‘Looney Tunes Cartoons’ Brings Back Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck for 1,000 Minutes of New Animation

Warner Bros’ short-form content program to launch on multiple platforms in 2019

The Looney Tunes are coming back — but that’s not all folks!

On Monday, Warner Bros. Animation announced its plans for “Looney Tunes Cartoons,” a series of new short-form cartoons starring iconic and beloved Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Porky Pig. Multiple artists will work together on the program to produce a “season” full of 1,000 minutes of all-new Looney Tunes animation. The animated shorts will be distributed across digital, mobile and broadcast platforms and arrive in 2019.

According to Warner Bros’ official description, “Looney Tunes Cartoons” echoes the high production value and process of the original Looney Tunes theatrical shorts with a cartoonist-driven approach to storytelling. Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and other marquee Looney Tunes characters will be featured in their classic pairings in simple, gag-driven and visually vibrant stories. Each cartoon will vary from one to six minutes in length and, from the premise on through to the jokes, will be “written” and drawn by the cartoonists allowing their own personality and style to come through in each cartoon.

“The Looney Tunes are one of the most beloved group of animated characters in the world” said Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. “‘Looney Tunes Cartoons’ places these characters into the hands of some of the best artists in the business and into an animated shorts format that will remind many of the time when they first fell in love with Bugs, Daffy, Porky and the rest of the gang.”

“Looney Tunes Cartoons” is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and features veteran Looney Tunes voice cast members like Eric Bauza, Jeff Bergman and Bob Bergen. Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!”) and Peter Browngardt (“Uncle Grandpa”) will executive produce.
