So, I was watching Cartoon Network because they have recently started airing the old Looney Tunes that I'm a big fan of. Then, this 30-second promo came on and my jaw hit the floor. The network execs were only airing the old shows to lead into their new show.

My first reaction was to rage, but after the shock wore off I decided that this could potentially introduce these characters to younger viewers. It doesn't seem necessary to re-imagine Looney Tunes in my opinion.

So, what's up Pit? Will this new show be as good? Does it need to be as good? Will it be a horrible abomination that will wreck your childhood memories?

itl be horrible, cant have any violence and all the adult humor from the originals will be toned down, maybe not even exist at all.

Can I state once and for all that I am ****ING SICK of this horrible Flash-like style that cartoons have nowadays. It was funny with the Powerpuff Girls, kinda worked with Fairly Oddparents, looked kinda stupid with Danny Phantom, looks retarded in the new my Little Pony and looks retarded with this new Loony Toons show.

Hey Cartoon Network, I have this brand new amazing tool that was invented, you might wanna give it a try:



EDIT: and now, to calm my rage, here's "What's Opera Doc":

You guys wanna know the premise?

Bugs and Daffy move out of the woods to room together in the suburbs. The other characters will be their neighbors.

Also, Wille E. Coyote and Roadrunner will have their own CGI shorts and, my personal favorite, there will be two-minute music videos where the characters sing original songs. Of course, they'll be called "Merrie Melodies".

I'm going to fucking stab someone....

It has potential, but I don't trust the modern networks to do it right at all. Part of the charm to, is the nostalgia. It doesn't look like any of that'll make it into the show.

EDIT: Ah, but then I read goaet's post, and realizing that it will be like a horrible animated version of Glee, my hopes went down the tubes.

Agreed. Why can't they just air the originals like they used to. Stupid Liberal corporate childhood ruining bastards.

Old Looney Toons are infinitely better than the new ones will be. That all you have to say.

With the overprotective nature of today's parents, all forms of imitatable violence will be absent from the show. So I doubt it'll be nearly as entertaining.
What? Just because I had a superior taste in comedy as a child then you do now doesn't mean you have to get mad.

Agreed. Looney Tunes was worthless. Important for its time, but currently worthless.

This thread sucks because it's a bunch of 20 year olds complaining that a kids show (that wasn't particularly funny in the first place) isn't going to live up to their expectations.

The year is 2011. I don't see Looney Tunes fitting into this equation.

well, it's been over a decade since Space Jam, they've probably decided it's time to milk the cash cow again and throw out something "modern" and "hip" for the "kids" to like.

The original Looney Tunes wasn't strictly a kids show, it was intended for family entertainment.
