#HolidayGiftGuide - Looney Tunes DVD - Review



Did you watch the Looney Tunes when you were growing up?
I know we did!
Tasmanian Devil was always my favorite!
I never could get why Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote had to act the way they did...

The Looney Tunes Show was just released on DVD September 27th.
The great thing about this DVD is it introduces us to the Looney Tunes Gang...
But in todays setting!!!!

We watched it and although I caught myself laughing, it was not the Looney Tunes that I remembered!
They had Elmer Fudd acting all weird about grilled cheese...
(I still have NO CLUE what that was about.)
But, I was laughing at how Bugs totally called Daffy out about being so centered on himself that he would not do good in a game show about best friends, as he knew nothing about Bugs!!!!
Yes, the characters are the same, but as I said, the settings are so different.
I think they just tried to make it more appealing for today's generation, but I do think by doing so, it might push away some of the older generations...
It is cute though and it will get kids laughing, especially the one with Yosemite Sam being "roomies" with Daffy and Bugs!

BURBANK, CA, (September 6, 2011) – 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 featuresMerrie 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.”

  5. The Looney Tunes is such a classic! I love that they are "modern" now, though. I think the more modern, the more my grandson would enjoy it!
