NEW YORK - Bugs Bunny and his pals are being updated for the future — way in the future.

The WB network will take the famed Looney Tunes characters as models for a new children’s series, “Loonatics,” that will air on Saturday mornings starting this fall. The characters’ descendants — Buzz Bunny and the like — will be superhero action figures for the cartoon set in the year 2772.

The network’s animators have re-imagined Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Wile E. Coyote as sleek new figures for a modern age.

“We all flipped for it,” David Janollari, president of the Kids’ WB, said this week. “We just said, ‘Wow, what a great way to take the classic Looney Tunes franchise that has been huge with audiences for decades and bring it into the new millennium.”’

Janollari said both boys and girls enjoyed the new action figures in test runs of the show. Their parents may be a little surprised, however.

“I think the legacy is intact,” he said. “If anything, it’s an homage to the legacy instead of a destruction of the legacy.”
Link has photos to this travesty.

I want to be open-minded, but having been weaned on Bugs Bunny, and seeing the new characters, this is making my stomach churn.

I saw this back when it first came out, and it took me a while to get over it but I managed somehow. But, you just made me cry all over again. Thanks, jerk.


heh.

Here's a flash animation that might cheer you up: "A New Bunny". Please note "Excessive Audible Explicit Language, Mild Textual Explicit Language, Mild Adult Themes".

LOL. That's awesome. TWhoever did that should do one with all the "new" characters. WB is totally destroying Bugs Bunny and company. I hope the new series sux so badly that it's cancelled and whoever was involved get fired and kicked to the street. This is terrible.

lol... me too, but I was trying to preserve the air of nostalgia for the moment, not point out that, for all my other traits, I can still act like a kid.

Bugs Bunny was overrated. Ta hell with him. Daffy is the most underrated Looney Toon ever. Bugs never said some shit like

Please pass the ketchup I want to fly a kite!

Daffy = G.O.A.T.

Asta!!

Haven't they ever heard the expression "If it ain't broke don't fix it."? Why mess with something that is as timeless as Looney Toons?

So sad. As so many others I grew up on these cartoons and to see this done is a travesty! At least I have the dvds to keep me happy. I still laugh at the jokes and gags to this day. Without Looney Toons how would I know my classical music??? Or that the Acme company is not to be trusted at all? Or that a giant mass of orange hair would wear white sneakers?? Will the new versions of these cartoons teach our kids stuff like this? I think not.

Acme might stay... but really, would you want to see Wiley Coyote use the high-powered "Acme Road Runner Sniper Rifle?" I'll stick with his Rube-Goldberg devices, thank you.

*sighs, goes off to think back on the good ol' days when surreal physics meant Wiley took 4 steps on open air then fell 300 feet and lived, instead of time travel or whatever the hell they have planned

Guilty as charged. That and Rabbit of Seville.

Every time I hear the Barber of Seville (great music), I see Bugs shaving Elmer Fudd and then standing on his head massaging it and then using his big ears to massage his scalp some more. One of my favorite episodes.

As my Engineering Mechanics professor told us, "Cartoons are funny because they break the laws of physics."
