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).

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.

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.

Mel Blanc voices The Looney Tunes again in Daffy’s Rhapsody

Mel Blanc voices The Looney Tunes again in Daffy's Rhapsody

A few weeks back, we caught wind that Warner Bros. was bringing the Looney Tunes to the big screen. Riding high on the success of the relaunched characters in Cartoon Network’s The Looney Tunes Show, Daffy, Elmer Fudd, and other icons will be appearing in three new 3D, CG animated shorts. We’ve since learned that two of the spots, Daffy’s Rhapsody and I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat, will feature the original voice actor himself, the iconic Mel Blanc! Prior to his death in 1989, Mel Blanc spent over 50 years voicing almost every classic Looney Tunes character, from Bugs Bunny to Yosemite Sam. Now, Blanc’s unique and memorable personalities will live on, courtesy of never-before-used recordings. The first of the shorts, Daffy’s Rhapsody, will be in theaters November 18th, 2011, along with the film Happy Feet 2.

The Looney Tunes Show Fish presents Visitors on Cartoon Network

The Looney Tunes Show Fish presents Visitors on Cartoon Network

By the time week’s episode of The Looney Tunes Show is through, you’ll know what the expression “Fish and Visitors” means! Tonight, May 24th at 8 p.m., Cartoon Network tells the horror story of what would happen if Yosemite Sam moved in with you. At least, through the eyes of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. In the middle of a week-long storm, when Sam’s solar-powered house shuts down, he temporarily moves in to Bugs and Daffy’s house. Unfortunately for the guys, Sam is the messiest, worst houseguest ever. How to get rid of him? TOON in tonight and find out! And be sure to stick around for Elmer Fudd, Chickenhawk, and Foghorn Leghorn!

Fish and Visitors and Yosemite Sam and Cartoon Network’s The Looney Tunes Show

Fish and Visitors and Yosemite Sam and Cartoon Network's The Looney Tunes Show

There’s an old expression, originally coined by Ben Franklin, that “fish and visitors smell in three days.” And, since we get a general idea of how bad a fish would stink if left on your living room couch for three days, we can imagine what Ben meant in regard to guests. Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are put into a similar situation when Yosemite Sam crashes at their place for awhile, in the May 24th episode of the Looney Tunes Show, Fish and Visitors. Seems like being a good neighbor can backfire in serious ways, according to Cartoon Network’s latest toon. And if you haven’t had enough after getting your fill of Sam, stick around for Merrie Melodies, Chickenhawk, starring Foghorn Leghorn

The Looney Tunes Show brings Jailbird …and Jailbunny to Cartoon Network

The Looney Tunes Show brings Jailbird ...and Jailbunny to Cartoon Network

This Tuesday, May 17th, Cartoon Network is throwing the Looney Tunes in the slammer. And, heck, might as well bring the Merrie Melodies along with ya! What’s all the hubbub? At 8pm, the Warner Bros. crew of the Looney Tunes Show find their antics landing them in jail. After a visit to the Grand Canyon with Porky Pig goes awry, Bugs and Daffy find themselves in courtroom trouble before landing in maximum security prison. The episode, Jailbird …and Jailbunny, doesn’t end there — not before Daffy schemes a masterful prison break, specifically hoping to avoid the Crusher. Then stick around for this week’s Merrie Melodies music video, Blow My Stack, which stars Yosemite Sam.

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!

Warner Bros. reveals the Looney Tunes ACME warehouse

Warner Bros. reveals the Looney Tunes ACME warehouse

Wile E. Coyote, who ranks 17th on ToonBarn’s 20 Scariest Characters list, is famous for shopping at the ACME warehouse. It’s there that he gets his rocket skates. His helicopter hats. His giant slingshots with launch capabilities. Etc, etc. Needless to say, the ACME warehouse is a store of limitless potential that many of the Looney Tunes cast of characters have taken full advantage of over the years. With that in mind, Warner Bros. has dreamed up what could be the ultimate showcase; a live-action and CG hybrid film that focuses on the inner workings of the ACME warehouse. Kevin Hagerman and his brother Dan Hagerman are developing the concept for WB, formerly working on the CG LEGO films together. It’s not yet known what characters, if any, we’ll get from the stable (Bugs, Daffy, Sylvester, the 19th Scariest Toon Yosemite Sam, etc.) but here’s to hoping!
