The Looney Tunes Show - bland.....

by
I like some of the designs of the characters, but the show just doesn't do it for me. I see these characters and expect something crazy or wild to happen and nothing happens! It's just like watching a sitcom most of the time. Lots of talking, a few social booboo's, and akward moments. I read some reviews on IMDB, and it boggled my brain seeing some people call it "the best cartoon out there today".  Seriously?  Does anybody even watch cartoons made before 1990 anymore?  I don't watch "TV" to have normal everyday suburban life thrown back at me. I watch shows to get anything BUT that, ya know? MLP stomps this show big time in the story department.

Since 1990?
The Justice League/ Justice League Unlimited series was rather well done, with lots of bit parts to flesh out the group and support the Original Seven.
The Batman (a WB retcon of the entire Dark Knight mythos) is enjoyable, and as refreshing as it is challenging.
Likewise, The Brave & The Bold is a very-fun homage to Bronze Age super-hero comix shtick. The Music Meister is one of the better television episodes, period, in the past ten years.
Samurai Jack is still one of the best teleplays produced in thirty years.
And in anime, both One Piece and Naruto are still worth watching, as the main characters are actually allowed to grow up and evolve, and the challenges get bigger as their own worlds expand ever outward.
There's plenty of good toonage out there. But yeah, you need to look to find it.

Mmmm...okay, Naruto is pretty good ^^ I just remember watching shows like The Mysterious Cities of Gold,  Duck Tales, and Transformers. Then all of a sudden Doug was on nickelodeon and just didn't seem as epic anymore. Then other shows started to follow the "one shot" format instead of being a full story. I think that's what bothers me the most.

In retrospect, TransFormers was balls. Uber-shoddy animation with so little in-betweens, with characters that were basically adult male human silhouettes covered in rectangular boxes. It's awful, and I can't watch it now.
Mysterious Cities Of Gold kept me hooked because of the "Gummi Bears Effect": what isolated, forgotten, still-functioning artifact of a lost civilization will we find in today's episode? Also, the character design is so delightfully dated by today's standards (like the effects animation and mech design).
Duck Tales (the first season done entirely for Disney by TMS, hence its consistent high quality) is simply one of the best TV series ever. I have two of their DVD collections in the den right now. It's so much fun, with some twenty years of experience and internet-driven education, to watch them now and be in on some of the more "adult" humor in each episode. Not even Disney can match the charm of Duck Tales, and that's a true and honest shame.

I thought the comment was just about the Looney Tunes, their older Tiny Toons for example. God good how I love the Happy World Land !! Now... an animated series, recent aaand good? Last Airbender, for starters. Legend of Korra was amazing too. Teen Titans, yeay baby! But not the all new one.

Thanks for including Teen Titans as well. An Amerian cartoon that's actually cartoony? What a concept!
And now I see that my absent-mindedness and Dyslexia got the better of me again. I just re-read Out Host's original comment to correct *you*, and see that it is I who needs correction.
Out Host typed "Does anybody even watch cartoons made before 1990 anymore?", which I read as " Does anybody even watch cartoons made after 1990 anymore?" See the slip? This happens with me quite frequently, and only with a retrospect cued by a second party, do I ever notice it.
But the overarching point still stands. There are still determined toonmakers out there that cannot be denied their ambition to make cartoons that are actually funny and engaging and challenging. As the posters in this discussion prove.

Agreed. Gang-rape comes to mind, but as much as she was left out of it, I do prefer the Space Jam Lola 100% Seems like two completely different characters too.

They are two different characters. The Lola from Space Jam was smart, sexy, and she knew how to flaunt it. The new Lola is, well, what one would consider to be a stereotypical blond (am not saying blondes are dumb, just Lola in this show). She is still sexy, but she just seems like she isn't all there anymore. In Space Jam, she had an aura about her that just made her that much more sexy lol.

As for the show itself, I have to agree. It is nothing like the original. Even Bugs isn't as sexy (he was my first crush and whom made me a furry, after all, who wouldn't fall for a crossdressing bunny with no qualms about kissing men hehe) as he once was. Plus, I don't like his blocky feet lol.

Well there was one scene I caught recently on the Looney Toons Show that almost makes sitting through it worth it. Couldn't find a clip. Daffy's coming out of the shower with a towel around his waist. Bugs is trying to fix a water pipe and failing, there's a female duck character there I don't recognize. At one point Daffy takes off the towel and hands it to Bugs. There's a silence, and Daffy looks at the female and says "Hey! My eyes are up here." and walks off. A win for the new age of cartoons. Later in that same episode, Lola claims she has X-Ray vision. Speedy immediately covers his crotch with his hat, and Lola says "I can totally see through that." Win times two.

I do agree with you.... Television has gotten tragic... not a single good cartoon for children, not one entertaining thing, nothing educational, nothing funny, nothing... it seems like no brains go into making them, and the effect on the kids watching them.............. Ive seen it.... kids that start watching this shit get more self absorbed, more of an "I can do anything I want without consiquence" attitude and crap... I think one of the worst ones is johny test.

None of them have a real story to them, none of them have anything funny or anything to them..... it seems so limited and uncreative.
thank god classic looney tunes comes on during the day

I'm just glad the old shows actually exist. At least it's proof that people can use their brains and something better is possible. I don't own a TV currently and very glad for it.

What?

MLP: Friendship is Magic, Legend of Korra, Adventure Time, Young Justice.  Off the top of my head, those are new/current shows that are great.

Don't be blinded by nostalgia, there's plenty of good cartoons out there now.

MLP is admitably pretty good
kora is tolerable
adventure time is painful to watch... I can feel it leach the braincells out of my head
...most modern cartoons are atrocious..... there area a few that arnt bad, but most are terrible

The new Loony Toons show is mega crap. You summed it up best as a bland "sitcom"

From what I have seen, I would say the reboot of Loony Toons is a VAST improvement over Loonatics Unleashed. But I don't care much for the current voice actors of the characters. Without Mel Blanc, the majority of characters just don't have the same appeal.

Devils Advocate : I like it. It's NOT perfect, but seriously.. compared to the other shit out there it's worlds better... Yes it's more sitcomy... but it's not the same rehash of shit OVER AND OVER.. they DO try... and yes.. The new Lola needs rape.. violent violent rape... up the ass... in a bad way!

thats funny...just last year everybody was saying that they love this show. now they're saying the show sux?

i guess they must be running out of ideas or they need new writers.

its an alright show...could be alot better though.

The on good thing this show has done is give Lola Bunny some depth to her character. She now fits the loopy Looney Tune mode, instead of being a dull bimbo that screamed executive meddling. I honestly, like the Looney Tune show. It started out rough but has its moments. Its only had one season, and i hear that season 2 will be trying to go back to more of the classic sensibilities. They're even altering some of the character design to reflect the classic cartoons more. From what i hear, they change Bugs color from purple to classic grey.

You can tell watching the show the often schizophrenia involved with some of the characters personalities. Daffy, for example seems to get crazier and crazier every episode. There personalities have been bouncing about like crazy, there's even one episode that seems like it was written for a different show. Look up "Casa de Calma" to get what I mean, Its a bit too looney tunes then you'd expect from the show as if it was a failed pilot or something.

I think if anything in season 1 the show was uneven, trying to see if it could combine the sitcom style with the classic looney tune mystique, so they're saying screw it with season 2 and adding more of the classic style. Lucky though, sense i heard it almost got cancelled. I can see how they are deciding to take a new approach due to feedback.

If ti lucky it comes back and starts to pick up and be a little more funny, or it might end up like scooby doo mystery inc, which seems to be in development hell after its first season.

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah I was feeling that way too.  They turned it into a sitcom which just...doesn't really WORK with the Looney Toons, the point of the toons is that they are RANDOM.  You can't have them in a stable domestic setting, that just doesn't work!  I like the designs and the style a lot because it's the same makers of Duck Dodgers, but...disappointing.

Now the Duck Dodgers show, THAT was awesome.

Theres only been a handful of amusing episodes. I do like some of the designs. Not to mention with the exception of ONE song the inbetween songs they do are just SO bad.

Fully in agreement. Imagine my bewilderment when I read reviews on the show. TV.com, forums, what have you. The show is just lost on me. As much as I adore Daffy, and the "new version" of Lola (Annoying has a new name, but she's cute) ... the show just plain not funny. Except in rare occasions. I've tried really hard to like the show, but dropped it after episode 4.

While I do agree that the show isn't as good as its older counterpart; understand that they were simply trying to take looney tunes in a new direction. They tried to make an adjustment that they thought would make it better and original, instead of reheshing the same thing with only different animation. (it still was pretty big miss for me though)

I always thought the NEW "Looney tunes show" was just bad its horribly done the thing that bugs me the most in the show is how the witch (not trying to be racist) sounds like a black women while that hairy red monster sounds like it hasn't even pass puberty yet the show is a huge downfall and did they really say "the best cartoon out there today"? seriously? My gosh does anyone know what a cartoon is anymore?
