Looney Tunes Go Thwee-Dee (3D) In New Theatrical Shorts

Wednesday, June 8 by
 

The classic Looney Tunes shorts are some of the best comedy ever created. However, Bugs Bunny and pals have spent the past several decades chasing decent vehicles and their track record is only slightly better than Wile E. Coyote’s. Currently, the Looney crew have a sitcom on Cartoon Network that shows some promise, but it still feels like we’re a long way from a comeback.

In an effort to ignite the brand like a stick of TNT, Warner Bros is releasing three new animated theatrical shorts in 3D. They’ll be directed by Matthew O’Callaghan and two of them – oddly – star voice acting legend Mel Blanc. For “Daffy’s Rhapsody” and “I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat” (the untitled third short stars Coyote and the Roadrunner), songs Blanc recorded in the 1950s will be utilized. Okay, that’s not too creepy. I was worried they had some old answering machine messages or something they were gonna animate to.

“Daffy’s Rhapsody” is officially in season November 18, 2011, in front of Happy Feet 2. Check out the preview image below and click to embiggen. (TheWrap)
