- This article is about the 2011 TV show. For the programming block in March 2001 to June 2004, see The Looney Tunes Show (2001 anthology series).
The Looney Tunes Show is an American animated television series (based on the original Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies characters and series from 1930–1969) which premiered on May 3, 2011 to August 31, 2014 Eastern on Cartoon Network. It is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner CGI shorts are produced by Crew972, and the overseas animation is done by Toon City Animation and Rough Draft Studios. It is rated TV-PG (sometimes TV-PG-V), making it the first Looney Tunes cartoon to have that rating. It's targeted towards older kids and teens.
The concept of the show revolves around Bugs and Daffy leaving the woods and moving to the suburbs in California with "colorful neighbors" including Lola Bunny, Porky Pig, Petunia Pig, Tina Russo, Sylvester, Tweety, Granny, Yosemite Sam, and more. In the show, each character has a roommate. For example, Bugs and Daffy are living in the same house. The show will also feature the CGI Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner shorts and the "Merrie Melodies", one to two-minute music videos showcasing classic characters singing original songs (for example: Yosemite Sam rapping about his anger problems, or as he puts it, "blowing his stack" in Blow My Stack; Marvin the Martian telling about what it's like to be a Martian in I'm a Martian; and Elmer Fudd singing about his love for grilled cheese in Grilled Cheese; Mac and Tosh singing about being polite in Be Polite, being best friends in You Like/I Like, and drifting apart in Drifting Apart). Each of the episodes will center on the characters in the neighborhood, the growth of their relationships, and the exploration of the newly established friendship between Bugs and Daffy.
