That’s what fans of the studio’s classic cartoon characters might be asking after they get a look at the new, futuristic versions of some of their favorite animated heroes, which Warner unveiled yesterday.
The Looney Tunes characters — six in all — have been "reimagined" (in studio parlance) for a new series called "Loonatics," which is set to air next fall on WPIX/Channel 11 as part of the Saturday morning Kids’ WB program lineup.
The show features new versions of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, the Tasmanian Devil, Road Runner and Lola Bunny (the newest of the characters, who was introduced in the 1996 Michael Jordan movie "Space Jam").
For "Loonatics," the six characters are being projected 700 years into the future, given superpowers, and outfitted in tight-fitting, slenderizing space gear. [Source]
I have long suspected it and this clinches it. Somewhere along the way I must have had a transporter accident and ended up in the bearded Spock universe. Recently PBS CEO Pat Mitchell resigned more than likely for being busted over Buster the bunny visiting a farm with a lesbian couple. I say leave our bunnies alone.
How about this for a Catholic segue. For a more sane looney, here is a column today at Catholic Exchange on vocations by 15 year old Eddie Looney.
It’s a long time since I realized that I must have blundered through a gap in the fabric of space and wound up in the Stupid Universe. I daresay it happened in fifth grade, when I tripped and slammed my head against a radiator, knocking myself out for a few minutes. It was definitely not long afterward that I noticed that the whole world had gone cockeyed. (Of course, that was 1970, so perhaps it was the real world after all and it had gone cockeyed.)
