The Looney Tunes Show

Animation’s most beloved char­ac­ters are back in an all-new series, The Looney Tunes Show, pre­mier­ing at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Tues­day, May 3 on Car­toon Network.

Bugs and Daffy haven’t changed — but their liv­ing sit­u­a­tion has. Bugs is as brazen, sar­cas­tic and ahead-of-the-game as ever, and Daffy, despite his nar­cis­sis­tic, socio­pathic and para­noid ten­den­cies, is Bugs’ best friend and seem­ingly per­ma­nent house­guest. No longer con­fined to seven-minute shorts, their larger-than-life per­son­al­i­ties (and egos) offer an irrev­er­ent, com­i­cal take on our mod­ern world and intro­duce a whole new realm of pos­si­bil­i­ties. Now Bugs and Daffy can wreak as much havoc at the gro­cery store or the DMV as they once did in the forest.

The pre­miere episode, “Best Friends,” sets the scene for this unlikely pair’s dynamic. Daffy decides the duo can make a quick buck by going on the game show Besties, where best friends answer ques­tions about one another.

The Looney Tunes Show will join fel­low car­toon icons from the hit ani­mated series Scooby-Doo! Mys­tery Incor­po­rated on Tues­day nights. Scooby and the gang are back solv­ing mys­ter­ies in the spooky town of Crys­tal Cove — includ­ing the over­ar­ch­ing mys­tery of Mis­ter E. and their Mys­tery Incor­po­rated pre­de­ces­sors — when sea­son two of Scooby-Doo! Mys­tery Incor­po­rated pre­mieres at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Tues­day, May 3.

The Looney Tunes Show and Scooby-Doo! Mys­tery Incor­po­rated are pro­duced by Warner Bros. Ani­ma­tion. Sam Reg­is­ter (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Bat­man: The Brave and the Bold) is the exec­u­tive pro­ducer of both, and Spike Brandt and Tony Cer­vone (Duck Dodgers, Back at the Barn­yard, Space Jam, Tom and Jerry Tales) are super­vis­ing producers.
