Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story Small Fry joins Jim Henson’s The Muppets

Disney and Pixar's Toy Story Small Fry joins Jim Henson's The Muppets

On November 23rd, the Muppets will finally make their return to the big screen, ready to impress the legions of old fans and a world of new ones. The Disney mascots wont be traveling alone, however, as the film will be joined by a brand new Toy Story short, entitled Small Fry. When Cars 2 hit theaters a few months back, movie goers were also greeted with a short from the Toy Story universe, and the appearance of another has us hoping Pixar really could do a Toy Story 4 someday. But, more importantly, getting proper placement with the Muppets is quite an honor. The recent D23 Expo 2011 not only made special mention of this pairing, but also offered a beautiful tribute to Jim Henson, as Rowlf and Kermit paired to sing the famed Rainbow Connection. Check out the video.

White House Easter Egg Roll with The Looney Tunes Show

White House Easter Egg Roll with The Looney Tunes Show

So what’d you do last Easter? Oh, you know. Just hung around. Stopped by the White House. Hunted for Eggs with Bugs Bunny. Same ole, same ole. …! And here we thought our adventures at grandma’s house were fun! For a lucky few, Easter morning was spent on the lawn of the White House during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, where Cartoon Network brought along two of their largest mascots, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. No plans yet on if any from the Warner Bros. faithful plan to make a run in 2012, which we’re sure is a big relief to President Barack Obama. The pair from the Looney Tunes Show is too different to run together, anyway. Bugs is an Independent, while Daffy is Highly Dependent.

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!
