Looney Goons

Today I was searching the internwebz looking for more info on the upcoming Warner Bros. Animation series Wabbit: A Looney Tunes Production, set to debut on Cartoon Network in 2015. A poster on a message board I’m on linked to an article about the show on Animation Scoop. I was curious to read what my fellow animation enthusiasts were saying about Wabbit, so I checked the comments page, and to my surprise I discovered that nearly all of the comments were people hating on The Looney Tunes Show. Seriously? To these people I just have 3 words:

Come on, people. It’s been around 6 months since TLTS’s cancellation was announced, and people are STILL passing out Haterade about that show? Was TLTS really that bad? Enough already. I agree TLTS wasn’t great, but it’s done now. Time to move on. We’ve got a new Looney Tunes series on the way, which is set to NOT be a copy of TLTS. Let me count the ways:
  • The show will contain 4 shorts per episode. So it’s NOT going to be another sitcom.
  • Bugs will be going up against Barbarians, Ninjas, and Terminators. See? Bugs will be outwitting foes again. NOT like TLTS.
  • Taz will be featured, but he will now be known as Theadore Tasmanian. He will work in the accounting department and is repressing his true wild and crazy self. OK, this sounds kind of LTS-esque, but it could possibly work. He won’t, however, be a pet like on TLTS.
  • Wile E. Coyote is going to be an annoying, know-it-all neighbor. Again, unlike on TLTS. I’m also looking forward to this since Wile E.’s “super-genius” persona has largely been buried in favor of his mute form while chasing the Road Runner.
  • Erik Kuska will be producing the show (he was an animator on Looney Tunes: Back in Action). Not Spike Brandt or Tony Cervone.
  • The show is staying away from cliches (aka no anvils). Fine with me, as long as there are still some toon style gags and old fashioned cartoon chaos.
So how’s about we give cautious optimism a chance and hope that Wabbit will be worth the wait? WB and CN have moved on, how about we do the same? For all those still butt-hurt about The Looney Tunes Show
“I suggest you get over it!”

  1. We have to wait 'til 2015 for Wabbit and the new Scooby-Doo? Aaaaauugghhh!!!!!

    Based on your description, though, Wabbit should be loads of fun, provided CN doesn't screw with it.


  2. A Frozen reference? Oh no, they got you too? Dammit Disney, you bastards!

    On a more serious note, something I'll never understand is haterade. I don't get what's fun about bashing something. Maybe it's because I haven't found something I've truly despised, and it also helps that I don't really take moving pictures or random notes all that seriously, but it's my own belief to promote what you love and ignore what you hate. Reason I don't go on Cartoon Brew anymore.


  3. The only thing sadder than fans still hating on “The Looney Tunes Show” is fans who are still hating on TLTS' version of Lola Bunny. It's kind of ridiculous that the “Space Jam Lola VS TLTS Lola” debate is still going on when TLTS ENDED for good several months ago. I especially don't get why TLTS Lola haters say that they'd rather a Looney Tunes character be boring and bland than be funny. Sense no make.

    Folks, TLTS is done. Warner Brothers has moved from that, I suggest that we all do the same.
