  • Save our Looney Tunes!

    Have you guys heard of Warner Bros. plans to re-invent the classic Looney Tunes characters into something called the Lunatics...dark evil-looking cartoon characters 700 years in the future?

    They're kinda scary looking. Here's a pic if you haven't seen the designs yet:


    There is a petition asking Warner Bros. to not 'reinvent' them. It's
    http://www.saveourlooneytunes.com. I believe since this petition has been on line that Warner Bros. has actually said they're going to redo the above characters and make them 'bit softer'. I think that they should stay the same.

    If they want a cartoon to take place 700 years in the future, then they can create new characters for it.

    What do YOU think?

    I think it is a horrible idea. My kids love Looney Toons as much as they love the new cartoon characters.

    I cannot imagine why they feel there is a market for this type of garbage.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

      You make it sound like if they go forward they can never go back? Whats to say it won't be a quick fun romp, further developing chracters that are easily accessible to a mainstream audience? Great example of a posistive spin similar to this was "Batman Beyond" it yielded mixed results but was mostly well accepted and just a fun lark that no one accepted as perment.

        But why even 'redevelop' characters that already work and are accepted and loved by all? There's no reason to change what already works.

        I can see them maybe doing this series with brand new characters that no one knows about yet, but changing the familiar faces of Taz, Wile. E. Coyote and especially Bugs and Daffy - I don't see the reasoning, not even for a little while.

          You mean like Tiny Toons or Duck Dodgers?

            This is old news, regarding the coming of the Loonatics. There's a parody at Newgrounds with lots of cursing that's freaking hilarious. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/223809
            It sorta shows that despite being all "EXTREME!!!111!!!", the new Bugs is just evil and lame.

              I don't have to watch this. I've got the classics on DVD. As soon as they can top those, I'll watch.
              Is that possible? I don't think anyone thinks so.

                  according to AICN, the main character's name is Buzz Bunny which has already led to some trouble for little kids who search for that on the internet. i guess theres an "adult" product with the same name...so the kids are accidentally clicking things and losing innocence...

                    Well I'm against the change as well. If they're trying to copy anime they might as well try to turn on a TV with a balloon.

                    Although the road runner looks extremely cool in my opinion and would do nicely if it were just a teensy bit modified and shown as a completely new character

                      Tiny Toons was different than this in that it shows the 'regular' characters as themselves, only little and not scary.

                      The 'Lunatics' are a reworking or reinventing of the original Looney Tunes. And they look evil.

                      And yes, I am aware that this subject to some people is 'old news'. I've known about it for a while. This wasn't an announcement. I was just asking people's opinions.

                        Okay, first of all, loved the parody link. Sadly, the character voicing is even worse in real life... I saw a clip on the Sunday Morning show back, like on Easter, I think it was, and it was deep and gravelly. You know that movie announcer who does the voiceover on, like, 75% of the movies out there? Imagine that voice with the scary bugs.

                        Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                          They are supposed to be the descendants. Something like great grandchildren I think... Anywho, I've never really been a fan of Looney Tunes, and it's not like they've made any NEW Looney Tunes cartoons in 40 years, so why not welcome the "new" characters?

                            Anyone remember the Star Trek 'mirror universe'? Where there were evil counterparts to all the crew members? Kinda leaves me with that feeling....and not in any sort of good way either.

                              They can go ahead and ruin their cartoon if they want. :confused:

                                This is so stupid. If they were releasing a show about "Loonatics"(wtf?), then that would be fine. The fact that they want to replace the old Bugs with Buzz is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Thank god Disney only translated some characters into CGI- they're still cute... Could you imagine Maniac Mouse instead of Mickey with devil eyes, sharp/pointed yellow shoes and claws instead of gloves??

                                  wow that newgrounds thing DOES swear alot o_o (no longer will I ever feel guilty about posting VGcats links)


                                  I noticed that the movie did mention anime and that reminds me that it seems that alot of american shows are trying to imitate the style of anime a bit or at least beef up the darkness to compete

                                  I really wish that instead they could take the good things from anime but still do them in american style

                                  it seems like everyones forgetting their origional style that makes them unique

                                  I'm starting to go on anime overload and if I wanted anime I'd watch REAL anime not american rip off darkness

                                  not to say that the Looney toons shouldn't try newer looks but really o_O this is too much like some of that batman stuff they do when they want him to look animeish to fit with a programming block that is half imported from Japan

                                      Here's a sequel to the original spoof with the redesigned Ace Bunny. There's a link at the end with pics of the redesigns. Still looks crappy though...

                                        Probably still won't watch them. Instead, I'll watch the unedited versions of the old ones on my DVD box.
                                        Regardless of what they look like, they'll still need the required "attitude" of the old (pre-1960 or so) cartoons. Making fun of Hollywood and such.
                                        I didn't like the looks of the Animaniacs when they first came out, but when I started watching them, I was amazed at the amount of "industry" jokes that would fly over children's heads.
