Looney Tunes Cartoons

Kenny Pittenger & David Gemmill (2020)

Please enjoy this short from the new series “Looney Tunes Cartoons”.

Starring the cherished Looney Tunes characters. Looney Tunes Cartoons echoes the high production value and process of the original Looney Tunes theatrical shorts with a cartoonist-driven approach to storytelling. Marquee Looney Tunes characters will be featured in their classic pairings in simple, gag-driven and visually vibrant stories. The new series from Warner Bros. Animation is comprised of animated shorts that vary in length and includes adapted storylines for today’s audience.

Looney Tunes Cartoons is an American animated web television series developed by Peter Browngardt and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, based on the characters from Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. The series made its worldwide debut at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival on June 10, 2019, and will premiere on HBO Max on May 27, 2020.

On June 11, 2018, Warner Bros. Animation announced that a new series, which would “consist of 1,000 minutes spread across 1–6 minute shorts”, would be released in 2019 and that it would feature “the brand’s marquee characters voiced by their current voice actors in simple gag-driven and visually vibrant stories”. The style of the series is to be reminiscent to those of Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, Robert McKimson, Bob Clampett and others. President of Warner Bros. Animation, Sam Register (creator of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi), along with Peter Browngardt (the creator of Secret Mountain Fort Awesome and Uncle Grandpa), serve as executive producers for the series.

The series will bring all of the Looney Tunes characters together under one roof, including marquee characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester Cat, Tweety Bird, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, Taz, Foghorn Leghorn, Beaky Buzzard, and Pepé Le Pew. Who else might show up? You’ll have to watch to find out.

  1. The anime aspect doesn’t appeal to me, but the last time we stayed at the Disney hotel we watched like a dozen in a row and they were pretty funny. To me, though, Warners is doing the best balance of the old and new.

  2. Have you seen the new Mickey Mouse shorts? They are kind of remind me of a mix of the golden age meets anime or something. But I’ve always been more partial to Looney Tunes over cutesy Disney.

  3. Those do a wonderful job of getting back to quality of the originals. Glad to see someone is keeping them alive. Bugs Bunny will be 80 this year?? Amazing.
