fodder for youngsters (they were short features preceding films, meant for a broader age range). In order to succeed, the new cartoons would have to be geared toward an adult audience somewhat, more like The Simpsons, South Park or Family Guy. However, I still doubt it would work, since the characterizations of Bugs, et al. closely relate to the subcultures and characterizations of people from a different era. You can't really "re-make" something like that effectively, since everyone and the current culture is simply quite different.

    Tiny Toons, I loved. Looney Tunes? The most amazingly BORING show ever. I think people are just being nostalgic with it; no way hitting people with mallets will entertain the current generations.
