Bugs gets buzzed and Daffy patrols on Off Duty Cop

Bugs gets buzzed and Daffy patrols on Off Duty Cop

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.

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

Bugs and Daffy hit the DMV on Cartoon Network's The Looney Tunes Show

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.

Daffy rules as the The Wizard

Daffy rules as The Wizard on Cartoon Network's The Looney Tunes Show

It’s certainly not “Duck Season!” Through the decades, Daffy has been an adventurer and comedian, but we don’t ever recall him inheriting super human powers and immensely powerful magic abilities. At least, not yet this season. And, with all that said, here he is, starring in this week’s Merrie Melodies short on The Looney Tunes Show as The Wizard. The animated short will appear as part of Sunday Night Slice, the September 13th episode at 8pm. From the looks of these teaser screen grabs and images, we don’t think Bugs will get too upset next time Daffy eats all the chips.

Bugs details Pizzarriba on Sunday Night Slice

Bugs details Pizzarriba on The Looney Tunes Show: Sunday Night Slice

As fun as they are, Bugs, Daffy, and Porky just want a place to hang out that they can call their own. On this week’s The Looney Tunes Show, they’ll tell the story of how such a place came to be, revisiting the origin store of Pizzarriba! From the very beginning when Girardi’s, the local pizza joint, became available, all the way to the miracle that occurs when Speedy Gonzalez helps turn the place around. How does it all turn out? TOON in to Sunday Night Slice on Cartoon Network this Tuesday, September 13th, at 8pm – grab yourself a slice, and let’s find out! And be sure to stick around for the RoadRunner and Wile E. Coyote CG animated short, Go Fly a Coyote!

The Looney Tunes Show The Foghorn Leghorn Story

The Looney Tunes Show The Foghorn Leghorn Story

Tonight, Cartoon Network tells us The Foghorn Leghorn Story. When the Looney Tunes Show kicks off at 8pm, we turn our attentions to Foghorn Leghorn, who has written a movie about his own life. As the director and, I say I say, producer, he can’t also star in the film, so he turns to the next best man …er… bird, Daffy Duck. While Bugs would normally intervene, he’s busy fighting with Yosemite Sam about some valuable items found in the yard. As if that weren’t enough Warner Bros. inspired fun, The Looney Tunes will also feature a Merrie Melodies pitting a RoadRunner Ninja against a Wile E. Coyote Ninja. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the sneak peek teaser trailers, clips, and stills right here.

The Looney Tunes Show sports Monster Talent for Cartoon Network

The Looney Tunes Show sports Monster Talent for Cartoon Network

Looney Tunes is home to many stars, from Bugs to Daffy to Porky. But even the lesser known icons can power themselves to fame: Michigan J. Frog danced his way to the top of the WB! Two of the creepier stars are the Witch and Gossamer; an evil old lady and a giant orange hairball, likely easy additions to a reworked 20 Scariest Cartoon Characters list – and the focus of this week’s episode of The Looney Tunes Show. When it hits 8pm tonight on Cartoon Network, be prepared for Monster Talent, where Daffy tries to socialize Gossamer by joining the talent show. There’s also Speedy Gonzalez’s Pizzariba restaurant, Bugs Bunny’s stardom, Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner’s CG short, A Zipline in the Sand, and much more, so be sure to TOON in tonight!

The Looney Tunes Show goes Members Only on Cartoon Network

The Looney Tunes Show goes Members Only on Cartoon Network

Only one week into the Cartoon Network series, and they’re already getting stuffy? Well, no, not really. But tonight’s The Looney Tunes Show is hoping to go a little high class, with Daffy and Bugs working their way into The Royal Oaks Glenn Oaks Oakwood Oaks Country Club, aka “RO GO OO CC”. The very exclusive membership stretches things out for Daffy, but life is even more of a challenge to his pal Bugs, who must deal with a new lady friend named Lola. Meanwhile, be sure to spot Pepe LePew’s series debut in this episode, Members Only, when it airs tonight, May 10th, at 8pm. Also, look out for Marvin the Martian in this week’s Merrie Melodies music video, and the RoadRunner and Wile E. Coyote in a CG short.

Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are two of the world’s most well known cartoon characters of all time, and their nearly century-long rivalry has been providing laughter to millions. Well, what if their next step was to become roommates? That’s the experiment Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. are putting together in their newest adaptation of the Looney Tunes, The Looney Tunes Show. In addition to these guys, we have all the regulars like Speedy Gonzales, Yosemite Sam, Porky Pig, Marvin the Martian, Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote, and all sorts of other classics in all new adventures. The thrill ride begins Tuesday, May 3rd, so make sure you’re ready!

Cartoon Network’s return to the Looney Tunes May 3rd

Cartoon Network's return to the Looney Tunes May 3rd

For generations, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and the like have been the iconic representation of cartoons. From the day Warner Bros. introduced these most famous mascots, they’ve been replayed, re-run, and re-laughed with millions of times around the world. Now, Turner is hoping to re-imagine the group for a new generation. There are no extra gimmicks or ploys — they’re not babies or from the future or a super hero group or anything like that. It’s simply a fresh new look and feel, with a contemporary animated style. The goal for Cartoon Network’s new Looney Tunes toon is not just to appeal to new fans, but fans of the original series, too. And with just days before May 3rd (8pm) launch, we think things are looking pretty good!

Speedy Gonzales speeds to the big screen

Speedy Gonzales speeds to the big screen

The classic Looney Tunes character, Speedy Gonzales, is headed to the big screen in his own feature film. The mouse speedster, notably smaller than Warner Bros.’ other fast-moving icon, RoadRunner, will dazzle his way into theaters, with comedian George Lopez providing the voice. New Line Cinema plans the movie as a mix of live-action and CG animation, creating a hybrid in style similar to the Chipmunks movies. Speedy debuted in the 1950s as a regular nemesis of Sylvester the Cat, and even won an Academy Award in 1955 for best short subject with a toon simply named “Speedy Gonzales”. He’s last been seen in the movies “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” “Space Jam”, and “Looney Tunes: Back in Action.”
