Some things just ain't right. Warner Brothers is "updating" some of the classic Looney Tunes characters...Bugs, Daffy, Taz, Roadrunner, Wile E., and (relative newcomer) Babs...into the "edgy" futuristic super-hero types you see above. Not cool. (Yeah, I'm an unyielding traditionalist/grumpy old fogey about some things...and I'm okay with that.)
"Loonatics" (working title) is scheduled to debut this fall.
Thank the universe that the classic Looney Tunes cartoons are being given the deluxe DVD treatment they deserve (two great collections thus far)...kids (of all ages) deserve to be able enjoy and appreciate the real deal and not this marketing department/focus group/"wouldn't it be cool if..." pretender to the throne.
(And yes, I know...it's only a cartoon and it probably will not work and it's not the end of the world if it does...I just had to have my say and now I have and I'm done :-)
