    For fans of the classic Warner Bros. cartoons Cartoon Network will premiere its new series with the classic characters. And it doesn't look too kiddy, so adults that enjoy the classic Looney Tunes should like this. Looks very cool!

    The question is will these be the original cartoons... UNEDITED.. or the crap they pass off after they edit them?

    Exactly! What I grew up watching and what they show now are not even close.

    Looks like neither, these are new. I watched a clip with Bugs, it wasn't Mel, but I admit, the voice wasn't all that off. Daffy, not so much.

    Jeff Bergman will be returning to do the voice of Bugs in this new series . Jeff was the first (1989-1993) of many to voice Bugs since Mel's passing. Some say that it was almost impossible to tell the difference between he and Mel.

    It's a brand new series, not a rebroadcast of the originals.

    The bigger question is, will this be real animation (hand drawn), or CG?

    Looks like traditional animation. Well, all animation nowadays is done on computer, but this is styled to look like the classic cartoons. I for one cannot wait. I have all the classic Looney Tunes Golden Collections on DVD, so it's great to see these characters come back to life.

    I don't tend to watch Cartoon Network all that much but did they really need to put an annoying & large countdown timer in the upper right hand side of the screen for 12+ hours??

    Wow, that really sucked worse than I ever imagined it could. Never even smiled.

    Well, it certainly wasn't the Looney Tunes I grew up with.

    The show just didn't seem to have the right flow/rhythm. I'll give it another shot, but I'm definitely lowering my expectations.

    If you were expecting a style of the classic cartoons then I can see how you could be disappointed. I wasn't.

    But I thought the point of the show was the return of the old way.....

    I've learned not to expect much from remakes, re-tools, etc. of classic shows, movies, cartoons, etc.
    The only thing this generation of Hollywood film makers knows how to do is destroy true classics.
