Where Art Thou Bugs Bunny?

February 18, 2005 -- Posted at 8:05 p.m.

Jonesboro, AR -- Call it a sign of the times. Warner Brothers has re-created its classic Looney Toon characters.

Bugs Bunny and his friends Daffy Duck, Wile E Coyote, the Tasmanian Devil, Road Runner and Lola Bunny received extreme makeovers. The bosses at Warner Brothers are hoping these recreated characters will charm younger viewers. However, old school fans are in for a shock – some say, some things you just don't change.

"The new one looks evil to me," said one woman.

"Looney Tunes had a brand image and I think people just want consistency with what they had," said another old school fan.

Bugs has been re-named, Buzz Bunny, while Daffy Duck will have a built-in sonar. The new Loonatics series will feature cartoons with superpowers to help them fight crime and be dressed in tight-fitting space gear. The new Looney Tunes have a streamlined, angular and aggressive look.

Warner Brother claims the characters will display the same wit and humor as the originals. The new series is set to air later this year.
