'Looney Tunes', for anyone who watched Cartoon Network in the '90s, was how people were first introduced to the likes of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and Pepe Le Pew.
The cartoons, which were produced in the '40s, '50s and '60s, had a quick runtime - often just shy of six minutes - and featured broad jokes with a classic cast of characters. The humour and the animation often featured some references that might have dated it slightly, but by and large, they were as funny then as they are now.
For the first time in years, 'Looney Tunes' are returning with a new batch of cartoons, all made with the same emphasis on humour, sharp animation and utilising the same characters we all know and love. In fact, this YouTube clip released earlier today looks almost indistinguishable from a cartoon released in the '50s - except for the fact that the image is crystal-clear and in HD.
Like the original 'Looney Tunes', each episode is cartoonist-driven - meaning that it'll be written and animated by the same person, with the idea being that an individual voice and personality is allowed to come to the fore. Warner Bros. announced that a total of almost 1,000 minutes of cartoons will be produced, with the episodes being seeded out by social media and traditional television as well.
Here's hoping they bring back Foghorn Leghorn, because he really was the best of the 'Looney Tunes' cast.
