Reviews Comments: Give it a shot. What have you got to lose? The Looney Tunes Show whole series review by The Walking Anomaly

Remember House of Mouse? A well-loved cast was placed into a completely different, real-life type roles. If you went into the show with an open mind, you probably found it odd at first, but funny. It's the same here. If you expect the hijinks of the original Looney Tunes, forget it. You will not like this show. However, if you're willing to accept Bugs, Daffy, Porky and the rest of the gang as animated sitcom characters, you might be pleasantly surprised.

I'll live with the Merrie Melodies segments. The songs aren't Phineas And Ferb quality, but they are amusing, if for no other reason than you don't expect Yosemite Sam or Marvin the Martian singing anything.

My least favorite part are the Coyote and Road Runner segments. The only thing that has really changed is they've gone from hand-drawn to CG animation, which is a bit jarring, at least to me. Plot-wise, however, it's still poor Wile E. futilely chasing that bird through the desert. To be fair, though, I've never liked the Road Runner, so I don't know if I'd liked the cartoons under any circumstance.

I do hope the characters gain a little more depth as the series goes on (especially Daffy), but the show is a worthwhile effort at putting the Looney Tunes gang back on TV. (It's much, much more watchable than Loonatics Unleashed, if that's what you're worried about.)

Oh for the love of......PEOPLE DON'T HATE IT BECAUSE IT ISN'T A NOTE FOR NOTE EXACT REMAKE OF THE ORIGINAL SHORTS! Will people just get over that? I went into the show with an open mind expecting, no, not a recreation of the original shorts, but a decent funny take on a sitcom with the Looney Tunes characters in the major roles. What I got instead was a dialogue heavy, generic boring a sin sitcom with massively derailed Looney Tunes who were clearly just thrown in because they had the rights to the characters. I hate because They Just Didnt Care about these characters and just use them fill in blanks in their little "how to make sitcom characters" sheets and stick them in wherever.

You like it? Fine, like it! Go ahead, thats what opinions are for! I WISH I liked it as much as you do. Just stop shoving all of the people who hate it as being the same retrophile snobs at Cartoon Brew (the only reason I even referenced them in my review is because I admit they were right about the show sucking.)

I share your opinion on the Wile E. segments. Personally, I just don't like the feel of the CGI, but it's a minor part of the show and easily ignored to me. Not unwatchable, but I like the original better in this situation. I am extremely picky with my like of CGI, however.

I find the Merrie Melodies really amusing, Marvin's "I'm a Martian" refuses to get out of my head.

For the rest of the show, I like it. I'm really interested in seeing if Elmer will appear, and how they have him interact with Bugs... All in all, I find it a good show, and will continue to watch it regardless of any hate thrown at it. I'm fine with the derailing. I'll sail with it and see where it goes. Honestly, the original Bugs probably wouldn't work too well here. In my mind, the Character Derailment is more of Character Development. I see it as the characters just changing with time, such as Bugs becoming more mature. YMMV, as haters show, but haters gonna hate.

I wasn't sure about the show when it first premiered. After I saw it, though, I really liked it. It might just be me, but I like the fact that there is some kind of continuity to this show rather than a bunch of standalone segments. Had that been the case, I probably would not enjoy the series as much. I think people should at least give it a shot.
