New LOONEY TUNES Shorts Coming in 2019 - And They'll Break House Style

New LOONEY TUNES Shorts Coming in 2019 - And They'll Break House Style

The Looney Tunes are coming back in arguably the best possible way. Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) and Peter Browngardt (Uncle Grandpa) serve as executive producers. The 1968 short titled "See Ya Later Gladiator", was the last Merrie Melodies cartoon to feature any classic Looney Tunes characters, which happened to be Daffy and Speedy Gonzalez.

Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series President Sam Register said: "The Looney Tunes are one of the most beloved group of animated characters in the world".

Warner Bros. Animation produces Looney Tunes Cartoons, which will feature veteran Looney Tunes voice cast members Jeff Bergman (New Looney Tunes, The Looney Tunes Show), Eric Bauza (New Looney Tunes), and Bob Bergen (Space Jam, New Looney Tunes). Yeah, the news is as shattering as a massive boulder falling onto the head of Wile E. Coyote.

The new Looney Tunes Cartoons (real clever title there, WB) promises over 16 hours of new shorts, ranging from one to six minutes apiece, from various artists and creative teams employing their own visual style and effectively writing their own gag-driven adventures with the likes of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and the rest of the roster zany characters. They will produce 1,000 minutes each season, with the content going on digital, mobile and broadcast platforms. They will be produced by Warner Bros.

Microsoft announces Halo Infinite, heading to Xbox One and Windows 10
After all, the Xbox has the advantages of brand recognition, several big franchises, marketing muscle, and Microsoft money. The ambition of Halo Infinite necessitated new technology, developer 343 Industries wrote in a blog post yesterday.

Looney Tunes made their feature-length debut in 1996's Space Jam but haven't starred in a big-screen movie since 2003's Looney Tunes: Back in Action, which proved a financial disappointment. Animation legends Tex Avery and Chuck Jones are known best for their work on Looney Tunes and voice acting legend Mel Blanc is responsible for originally bringing many of them to life and continued to voice them until his death in 1989.

While Warner Bros. Animation has not yet announced the cartoonists or what network the series will air on, it's exciting enough that the new Looney Tunes will be available at the swipe of a finger.
