According to Hollywood Reporter, the Cartoon Network is releasing a new version of Looney Tunes.
“The Looney Toons Show” will star Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, along with Yosemite Sam, Tweety, Sylvester — the whole gang. Weirdly, the network is having each episode as a half-hour story along with “cartoons within a cartoon.” The concept takes Bugs and Daffy out of the woods (awww) and puts them into the suburbs (arrrh!) with “colorful neighbors.” You would think in the age of YouTube, re-embracing the show’s original seven-minute short-form format would be the smart play here instead of trying for a weekly version of “Desperate Houseduck.”
Other new programming includes:
“MAD,” based on MAD Magazine. The animated sketch-comedy, “utilizing a chaotic mix of animation styles and twisted humor to pull back the curtain and expose the truth behind movies, TV shows, games, pop culture and, of course, curtains!”
Robotomy, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, Young Justice, Run It Back Sunday and Cartoon Network’s Hall of Game.
