Culture: “Looney Tunes” returning in suburban form for some reason

  • So, can you get behind the idea of Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny living in the ‘burbs? Well, you’ll have a little bit of time to get used to the idea before it becomes real, as the Cartoon Network merely announced the new “Looney Tunes Show” yesterday. As you might guess, the show will do the same stupid thing they’ve done with every Looney Tune cartoon since about 1989 – put classic characaters in a postmodern context. Listen, guys: The only time it actually worked was on “Tiny Toon Adventures,” so let’s not push it. (Also on the stable: A “Mad Magazine” cartoon reboot. Which hopefully will be better than “Mad TV” was. Also, rock monster Andrew W.K.’s non-cartoon reality show “Destroy Build Destroy” isn’t going anywhere!) source
