Now Is The Time To Buy The Looney Tunes Platinum Collection

Animation is perhaps not the first thing you think of when considering the possibilities for pristine image quality on a Blu-ray disc, but as Disney’s Lady and the Tramp just proved with what might be the best looking transfer ever to grace a little shiny disc, a well presented toon is truly a thing of […]

VIDEO: Snarf From Thundercats In His Own Looney Tunes Knock-Off

Snarf: Butterfly Blues was aired this week on the Cartoon Network and pretty swiftly posted to YouTube by a fan. It’s an attempt to stage a Looney Tunes style cartoon with the “loveable” Thundercats sidekick. There’s more than a touch of Roger Rabbit about it. Now, I understand the thinking here, but… I’m going to […]

Welcome Back, Sylvester And Tweety – It’s Been Too Long

After their successful trinity of fresh, 3D Road Runner toons, Warner Bros. have branched out and given a new short to Sylvester and Tweety. A new short, but with some very old talent attached. The basis for the toon’s soundtrack is Mel Blanc’s recording of the song I Tawt I Taw A Puddy Tat, so […]

Looney Tunes Headed To Blu-Ray

Announced at San Diego, and available for pre-order on Amazon right now, is the so-called Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume One. Several of the shorts included were part of the previous DVD sets, but not all of them, and most that were count as genuine cream-of-the-crop cartoons and I for one would like to get […]

New 3D Looney Tunes Announced, Archive Mel Blanc Recordings To Feature

After the success of the three new Road Runner shorts, shown in 3D before a series of Warner Bros. family movies over the last year, it seems like a nice development to press ahead bringing more Looney Tunes characters to life in the same format. Matthew O’Callaghan, who did a fine job last time around, […]

See Wile E. Coyote’s Remake Of 127 Hours

Josh Hylton writes for Bleeding Cool: For many months now, there has been a stigma attached to me in my local filmgoing community. I did not particularly like 127 Hours.* In fact, I consider it to be one of, if not the most overrated movie of last year and when my fellow cinephiles hear that, […]

Four Clips From The New Looney Tunes Show

The budgetary limitations are obvious, characters are often passive for seconds at a time, the script is driven by dialogue not… well, not animation, and it’s not quite Bugs and Daffy as we already know and love them, but… I think the redesigns are more than solid, some of the attitudes are great and there’s […]

Coyotes Beware: The Acme Warehouse Movie Is Going To Blow Up

Once upon a time*, I read about Brian Lynch’s plans for a Road Runner spin-off courtroom comedy. The premise was simple: a live action film with just one animated character, Wile. E Coyote, and he would be suing ACME for all of the hurt and pain they’ve caused him. I spent a good while digging […]

Give Your SatNav System A Looney Tune-Up

TomTom are selling the first two of their Looney Tunes voice packs, giving you the option of having either Bugs Bunny or Yosemite Sam give you directions. I’m not sure I’d trust the rabbit after his infamous wrong turns in Albuquerque. Coming up in October are Daffy Duck and Sylvester, then in November, two variants […]

Clip From And Blurb For The Next Road Runner Cartoon, Fur Of Flying

Earlier in the summer we were treated to the first new Road Runner toon in some time. It marked the characters’ first appearance in 3D CG, and the translation was a pretty successful one. The short was given a wide release in support of Cats and Dogs 2 but, despite their hugely lesser screentime, the racin’, […]
