Editorial Reviews

A half-hour animated comedy series starring Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. No longer confined to 7-minute shorts, Bugs and Daffy are out of the woods and living in the suburbs among such colorful neighbors as Yosemite Sam, Granny, Tweety and Sylvester. In addition to each episode's main story, The Looney Tunes Show also features 'cartoons within a cartoon.' The Tasmanian Devil, Speedy Gonzales, Marvin the Martian and other classic characters sing original songs in two-minute music videos called Merrie Melodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sort of like Looney Tunes Meets Seinfeld July 30, 2011
My wife and I (ages 30 and 37 respectively) really enjoy this updated take on the Looney Tunes characters. If you haven't watched this, here's a short description for you. Daffy moves in with Bugs and it's a very much like the Kramer/Seinfeld relationship in my opinion. Daffy causes various outrageous situations and Bugs has to clean them up or suffer through them. Other LT favorites are here as well, Yosemite Sam is their neighbor, as is Granny, who owns Sylvester and Tweety. There are Roadrunner Coyote shorts which are very much like the old ones, just with newer 3D-ish looking animation. To be honest I like the old ones better, but the new ones are good too. Speedy Gonzales owns a pizza restaurant for some reason. Porky is a loveable loser. Lola Bunny is a great new character as a crazy stalker obsessed with Bugs. Elmer Fudd is a newscaster.

The humor is really more for adults than kids, as it is sometimes quite subtle, for example Daffy Duck gets some "business" cards printed that simply say "Daffy Duck - Wizard" This new version of the show is more plot based than just the random silliness of the older cartoons and centers on situations like Daffy Duck's high school reunion or Bugs making a TV commercial for Speedy's pizza place. So I think this show is for sure made for grown-ups who enjoyed the old version growing up.

Each show also has a short musical part in the middle called "merrie melodies" which are always good and sometimes very hilarious and creative, like Foghorn Leghorn singing a "Cock of the Walk." Also, as with Seinfeld, there's a final short scene that acts as a coda for the entire episode.

As someone who grew up loving the original Looney Tunes, and as someone who enjoys other more edgy animation (Simpsons, Futurama, some older Adult Swim stuff, etc.) I would recommend this show.

A Kid's Review
In This brand new series Bugs And Daffy are back in larger than life Adventures with funny spin on life in the suburbs and just as Daffy would say " The suburbs creating the illusion of success for seventy-two years" however this new series has a new comedy source of dialog opposing to slapstick I don't think someone has been hit on the head with an anvil so far an example of the dialog comedy is Bugs About to get married with his chatty girlfriend Lola who annoys Bugs to death and Pepe Le pew was talking to them and said "Lola let the smell of honey suckle cover you as you walk down the aisle there will not be one dry eye in the house" In which Bugs said "I will be crying harder than anyone". This show is is more like a sitcom for kids rather than uptight Anvil on the head slapstick comedy. Bottom line : Funny Sitcom style Toon brings back Bugs, Daffy Porky, and the gain into recognition for modern child age group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tunes of Glory January 19, 2012
By Roochak
I couldn't believe how hard I was laughing the first time I watched this disc. What, the Looney Tunes are funny again?! In a 21st century setting? How'd that happen?

Some viewers are awfully disappointed that THE LOONEY TUNES SHOW isn't an attempt to revive the characters in the style of the classic theatrical shorts we all know and love. First of all, Looney Tunes Back In Action tried to do that very thing, and failed miserably. Second, this show is a TV sitcom, but a sitcom so aware of six decades of television history that it comes to us with a sly, subversive panache worthy of Bugs himself. There are knowing winks at SEINFELD's great ensemble pieces and its comedy of escalating nuisances; THE ODD COUPLE's successful formula of oil-and-water roommates; THE REN & STIMPY SHOW's unholy marriage of kidvid and August Strindberg; and THE JACK BENNY SHOW's metafictional premise of comic actors playing warped versions of themselves (in this case, it's Bugs and Daffy playing new, downscaled characters called "Bugs Bunny" and "Daffy Duck" -- and it works brilliantly).

Let's remember that the theatrical Looney Tunes shorts were made for adults as well as kids, and the new show takes that outlook and runs with it. It's disconcerting but somehow logical to see Bugs and Daffy cohabitating, though Daffy is a bum who crashed on Bugs's sofa five years ago and hasn't left since; they remind me of a divorced showbiz couple living only to torment each other, but who stay together because the act is too good to break up. Lola Bunny returns as a beautiful but completely crazy stalker obsessed with Bugs. Yosemite Sam is scarier as a well meaning but paranoid next door neighbor than he ever was as a career criminal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looney Tunes in a sitcom? Yes! September 12, 2011
It seems to me the folks who dislike this new series most intensely are the most die-hard fans of the classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies films. One reason why the character designs were changed for this show was to clue in viewers that this wasn't meant to be a direct recreation of the classics. If you want the classics, they're also available on DVD -- and soon on Blu-Ray, in the form of the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection, which should be a real treat.

As for The Looney Tunes Show. . . It's an animated sitcom with occasional diversions into the surreal and the absurd, in a similar mold as Family Guy or Rocko's Modern Life, one might say. The pace is relaxed, and there's a lot of humor based on witty dialog and character interactions, not much based on explosions or pratfalls. This show is aimed at an older audience, while still being viewable by kids. Incidentally, kids would probably find Tiny Toons Adventures a lot more engaging -- and that series too is gradually being released on DVD sets.

Of the four episodes on this disc, I think the first is the weakest -- although it does the job of introducing the series, and the Goofy Gophers are used to good effect. Episode two is one of my favorites, as it introduces the adorable-but-nutty Lola Bunny, an antagonist who Bugs's usual tricks just don't work against. Episodes three and four are good, with Bugs and Daffy going to prison together (for contempt of court!) and then trying to keep Yosemite Sam from moving in with them. The Merrie Melodies and the roadrunner shorts in each episode are fillers, but they provide a refreshing counterpoint to the dialog-oriented main stories.

1.0 out of 5 stars What happened to the real Looney Tunes?
This is the worst program I've ever seen. It should be a series of cartoon shorts, but instead, is structured like a poorly-written sitcom. Read more

Not as many episodes as expected or wished for- only about 4 episodes- but all in all the quality and originality of the program is there. Love the Lola Bunny episodes!

2.0 out of 5 stars Sitcom Slice of Life-y, Not Looney
The original cartoons featured strongly in my childhood, and I was hoping for a modern update. Instead the show has too much dialogue and not enough physical comedy. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars I thought it was a complete season
It's alright. I guess I should have read it more. I love the updated Looney Tunes and I assumed I was getting a complete season. Nope.

This is an updated version of the old Looney Tunes we all grew up with. I enjoyed them. I still prefer the old cartoons better. Kids enjoy them.

This show is a disgrace to the Looney Tunes legacy. Plus, even if you like the show it only comes with 4 episodes. Don't waste your money.
