Sell your Acme stock now as a write-off for this year’s taxes.
…and that, folks, is far from all, because we have a preview image from “Daffy’s Rhapsody.”
Just add skunk tail.
Apparently all that sweet, sweet Shrek money isn't enough to support Mike Meyers's hockey and kilt habit. The SNL alum will loan his voice to a live-action/CGI hybrid film starring the Looney Tunes skunk, Pepe Le Pew.
It's reported that both Le Pew and his reluctant inamorata Penelope Pussycat will both be brought to life digitally, while the world around them will be shot in live-action. Can't believe this is actually being made. I always thought the first film about cat rape would be made by Harmony Korine. (Vulture)
Warner Bros is determined to bring back that rascally rabbit Bugs Bunny, sans Brendan Fraser and Michael Jordan this time. David Berenbaum (The Spiderwick Chronicles) has been hired to write Bugs Bunny, a live action/CG feature film. The studio must want to jump on the new wave of reviving old cartoon characters through the use of computer magic. As of late, we've been subjected to Marmaduke, The Smurfs, and Yogi Bear, and now the "Looney Tunes" bin is being raided.
I've been a huge fan of Bugs Bunny for as long as I can remember. The "Looney Tunes" cartoons were way ahead of their time, and the talented Mel Blanc, who voiced Bugs along with Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig, managed to create a stable of characters whose catch phrases will live on forever. I especially enjoyed when he'd raise his voice an octive when Bugs dressed up like a girl bunny. There's a fine line between pre-op and post-op delivery, and he nailed it. (Deadline)
I remember why this was so popular!Twenty years after its cancellation, "ThunderCats" is poised to return to the small screen. A re-imaged "anime-inspired" version of the classic 80's cartoon will begin airing on Cartoon Network in 2011. The Cats join a growing list of retro characters headed to the CN lineup, including Batman, Scooby-Doo and The Looney Tunes. While CN is hopeful that the entire cast will return, the beloved character of Snarf may end up as the lone holdout. The annoying, overweight feline is currently in negotiations to join Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg on "The View," which would all but rule out his participation in the relaunch. (Variety) Watch two minutes of Snarf repeatedly saying "Snarf" after the Snarf.
"Coyote Falls"? I don't get it? After years in hiding, Bugs Bunny and the gang are headed back to the big screen. In a throwback to the golden age of Warner Brothers cartoons, the studio is releasing three 3D shorts that will run in theaters before feature-length films. In addition, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are getting their own 26 episode show on Cartoon Network.This is the first major announcement from the Looney Tunes since they were sexually assaulted by NBA great Michael Jordan on the set of Space Jam 14 years ago Brendan Fraser on the set of Looney Tunes: Back in Action 7 years ago. Since cartoon characters are not protected under the law, Brendan got off on a technicality. But the event was so traumatizing that Bugs and company quit showbiz and hadn't been heard from since. Luckily, time heals all wounds, even the really stretched out cartoon kind.The first of the shorts, "Coyote Falls", will appear before the film Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, which sounds stupid and opens on July 30. The TV series will premiere this fall, and will probably be canceled next spring. That's all, folks! (Coming Soon)
