The first two episodes of The Looney Tunes Show were reviewed independently by three different toonzone staff members. Their opinions: Ian Lueck: “A Misleading Show Name” The main problem with The Looney Tunes Show is that it’s just boring. For a theatrical series which was rarely boring, this is a cardinal sin.

"The Looney Tunes Show": A Misleading Show Name

by Classic Speedyon May 3, 2011
Looney Tunes was one of the first cartoon series I ever watched, and I’ve always been a fan. Currently, I own all six Golden Collections, all the compilation movies released to DVD, a couple made-for-TV specials, and three of the four Super-Stars volumes. And I don’t just watch the cartoons. I’m interested in the history: […]

"The Looney Tunes Show": The Merry-Go-Round Is Still Broken Down

by Maxie Zeuson May 3, 2011
Let’s look on the bright side. If Loonatics Unleashed, Warner Bros.’ previous attempt to revive its classic Looney Tunes characters, was appalling, at least we can say that The Looney Tunes Show, its latest attempt, is no worse than dull. Here’s the thing about classic cartoon shorts from the 1930s and 1940s: Their characters were […]

"The Looney, Looney, Looney Bugs Bunny Movie": Friz Had to Pay the Bills, Too

by Ed Liuon April 27, 2009
When I was a wee lad of 10 or 11, I remember bugging my mother to take my older brother and me to see The Looney Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie in theaters. As I recall, we were rebuffed because my mother didn’t see the point of ponying up money and time to see something […]
