YMMV / Baby Looney Tunes

Go To

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: It's been pointed out on Tumblr that this incarnation of Marvin could very likely be autistic. He fidgets when uncomfortable, he has trouble communicating with the other characters, he's very intelligent for his age, and he's nonverbal for most of the episode; it's pretty easy for some to see him as autistic, especially actual autistic people. Certainly helped by the fact that a common way of explaining autism to small children is comparing it to being an outsider from another planet. Which Marvin literally is. This could be what the writers were going for, though it's not confirmed.

  • Anvilicious: Being an Edutainment Show, it's pretty much expected.
  • Awesome Music: The theme song. Especially the instrumental version in the credits.
  • Crazy Awesome: Taz is very well liked for being the Gentle Giant and a Bruiser with a Soft Center.
  • Ear Worm:
    • "Hey, there everybody, it's a looneyful day..." Got any cavities yet?
    • Any of the intermission songs as well.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Baby Pepe only appeared in two episodes, but is possibly the most well-known side baby due to his cuteness.
    • Baby Taz has received a lot of popularity due to getting more character focus and some of the funnier scenes in the series.
    • Baby Sylvester is another well-liked character for his hilarious plots and one-liners.
    • Baby Marvin is very popular with autistic fans, as in his starring episode he shows traits that resonate with them; this is further helped by him having an adorable design.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop:
    • If you watch the "Time Out" episode, you might get the impression that if one or two people in a group causes damage, the entire group can get in trouble for it. Moreover, it seems to teach that one can get punished even for something that they didn't even do on purpose, and that nobody can point out that it was an accident to begin with or that one wasn't even involved when it happened. However, that is Truth in Television, as many could probably attest to.
    • In another episode, Granny is cleaning out the attic and wants to donate one of Daffy's favorite toys "Mr. McStuffles." Daffy claims he still loves him due to all the great memories and doesn't want to give him up, so Granny outright forces him to do nothing else but sit and play with his doll to prove he wants to keep him. The moral of the story seems to be that you should instantly get rid of something you haven't touched in a while regardless of any sentimental value it has to you.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • We have all these cute innocent babies who are True Companions and love each other like a big family...And they will grow up into destructive sociopaths who try to kill each other on a regular basis.
    • Here Lola is Wise Beyond Their Years and generally more mature than the other babies. Her adult counterpart in The Looney Tunes Show is an insane airhead. So Lola was smarter as a baby than as an adult.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    Daffy: You little piece of shit! You're nothing but a motherfucker! I never want to play with this fucking thing ever again.
  • Most Annoying Sound: Whenever the babies all cry or just one in general can be annoying to some viewers
  • Moe: EVERYONE!!!!!
  • Older Than They Think: It is easy to forget that Petunia and Melissa were actually created for some of the original short films as well as the merchandise released prior to Baby Looney Tunes, because they are comparatively obscure.
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel: It pretty much operates on this trope, although mitigated in the second season to grow up with the demographic.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: A Lighter and Softer version of Looney Tunes as adorable little babies who learn life lessons.
  • The Scrappy: Melissa and Petunia aren't exactly the most popular characters.
  • Tearjerker:
    • Whenever Taz cries.
    • Whenever any baby cries
    • Whenever all the babies cry, it could be this or * Most Annoying Sound
    • The episode with Marvin the Martian. Nobody except Taz seems to like him, and at one point, everyone abandons him outside. When Taz goes up to him, Marvin gushes a Single Tear, and Taz tells him that he will be friends. Awwww.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Season 2 was received negatively because it came three years after the original series, had darker animation, spent less time in the nursery, replaced Granny with Floyd mainly, and felt rather less endearing.
  • Toy Ship:
    • Bugs and Lola of course.
    • To a certain degree, Daffy and Melissa.
  • "Weird Al" Effect: As mentioned under Memetic Mutation, the Fan Vid set to "Egyptian Beach Party" is popular enough that some people think that the song came from Baby Looney Tunes.
  • The Woobie:
    • Sylvester, due to how bashful he is.
    • Marvin from "War Of The Weirds". He was constantly shunned by the others and didn't even catch a break till the end!
