Mike Myers To Voice Shrek Pepe Le Pew

mike myers to voice warner bros character pepe le pew in new movie

If we mention that we think this idea stinks, it's only because Mike Myers will be lending his voice to a skunk!

Now that the Shrek series is over or so they say, Myers has found a new animated character to lend his voice to: Looney Tunes' alum Pepe LePew!

Looks like Warner Bros is trying to breathe new life into their stock of classic characters, such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig. Inneresting that they decided to go with a more obscure character first.

After making $1.2 billion for Dreamworks Animaton with Shrek, it's no surprise that Warner would take interest in Myers to voice a CGI version of Pepe Le Pew.

Much like Who Framed Roger Rabbit or Avatar, the majority of the film will be shot in live action, with only Le Pew and his love interest, Penelope Pussycat, to be CGI characters.

Do U think a movie about the Warner Bros skunk smells like a good idea?

Looney Tunes Is Returning To Its Roots!

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??
