All Rise...

Judge David Johnson is looney...but not quite toony.

Editor's Note

Our reviews of The Looney Tunes Show: Season One, Volume 1 (published October 9th, 2011) and The Looney Tunes Show: Season One, Volume 2 (published December 18th, 2011) are also available.

The Charge

Surprisingly unlame.

The Case

I'll be honest…I was never much of a Looney Tunes fan, even as a kid. Their ilk of cartoon shenanigans just never appealed to me. So when this Cartoon Network reboot showed up on my doorstep, it found a comfortable spot at the bottom of my assignment queue; even less appealing than the abysmal Alien Opponent.

Sorry, Bugs. Don't shove a lit stick of dynamite down my pants.

This re-imagined Warner Bros. property is surprisingly fun and sporadically laugh-out-loud hilarious, sort-of-grown-up series featuring the studio's near-complete stable of classic animated characters: Bugs, Daffy, Sylvester and Tweety, Foghorn Leghorn, even Taz.

Instead of the usual plots—where one or more characters endeavor to inflict physical and emotional trauma on their adversaries—The Looney Tunes Show features storylines that are modern and complex. We get some meta-storytelling with "The Foghorn Leghorn Story"; a look at industrial espionage, when Daffy pilfers an orange peel machine design from Bugs in "Peel of Fortune"; and some romantic hijinks in "Double Date."

But the stuff that had me laughing with vigor involved Lola (a female bunny with a strangely inappropriate supermodel body). In previous incarnations, this character took joy in emasculating her male counterparts. Here, she's full-blown psychotic, easily the funniest part of the show. Don't believe me? Just watch her inspired stalker music video "We are in Love."

The Looney Tunes Show: Season One, Volume 3 is ninety minutes of good times, transferred in standard definition 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, Dolby 2.0 surround, with no extras.

The Verdict

Not Guilty. This is a funny show!

Give us your feedback!

Did we give The Looney Tunes Show: Season One, Volume 3 a fair trial? yes / no
