Trivia / The Looney Tunes Show

  • Actor Allusion: Pepe is voiced by Rene Auberjonois, who also voiced Eric's singing French chef, Louis in The Little Mermaid.
  • Development Hell: This show tried to get off the ground for a few years, and when we finally had a premier date, it ended up getting pushed back about 3 times. The show's concept was overhauled at least once.
  • Name's the Same: Cartoon Network had an installment show that was named The Looney Tunes Show that ran from 2000 to 2004. Unlike this show, the first Looney Tunes Show was just a collection of classic Looney Tunes shorts from Cartoon Network's library (in a similar vein to CBS's "The Bugs Bunny Road Runner Show," ABC's "The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show," The WB's "That's Warner Bros" [later renamed "The Bugs and Daffy Show"], FOX's "The Merrie Melodies Show," and Nickelodeon's "Looney Tunes on Nick").
  • Non-Singing Voice: Marvin the Martian's speaking voice is Eric Bauza, but his singing voice is Damon Jones.
    • Foghorn Leghorn's speaking voice is Jeff Bergman, but his singing voice is also Damon Jones, which is weird because Jeff Bergman does his own singing for Bugs and Daffy.
    • Speedy Gonzales is voiced by Fred Armisen, but in "Queso Bandito," his singing voice is, once again, Damon Jones. Strangely enough, in Speedy's nexy two Merrie Melodies ("Pizzarriba" and "Table For One"), his singing voice is- guess who- Fred Armisen.
      • Possibly because "Queso Bandito" portrays Speedy at a younger age. And to be fair, Jones does make Speedy sound higher pitched than usual.
    • Henery Hawk's singing voice is, last time now, Damon Jones. (but only on "Chickenhawk") His speaking voice ("Father Figures") and singing voice ("Christmas Rules") in later episodes are by Ben Falcone.
  • Screwed by the Network: The final episode premiered in the U.S. a year after the rest of Season 2.
  • The Other Darrin: Stan Freberg was going to reprise the role of Pete Puma, but was quickly replaced with John Kassir. The voice difference is highly noticeable compared to Freberg's Pete Puma voice.
    • Tina Russo was voiced by Jennifer Esposito in Season 1, and now, in Season 2, is voiced by Annie Mumolo.
    • Pepe Le Pew was voiced by Rene Auberjonois in Season 1 and Jeff Bergman in Season 2.
    • Lola's mother, Patricia, was voiced by Grey DeLisle in Season 1 and Wendi McLendon-Covey in Season 2.
    • For the 2015 movie Rabbits Run, Lola is voiced by Rachel Ramras instead of Kristen Wiig.
  • Talking to Himself: Interesting that all of the characters in these examples are voiced by Jeff Bergman.
    • Bugs and Daffy.
    • Sylvester and Tweety.
  • What Could Have Been: Paul Dini was originally on-board years ago, but most of the writers were fired in development from the execs wanting fresher, younger ones, and he left to produce the live-action series Tower Prep.
