Apparently they aren't done digging up the remnants of my childhood and raping them: :cry:

Article

Quote

Hoping to breathe new life into its animated Looney Tunes franchise and prop up the WB television network's slumping Kids' WB line-up, Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros. is planning to launch a new cartoon series this fall based on "re-imagined" versions of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tasmanian Devil, Lola Bunny, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote.

Warner Bros. has created angular, slightly menacing-looking versions of the classic Looney Tunes characters for its new series, dubbed "Loonatics" and set in the year 2772.

Someone's seen Batman Beyond and figured why not apply it to the Loony Tunes? Though how someone could have put those two together is beyond me.

Good fucking lord. This is disturbing.

And on another note - did you know that whatever stations still show the old classic Looney Toons show them edited? Apparently some of the old shows aren't PC anymore, so the 'offending' parts have been removed.

They're making them for today's "hip, cool kids."  Yes, somebody actually said that at a press conference.  Or something equally lame.  Heard it on NPR this morning.  Does that make me unhip? smile

  In the words of the hippest, coolest person EVAR (JeffK): This si teh suk!

Sander Schwartz/President of Warner Brothers Animation: "What we're doing is taking Bugs Bunny, a classic and changing him for the kids making him fresh, cool and hip."

Doesn't anyone realize at WB that the reason for declining ratings might be because their cartoons are crap as of late? Seriously, cartoons just aren't the same as they have been . Lately it all has to be about violence , and while the classics have had cartoon violence in the past, these seem to try to bring it to a more realistic level. And what's with the art? That's seriously ugly.

I thought it was bad enough when Bugs & the gang started showing up with 3d shading. This looks terrible and completely unlikable.

    * Lexi (Lola Bunny)
    * Duck (Daffy Duck)
    * Buzz (Bugs Bunny)

Wow this is horrific.  It's depressing to see how cartoons have changed and evolved with society.  I liked those cartoon characters and I absolutely LOVED other cartoons like Darwing Duck, Tailspin, DuckTales, Chip & Dale's Rescue Rangers, and more.  And now they have to create a spin of those older cartoon characters and make them more "modern"?  Bleh.

I liked this comment, on that blog link that was posted:

will the makers of the Buzz Bunny vibrator/clitoral stimulator sue Warner Brothers for trademark infringement? The Figure Farm division of Dutch visual production company, Seven's Heaven, also already have a character named "Buzz Bunny", so Warner might have to pay them off too.

Ya know, so video games get sued.  I hereby disavow Console Gold of any whatever the fuck the lawyers can think of because (some) lawyers are dick/shit sucking fucktards and should burn in hell for at least a few years for existing at all.
