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.
