Tries to copy the original shorts and fails miserable.
God awful would be an understatement for this abomination. I could only stomach a few episodes of it due to its horrible attempts at slapstick and its puke worthy character designs.
I am a huge fan of both the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies shorts and the sitcom style Looney Tunes Show, which I think gets a little too much hate. At least it tried to be different and stand out from the originals unlike this dreck.
Its first major problem is it's trying very hard to be like the old theatrical shorts and it just wont work. The reason why, for starters, is its focused on ONE character Bugs Bunny. In these five minute long episodes you see the same characters going through same shtick every time. The old shorts had many characters with different "shticks" so you can see something new and someone else in each cartoon. Secondly the slapstick humor just doesn't work as well it used to back in the day especially since it's toned down now. Thirdly Squeaks is an unnecessary character especially since they had an entire library of Looney Tunes characters to go with. He's very annoying and doesn't talk and I find him dreadfully boring.
Let's talk about Bugs Buuny a bit. His design is pretty bad, I would say it's worse than his design in season one of the Looney Tunes Show and that was pretty bad. His attitude and demeanor doesn't scream like Looney Tunes to me and if you're trying to copy the old shorts he has to have at least a similar attitude. Even if you're going with Chuck Jones's Bugs Bunny he still isn't right.
Let's go into some of the other characters. I already told you about Squeaks so lets go to Yosemite Sam. He is BY FAR the worst looking character in this show. Looks nothing like his original design, completely left field with his look. I mean it's hard while watching the show with him in it because his design is just so distracting that I can't even pay attention to what's going on in the show. And oh boy, Wile e Coyote. Yeah, he makes a few appearances, and his character design is not much better than Sam's. They're using the talking "genius" version of Wile e Coyote which I kind of like, they rarely use that version of him in any Looney Tunes cartoons so it was nice to see that. If you can get past his horrible design then he's tolerable, at best.
Let's talk about the length of each episode. They are about five minutes long and offer very little in set-ups and plots. It just doesn't work as a TV show. The animation isn't on par with the old shorts nor is the jokes. They poorly copied the old short's formats and it just doesn't translate well in today's age. Especially since there's no nostalgia factor; there's no good looking background settings; the classical music that we're used to isn't there; and it lacks a lot of the other great characters.
This show is so unbelievable bad. I couldn't, of sound mind, recommend this show for anybody. Fan or not of the Looney Tunes steer clear of this show at all costs. At least until they fix some these issues like making longer episodes, putting in more characters, and giving everyone a face lift. It needs to be its own show instead of copying something it could never be.
