Never Before Seen Episode of The Looney Tunes Show: Superrabit

If you’re a big fan of The Looney Tunes and Superman, Warner Bros. Animation’s most recent promo video and teaser gallery should be interesting, as it shows off the iconic Bugs Bunny donning what looks to be a Superman costume. Of course, the title of the clip is a dead giveaway: Superrabit.

According to Warner Bros. Animation’s description of the episode, Superrabit finds Bugs explaining to Daffy Duck how he was Super Rabbit for a while but gave it all up for specific reasons. As for what those reasons were, you’ll just have to watch the episode when it airs on Sunday, August 31 at 6:30 pm on Cartoon Network.

Classic Looney Tunes Returns to Boomerang on October

looney-tunes-boomerang

This coming October 5, one of the greatest franchises in theatrical animated shorts will be returning to Boomerang, as the 24-hour classic animation network brings back Warner Bros’ classic Looney Tunes shorts via a one-hour block that airs on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 7 am.

The classic Looney Tunes cartoons were first produced from 1930 to 1969, which is considered by many as the golden age of American animation. The cartoons originally showcased Warner-owned musical compositions via the adventures of cartoon characters like Bosko and Buddy, but soon introduced a roster of new toons that eventually rose to popularity and became synonymous with the industry itself: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Sylvester, Tweety, Taz, Marvin the Martian, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner, Foghorn Leghorn, Yosemite Sam, Pepé Le Pew, and Speedy Gonzales. The cartoons last appeared on Boomerang in May of 2007.

This Tuesday, prepare yourself for another episode of pure, wacky hilarity as The Looney Tunes Show will find Bugs Bunny in a very difficult situation, with the crazy wabbit trying to hang a shelf for the purpose of displaying his Nobel Prize. But, as expected of a Looney Tunes episode, this very simple activity turns into a completely messy situation, and hilarity soon ensues. Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales also guest stars, as they find themselves temporarily homeless due to Bugs Bunny’s shelf activities.

Woody Woodpecker Film in the Works

It’s beginning to look like 2012 will be a great year for classic cartoon franchises, with a lot of big names getting the big screen treatment. The most recent addition to the roster of classic toons to get a film adaptation (as the Mayans have foretold long ago!) is Walter Lantz’ Woody Woodpecker. The upcoming Woody Woodpecker film has a story that will be developed by Blades of Glory screenwriters John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, with the project being helmed by Chris Meldandri and his team at Universal’s Illumination Entertainment. There are no set details about the story yet, but the team is planning to develop a story that will modernize the character for today’s audiences.

The Essential Daffy Duck DVD is Out Now

The Essential Daffy Duck DVD is Out Now

This week saw the release of Warner Bros. The Essential Daffy Duck on DVD shelves. The two-disc set, which retails for $26.99, contains 2 DVDs packed full with 21 Daffy Duck classics, such as Porky’s Duck Hunt, one of the many skits with Porky Pig as a hunter and Daffy as his unlucky (or lucky, in this case) target – this is not to be confused with the much better episode with Yosemite Sam as the hunter and Daffy and Bugs both playing the target, but it’s understandable since that episode is Bugs’ more than Daffy’s (Yosemite Sam is Bug’s Bunny’s villain).

A decent part of tonight’s Looney Tunes Show episode will feature the transformation of Daffy Duck, from mildly annoying roommate to mildly annoying pretend detective. Bugs, on the other hand, is going through his own transformation. Never passing up an opportunity to spout “What’s up, Doc”, Bugs heads in to the doctor’s for a routine checkup when he discovers his caffeine intake is too high. Maybe there’s something wrong with 50 cups of coffee a day, who knows. Upon the doctor’s recommendation, Bugs tries to calm his caffeine rages a bit, hoping a switch to Yosemite Sam’s new energy drink, called Spargle, will do the job. Days of sleepliness later, and Bugs realizes he’s cleaned everything he owns and taken care of a year’s worth of chores in just a few hours. Maybe this isn’t the best substitution.

With all the cop dramas on TV today, it’s difficult to tell the good ones from the bad ones. Or the Looney ones from the Daffy ones, for that matter. Take this week’s episode of The Looney Tunes Show, for example, where Daffy’s obsession with TV star Steve St. James leads him to a real-life quest for justice. With Porky at his side, and a full world of toon folk to question, it’s finally time for Daffy to make his patrol as an Off Duty Cop. How does this fare for his roommate, when Bugs Bunny’s caffeine addiction makes him the criminal target Daffy must hunt down? Be sure to TOON in to Cartoon network on Tuesday, October 25th, at 8pm for Looney Tunes Show: Off Duty Cop.

The Looney Tunes Show drives to the DMV, thanks to Bugs, Daffy, Lola

The Looney Tunes Show drives to the DMV, thanks to Bugs, Daffy, Lola

Tonight, on The Looney Tunes Show, almost everyone has to head over to the DMV. It all starts when Daffy insists on driving Bugs to the movies in his parade float. Before too long, he runs a stop sign, gets pulled over, and gets stranded with Bugs as his float towed away. What’s the problem? No license, of course! Now he has to head over to the DMV to try and get himself qualified, and it’s there that Bugs and Daffy run into so many others from the toon – meanwhile, all Bugs wants to do is walk! Granted, that’s not nearly as funny as Lola Bunny trying to pass Yosemite Sam’s driving instruction, so we’ll just have to TOON on in to Cartoon Network at 8pm for The Looney Tunes Show’s latest episode, DMV!

Bugs and Daffy hit the DMV

Depending on where you live, your 15th, 16th, or 17th birthday is something you really look forward to, as that is the first day you’re allowed to legally get your driver’s license and drive a car. Tuesday September 20th might not be all of their birthdays, but it seems many characters from the Looney Tunes Show are heading over to the DMV to make sure they’re cleared to be behind the wheel: and most of them are far from it! For example, when Daffy takes Bugs to the movies, he drives his parade float through a few stop signs – this doesn’t exactly please the cops! Soon enough, he’s at the DMV with everyone else, trying to make the grade. Walking was probably a better choice for them, but we’ll drive over to our TVs on September 20th at 8pm and park in front of Cartoon Network to see how it all turns out on The Looney Tunes Show: DMV.
