Sounds like it could be good,but after Space Jam and Back in Action I am going to wait to see it before getting excited.

I would love a return to classic Looney Tunes mayhem. But I'm with you, Doctor Who?, I'll wait and see how the reviews go before getting too much hope up.

The Wile E. Coyote cartoons were my favorite, too. Get that straight, people. They were NOT Roadrunner cartoons, he was barely in them for Gods sake, and he didn't do anything! I loved that it was often the Laws of Physics that hated the Coyote the most. Willing to bend and break themselves just to hurt him.

I also really loved it the few times when he spoke. It was a different dynamic going up against Bugs, but the voice just made it all work.

I'll be sure to check these out, but I'm not really going to let myself get my hopes up too high or psyche myself out of enjoying it either. I don't know if I like the idea of the series with Bugs and Daffy as roommates. Why bind yourself into that setup?  Classic Looney Tunes could start with any setup or plot at any time, you could do almost anything with it, now they'll have to spend time explaining how they get into the wacky scenarios before getting to the fun stuff.

Oh, and they better not mess with thief personalities to make them all friends and better role models or some crap like that.  Elmer Fudd isn't Bugs Bunny's wacky bald buddy, he's a stupid hunter who wants to shoot Bugs in the head but always fails. Don't take the conflict out of my Looney Tunes!

Okay, open mind in 3...2...1 go!

Actually, after the redesigns, Loonatics Unleashed really wasn't that bad. It just was never that great, either.

There's still not a chance in hell that I'm going to see Cats & Dogs 2, even with WB shorts in front of them.

Well if they aren't awesome enough to put the shorts online, I might have to theater-hop to check it out.

And there's the whole roomates thing.

That's what really threw me. WTF? Why is that remotely necessary?  Also, 3 minutes is pretty short even for a toon; the originals ran 7-8 mins.
I've never understood why WB feels the need to re-imagine Looney Tunes.  It's not like the original concept didn't work.

It's all a desperate grab for attention within the company.  Someone in a meeting says "lets just make more Looney Tunes" it doesn't excite the men in charge.  They're detached from what real life is like thanks to insulation from building their giant mansions with paper mache thousand dollar bills, and don't see how awesome Looney Tunes ever were.  Someone else says "I was looking at Looney Tunes and I came up with something NEW" and you can distract the money men with the idea of "fresh" and "current" long enough get your idea made.  It might suck, but at least you still have something to do.
