With Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang set to come stumbling-and-bumbling their way back onto our screens with all-new anarchy starting May 27, WarnerMedia's HBO Max wants to makes doubly sure you have your eyeballs glued to the all-new animated shorts. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, and executive produced by Pete Browngardt (Uncle Grandpa) and Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!), the 80, eleven-minute episodes combine the classic look of the original series with themes and storylines that reflect more modern times.
To get everyone ready for both the series and streaming service's debut, HBO Max's Looney Tunes Cartoons hosted a live viewing Saturday morning on their Facebook page that gave animation fans three cartoon adventures starring Bugs (Eric Bauza), Daffy (Bauza), Sylvester (Jeff Bergman), Tweety (Bauza), and Elmer Fudd (Bergman) to enjoy. So if you're in the mood for a little feline ghost-busting, Fudd's new idea to deal with Bugs, or Daffy falling victim once again to chance and circumstance, check out the clip below:
In the previously-released short "Pest Coaster", Bugs finds his junk food-fueled day at an amusement park blocked by nemesis Yosemite Sam (Fred Tatasciore). Bugs wants on the Murderizer in all the worst ways possible, but Sam will do anything to keep that from happening. Thankfully, they both have long histories of level reasoning and rational debate so there wouldn't be anything to worry about, right? Following that, "Wet Cement" sees Porky Pig (Bob Bergen) and Daffy Duck (Bauza) in a battle of wills over wet cement on a sidewalk. Porky's looking to do his job by leveling off the cement for a sidewalk fix. Except that's just too much temptation for Daffy to resist, meaning he might end up one seriously stuck duck. Finally, in "Tunnel Vision", Wile E. Coyote continues his efforts to get his hands on the Roadrunner (Paul Julian). Unfortunately, his unexpected artistic devotion to "realism" could prove his downfall.
HBO Max Originals has a number of other series set to premiere this year, including The Flight Attendant, starring and executive produced by Kaley Cuoco, from Berlanti Productions and based on the novel by New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian; the Friends unscripted cast reunion special; second season episodes of DC Universe series Doom Patrol; the return of mystery comedy Search Party for a new season; the three-part documentary series Expecting Amy, an unfiltered and intimate look into comedian Amy Schumer's life on tour as she puts together a stand-up special during her pregnancy. It doesn't stop there, not when you have sci-fi series Raised by Wolves from director and executive producer Ridley Scott (Gladiator); the adult animated comedy Close Enough, from J.G. Quintel (Cartoon Network's Regular Show); and Adventure Time: Distant Lands- BMO, the first of four breakout specials originating from Cartoon Network's award-winning Adventure Time franchise.
