* UncertainAudience: This show's biggest problem is that after the negative backlash to the original offering, the creators seemed unwilling to commit to being either too serious or too comical for fear of alienating potential viewers even more. As a result it's usually a little too silly for the action to really work, yet at the same time it also takes itself a little too seriously for the jokes and callbacks to the source material to work as well as they should've. The usual favorite example of this kind of wishy-washy treatment is at the end of the show's run where twice big rocks fall on Danger Duck and Sylth Vester, and it's supposed to be funny and forgotten after the next cut (with neither of them supposed to have a HealingFactor to explain this). Then one minute later the villains show up and Ace and Lexi can't blast their way out of a collapsed room because suddenly rocks falling on the Loonatics is something that would kill them.

* BrokenBase: The show had many detractors when it was still airing, bemoaning it as awful. But nowadays you can find a lot of devoted fans for the show [[NostalgiaFilter who saw it as kids]].

* DesignatedHero: Ace is supposed to be the greatest hero of all time, but has some questionable moments, especially in the second season. In "Secrets of the Guardian Strike Sword," for example, he calls out his rival for attacking him from behind, then later in the same fight takes advantage of said rival's distraction to attack '''him''' from behind. Worse, that same fight is supposed to prove that Ace is a "true warrior" and thus the one who really deserves to wield his CoolSword.

** The Royal Tweetums. Much like [[{{Expy}} ancestor]] Tweety in his very first 1940s incarnations, Tweetums is a self-centered {{jerkass}} who runs around getting into danger, is very obnoxious, and causes all sorts of pain and suffering for his caretakers when he's not treating them like crap. When foe Sylth Vester comes along, his reasons for trying to take out the little bastard include having had his head shoved into a singularity; he and Duck actually ''bond'' some over the abuse Tweetums has put both of them through. And the show wants you to believe installing him on the throne will ''prevent'' centuries of galactic warfare.

* WinBackTheCrowd: After the failure of ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'', which starred the classic versions of the characters, Warner Bros. attempted this with a [[YoungerAndHipper hipper, more modern]] take in an effort to connect with a younger crow, while the show did manage to do well enough to get a second season, some of the fanbase (both younger and older) were turned off by the premise.

** People who thought the show was actually a decent action-adventure show usually argue that including the Looney Tunes at all was a mistake and would have preferred all original characters and a focus on action instead of comedy.

* SuperlativeDubbing: The Mexican Spanish dub deserves a special mention: Traditionally, WarnerBros tends to dub almost all their animated, non-WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes-related series from the 90s to this date into Latin American Spanish in UsefulNotes/{{Venezuela}} since it's cheaper to dub there than in UsefulNotes/{{Mexico}}. This series[[note]]Along with ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', albeit that series was dubbed in Mexico due for [[RealitySubtext political reasons involving the late Hugo Chavez in the 2000s]][[/note]] is one the few modern animated ones dubbed by Mexican voice actors, rather than Venezuelan ones, even if WarnerBros [[LoopholeAbuse could invoked the fact the Loonatics are descendants of the original Looney Tunes just to avoid dubbing the series in Mexico]]. The reason for not dubbing the series in Venezuela could be the criticism the company received from Spanish-speaking fans about how the original ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' were dubbed by Venezuelans in both ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' and some few modern shorts.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The series is, shall we say, ''[[InternetBackdraft polarizing]]''. Possibly what occurs when executives at Creator/WarnerBros, after witnessing the financial bombing of ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'', decided to copy that "Anime" [[CriticalResearchFailure thing they'd heard so much about]] and make something the kids of today "understood". The original trailer didn't go over so well. When the harsher designs and dark setting hit the mainstream, Looney Tunes fans around the world revolted, complaining about what they saw as a crass attempt to appeal to its demographic and utter disrespect for its source material. Some say that Loonatics could have been more well received if it was not for Warner Bros' advertising campaign, which claimed that Loonatics was a newer, better version of the original Looney Tunes. Warner Bros. greatly revised the show from its pilot, especially when the news media got wind of an internet petition against the show started by an actual 11-year old boy. The result led to the character designs being softened and the concept altered ever so slightly.

* HilariousInHindsight: Ralph "Pa" Runner's animosity towards coyotes is reminiscent of the FantasaticRacism in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', specifically of Bonnie and Stu's animosity towards foxes.
