How sure are you that this is real? This looks incredibly fake.


[EDIT] Nevermind, now that you added the Yahoo link. This is now looking incredibly stupid.

Feh. Character design looks like something from Powerpuff Girls...

All I'm asking for is a Space Jam 2.

Please? :D

I used to love watching the old Looney Toons. That is the worst thing they have ever done.

It is sad that they have to make the characters look evil. This is what leads to kids liking evil things and buying mature videogames.

"This is a kids show intended for kids today who are growing up in the Internet age, an age of technology, an age of hip, cool animation, and something that we hope will resonate with that age group," explained Sander Schwartz, president of Warner Bros. Animation, in a phone interview from Hollywood.

HA.

Anyway they look like crap and I hope the designers are shot.

What are you on dude? The appearance of "Buzz Bunny" would have little influence on kid's enjoyment of evil things, say satanic sacrifices...

:indif:

The design is crap, but I'll still end up watching it.

They don't look evil, dark maybe, but not evil. I say they have a batman kind of twist to them. And I doubt Batman can be blamed for kids being evil. ;)

Kids are naturally evil, even the sheltered ones. It's how they are, they're physically weak so they attack emotionally and mentally.

But yeah, I don't really like the design, but I'll watch the first few eps to see if it'll be any good. I doubt it but you never know.

Among the improvements that are really scoring with kids: Buzz (née Bugs) Bunny ejaculates a gooey stream of Pokemon characters every time one of his pals sneaks up on him, the Tazmanian Devil’s aberrant behavior can be temporarily cured by swallowing a handful of glowing “happy pills,” and a newly-muscled Porky Pig finally gives up his courtship of Petunia to chase Elmer Fudd around the spaceship.,

Buggs Buzz ejaculates a gooey stream of pokemon characters everytime someone sneaks up on him?It's like there's two cartoons being intertwined here, and they're held together by loads of semen. Evil, vile semen. Taz has to take happy pills? Porky Pig is flamboyantly gay with Elmer Fud?

WB has officially lost it.

TiE, when you speak 3rd person, you don't use the word I.


I think you're all blowing this out of proportion. It could actually have great story, I wasn't keen on Batman Beyond, but it turned out rather well.

Only because it had old batman hitting people with his cane.

Err... nothing. I am saying that kids will prefer that style over the classic style. I said nothing about satanic sacrifices so what are YOU on?

Mike Windu
02-17-2005, 07:46 PM
I never really enjoyed any of the Batman series... was terribly unamusing to me...


Batman Beyond wasn't too great... but it had some moments.


And sir, you did not say that kids would prefer that style over the classic style.

What you said was that kids would begin to like evil things as a result of watching the show.

Therefore I placed an example of an evil thing (satanic sacrifices) and stated that a kid watching that show would not begin to like evil things as a result of the character design/animation. Therefore he would not begin to like (satanic sacrifices)

Gee Gee.

Yeah, I still watch looney toones with my little bros. (still hilarious after seeing them 10,000 times each) but let's face it, those cartoons that we all grew up with haven't been on regular tv for ages, and can only be found on cartoon network and boomerang for the most part. Like the article said, those cartoons will still be where they have been for years.

Even so, I think it's kind of weird, but who knows, if they do it right, it will just help the characters that we have all watched for so long be around a bit longer.

I don't really see anything wrong with this idea. WB basically ave a very good set of characters in their hands but hey don't appeal to the kids anymore, mostly because they "look outdated". They've only just given the characters a visual overhaul and set them in a new environment. Besides, it's not like they're gonna replace the original show. I can think of many shows/movies that had a similar treatment, but strangely, nobody ever complained about them...

I never heared anyone call Marvell "****ING **** **** **** ****ING ASS **** STUPID **** ****" for making the new Spiderman series. the 70's drawings were outdated and didin't appeal to kids anymore so they made a new series in the 90's. Wait, they even did it again in the recent years with a new Spiderman show in 3D, where Spiderman doesn't look anything like the classic OR the 90's show.

What about the new X-Men series, the original show was awsome, but why isn't anyone saying anything about the new series ? I don't understand, it has the same characters and basic storyline elements but the drawings are different... kids should be outraged don't you think ? :o

I also never heared anyone call DC idiots for making the Batman Beyond series, I doesn't look anythin like the original thouge... I mean Bruce Wayne is not even Batman Anymore, and the characters have square heads... How incredibly stupid :rolleyes:

What about the Beast Wars and Beast Machines series. What could have been so wrong with the original 80's Transformers that would warrant a new series with completely different visuals... they must have been out of their minds ! :eek:

Better yet :D
OMGWTFBBQ !!!11one LucasFilms is teh f00lz !!1 L00k wat they hav d0ne with Teh clone Warz series !!1 Obi-one has teh square beard and Vaderz is not even in it !!

I'm talking about myself..... so wouldn't that be 2nd person?


I think the drawing of the characters are really cheap looking. Just a bunch of strait lines...... and they look freaky

No, you were speaking third person style, but failed to do so properly. In the future either speak 3rd person properly, or don't speak it at all.

As opposed to .... round lines? ;)

And TiE, we get it, you don't like the way it looks. You don't need to keep making posts about how you dislike it.

The makeover is all fine and all, but the quality sucks. I mean cartoons are getting apoiled day-by-day due to sucky looks. I mean, even my classmates draw better than that. In the next century, cartoons will probably be stick figures!
