If Chuck Jones was alive would he have hated TLTS?

    Seeing how he hate both Tiny Toons and Space Jam, do you think he would've felt the same way about The Looney Tunes Show?

    That's going to be impossible to certainly determine. ;-)
    Any animator's attitudes and tastes can change over time.
    Sure, he stated what he thought about TTA [I've never looked up Chuck Jones's opinion on it] and Space Jam, but as to TLTS, it'll be speculation on anyone's part.

    We'll never know, since Mr. Jones is no longer with us and no one can ask him. Sure, we can speculate what he might have thought of the show, but as Narfpinky pointed out, peoples' opinions can and will vary, so what he truly would've thought of TLTS is impossible to determine.

    My guess is that he would hate it, I can imagine him saying "Is this supposed to be funny?" and perhaps sighing in annoyance or disappointment at some of the jokes, and among other things he probably wouldn't have liked that Bugs wasn't a trickster who didn't really retaliate if someone was bothering him, Daffy being a moron, and Witch Hazel and Gosamer's reimagining as a mother and son who act and sound nothing like they did in the classic shorts.

    Yes, because people on the internet hated TLTS, so he would've hated it too. Makes perfect sense.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.

    I guess that he would have a heart attack if he sees how The Looney Tunes Show is entirely different than the shorts he worked on!

    Come now. The Looney Tunes Show wasn't that bad. I'll admit that it wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either. TLTS was a miss, to be sure, but it wasn't another Loonatics Unleashed.

    While there is no way to prove this. He would probably have hated it, yes. For being writer driven.

    If Chuck disliked Tiny Toons, there's a good chance he would've hated TLTS too. There's no way to know this for sure, of course, but based on his criticisms of modern day animation in general, it's a guess with some precedent.

    Remember, he coined dialog-heavy shows "illustrated radio". TLTS being less visual gag-based than the classic LT shorts, it's almost certainly something he would've said the same about TLTS.
