    WB Messes With Sacred Cartoon Characters

    WB to Update Characters for 'Loonatics'

    NEW YORK - Bugs Bunny and his pals are being updated for the future way in the future. The WB network will take the famed Looney Tunes characters as models for a new children's series, "Loonatics," that will air on Saturday mornings starting this fall. The characters' descendants Buzz Bunny and the like will be superhero action figures for the cartoon set in the year 2772.

    The network's animators have re-imagined Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Wile E. Coyote as sleek new figures for a modern age.

    "We all flipped for it," David Janollari, president of the Kids' WB, said this week. "We just said, `Wow, what a great way to take the classic Looney Tunes franchise that has been huge with audiences for decades and bring it into the new millennium.'"

    Janollari said both boys and girls enjoyed the new action figures in test runs of the show. Their parents may be a little surprised, however.

    "I think the legacy is intact," he said. "If anything, it's an homage to the legacy instead of a destruction of the legacy."

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    You just don't mess with the classics. I have probably every one of the older WB and Merry Melodies cartoons on tape. Even my kids love them. These cartoons transcend all generations, and don't need any "tinkering" IMO.

    It's like trying to create a new Three Stooges.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I thought I heard something about this the other day. Pretty lame if you ask me.

    I doubt they still have the two bearded guys that Bugs squaredances to the edge of and off a cliff.
