On December 30th, 2011, Warner Bros. unleashes the second half of the first season of The Looney Tunes Show. This half-hour animated comedy series starring Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck is 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 character sing original songs in two-minute music videos called Merrie Melodies. The legendary Looney Tunes cartoons are getting a 21st Century relaunch and a CGI overhaul for a new generation. 4 new episodes have been added to the DVD for first time ever showing.
Own it on DVD on December 6th. For more information, visit the official site here.
