Fans of the Warner Bros. cartoons collectively known as "Looney Tunes," which introduced the world to the likes of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, should be thrilled by the news that all their favorite cartoon characters will be returning in a big way this year.
"Looney Tunes" began as a series of cartoon shorts that played in theaters before the main feature between 1930 and 1969, before becoming popular television favorites. Warner Bros. is returning to the tradition by releasing the first of three 3D shorts, "Coyote Falls" featuring Wile E. Coyote (see image above) and the Roadrunner, which will play in front of their 3D family sequel Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, when it opens theatrically on July 30.
The first short will act as a lead-up to a new 26-episode half-hour series called "The Looney Tunes Show," which will air on Cartoon Network this fall featuring Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck as roommates with the other classic Looney Tunes cartoon characters as their neighbors.
No word when we may be able to expect the other two theatrical shorts, although Warner Bros.' 3D Yogi Bear movie opening on December 17 is another possibility. Warner Bros. is also developing a feature film in 3D starring another Bugs Bunny nemesis Marvin the Martian, though no word on a release date for that yet.
