The New Looney Tunes Show is an American animated comedy television series created by Tom Ruegger, Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone, based on the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies franchise and its spin-offs Taz-Mania, Tiny Toons Adventures and Animaniacs, airing on Cartoon Network and Boomerang since June 15, 2016 and produced by Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Animation. Starting in 2019, the show will also air on WB Kids. Despite the name, part of the cast and the inclusion of characters introduced in The Looney Tunes Show, the show is completely unrelated to television series aired between 2011 and 2014, adopting the Looney Tunes classic format and design and some characteristics of The Bugs Bunny Show, featuring an updated version of This Is It.

During the first three seasons, during the Christmas and Halloween holidays, some specials are aired on The CW. With the launch of the WB Kids block, new specials premiere on the block.

The series is also available on Netflix and Hulu.

SynopsisEdit

Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are the hosts of the series, normally introducing to the viewers the segments presented in the episodes. Every episode is split into three segments starring the characters from Looney Tunes, Taz-Mania, Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs, along with two mini-skits: the first between the first and the second segment and the second between the second and the third segment.

Opening sequenceEdit

The opening sequence starts with the traditional Warner Bros. Animation rings, followed by a sequence inspired by the openings of the first two seasons of Garfield and Friends and of Quack Pack, where the Looney Tunes (Bugs, Daffy, Porky, Taz and Squeaks) are constantly scene-changing between the Tiny Toons gang (Buster, Babs, Plucky, Hamton, Gogo and Dizzy) and the Warner Siblings at the tune of the theme song. The animation for the sequence is done at Tokyo Movie Shinsha (TMS Entertainment) and directed by Rich Arons.

CharactersEdit

See List of characters in The New Looney Tunes Show.

LocationsEdit

ACME AcresEdit

ACME Acres is the main setting in the show and the primary location for the show's characters, being located in California, bordering with Burbank. ACME Acres is composed by five areas: The Suburbs, The City, The Coastline, The Forest and Mt. Acme.

The Space (Dodgers Team segments)Edit

The setting where Duck Dodgers and his crew are in his spaceship during the 24½th century. Many various planets, including Mars (where Marvin the Martian and The Martian Queen live) are known to be various places Duck Dodgers and his crew visits throughout their vast adventures and uncharted territory.

Warner Bros. Studios (The Warner Siblings segments)Edit

The Warner Bros. Studios, located in Burbank, are Warner Bros. Entertainment's corporate headquarters and the Warner Siblings' residence, housing the Water Tower, Termite Terrace and, of course, the main gate.

ProductionEdit

WritingEdit

The show features the entire cast back to their original roots and acting the same as they were in Looney Tunes, Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs.

Besides Ruegger, Brandt and Cervone, other major crew members already worked with other Looney Tunes-related projects, with the writing inspired by the classic works from WB veteran animators Chuck Jones, Tex Avery, Friz Freleng, Bob Clampett and Robert McKimson.

Starting with the special New Guys in the Acres, Regular Show creator J. G. Quintel, along with his colleagues Sam Marin and Mike Roth, joined the show's crew, marking Quintel's return to the production of a family-friendly television show.

The writing quality started to generally weaken after its fourth season, allowing the animation quality to grow stronger than usual. Quintel and his team of writers left to work on their reboot of Alvin and the Chipmunks for Bagdasarian Productions and Paramount Television Animation.

Occasionally, the voice cast provides the writing for some segments.

Both Season 1 and Season 3 also feature one-shot segments influenced by the early Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies shorts.

Despite its TV-Y7-FV rating, the show occasionally features some adult jokes.

VoicesEdit

In contrast with The Looney Tunes Show, the Looney Tunes voice cast is composed by professional VAs like Jeff Bergman, Bob Bergen, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Kath Soucie, Grey DeLisle and Tress MacNeille, with the first four reprising almost all their roles from the previous show, rather than a celebrity-based voice cast.

According to executive producer Steven Spielberg, "the Looney Tunes characters lose a bit of their touch if their voice actors try do give them a different take rather than trying their touch of the original takes. We may not have Mel Blanc anymore, but his legacy is to be retained".

As for the other shows, most of the voice cast of Tiny Toons Adventures and Animaniacs reprise their roles from the previous shows, with Charlie Adler serving as the series' voice director.

Some guest stars occasionally do voices for some characters in the show. Some examples include other voice actors like Tom Kenny, Kevin Michael Richardson and Elizabeth Daily and celebrity voices like Gordon Ramsay, Charlie Sheen, Seth MacFarlane and Gilbert Gottfried. When a guest voice actor voices a character in the series, he's credited as an additional voice rather than a special guest voice.

AnimationEdit

The New Looney Tunes Show has been farmed out to several different animation studios. These companies include Film Roman (first and second seasons only), Yowza! Animation (first and second seasons only), Wang Film Productions (first and second seasons only), Rough Draft Korea and Tokyo Movie Shinsha (TMS Entertainment, first and second seasons only), with animation directed by veteran animator Eric Goldberg during the first two seeasons. The third season's animation was later directed by animation directors Robert Alvarez, Bill Knoll and Gwen A. Wetzler.

Like Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs, The New Looney Tunes Show is made with a higher production value than standard television animation. It has a digitally-colored drawing count that was more than double that of most television animation. The series have about 25,000 digitally-colored drawings per episode instead of the standard 10,000, making it unique in that characters move more fluidly. All The New Looney Tunes Show characters often move fluidly and do not regularly stand still and speak, as in other television cartoons.

As the show progressed, Cartoon Network made network budget cuts on the animation, but not on the writing. And as a result, the third season's animation went into a downgrading quality and this was caused to resort to being in the 1960s Warner Bros.-Seven Arts/DePatie-Freleng Enterprises era shorts' animation style. In an interview by Steven Spielberg, he clearly states that he was not satisfied with Cartoon Network's animation budget cuts and the use of DFE-styled limited animation (of which he did not use exclusively in most of his animated TV shows).

The other companies, Film Roman, Wang Film Productions, Yowza! Animation and Tokyo Movie Shinsha had left entirely around the second season and were replaced with new companies Toon City Animation (despite their animation's rubbery and cartoony nature), Digital eMation, Yearim Productions and Yeson Entertainment. This makes Rough Draft Korea the only studio to be leftover from the second season and the new main animation studio starting with Season 3.

In the fourth season, Toon City Animation, Digital eMation and Yeson Entertainment left the show as well, making Rough Draft Korea and Yearim Productions, as well as the returner Tokyo Movie Shinsha (TMS Entertainment) and the newcomer Bardel Entertainment (in which the studio was assigned to animate only two or three episodes) the remaining overseas studios to animate the episodes for not only this season, but for the rest of the series. The animation budget cuts were dropped, allowing Eric Goldberg to come back and direct the animation for the series, returning its animation style from the first and second seasons.

MusicEdit

The series' soundtrack is composed by veteran composer Walter Murphy, better known by his work on Family Guy and American Dad!, who also composed the soundtrack for the Larry Doyle-produced Looney Tunes shorts, and by Ron Jones, who works with Murphy in the abovementioned shows, being also known by his work in DuckTales and Star Trek: The Next Generation, being strongly influenced by Carl W. Stalling and Milt Franklyn's work for the classic shorts.

Critical responseEdit

The show has recieved critical acclaim, being mainly praised for its writing, voice cast and soundtrack.

Steve Butts from IGN has praised the inclusion of the Taz-Mania, Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs characters to the show and Jeff Bergman's portrayal of his voiced characters, saying "in contrast with The Looney Tunes Show, Jeff goes back to the origins and brings his characters back to the golden era of animation, having a bit of Mel Blanc, Greg Burson and Joe Alaskey on his characters, but at the same time giving his own delivery".

TriviaEdit

CharactersEdit

  • Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are best friends in the show (like in The Looney Tunes Show), but retaining their frenemyship, being featured in several segments.
  • Sylvester and Tweety are frenemies in the show.
    • The same situation also happens with Daffy Duck and Speedy Gonzales and with Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dawg.
  • Similarly to other characters that had various jobs in their shows, Claude Cat is seen having various jobs in the show. Because of it, many fans could considered him as the show's The Red Guy (from Cow and Chicken).
    • Coincidentally, Buster Bunny's voice actor Charlie Adler also provides the voice for The Red Guy.
  • Daffy Duck's personality in the show is a mix between "screwball" Daffy, Robert McKimson's Daffy and Chuck Jones and Friz Freleng's Daffy.
  • In some episodes, Daffy and Plucky are less selfish and more innocent about a few of their actions.
  • Lola Bunny is featured with her characteristics from the Looney Tunes comics, but using her clothing from the Season 2 of The Looney Tunes Show.
  • Tina Russo (from The Looney Tunes Show, now voiced by Grey DeLisle) and Squeaks the Squirrel (from Wabbit) were redesigned for the show in order to match the classic Looney Tunes design.
  • Various forgotten/one-time characters like Sylvia Pussycat, Aoogah Bird, Bosko, Honey, Foxy, Roxy, Babbit, Catstello, Cool Cat, Colonel Rimfire, Bunny and Claude were reintroduced in the show.
  • Bosko, Honey, Foxy and Roxy appear with their Tiny Toon Adventures designs, but with their clothes colored.
  • The inclusion of Sylvia Pussycat (from the 1953 short A Mouse Divided), Aoogah Bird (from Tweety's High Flying Adventure) and Queen Tyr'ahnee (from the Duck Dodgers TV series) in the show made Sylvester, Tweety and Marvin the Martian included in the roster of Looney Tunes characters with a female counterpart, along with Bugs Bunny (Lola Bunny), Daffy Duck (Tina Russo), Porky Pig (Petunia Pig), Pepé Le Pew (Penelope Pussycat), Foghorn Leghorn (Miss Prissy), Tasmanian Devil (Tasmanian She-Devil), Bosko (Honey), Foxy (Roxy), Henry Bear (Mama Bear) and Claude (Bunny).
  • Unlike A Mouse Divided, Sylvia tends to be more antagonistic towards smaller animals, mainly Tweety.
    • The same situation also happens with Penelope Pussycat when not paired with Pepé Le Pew, similarly to Tweety's High Flying Adventure.

EpisodesEdit
