Just to be accurate, Chuck Jones said that about the Space Jam version of Lola. Jones died in 2002, so he never got to see The Looney Tunes Show.Originally Posted by Looney Tunian
But to answer the question: no, I don't think Lola Bunny should be retired, and she won't be retired as long as she's popular with fans. If anyone at WB has a problem with Lola's portrayal, instead of retiring the character, they could just, I don't know, make Lola better. Why do so many people act like TLTS version of Lola is somehow the final definitive version of the character and there can or will be no others? All characters evolve. Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and most of the other Looney Tunes characters started out one way, then other directors changed them adding their own nuances. There's no reason why the same thing can't be done with Lola, though I personally don't mind the current take on the character.
