Looney Tunes Cartoons S1Watch all of it now
Warner Bros. and HBO Max are bringing back one of the best things on TV ever – Looney Tunes Cartoons! And they’re daffier, crazier, and loonier than ever, with 20 all-new episodes (and more in the pipeline) that see Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester and Tweety, the Road Runner and other favourites up to their old antics with hilarious misadventures inspired by the original classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies.
Most episodes consist of two full shorts and a brief mid-episode vignette. True to the spirit of the originals, there’s still loads of insane cartoon violence and Acme Corporation weaponry, but parents will be happy to see that they’ve excluded any depictions of firearms.
The series has already nabbed a 2021 Annie Award for its storyboarding, with a further nomination for character design (they’ve gone back to the character designs from the early ‘40s). It has an 8.1/10 score on IMDb, an 88% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and four stars on Common Sense Media, where it’s recommended for ages 7+. ScreenCrush calls the new series, “the most authentic Looney Tunes since the glory days of Chuck Jones and Friz Freleng,” and Wall Street Journal reviewer John Anderson says, “The new Looney Tunes Cartoons are ‘good for kids,’ as my 7-year-old consultant concluded, but they also honor the anarchic spirit of the original Looney Tunes.”
