Wabbit- A Looney Tunes Production
(or simply Wabbit.
), is a 2014 Cartoon Network
original cartoon featuring the eponymous Looney Tunes
, following The Looney Tunes Show

Animation. The show also returns to the Sketch Comedy
format of various segmented shorts, this time adding brand new loony friends and enemies to add to the established ones, such as Bugs Bunny's new friends Bigfoot and Squeaks the Squirrel.
Named after Elmer Fudd's famous title for Bugs' species under his speech impediment
. Not to be confused with the original cartoons with the same word or just "rabbit", such as "Duck Rabbit Duck
