    Bad news, LTS and SD:MI fans! The shows are cancelled!

    Like This Thread!

    Yep. You heard me. Both the Looney Tunes Show and Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated have been cancelled and it's not a joke. I've been told by one of the people working on TLTS about it (this person shall remain unnamed), so you can be sure that it's the official news.

    The executive producers of both shows, Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone, meant from the beginning to make only 52 episodes for each show, so they can run daily on CN. So much for the cause of cancellation.

    Here's some extra news for the Scooby fans. Spike and Tony are planning to make another Scooby Doo series since the character is so popular. (Just like Tom and Jerry who are already returning in a new show that's coming up this year).

    What about the Looney Tunes? Well, nothing yet, that's for sure. No plans for them right now. However, anything can happen, so we'll just wait until Spike and Tony come up with some new show for the Looney Tunes. As for now, TH-TH-TH-THAT'S ALL FOLKS!

    Can you give us a source that proves this? Cuz after all, Looney Tunes WAS announced at the upfront for returning series. We don't need to know the name of the person but is there a source that proves this? There should be at least that.

    It seemed pretty likely Looney Tunes Show was only going to last 52 episodes. That's a good run. MAD will probably end with roughly 52 half hours (104 standard episodes) and Tom & Jerry will most likely last about 52 episodes as well. I was not expecting 78 half hours out of any of them because CN doesn't do that much especially for Warner Bros. cartoons which they do not fully own.

    That person told me on FB. Appearantly the WB execs changed their minds and cancelled it seeing as it was heavily criticized in the beginning.

    Yeah so about a year from now we'll probably get another Scooby-Doo series but you really start to ask yourself if they shouldn't just keep the same show going instead of rebooting again. I'm guessing CN/WB wants Spike and Tony to make a more traditional Scooby-Doo series that isn't continuity heavy.

    This doesnt really make a lot of sense. Tony Cervone said so himself that he and Spike would be moving on from Scooby after it was finished. As for the whole "Looney Tunes being criticized from the beginning" that never stopped them before seeing as how they continued on with a second season. besides if it was that big a deal they could easily change up the formula for a later season. I'm friends with him and Mitch Watson on facebook so i'll prob ask them for myself to be sure.

    Plus, I don't think the sitcom format would work for the Looney Tunes anyway.

    Well, if I only could, I'd add Wile E. Coyote to the suburban setting as a local (accidental) genius (pretty much like Tiny Toons' Calamity Coyote or The Simpsons' Professor Frink) who's still after the Road Runner, but Wile E. would move to the cul-de-sac (as Bugs and Daffy's new neighbor) thinking that it'd be a better place to make inventions, while still chasing the Road Runner on the desert. That would lead to many clever interactions and funny situations between him and the others and it would even make the writing style more "wacky". Just think about it. Wile E. Coyote as Bugs and Daffy's new neighbor. It has so many possibilities. I've even came up with two cool story ideas.
    1) Wile E. moves into the neighborhood and Daffy thinks that he's a spy.
    2) One of Wile E.'s inventions causes Lola and Tina to switch personalities. I came up with this one when I realized that Tina's attitude is similar to that of Space Jam's Lola Bunny and Lola's current personality is what (in my opinion) Melissa Duck would be like if she wasn't redesigned into Tina Russo.
    Too bad they decided to cancel it. I mean, my concept would pretty much improve the show's writing style. Don't tell me this wouldn't work.

    SD:MI I can understand. The storyline just finished at a good point. And let's hope the next Scooby show is just as good as that one.

    The Looney Tunes Show...that doesn't really make much sense. Everyone was just starting to warm up to the series, and they decide to can it right when it leaves the Scrappy Heap? TLTS wasn't my favorite show, but I don't really see why they had to can it already.
    And then my post was finished.

    I'm still not convinced. like i said earlier, Tony already said he was moving on from Scooby after Mystery Incorporated so i'm not sure that info is true plus if bad criticism was really why decided to cancel the show, don't you think they would've just cancelled the show after season 1? bad criticism didn't stop the show first time. why should it stop it now? I just messaged Tony now. When he responds i'll know for sure if this is true or not.

    Ok so i heard back from Tony. Two things: 1: You're right. Looney Tunes has been cancelled but it wasn't for the bad criticism. It was only announced at the upfront as a returning season not series. That's all. and 2: I was right. Tony and Spike are not currently planning and new Scooby show. So for Scooby, hopefully one day he will have a new show again. For LTS, you're right. That really is all... for now. Pardon me for double posting.

    I'm sure that Scooby Doo will get another series at some point. They love making a new series every few years. I'm not sure about Looney Tunes though.

    I'm not surprised about Mystery Incorporated, I thought it was already obvious that it wasn't going to get a third season, even though that would have been awesome, but The Loony Tunes Show being cancelled is a bit of a surprise for me. I never really got into it, especially with how much I disliked the first season and Daffy was beyond unlikable, but that's too bad for the people who did like it.

    Also, looneyfan93, please give sources for your claims in the future. Simply saying that it was from someone who works on the show without providing any concrete evidence makes your claims questionable. Not to mention spreading around the idea that the series was cancelled from the criticism for the first season when that wasn't the case is spreading false information, which isn't really encouraged here. There was absolutely no reason to keep your source vague when you could have posted an image of his response or summarize it like Brad12 did. This goes for anyone who claims some news, but I just wanted to make sure that you knew as well.

    I agree- we need reliable sources, not hearsay. I, for one, am not acknowledging that report unless there's official information. BTW, if this is based on hearsay and not official information, why hasn't this thread been locked? This looks like just cause to close this discussion.
    Like it or not, I never apologize for being a fan of whomever they may be.

    You want proof? Okay, I'll give you a proof. But first, does anyone know how can I post a picture from my computer?

    Actually, Jessica Borutski, TAG Blog, and LinkedIn accounts stated that TLTS isn't returning.

    And I saw the tweet from Tony Cervone saying they're done with Scooby. The newest Scooby movies are being handled by other people (James Tucker helmed Mask of the Blue Falcon for example, and Brandon Vietti's doing the WWE crossover DTV), while the new Tom and Jerry series is being co-produced with Renegade (Hi-Hi Puffy Ami Yumi).

    Besides, with the cancellations of all the WB shows save MAD (though that'll probably bite the dust this year), there's Beware the Batman, Teen Titans GO!, and Tom and Jerry at the moment.

    Because other people have been able to provide information from more reliable sources than saying that they heard it from someone who works on the shows. If those are discredited, which I don't think that they are, then either one of the other Cartoon Network moderators or myself will close the thread.

    Yes, proof for your claims is important. You can't just throw just make a claim like this without any proof to back it up since people are going to find it questionable at the very least. Unfortunately, I don't know how to post a picture from a computer here. Posting a link to the information, like if it was a conversation on Facebook, would work too.

    Upload it to some image site like flickr, imgcake or whatever. There's lots of them.
