Hollywood’s Revenge On Saturday Morning Cartoons (page 2)
That’s right. Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, and the whole gang are set to reappear in The Cartoon Network’s “The Looney Tunes Show“. A whole new generation of boob-tube voyeurs can enjoy a twist on the classic cartoon icons; Daffy and Bugs are roommates in the suburbs while Yosemite Sam, Tweety Bird, Sylvester, Marvin the Martian and Porky Pig are their neighbors.
Hey, they’re even giving Wily E. Coyote and The Roadrunner makeovers as 3-D computer animated ‘toons.
According to Peter Roth, President of Warner Brothers Television, fans will enjoy the original, “DNA of the wise cracking characters… that made them stars in the 1940s. Bugs, Daffy, Porky and crew for the first time in years will look and behave in a manner that is familiar to adults who grew up on the cartoons. No babies. No punked-out space adventurers.”
