Warner Bros Animation just delivered huge Looney Tunes news. Fans of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, Porky Pig and their pack of animated buddies will be featured in brand new short form cartoons, according to Warner Bros Animation. The new Looney Tunes Cartoons will be available over multiple platforms (digital, mobile, broadcast), with each new season of the short form cartoons set to consist of 1,000 minutes of Looney Tunes animation.
Warner Bros Animation is targeting a 2019 premiere of the new animated shorts.
“The Looney Tunes are one of the most beloved group of animated characters in the world,” stated Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. “Looney Tunes Cartoons places these characters into the hands of some of the best artists in the business and into an animated shorts format that will remind many of the time when they first fell in love with Bugs, Daffy, Porky and the rest of the gang.”
The Looney Tunes Cartoons will feature the voices of Eric Bauza, Jeff Bergman, and Bob Bergen – all Looney Tunes veterans. Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) and Peter Browngardt (Uncle Grandpa) are on board as executive producers. Multiple artists will contribute to the project, and each cartoon is expected to represent a visual style that will resonate with fans of the classic cartoon characters.
The Details: “Looney Tunes Cartoons echoes the high production value and process of the original Looney Tunes theatrical shorts with a cartoonist-driven approach to storytelling. Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and other marquee Looney Tunes characters will be featured in their classic pairings in simple, gag-driven and visually vibrant stories. Each cartoon will vary from one to six minutes in length and, from the premise on through to the jokes, will be ‘written’ and drawn by the cartoonists allowing their own personality and style to come through in each cartoon.”
