After the abysmal attempt at the Looney Tunes revival that was “Loonatics Unleashed” (essentially an action comedy cartoon with anime Looney Tunes characters that completely missed the train), WB is anxious to get back to the core of what made the original Looney Tunes so great and made Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and more, household names. Stuart Snyder, who oversees Cartoon Network as the COO of Turner’s kids media division even said that art from “The Loonatics Unleashed” is hanging in Warner’s animation offices as a reminder of what not to do. Thank the maker! Even Looney Tunes: Back in Action didn’t suck that bad.
And so Looney Tunes will hit theaters again, but despite a return to the classic character design and humor, the animation itself is a bit more polished with pseudo realistic texture as these 3-D shorts will be rendered on computers, fitting in with all of the computer animation today’s kids are used to seeing. Well, at least it’s a happy mix of past and present rather than a complete overhaul. The first 3-D short (Warner has approved three, with three more in development) will feature Wile E. Coyote (seen above) and the Road Runner and will play before Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore when that movie hits theaters on July 30th. Not exactly the best movie to start this new venture, but maybe it will convince a few people to see that flick.
