I loved that
I'm willing to bet it goes a bit further back than that.
lol, surely not. Did you mean to write 100?
The usage of the word "toon" was popularized by Roger Rabbit, but I figure most people referring to the Looney Tunes as "Looney Toons" picked it up from Tiny Toon Adventures, as that directly ties to the Warner characters and more or less takes place in the same universe. Also doesn't help that the Tiny Toons are very close in model to the Looney Tunes characters, and that the show uses rings for its logo in a similar manner to the Looney Tunes.
I mean, pointing out that Wabbit and TLTS are different isn't really the same thing as saying one is better than the other. I thought TLTS was pretty good as a sitcom in fursuits. Is the way I prefer to see these characters interact? Maybe not, but I don't think that makes TLTS bad. It just scratches a different itch than you would expect.I dunno, I always thought Wabbit was way better than The Looney Tunes Show. See, TLTS basically felt like a sitcom in fursuits. It was mostly the characters just kind of talking snarkily to each other, not much in the way of actual slapstick. I guess if you're into snappy dialogue there's something there, but... yeah, Wabbit actually had a sense of physical comedy.
WB listen to this man!!
are you freaking kidding me? all this time it actually did WELL and somehow it got canned???
This is like the antithesis to the new Mickey mouse cartoons. Where as the Mickey ones are trying to be very modern and irreverent, these look to be aiming about as traditional as possible.
Warner Bros. Animation is announcing its most ambitious Looney Tunes content initiative to date with Looney Tunes Cartoons, a series of new short form cartoons starring the iconic and beloved Looney Tunes characters. With multiple artists employing a visual style that will resonate with fans, each “season” will produce 1,000 minutes of all-new Looney Tunes animation that will be distributed across multiple platforms – including digital, mobile and broadcast.
That is just insane.Nope

Looney Tunes is probably the most misspelled franchise name. It probably should be stated that the title Looney Tunes is a parody of Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies (which the series itself was technically Silly Symphony, but in plural was called Silly Symphonies).The usage of the word "toon" was popularized by Roger Rabbit, but I figure most people referring to the Looney Tunes as "Looney Toons" picked it up from Tiny Toon Adventures, as that directly ties to the Warner characters and more or less takes place in the same universe.

not even really sure when referring to the characters as "Looney Tunes" even started, as Looney Tunes was merely one series in the WB animated catalog(the other being of course Merrie Melodies). Some characters, like Bugs, Porky, and Elmer originally debuted in the Merrie Melodies series. I think referring to the overall franchise as "Looney Tunes" started in the 80s somewhere, certainly in the late 80s we had things like "Looney Tunes on Nickelodeon".
Sometimes, but there are plenty of episodes where Bugs and Daffy would further torment folks after getting even the first time.
Screwball Daffy is my spirit animal, so I’m really looking forward to Wet Cement. Interesting that design of Bugs is a mixture of early-40’s Freeling and Clampett.
