The Looney Tunes Show on DVD


Classic Looney Tunes Characters Feature a Contemporary Look
Appealing to a New Generation of Viewers

What happens when Bugs Bunny and all his legendary Looney Tunes pals undergo a 21st century makeover? The result is The Looney Tunes Show, a hilarious new animated comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation which premiered in May on Cartoon Network and is now being released on DVD September 27, 2011, by Warner Home Video (WHV). Titled The Looney Tunes Show Season 1 Volume 1, this release will feature a selection of laugh-out-loud animated episodes from the new TV series and will retail for $14.97 SRP.

In The Looney Tunes Show, screen icons Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck return in this all-new modern comedy series, joined by fan-favorite Looney Tunes characters. Bugs and Daffy haven't changed but their living situation has. Bugs is as brazen, sarcastic and ahead-of-the-game as ever, and Daffy, despite his narcissistic, sociopathic and paranoid tendencies, is Bugs' best friend and seemingly permanent houseguest. No longer confined to seven-minute shorts, their larger-than-life personalities (and egos) offer an irreverent, comical take on our modern world and introduce a whole new realm of possibilities. Now Bugs and Daffy can wreak as much havoc at the grocery store or the DMV as they once did in the forest.

Rounding out the cast are Porky Pig, Lola, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, the Tasmanian Devil, Marvin the Martian, Tweety, Sylvester, Granny, Gossamer and the newest character of the bunch, Daffy's no-nonsense girlfriend, Tina. The series also features Merrie Melodies animated music videos of original songs spotlighting everyone from Elmer Fudd to Pepe Le Pew — plus all new adventures with the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote in stunning CG.

The Looney Tunes Show Season 1 Volume 1 brings classic Looney Tunes to a brand-new generation of viewers and, while it stays true to the original cartoon, the look of the characters has been streamlined and updated with cutting-edge animation for a fresh and contemporary feel,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WHV Executive Director Non-Theatrical Franchise. She added, “These characters have been with us for decades and it’s wonderful to see them continue evolving. We think both classic Looney Tunes aficionados and newer viewers will embrace The Looney Tunes Show. It’s a must-have DVD for anyone who appreciates great animation.”

My Take:
Do you love the Looney Tunes as much as I do?  It was one of my favorite cartoon series when I was a child growing up.  I love how the characters have evolved over the years.  I can remember back when Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd were all pudgy looking in the first cartoons they were in. I will admit the updates to their characters were a good change.  I think one of the reasons I like the Looney Tunes so much is that for the most part they are the same ole characters I loved as child.  This DVD is no different, same great characters, same great laughs.  Even my kids have some to love the Looney Tunes. My daughter is in love with Tweety Bird and my son loves the Tasmanian Devil.
