The legendary Looney Tunes cartoons are getting a 21st century re-launch and a CGI overhaul for a new generation. The Looney Tunes Show on Cartoon Network is a new half-hour animated comedy series starring Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. No longer confined to 7-minute shorts, Bugs and Daffy are out of the woods and living in the suburbs among such colorful neighbors as Yosemite Sam, Granny, Tweety and Sylvester.
In addition to each episode's main story, The Looney Tunes Show also features "cartoons within a cartoon." The Tasmanian Devil, Speedy Gonzales, Marvin the Martian and other classic characters sing original songs in two-minute music videos called Merrie Melodies. Voices: Jeff Bergman, Bob Bergen, Fred Armisen, Kristen Wiig, Maurice Lamarche, June Foray, Jim Cummings, Rachel Dratch, Billy West, Roz Ryan, John Kassir, Eric Bauza, Jess Harnell, Rob Paulsen, and Rene Auberjonois.
