Warner Bros. Animation has announced that Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and the rest of the Looney Tunes crew are set to return in 2019 with Looney Tunes Cartoons, a new series of 1,000 minutes of brand new animated shorts, set for distribution across broadcast, digital and mobile platforms.
The new cartoons will echo “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.”
“The Looney Tunes are one of the most beloved group of animated characters in the world” said 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.”
Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) and Peter Browngardt (Uncle Grandpa) are serving as executive producers on the new series, which will feature the return of veteran Looney Tunes voice cast members including Eric Bauza, Jeff Bergman and Bob Bergen.
