Join the all new adventures of the Looney Tunes pals including Bugs Bunny, Tweety Bird, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck and friends!
Looney Tunes Cartoons is an American animated web television series developed by Peter Browngardt, creator of Cartoon Network’s Secret Mountain Fort Awesome and Uncle Grandpa, and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, based on the characters from Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. It made its worldwide premiere at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival on June 10, 2019. This show is the successor to New Looney Tunes. The series will be publicly released on HBO Max on May 27, 2020.
On June 12, 2019, a short titled Dynamite Dance was uploaded on YouTube. It served as a trailer for the series starring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd.
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 along with Pete Browngardt serve as executive producers for the series. The shorts will bring all of the Looney Tunes together under one roof, including more obscure members like Pete Puma, Beaky Buzzard, Hubie and Bertie, Petunia Pig and Cicero Pig.

Looney Tunes Cartoons Coming Soon From Warner Bros. Animation.
In Annecy, France, Warner Bros. Animation premiered its raucous new slate of Looney Tunes shorts, screening more than 10 of them in front of a packed house of 1,000 enthusiastic festival attendees. The program was introduced by WBA’s vp of series Audrey Diehl, joined by executive producer Pete Browngardt and supervising producer Alex Kirwan who about the production process of the new shorts in between the screening of the films.
The shorts are part of the studio’s commitment to creating 1,000 minutes of new Looney Tunes animation. When WB announced the project at last year’s Annecy festival, the studio touted that the shorts would take a “cartoonist-driven approach to storytelling,” and they’ve stayed true to that mission.
In fact, these cartoons are truly unlike any recent incarnation of Looney Tunes television projects – the characters felt true to their personalities, the cartoons were visually driven with each one reflecting the distinct humor of its directors and board artists, and the gags were inventive and outrageous, in some cases outrageous enough to make one wonder, How did they get away with that in 2019?
Among the shorts that received the strongest reaction at the screening was Basket Bugs, also directed by Gemmill. Two of the gags in that film were so well constructed (and unexpected) that they received applause from the audience, and as anyone who watches a lot of animated shorts in theaters can tell you, it’s a rare occasion when an audience cheers for individual gags in the middle of a film.
Warner Bros. still hasn’t announced how it will release its new Looney Tunes content – there could be as many as 200-plus shorts of varying lengths when all is said and done – but wherever they put them out, a lot of viewers are going to be pleasantly surprised by this one-of-a-kind project
