Ok, so if the other reviews are any implication, my review gave the idea that the only reason this don't like the show is because it isn't EXACTLY like the original shorts. This is not the case. I was not expecting a note for note remake of the original shorts,I was expecting:
- Decent writing
- Well constructed jokes
- good comic timing
- Stories and jokes about the Looney Tunes in modern Sitcom situations, not derailed
characters that don't resemble the Looney tunes at all
- Music that didn't desperately plead to be relevant
- For the creators to be respectful to the original characters instead of just using their faces and pasting them over their own boring characters.
So yeah, guess my expectations were too high. My bad I guess.
- Original Review** (some stuff taken out to add the update)
Lets just get straight to the point: It's Ctrl Alt Del
meets Looney Tunes
. Tons of unfunny talking with Bugs and Daffy pasted over boring uninteresting characters.
The basic premise according to the creators is "The Looney Tunes as a sitcom", but upon watching the show, it is painfully obvious the real premise is "Sitcom required by contract to put Looney Tunes characters in it". Need a straight man? Just make it Bugs. Need someone who's Too Dumb To Live
to play off that straight man? WHY DAFFY OF COURSE! Need an even dumber neighbor to move next door? Yosemite Sam will do! Atleast they rename Witch Hazel as Lezah to justify making her a Sassy Black Woman
. Its still stupid, but they tried.
The show also treats us to its own "Merrie Melody" segments, songs that appear to be made by the same guy who said "WE KNOW WHAT KIDS LIKE, WE'RE RELEVANT!" when Loonatics Unleashed
was being made. So far 3 of the songs (I'm a Martian, Blow My Stack, and the Chicken Hawk song) being unbearably awful raps and the other one being Grilled Cheese, Elmer Fudds deranged twisted love ballad to his grilled cheese. And yes, they are all as awful as they sound and are the worst part of the show.
The animation of the show is pretty well done, and I'm in the group who thinks the new Lola is actually entertaining, meaning the funniest thing in this show is the affirmative action mary sue from Space Jam
. And as bad as the rest of the show is, thats not surprising.
