    Didn't the "take perfectly good cartoon characters and turn them into kids/babies" trend die off about a decade ago? Weren't Muppet Babies, The Flintstone Kids, The Tom & Jerry Kids, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, etc. etc. more than enough? I thought Tiny Toons did a fine job of creating young Looney Tunes without actually turning the original characters into kids. But now they've gone and done it anyway.

    1. Tweety looks exactly the same.
    2. Who the heck is that other duck? I guess you've got to do something to get some female characters in there - I always found it odd that there weren't more female LT's, since they first appeared when strong female leads were generally billed above the male leads in live-action films.
    3. Looking at the time-slot they're talking about (weekdays 9am), I can't say I'm really against this idea - I'm not saying the originals or Tiny Toons are inappropriate for the Pre-K crowd, but the new series described really seems tailored to them. This reminds me of "Muppet Babies" in a good way - it uses familiar characters, but not the "real" ones, so the characters we love aren't "dumbed down" for kids.
    4. I don't see Wile E. Coyote... I'm ticked! [​IMG]
    5. New Theatrical Shorts - Hot Damn! Sure, they'll wind up dragging me into movies I wouldn't otherwise see, since I can't be sure they'll be included in the Brattle's next annual Bugs Bunny Film Festival (for example, has anyone seen "Little Go Beep"? Anyone?)
    6. Anyone else remember the way "Taz-Mania" savaged this sort of idea in "Taz-Babies"? Art Vitello and company really zeroed in on how cynical an idea this sort of thing is.

    I rolled my eyes when I first saw this, but now that I think about it, it's OK. It allows them to bring back the Looney Tunes format without butchering the original characters.

    Tiny Toons and Muppet Babies were both good.

    I'll give it a chance.

    What is the point? Why not just make more 'Tiny Toons' episodes? That show was great! [​IMG]
