Goodbye, ‘The Looney Tunes Show’… Hello, ‘Wabbit’!

Wabbit-A Looney Tunes Production

Unfortunately, I just recently read the confirmation of The Looney Tunes Show‘s cancellation after only two seasons. It was a great show — hilarious, and a fresh take on the Looney Tunes characters as they all lived in the same neighborhood in modern times. The songs were hit and miss, but many of the show’s main segments were amazingly funny, with Daffy being even more of a self-centered narcissist (is that possible?!?) and rooming with the usually calm, responsible, and centered Bugs — both of them living near the homes of Sam, Granny, Porky, etc.

However, the good news is that a new show centering around Bugs, called Wabbit is in production and should air in 2015! This fantastic news was confirmed at the 2014 Cartoon Network upfronts.

I think Wabbit is an excellent move for Cartoon Network. While I love Daffy and occasionally some other Looney Tunes characters (VERY occasionally), Bugs is and always has been the best and funniest part of any Looney Tunes segment. I’ve always disliked Sylvester and Tweety, for example, and I always hope against hope when I see that infamous Merrie Melodies logo that a Bugs Bunny cartoon is going to follow it!

So I’m pretty psyched for Wabbit. Shown above, in this post here, is the logo for the show that Cartoon Network has provided. We will provide more information on it as it comes down the pike.

Good stuff!
