New Looney Tunes (Season 2 and onwards, because Season 1 is still airing in the United States, the show is still known as Wabbit - A Looney Tunes Production) is a Warner Bros. Animation produced series for Boomerang/Cartoon Network. This new series was announced at Cartoon Network's upfront in 2014 to replace The Looney Tunes Show.

The shorts focus on Bugs Bunny with new adventures in the form of shorts. In the later seasons, other characters will be the main stars, as revealed on Boomerang France's Facebook page[1]. The show was called bugs! in Europe for Season 1.

The series features two five-minute shorts in each fifteen-minute block and four five-minute shorts in each half-hour block. Originally the series was planned to air exclusively on Boomerang, but the series aired on Cartoon Network on September 21, 2015 due to last-minute scheduling changes. [2]

New episodes have been announced to be aired in the United States after a year-long hiatus. The new episodes will be released through Boomerang's SVOD service in addition to airing on television. However, the new episodes have yet to surface on the SVOD platform. [3] As of April 7, 2017, with episodes sporadically returning to television, the show has moved to Boomerang permanently as the case with all Warner Bros. Animation shows, sans Teen Titans Go!.

New Looney Tunes has been renewed for a third season according to Bob Bergen's forum post.[4]

Description

New Looney Tunes was announced at Cartoon Network Upfront 2014 for a 2015 premiere. [5]

"The hilarious, heroic and mischievous Bugs Bunny you love is back! From Warner Bros. Animation, Bugs stars in an all-new series consisting of comedic shorts that find the iconic carrot-loving rabbit matching wits against (and getting the best of) classic characters like Yosemite Sam and Wile E. Coyote. Along the way, Bugs encounters brand-new foes…and he has help from new friends like Bigfoot and Squeaks the Squirrel."


In Wabbit/New Looney Tunes, the Looney Tunes return to their slapstick-comedy roots. Each episode contains two shorts, starring Bugs Bunny as the main character.

Other Looney Tunes characters such as Wile E. Coyote and Yosemite Sam, show up to annoy him. Some characters are given new traits: Wile E. Coyote, for example, is Bugs' smart-aleck neighbor (akin to Wile E.'s previous outings with the rabbit), Yosemite Sam has a pudgy appearance and a larger mustache, and the Tasmanian Devil (renamed "Theodore Tasmanian") is employed as an accountant, though he represses his true self.

Added in are new characters who come to befriend Bugs like Squeaks the Squirrel and a childlike version of Bigfoot.

Likewise, Bugs faces new villains, but not without the help of his friends. Bugs faces off against ninjas, barbarians, terminators, and a rabbit version of the Grim Reaper named Carl the Grim Rabbit.

Notes

  • This is yet another Looney Tunes spin-off to introduce new characters but focus on mainly one character, Bugs Bunny. However this has been retooled in the second season, in where there are episodes that focus on other Looney Tunes characters as well as Bugs.
  • Originally, Squeaks the Squirrel has a different prototypical design.[citation needed|date=]


  • The TV Guide Comic-Con Special Issue featured a redesigned version of Squeaks the Squirrel.[citation needed|date=]
