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)

Well, I'm not forcing you to hate on the show, nor like it. However indeed CB were being very harsh about how the TLTS was gonna look and be like, since the show never came out before hand and never got the chance to get past their jerk-reaction and give it a shot, but overall it's people thought it was awesome and people thought it was bad, but they aren't the only ones, there are plenty more of critics out there who thought the same thing, especially since the release of Wabbit as announced on the blog (blogs.indiewire.com/animations… people were blowing the show right into oblivion, even expressed their hatred towards Jessica Borutski, like death threats, Tony Cervone's pet, etc. I mean it's crazy as Hell.

I really don't like the looks of Baby LT, but for LU confuses me how that show was a bit hated, I kind of liked it because it's basically different characters and a different generations and they are not just using the Looney Tunes to be like Power Rangers and stuff, but until the show in general, people somehow thought the show was awesome because Looney Tunes are "back" in a sitcom style format that makes them live in neighborhoods and such and believes the sitcom is used so it will be a fresh take (which obviously is no such thing as a "Genre" being a fresh take") on the Looney Tunes. If there was any prime examples of other characters we knew in the past meeting generations and have been the same since, is Scooby-Doo! and Tom & Jerry. Sadly they are both the most highest grossing characters than Looney Tunes are, I mean if Looney Tunes could go back to basics to their slapstick comedy roots and meet generations while being the same and acting like the same, they could make a huge living. (Well we have Wabbit, so hopefully we'll see how they top it out)

Well, Looney Tunes can also be easy to come up with situations in which the slapstick comedy and the puns and shenanigans, there just has to be enough of it so it can benefit today very well, but making them toned down in living in suburbias and be in some sitcom format is just a different genre. I mean, points in trying, it really don't work.


NP, sometimes friendly debating with someone is my thing as long if they aren't making such a big deal about it, it happens to plenty of people I debate with before a lot. =p

It's weird how death threats happen to people over something like cartoons. :giggle: And over Looney Tunes too, y'know? xD That was another thing I thought felt so unwarranted, but society is what it is I guess. xD

I still remember the news about LU, lol, it aired the morning I was about to head to school years back. I was in high school at the time, and they interviewed a bunch of children (not so much adults, though it has been years; but I remember one of the kids calling the designs 'evil Bugs Bunny', LOL).

Yeah, same here. :) It's tough to get into good conversations like this, especially deviantArt. I put one blog discussing some other subject and had all sorts of F bombs hurled at me. xD I had to edit it immediately before it got to the point of ridiculousness. I've never had it as close as threats yet, but I saw the warning signs almost immediately. x.x

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.

I don't know why I said that because this comment was old and stuff, but I think what I meant that time was the fact that they showed more nameable guns than any other cartoon out there. I know it's Loony Tunes and they had guns in the old ones and stuff. But still, it just seems weird now.

That's pretty far off. TLTS is more like Seinfeld

Though personally, I like the show. It's not on par with the Classic shorts, but I can't imagine them ever getting there again. Attempts have just lead to cheap knock-offs.

I'm still chuckling at Tuesday's password gag that echoed the old Duck Season Rabbit Season joke without just being it.

You be surprise how bizarre those Classic Shorts really are; what with all the racism,the wacky violence,some references that little kids don't get until they're fully grown and watch the shorts online or television.

Also if you take The Looney Tunes Show replace the ordinary humor of Seinfeld with the surreal humor of South Park and it's basically Regular Show you know random characters doing stupid stuff that leads them into a massive situation.

Either way I'm not a fan of modern day suburban semi retired Looney Tunes Show.

P.S. This is the longest comment I ever done.

I know about the racism and violence. But it really isn't that surprising. It was a different time. Certain things like making fun of those "Nips" were more socially acceptable. Especially during wartime. Plus, they weren't built up just for kids originally.

True, but then you have a different show than what we have now. Plus the general plot of "characters doing stupid stuff that leads into a massive situation" isn't unique to Regular Show. That's a common plot many shows employ. RS's unique spin on it is how surreal the situations get.

Though to each our own. As said, I've grown to like the show and it's take on characters. I just sometimes wish they'd use everyone they show in the intro.

Oh, I never said that Tiny Toons was not funny or dull. I just look at it as an angle around the whole Muppet Babies schtick where everyone was making kid versions of old characters.

I wonder who redesigned the characters for season 2 of The Looney Tunes Show. Doesn't matter. The show still blows.

Like I say, some Looney Tunes fans won't be satisfied until they find a way to reanimate the corpse of Chuck Jones and force him to go back to making cartoons.

From what I've seen, I actually find the Looney Tunes show to be pretty enjoyable. So what if the formula is a little different? I actually think it's interesting to see these characters existing in a stable environment for a change; it offers an opportunity to explore the characters a little more than was possible in seven minute shorts where the sole purpose was to string a bunch of gags together. Maybe that's just me.

It's ironic that some fans bitch that the Looney Tunes aren't "looney" enough and then, in the same breath, complain about them making Lola... looney. As for Daffy, his personality has changed a lot over the years, so I don't give a crap about one more slightly different characterization. I prefer idiot Daffy to the asshole he got turned into in some of the later "classic" cartoons anyway.

Well I take the backstabbing murderous Daffy over the TLTS one any day. He was a selfish id-driven bird ever since he was created and his jealousy made him famous and more popular than Bugs outside the US . The "asshole" as you say makes us laugh at our own flaws , the idiot one is just lazy writing .

I wholly agree with this, and it is why I can't watch the show anymore. I get that this is a different take on the characters, but Daffy is unbearable. It's one thing to be silly and eccentric, the other an idiot. The fact that Bugs Bunny has his as a roommate just blows my mind. Again, I get that this is a sitcom, but even in other sitcoms behavior like Daffy's was either punished or made out to be a bad thing.

I agree. Leave the Baby Looney Tunes alone. It's supposed to introduce the Looney Tunes to preschoolers ...in its way. Anyway, it's not all that bad, it's just meant for the little kids, so they can later watch the original Looney Tunes when they'll be 6 or 7 years old.
