Say it ain't so!



Bugs Bunny gets an extreme makeover
Warner Bros.’ intensive market research has revealed that today’s ADD-addled kids no longer connect with Bugs, Daffy, and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang, so they’re giving them new names, some superpowers, and a 23rd-century makeover.

(from Defamer.com)

More details:

Warner Bros. has created angular, slightly menacing-looking versions of the classic Looney Tunes characters for its new series, dubbed "Loonatics" and set in the year 2772. Names for the new characters haven't been finalized, but they are likely to be derived from the originals: Buzz Bunny, for example. Each new character retains personality quirks of the original. The new Bugs, for example, will be the natural leader of the Loonatics' spaceship; the new Daffy will remain confident that he is the one who should be in charge.

I feel they've lost their character. It's hard to identify them the way we used back in our days. The colors, there's something dark about the new looks.
