Storyline

Bugs Bunny, the famous, Oscar-winning cartoon rabbit, hosts his first weekly television series, along with all his fellow Warner Brothers cartoon stars, including Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, the Tasmanian Devil, Tweety Bird, Sylvester Cat, the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Pepe Le Pew, Foghorn Leghorn, and Speedy Gonzales. Each episode features three theatrical cartoons introduced by Bugs and/or the other characters, and often with a unifying idea, or theme. Many episodes feature Bugs as a lecturer on such subjects as cats, dogs, birds, and humans, and offering classic Warner Brothers cartoon footage to comically illustrate his points.

always was a welcome treat on replays Saturday mornings
25 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Somehow, despite this show being listed from 1960, which I don't doubt it was, I watched this almost every weekend for years during my Saturday Morning cartoon craze. It was simply that one of the networks amid the usual hubbub, and probably late in the morning, this show would come on and some great (and occasionally less than great Looney Tunes shorts would come on. They were characterized by an almost by-the-numbers intro song that becomes all the more catchy the more times you watch the show (maybe on some sort of unreal level). The show would also keep a sort of consistency with allowing the material all through (though on occasion, for a ridiculous reason, things got cut out of certain episodes), and with playing really a set group of episodes from a time released. I loved it, and wish more of this could be shown for today's youth as opposed to simply the two major camps (computer animation or anime). There's something about the Looney Tunes that sticks with you, if you do look at them as more than just for kids, sometimes all for the sake of a goofy gag, though more creative than one might expect.
