Jessica D. Stone,
Pales in comparison to Muppet Babies....and Looney Tunes in general.
It's hard to pinpoint what makes this a not so great cartoon. The Looney Tunes characters are all here, though they have some different character traits. Sylvester and Tweety seem to get along just fine. Daffy and Bugs are good pals. Tazmanian Devil must have gotten dumber as he got older. Though he's the least intelligent and least vocal of the group, he's not just dumb like he is in Looney Tunes. The plots could be the problem. Unlike Rugrats or Muppet Babies, imagination is not nearly used as much, or seen on screen, and Baby Looney Tunes is usually just several babies doing boring baby activities.
Bugs and Lola Bunny (First seen in Space Jam), Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Taz the Tazmanian Devil, Sylvester the Cat and two pointless new characters, Petunia the pig and Melissa Duck, all have adventures under the watchful eye of their babysitter Granny. They learn life lessons and by the end of each twelve minute segment, have more wisdom than before.
Little kids may enjoy this, but people over the age of ten will be bored. Rugrats and Muppet Babies are still enjoyable to me. They're clever and full of satire. This is just a dumb kiddie show full of lame lessons and annoying voices. Better lessons and more entertainment can be found in many other kid's shows.
This paragraph is not a criticism of the show, but thinking about it, the downward spiral these characters make is rather tragic. Sylvester and Tweety have parents, but they must've been abandoned because in the Looney Tunes, Granny is their owner. Also, Sylvester is now always trying to kill Tweety, and Granny, the sweet old lady depicted here, is always hitting him. She must have become senile in her old age. Domestic violence and homicidal tendencies...so sad. Bugs Bunny learned all kinds of lessons on this show, but later just became a huge smart Alec, and Bugs could care less if Daffy Duck is blown to pieces and vice versa. I guess Taz moved to the wilderness in his later life and must have been lobotomized in the process, because he seems dumber in his later life. Also, doesn't Lola meet all the Looney Tunes when they are all adults in Space Jam? Hmmm, she must have forgotten her joyous baby experiences with them all. In fact they must have all forgotten their baby experiences of learning and fun to end up in the adults conditions they are all in. And that's exactly what this show is....extremely forgettable!
My rating: ** out of ****. 30 mins. TVY
