If you grew up loving Merry Melodies and Looney Tunes shorts, Warner Bros. Animation has an announcement that's sure to inspire a rush of feelings: They're rebooting Bugs Bunny and all your favorite characters.
There's an important twist, though. Instead of giving the new Looney Tunes a distinct look and feel, and rather than trying to mimic the style of early artists, the new Looney Tunes shorts will be drawn by a wide variety of well-known cartoonists who will be able to alter the styles from short to short. It's being hailed as hugely ambitious, and Warner Bros. plans to release these shorts in multiple formats, so people can discover and enjoy the latest Porky Pig or Daffy Duck adventures in a web browser, on TV or on their mobile phones.
Warner Bros. Animation President Sam Register had this bold promise for long-time Looney Tunes fans:
“The Looney Tunes are one of the most beloved group of animated characters in the world. Looney Tunes Cartoons places these characters into the hands of some of the best artists in the business and into an animated shorts format that will remind many of the time when they first fell in love with Bugs, Daffy, Porky and the rest of the gang.”
