Only three episodes left. So don't ask for requests!

So yeah, The Looney Tunes Show....I found the first season to be pretty hit and miss, the only good thing to come out of it was the Merrie Melodies and the Road Runner shorts.

The second season is much better, it comes closer to feeling more like classic Looney Tunes, and even features more characters like Henry the Chicken Hawk, Cecil Turtle, and even Giovanni Jones!
So give the new season a look!

Oh and I like this show's version of Lola more. Give me "funny female" character over "sexy girl power" character any day.

Next episode: Wreck-It Ralph!

I never understood much of the hate for TLTS. xD The changes was a nice and fresh spin on the series, and didn't even -feel- like drastic changes, lol. I still envisioned the LT characters pretty much as they would, just in a different element. I enjoyed all of Season 1, though I need to get a new Disc 2, as the copy I have doesn't seem to work. x.X

I believe the show was hated because of the way it was too different from the classics it lost it's feel, for example the minor character changes such as Taz becoming the dog and Bugs being sardonic, the sitcom style and the character designs change is really uneeded. The real thing I see what was a fresh take was the lack of the offensive material they had to the past.

To be honest, Granted, some of the episodes were rather entertaining, but I don't see why this show needed to be created. There's a pack of over 1,000 WB Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies shorts to watch and enjoy and the cartoons have stood the test of time. The cartoons were made under different circumstances with many talented animators, layout and background artists, not forgetting Mel Blanc and other voice actors, Carl Stalling & Milt Franklyn, any many more people within Termite Terrace.

These are characters with histories and distinct personalities, and shoehorning them into a completely different sitcom style just doesn't work, in my opinion. Why not use the resources to create new characters and new interesting concepts? A good cartoon will always sell itself (Eh, why did the Looney Tunes become popular in the first place?) - you don't need to awkwardly slot well-known characters into styles in which they won't fit very well.  Tiny Toons and Animaniacs do a much better job in capturing the essence of the classics, and they're great cartoons.

As for 'change' - heck, some of the characters did undergo changes in their personality during the classic-era (for example, Daffy). But by the time this show was conceived, some of the characters were over seventy years old! Would you change the Eiffel Tower to attract a younger audience...? Again, why not create new characters?

But eh... cartoons are more of a business than art, which is why we were subjected to festering piles such as "Baby Looney Tunes" and "Loonatics: Unleashed" - at least this show doesn't stoop near to that level.

My two cents.

That makes sense. :)

It's been awhile since my old post, but I guess I enjoyed TLTS. I mean I can definitely see where people were a bit off-put, though Cartoon Brew tended to lend itself to being a bit harsh on it's review. On one hand I did feel that considering how Baby LT and Loonatics wound up being, the sitcom format felt like it could do itself a lot better to LT than falling back on familiar themes of the past. Don't get me wrong, I was raised on Termite Terrance's stuff through VHS tapes and DVDs over time, nothing will ever top the classic 40's era style and grace that put Avery, Jones, Clampett on the map and so forth. :)

On the other hand though, I think the LT characters can be adaptable to a degree to certain situations. :nod: As noted, it was refreshing to me. While the classics will all be there, I don't think at the time - at least from Warner Bros. - felt like they could try to improve on the original formula to make it work. With 'Tom and Jerry' it can be super easy to come up with situations in which the two have to fight, the cat and mouse concept  can be shaped and molded into anything given their cast of characters. But with Looney Tunes, the cast is so wide and diverse, almost akin to a superhero universe.

That's very well-put though. :3 Thank you. :) (I'm glad I wasn't bashed, lol, I probably would've been ripped to shreds. xD)

I see what you mean. "The Luney Toons show" just keeps making me uncomfortable. Most of the episodes, I can't even stand to watch a second time. Because of Daffy Duck. He's a self entered, egotistical, manipulative BASTARD! They've actually made him more of a douche than he was in the '40s. It's gotten so that I'd like to see a cartoon where someone takes Daffy Duck outside and chops off his head. The writers have gone too far this time.
