Show Summary

Set seven hundred years into the future, Loonatics introduces six descendants of some very famous figures from the past as they come together to form a brilliant ensemble of superheroes, each boasting special skills, unique abilities and gifted with a firm sense of justice. Alone they are formidable; together they are unstoppable. They're the Loonatics. Their beloved ancestors - Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, the Road Runner, Tasmanian Devil, Lola Bunny - hold a very special place in history. But that was then. This is now. In the year 2772, this super-charged, high-flying action team of a new generation shares the same DNA and sharp-edged wit as their Looney Tunes forefathers ... and that's where the similarities end. Loonatics are one of a kind - and today's heroes from tomorrow! No matter how high the odds are stacked against them, they'll whirl in to save the world without a moment's hesitation. Want to keep the world safe ... call in Loonatics! Loonatics is about the classic Looney Tunes we all love in the future. The year that the show is set in is 2772. It will revolve around action-packed adventures that will leaving you clingy to the couch. Bugs will once again be the leader of this Looney Tunes spin-off. "Loonatics is part of a wider effort by Warner Bros. to boost classic franchises: A new Batman movie and a remake of "Superman" also are in the works. The potential revenue is massive: If "Loonatics" is a hit on Saturday morning, for example, it is likely to ripple through the company's merchandising, home-video and movie divisions. "That's the ultimate goal of all kids programming," says Mr. Janollari. "If we score, it's a gold mine." Ace: Team leader with laser and martial arts expertise Lexi: Disguise expert with super hearing Duck: Weapons expert with built-in sonar Slam: Team muscle with jaws of steel Tech: Vehicles and surveillance; regeneration abilities Rev: Super speed Other Looney Tunes Spin-Off's: Baby Looney Tunes The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries Tiny Toon Adventures Taz-Mania The Bugs 'n' Daffy Show The Daffy Duck Show (1978) The Daffy Duck Show (1996) The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour The Road Runner Show The Bugs Bunny Show The Porky Pig Show Duck Dodgers There were many Looney Tunes shows done by The WB and ABC, but none were successful. Few lasted more than 65 episodes. Perhaps Loonatics will revive the classic Looney Tunes again and bring them into viewers homes. Many are appalled by the thought of another Looney Tunes "rip-off" such as the doomed Baby Looney Tunes. Fans of the classic Looney Tunes have expressed this in many ways. Here is an example of one: A New Bunny.

  • While it does have a moment or 2, the show lacks what it takes to make a successful superhero show

    3.5
    Knowing Saturday morning cartoons, it would`nt be too big of a surprise to see below average quality to viewers who desire much better plot, character and story lines. This show seemed to have a faint ember of hope at the start since the characters were based off more successful classic cartoon animals but by the end of the fifth episode, it`s clear the writers and animators definition of great is questionable.

    This show suffers under the foot of reused animation, aimless character development (if any) and unfunny comedy. When watching the show, I noticed that several scenes like the team leaving HQ and the attacks from supervillians seem to be shown more than a few times which makes the show feel like a cheap attempt to tell a cool story. While I`m not trying to be too materialistic (and I would like to point out reusing shots may work) the result cost this show some points on the scale. The repeat animation wouldn`t be a problem if the characters, both hero and villian, actually had a spine in development.

    To be direct, none of the characters feel like any effort was put into them. Due to major plot holes in every episode, it`s hard to see them evolve in any way and when the show pauses in a cliffhanger moment, you probably won`t care if they make it or not. Whenever each character has a moment on screen for themselves, it feels devoid of any remote emotion. Out of all the characters, I think Danger Duck seems to be the least transparent since he seems to act more realistically in scenarios and points out things that we find annoying about the characters or the characters jokes.

    Perhaps if more care was put in the plot, then this show would have been much greater but instead, this is one Saturday morning cartoon best forgotten.moreless
  • This is not the real Looney Tunes

    1.0
    This show has unlikable characters! This gives me nightmares!
  • I miss this show...

    8.0
    Okay, so it's sort of like future looney tunes, since the main characters are descendants of the original looney tunes cartoons. And even though they're super heroes and only their personalities and quotes are similar to their ancestors (except for never breaking the fourth wall and also how dark-themed this show is), this show is actually pretty entertaining to me (my opinion!) but is not recommended for little/ younger kids due to violence. It may be a cartoon, and have several funny scenes, but may not be great for little kids. But I love this show, wish it could come back one day...moreless

Then I got to wonder why did it got cut. so I've search and found out that show was cut do to poor reviews, hate reviews, and loony tune purist retareds.
