"Places everyone! Roll camera! Cue the shield!"
Microsoft Sam (at the beginning of a typical episode)

Looney Tunes Intro Bloopers, later known as LT Bloopers and LT Parodies, is a series by YouTuber davemadson entertainment inc, which stars Microsoft Sam, Microsoft Mike, Microsoft Mary, Microsoft Anna, L&H Michael, L&H Michelle, the Speakonia Tru Voice voices, and Dave Madson as himself.

The series involves the characters working at Warner Bros. Studios, and trying to make the intro for the Looney Tunes cartoons. It goes wrong 95% of the time, not helped by the fact that Satan's minions (initially the Devil, later joined by the She-Devil, who were renamed Lucifer and Lucretia at a later date, and then joined by Vulcanna Ash and an evil version of Dave) often crash the studio to take Dave and co. to Hell for some sin they refuse to divulge on, but are always sent back to Hell by God Himself.

The series started on April 20, 2011, "temporarily went on hiatus" on April 4, 2014 note , and then returned on January 11, 2017, after Dave restarted his account. All episodes from LTIB 93 to LTIB 100 were made in 2014 prior to the channel's original shutdown, and new episodes began premiering on January 22, 2017 with LT Bloopers 101.

Additionally, during the hiatus, various YouTube channels have re-uploaded the series. All 92 episodes from the 2011-2014 run have been uploaded on a channel called "File Preserver".

Looney Tunes Intro Bloopers provides examples of:

  • Action Girlfriend: Anna, whenever she uses her laser eye powers to defeat a scary logo.
  • Actually Pretty Funny:
    • As much as Sam gets annoyed by the bloopers, he does find some bloopers to be funny.
    • In Episode 43, we learn that their boss, Mr. Warner, loves the bloopers. So much so that he wants to include them in his blooper reels.
  • Aesop Amnesia: Sam never seems to learn that tantrum throwing is harmful towards his health (such as blowing his head off at times) and doesn't stick to his word about not being a complete control freak.
  • All for Nothing: Banning the frequent appearances of Devil (Lucifer) and She-Devil (Lucretia) from Dave's videos, stopping Sam's control freak tendencies (zapping Sam to rid another tic controllosa), and Sam's firing of Scotty/Guy. All for nothing!
  • All Women Are Lustful: In recent episodes, the She-Devil has the hots for Dave.
  • Always Identical Twins: Scotty and Guy are fraternal twins, as revealed in Episode 41.
  • Ambiguously Jewish: Averted with Sidney. He is explicitly stated that he is Jewish.
  • Anachronism Stew: Despite the characters working on a Looney Tunes intro from the 1940's, that intro is often substituted with references or logos from much later eras, such as the Windows 7 or modern restaurant logos.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification/Moe Anthropomorphism: Starting with Episode 20, the characters are given somewhat realistic human-like designs.
  • Argument of Contradictions:
    • For example:
      Scotty: I did not!
      Sam: You did too!
      Scotty: I did not!
      Sam: You did too!
      Dave: Children children...
    • And often:
      Sam: Asswipe!
      Mike: Sonofabitch!
  • Art Evolution: Subtle but since Episode 19, the characters design gradually change.
  • Art Shift: Due to Dave being a photo, he will shift from live action to hand drawn whenever he throws a tantrum, when he vomits or gets thrown out of the studio. Also, whenever Dave expresses shock or yells, an open mouth will be drawn on him.
  • Artifact Title: The 2018 remake of Episode 1 is still titled, The Shield Gets an Attitude, despite having its script revised to feature a Shield Guy, rather than the WB shield being sentient like in the original.
  • Author Avatar: Dave Madson himself as of Episode 33 as portrayed in a photo. From Episode 101 onward, he is hand-drawn to match the rest of the cast.
  • Benevolent Boss: Mr. Warner, to everyone except Sam. Although it's not like Sam doesn't deserve being called out from time to time.
  • Berserk Button: Nearly everyone has at least one of these.
    • Sam's hatred of commercial plugs, when someone interferes with what he thinks is justified, calling him a control freak, and when someone steals his trademark laugh line.
    • Calling Mike an asswipe; he usually responds by calling Sam a son of a bitch and/or threatening him. Flirting with Mary is another one for him. As of Episode 55, calling him a turkey is also one.
    • It's not a good idea to call Mary a bitch, or assume she's loony.
    • You shouldn't call Anna a "harlot", or make her say a bad word and then tell her to watch her language. Also don't test her sanity just like Michael did in Episode 73. Also, don't keep Sam away from her.
    • Don't call L&H Michael a "wild turkey", as Sam did in Episode 37. And also "dumbass" in Episode 76.
    • Don't try to tell L&H Michelle that she is a "lesbian harlot", as Sam did in Episode 31. Or make jokes about her face in Episode 73.
    • If you fire Scotty, he'll kill himself.
    • Don't suggest that Jimmy needs a head transplant or say that he's an asswipe.
    • Don't try and frame Hank for something that you did wrong and get him suspended for it.
      • Coincidentally, Scotty did both of the above things in Episode 46.
    • Don't call Guy a reprobate or make fun of his deceased pet dogs.
    • Don't claim that Sidney is a heavy drinker.
    • Never ever, call Beulah "fatso". As Sam will tell you, it usually results with him being thrown around the studio.
    • If Abby is nearby, don't threaten Dave, who is her boyfriend.
    • Don't threaten to send the Devil and She-Devil after Dave, threaten to punch his lights out, or try to take over his studio, or tell him he needs a shower when he's clean.
    • The Devil and the She-Devil hate it when God and the Angel interfere with their attempts to take the characters to Hell.
    • In Episode 60, Mr. Warner threw a tantrum when Dave told him that Sam's control freak tendencies may never completely go away.
    • In Episode 104, Robo Soft 3 threw a tantrum after Dave called a joke "lame", then "worn".
  • Big "SHUT UP!": In Episode 61, Dave yells "Shut up!" after Sam yells Scotty's name and Scotty yells Sam's name in the same manner (A running gag in recent episodes).
  • Break Up Demand: Microsoft Sam would sometimes attempt to break up Scotty and Beulah (usually after firing the former), but fails.
    • Ever since Scotty and Beulah married in Episode 72, he sometimes demands them to divorce during his control freak episodes, which of course fails.
  • Breather Episode: The Christmas special, which also marked Guy's return to the series.
  • Butt-Monkey: Bordering on The Chew Toy, Radar Overseer Scotty. Guy the Shield Guy, Scotty's twin brother, also qualified in the earlier episodes.
    • Sam qualifies as a major Butt Monkey as well.
    • The Devil and The She-Devil are this to God and the Angel.
    • The Angry P-Head and The Two Headed P-Head are always beaten back by Anna using her laser eye powers.
  • Catchphrase: Sam yelling Scotty's name when he mucks about with the opening sequence. Also, Scotty responding with "You bellowed, Saaaaaaaaam?".
    • Also Sam's signature laugh, "Hahahahahahahahah soi soi soi soi rofl rofl rofl rofl" and "Now cut that out."
    • Anna (to any scary logo that threatens to shit on them): "Don't you get filthy with me."
    • Mary (whenever Merrie Melodies pop up): "They're playing my song again."
    • "Shush the Sheesh" is one (usually said by Sam or Dave) after someone (usually Scotty or Sam) says "Sheesh!"
    • God: (after stopping the Devil and She-Devil) "Sore losers, yes. Prophets, no!"
    • Dave: (whenever Sam states Scotty's firing is justified) "Justified my ass!"
  • Christmas Episode: Episode 41. Episode 44 also counts to some extent as it was uploaded on Christmas Day.
  • Commercial Pop-Up: Some commercial logos pop up in place of the WB Shield in some episodes, pushing Sam to the brink of yelling.
  • Control Freak: Microsoft Sam.
  • Cool Shades: Dave always wears a pair of dark sunglasses.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Sam sometimes tries to have a few of the characters hanged "for mutiny", over a small mistake. And in Episode 33, Sam chased after Scotty with a gun after he put in one too many commercial plugs. In Episode 49, he had Mike thrown in jail for perjury all because Mike denied being an asswipe. And in Episode 51, Sam nearly bludgeoned Scotty to death with a hammer after Scotty messed up one too many times.
    • Episode 59 takes this to the extreme, when Sam not only takes Scotty hostage at gunpoint twice, but also summons the Devil and She-Devil to torment the others.
  • Driven to Suicide: Scotty always threatens to kill himself when he's fired.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness:
    • The first episode portrays Mike as the director. Episode 2 onward portrays Sam as such.
    • Also in earlier episodes, the shield is portrayed as having a personality. Later episodes simply have the shield operated by a shield guy. The shield would briefly go back to being sentient in Episode 35, though.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The show focuses on all the things that could go wrong during production of an intro to a Looney Tunes cartoon.
  • Eye Beams: As learned in Episode 28, Anna acquired this power after being abducted by aliens.
    • The Devil and She-Devil have these as well, especially in Episode 70.
  • The Faceless: Sam, Mike, Mary, Anna, Beulah, Abby, L&H Michael and L&H Michelle until Episode 19, Guy the Shield Guy until Episode 23, Jimmy and Hank until Episode 29, and Mr. Warner until Episode 64.
    • Averted with Scotty, Dave, and Sidney, who didn't appear until Episodes 30, 33, and 58 respectively.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: They only get the intro right every 28 episodes. This was lampshaded in Episode 84.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Sam describes being nailed to the WB shield as this in Episode 61. He even says this word for word.
  • For the Evulz: Seemingly why the minion of Hades try to take Dave and co. to Hell. The few times they asked why they wanted them, they've refused to give an explanation. Therefore, it's unknown if they have commit enough sins to go to Hell, or if they just want them because they're evil and believe they are above God's authority.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Plenty of the botched shields throughout the series.
  • The Gadfly: Scotty likes to mock Sam whenever he can, either through the use of Loophole Abuse or placing inappropriate words on the shield. And of course, whenever Sam yells at him, he always responds with "You bellowed, Saaaaaaaaaam?" or just shouting "SAAAAAAAAMMM!" He will not hesitate in scaring Sam with terrifying logos as well.
  • George Jetson Job Security: Sam fires and re-hires Scotty about every other episode for messing up the opening sequences. Though lately, he's lightened up somewhat on this.
  • Groin Attack: Another running gag for this series.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Sam, big time. Mike and Mary also count to some extent, as other than Sam, they have thrown the most tantrums. Although Dave has probably surpassed them already.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Sam. He threatens to hang people for mutiny, yet he has committed mutiny by throwing Dave, the creator of the series, out of the studio in Episode 39 and 50, and firing Dave and trying to take over the studio in Episode 58, renaming from "Davemadson Productions, Inc." to "Microsoft Sam Productions, Inc." In the case of the latter, it took Mr. Warner threatening to nail Sam to the shield again to get Sam to back down.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Sam and Mike, to an extent. Jimmy and Hank are a more straightforward example.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In some episodes, The Devil and She-Devil attempts to defecate on Sam and friends for the umpteenth time, but this time, The Reverend Blue Jeans had given them crosses, causing the shit to bounce back onto the Devil and She-Devil, causing them to puke.
    • In some episodes, Sam would sometimes throw Scotty out of the studio after firing him. In Episode 89, Scotty throws Sam out of the studio after being fired for the umpteenth time.
      • Genre Savvy: Possibly because he knew he'd be rehired.
  • I Did What I Had to Do:
    • Sam's response to Anna in Episode 50 after he fires Scotty and throws Beulah out of the studio.
      Anna: Sam, I'm surprised at you! First you throw Scotty out, then you threw Beulah out!
      Sam: Forgive me, Anna, but it had to be done.
    • In Episode 51, Anna zaps Sam with her Eye Beams after he nearly kills Scotty and then calls her a bitch. That's the last straw for her.
      Anna: [before zapping Sam] I hate to do this, Sam, but it's only for your own good.
      Sam: [after being zapped]'' Who? What? What happened?
      Anna: Sorry I had to do that, Sam, but you were starting to act like a control freak again.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Guy has a different skin tone than Scotty as well as a different voice.
  • Insult Backfire: Any insult that Dave throws at the Devil and the She-Devil is treated as flattery to them.
  • Jerkass: Sam, to the extreme, although nearly everyone else has had their moments too.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: Dave often says that a joke is bad by shouting "not funny", or "laaaame".
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Sam's tendency of firing people at the drop of a hat often leads to him being sued by the other staff members. For the record, he always loses (having to pay a hefty fine each time), sometimes lamenting that he should get a lawyer that will help him a case for once.
    • And in Episode 56, after Mr. Warner learns that Sam fired Scotty yet again, he finally takes action and nails Sam to the WB Shield as he has been threatening to do for many episodes.
      • Mr. Warner does it again in Episode 61, after Sam yells at Scotty again.
  • Letting the Air out of the Band: Usually, the Looney Tunes theme will slow to a halt whenever the wrong letters and logos show up.
  • Loophole Abuse: It's quite common for Scotty to take anything Sam says literally. The main example is when Sam yells at him to put the letters on the shield but instead, the sentence "Put the letters on the shield" are on the shield (obviously meaning the WB letters).
  • Manchild: The main cast are fully grown adults who throw tantrums from time to time. Especially with Sam, who acts like a whiny Control Freak and seems to throw a tantrum in pretty much every video.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Both L&H Michael and L&H Michelle. Up until Episode 31 or so, Sam hated them and once said that he was not put on the planet to tolerate "this gay boy and his lesbian sister". For the record, both of them are straight.
  • Nobody Poops: Averted with the Devil and She-Devil, who defecate on Sam and friends as an act of defiance to God. Sometimes they will succeed in defecating on them, leaving them to vomit in a trash can, sometimes God will interrupt them before they can do so, and on rare occassions, they've even somehow defecated on themselves.
  • Non Sequitur, *Thud*: Sam in Episode 3 and Episode 35 after being mowed down by the V of Doom and WB Shield, respectively.
    Sam: [in both examples] license...of...that...truck?
  • Not So Above It All: Even Dave has thrown a few tantrums from time to time. And in Episode 46, where at some points, he starts yelling just like Sam does.
    • And in Episode 60, Mr. Warner throws a tantrum himself upon learning that Sam's control freak tendencies may be incurable.
  • Official Couples: There are 4 in this series. Sam/Anna, Mike/Mary, Scotty/Beulah, and Dave/Abby.
    • Scotty and Beulah were married during Episode 72.
    • Beginning in Episode 101, Dave is now with a new character named Rhonda, and Abby is with Mr. Warner's son, Wally Warner.
    • After Anna's disappearance in Episode 112, Sam was in an Ambiguous Situation. For several episodes, he was seemingly with Abby, before a new character named Zira (one of the three TTS voices from Windows 8) was introduced, though whether or not she and Sam are together is unknown.
  • Only Sane Man: Dave is probably the most level headed member of the cast, although Mr. Warner could give him a run for his money.
  • Off-Model: There are times when the characters tend to look different when drawn from the side or back (i.e. When Sam is viewed from the front, he appears to have a square head, but when viewed from the side, the rest of his head is rounded).
  • One Head Taller: In some episodes, Anna is depicted as a head or so taller than Sam.
  • Mad Libs Dialogue: The tantrums:
    • "Take it easy, (CHARACTER). (DENIAL). Remain, calm. Uh-oh. Tantrum, coming, on, now. No no no no no no no no no damn damn damn damn crap crap crap crap crap (SECOND PERSON), (PROBLEM) you ([NUMBER OF TIMES] INSULT)!"
  • Overused Running Gag: Scotty and Sam yelling at each other, the opening phrase "cue the shield" misinterpreted as a 'Q' shield, and the "where's the B, in the hive" joke.
    • The "Merrie Melodies" captions showing up, causing Mary to always say "they're playing my song again".
  • Palette Swap: This is one of the ways you can tell Scotty (blue shirt and red pants) and Guy (red shirt and blue pants) apart.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: "Take that" is one.
  • Prima Donna Director: Sam, to the point of being a massive control freak. None more so than in episode 50, where he fires everyone in the studio.
  • Race Lift: Officer Flanigan started out as an African American but Episode 49 onwards portray him as Caucasian.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Mr. Warner, who is really the only character other than Dave, who can cut Sam down to size.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech:
    • Dave gives one to the Devil and She-Devil in Episode 40 after they once again barge into the studio.
      Devil: We have a bone to pick with Microsoft Sam and his friends.
      Sam: I don't have a dog, Mr. and Mrs. Mephistopheles, and you two hellhounds beat it.
      Dave: You heard him! You're always barging in here, claiming Microsoft Sam and his friends committed some unspeakable wrong, which you never bother to mention because you keep whining about it being a violation of the rules of your realm, and acting like your laws are above God's laws. That proves how evil you really are!
    • Subverted as it becomes an Insult Backfire. In fact, any time someone tries to insult the Devil and She-Devil, they view it as a form of flattery.
    • While not necessarily a proper example, Episode 50 qualifies because after Sam's injunction against the cast gets repealed, they call him out on his control freak tendencies.
      Sam: [to Anna] What brings you back here?
      Anna: We won the lawsuit against you.
      Dave: And we hope this teaches you not to be such a control freak, Sam.
      Mike: Lucky we came back when we did.
      Mary: We overheard you throwing a tantrum over the court decision.
      Beulah: You should know you can't fight city hall.
      Abby: But you can have a lot of fun trying.
      L&H Michael: And why did you throw us out of here when we did nothing wrong?
      L&H Michelle: It's bad enough that you acted like a control freak without trying to use the law for your own selfish gains.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: The Devil and She-Devil, except for the black.
  • Running Gags:
  • Running Gagged: In Episode 49, Chez Monyou has said to be out of business after betting on San Francisco and lost during the Superbowl 47.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: In Episode 62, Sam quits the studio after being fed up with the bloopers. He returns at the end of the episode, though.
  • Second Act Break Up: In Episode 50, when Sam goes insane due to his control freak tendencies and fires everyone in the studio, Anna pleads that he loves him. But Sam then goes as far as to say that he doesn't love her anymore.
    • Fortunately, they're back together by the end of the episode.
  • Shout-Out: The Angry P-Head character is an obvious reference to Willy Freebody's PBS parodies. In the video "The Angry P-Head Runs Amok!", said character's line, "Well, screw me where the sun won't shine! I had no black-and-white network ID!" was inspired by, "Well, motherfuck! I had no 3D glass animation!"
  • Soap Punishment: What Sam gets when he say "Fuck you!" to his bosses.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Starting in Episode 30, Radar Overseer Scotty replaced Guy the Shield Guy, although the voice actor remained the same, and the only thing that really changed was the color of his clothes.
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: With the exception of Dave, all of the characters. The voices are provided by Speakonia.
  • Take That!: In recent episodes, the sign at the entrance to Hell has some sort of message calling out the current US president.
  • Tantrum Throwing: Everyone in the cast has thrown at least 1 tantrum throughout the series. Sam seems to throw one in every video, and Mike and Mary aren't much better at keeping their cool.
  • Tempting Fate:
    • In Episode 35.
      Anna: I wonder where the shield will go next.
      Sam: Maybe straight at us? Oh noes, I shouldn't have said that.
      [shield zooms in and crashes into Sam]
    • And in Episode 3.
      Sam: What else could come up? The Viacom V of Doom? Oh noes! I shouldn't have said that!
      [the V of Doom comes charging in and steamrolls Sam]
  • Those Two Guys: Jimmy and Hank.
  • Toilet Humour: Every time the Devil and the She-Devil appear, they threaten to as they say it "shit all over" the main characters, a lot of times they do it anyway. And every time, they do so, they make the characters vomit and then they are both taken to God's Country to literally have their asses cleaned. Although, sometimes their shit boomerangs and hits them instead, making them vomit.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Sam in most of the 2013-2014 episodes.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Sam starts being nicer and acting more civil starting with Episode 141, and by Episode 218, he completely loses his control freak tendencies.
  • Updated Re-release: Beginning in 2018, Dave remade his older videos, which not only updated the character designs to make them more in-line with later episodes, but also made efforts to curb the Early-Installment Weirdness of the early episodes. note 
  • Vanity Plate: Scary TV closing logos over the years (such as the Klasky Csupo robot and the 1997 Bravo UK logo) arrive in some episodes to scare Sam and capture him under orders from the Devil. Anna always defeats them in the end by using her laser vision.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Sam and Mike could count as this. Sam's always calling Mike an "asswipe", and Mike's always calling Sam a "son of a bitch". Deep down though, they are good friends.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Any time the main cast are shown vomiting, they're seen putting their head inside a bucket. Expect to see them vomiting in nearly every episode due to how frequently the poop-reliving Devil and She-Devil appear.
  • Wedding Episode: In Episode 72, Scotty and Beulah get married.
  • Wedgie: This was basically the form of abuse the characters used against each other, before the crotch-kicking arrived.
  • What Does She See in Him?: With Sam's actions in recent episodes, it can make you wonder why Anna still loves him.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: God gives a brief one of these to Sam after he learns that he summoned the Devil and She-Devil.
    Dave: Truth is, Sam coaxed them into coming here.
    Sam: You stoolie, Dave!
    God: For shame, Microsoft Sam! I should just let the Devil and She-Devil torment you for your actions here.
    Devil: You see? Even the Almighty says Sam's actions are shameful.
  • When He Smiles: Whenever Sam has a smile on his face, it is surprisingly cute. Extra points if he does his signature laugh with it.
  • Writing Lines: In episode 183, Dave makes Sam write "I will not be mean to Scotty" over and over on the blackboard, after Maya Logan zapped him to calm him down. This follows in episode 194, with Sam writing "I will not plant people in the ground with tantrums" 100 times after Anna and Dave dug their way out of the ground, and in episode 202, "I will never fire Scotty without Dave's permission".
  • Your Head A-Splode: There are some occasions in which somebody's head explodes while they are having a tantrum. For example, in episode 38, Scotty's head explodes when Sam tells him to shush the sheesh. It happened in a much more graphic way to Sam in episode 45 when everyone kept stealing his laugh line, even spewing blood.
