I've been an absolute sucker for the Looney Tunes my entire life, so the idea of the Looney Tunes in a sitcom setting was worth a shot.

And it's...well...it's not terrible, which is the nicest thing I can say about it. Best part of the episode was Bugs Bunny telling the Superman origin story, complete with the Superman theme! But the rest of the show didn't look particularly good.

I guess the worst part is that the show's humor isn't particularly funny. It's really hard to screw up the Looney Tunes and it looks like someone's taking that as a challenge. Particularly disappointing considering what a balls-to-the-wall great show Duck Dodgers was just a few years ago. Just because it's a sitcom setting, it doesn't mean they have to turn Bugs and Daffy into a married couple.

As for the voice acting, they hardly sound anything like the Looney Tunes and I can't say I'm a fan of Jeff Bergman's Daffy Duck (though he provides a passable Bugs). I'm probably spoiled by the total awesome that Joe Alaskey provided the Daffy Duck character in Duck Dodgers. What really gets me, though, is that Alaskey's RIGHT THERE! He actually provides voices for the other characters (so sayeth Wikipedia), so why not let him do Daffy again? He's certainly a lot better than the guy they have now.

Thumbs leaning down on the new Looney Tunes Show. Anyone else want to chime in on this?

I can't imagine that you could even do decent Looney Tunes now. You'd have bitching about ethnic sterotypes, you'd have bitching about homophobia when Bugs dresses like a woman, you'd have bitching about violence when Elmer shoots Daffey's beak off.

Well, Speedy is there ... As for Elmer, they had him singing about "gwilled cheese" so I don't know if that bodes well for his character.

I dunno, I thought they actually hit the mark when it came to the "tone" of their humor matching the original Looney Tunes vibe ... not spot-on, but I could see the writers growing and evolving as/if the show goes on.

Few things that popped into my head after watching this episode: 1. Just like what has already been mentioned here, "Season One" was apparently all for nothing. 2. So did there used to be some sort of relationship with Miles and Rachel?
