In the year 2772, a meteor of unknown origin collides with the planet Earth, transforming it and some of its inhabitants forever. Included in this transformation are the descendants of the classic Looney Tunes characters, who become super-powered heroes, yet still retaining the wacky personalities of their ancestors. Written by
I was one of the people who thought this show would absolutely, completely suck and destroy the characters I loved as a kid (the original Looney Tunes). Having watched the first season, I think they only had two major problems.
1: They insisted on linking it to the Looney Tunes. 2: They let those god-awful "Extreme" versions of the characters see the light of day. Fortunately, they fixed them after the public screamed bloody murder.
You cannot watch this show with the original Looney Tunes firmly in mind and enjoy it for what it is. Or, for that matter, at all.
What they've got now is a reasonably good action cartoon, far better than most of the tripe that Kids WB has been putting on air in the past few years. Is it true to the Looney Tunes, and something that'll appeal to hard-core fans trying to see their old favorites in a new form? Heck no, that's why I listed Mistake #1. But if you watch it (at least after the first two episodes) without the "this is what they say the Looney Tunes should be" baggage involved, it's actually a pretty good show, and deserves a shot.
