Looney Tunes Cartoons: Bugs Bunny and Crew Get HBO Max Toon Up

WarnerMedia announced Tuesday morning that its new streaming service HBO Max will be heading its way onto our screens starting May 27, assuming they don't take a wrong turn at Albuquerque first. That's right, Bug Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang are back with all-new animated shorts in Looney Tunes Cartoons. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and featuring a talented group of voice cast members including Eric Bauza, Jeff Bergman, and Bob Bergen, the 80 eleven-minute episodes are a return to the classic look of the original run combined with themes and storylines that reflect a modern audience. Executive produced by Pete Browngardt (Uncle Grandpa) and Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!), HBO Max released an official trailer for Looney Tunes Cartoons that shines a light on just some of the familiar faces we'll be spending time with again.
