  • Has someone stolen the soundtrack and excitement in this show? This episode especially faces pacing and story driven problems.

    6.0
    I was excited to no end with the introduction of a new Looney Tunes Show. I even got over the wonky character designs, but I have not gotten over the fact that this show is just lacking something. I know for one thing, the plots can be great, but there is something amiss in the pacing and lack of a soundtrack. It just needs something. I am not sure who the show is trying to appeal too, because it has some childish parts, as well as some adult parts.

    This particular episode has an extremely slow plot and pace as Daffy keep re-hashing the same "not funny" bit of who stole his newspaper. Bugs rolls his eyes every time, and is apparently slow minded himself in not figuring out what Daffy is doing within seconds of the first failed attempt by Daffy to bust their neighbors.

    At the dinner table, with all the guests around, Daffy tries to get a neighbor to confess about stealing a newspaper, but oddly enough all the relationships made with these characters in previous episodes in thrown out the door, which is real weird because this show often times mentions Daffy's stint in prison, which was another episode as well. Lame attempts and creating humor happen all the time in this show, and the acting seems rather bland.

    The show is missing something, and it needs to be fixed, but I can't place my finger on it.moreless

      Bugs: Just wanting to remind you about tonight's dinner party.
      Sam: You mean the "let's all forget about the horrible things Daffy Duck has done party"? Yeah, I'll be there... Unless I get a better offer.

    • Granny: Is this the bathroom?
      Daffy: (offscreen) NO! GO HOME!

    • Singer: Oh there's a rumble in the backyard
      It's a shakin' twistin' cloud
      Seems someone's pet is getting way upset
      Something awful loud
      He just swallowed up his doghouse
      Knocked a barbecue into space
      Then he sucked up Bugs' swimming pool
      Spit out a tidal wave
      Tasmanian Meltdown comin'
      There's a meltdown comin'
      Well, you better start a-runnin'
      When the ground starts hummin'
      There's a meltdown comin'
      I don't know what sets him off
      Taz: I don't know.
      Singer: Is he upset about a girl?
      Taz: No!
      Singer: It's anyone's guess
      'Cause he's not the best
      Communicator in the world
      Taz: Don't judge me.
      Singer: We'd love to get him to settle down
      But he just scratched through the wall
      He got the police chasing after him
      'Cause he's headed for the mall
      Tasmanian Meltdown comin'
      Like a hurricane comin'
      (Taz melodically-shouting indistinctly)
