    Cool, I've always wondered what Daffy Duck would look like "live". He was always my favorite of the bunch!

    Oh come on. Its not that i dont like movie adaptations of toons but is it neccesary? Bugs Bunny toons were funny yeeeeears ago. After Space Jam came out...part of the magic got lost.

    No. Just NO! Call me old/out-dated/whatever but the shorts featuring Bugs Bunny and Co. are timeless and still hilarious to this day. Trying to "update" or put a live action (3D?) spin on things pisses away what little charm WB had left with the Looney Tunes. Look at:
    -Scooby Doo
    -Alvin & the Chipmunks
    -that awful Smurf trailer
    -the WTF-ness of the recent "Yogi Bear in 3D" poster

    I'm in no way against updates or improvements (new Scooby cartoons, Tiny Toons/Animaniacs) as long it's a quality product. I enjoyed Space Jam (but mostly because I'm a huge hoops/Jordan fan) but stayed away from that suckfest 'Back in Action'.

    And before the 'raped my childhood' comments surface...

    So, first they got the "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" treatment, now they're getting the Scooby-do/Alvin&Chipmunks treatment.

    What bandwagon will they hop on next?

    As the great philospher Michael Scott once said........

    NO! NO! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!



    What are they thinking. Why are they making live action of cartoon charecters that we love but know it'll suck if they make.

    I mean first Scooby Doo, then Alvin & Chipmunks, now Smurfs and Yogi Bear. We will the madness stop. Most of these films suck, bombed or will bombed And Bugs Bunny is best of them all.


    We're DOOMED!!!!!!

    Sigh. Can't wait to see how bland the plot will be, how crappy the CGI, and how juvenile the jokes are.

    It's mostly because everything these day's is all about bringing cartoons to life. And with the new 3D movement going on, there's that too.
    Plus, writers seem to be stuck on nostalgic mode and can't think of anything new and groundbreaking.
    If holographic movies/television comes into reality, all these nostalgic icons will be made for this technology as well.

    That's been the problem with them. Like take Space Jam for instance. It was too innocent. Those old cartoons were brutal, lol.

    Well at least the nostalgia entitlement rage in this thread is about something that was actually good in the first place this time, even if it is somewhat ironic considering that Looney Tunes went to shit 20+ years before most of us were even born.

    Those old cartoons were litterally the product of a by-gone age. Where 1 person could take an iconic character. And produce his own vision of it. Watch Nostalgia critics Animainiacs episode. Everything these days is subject to approval by a committee at all stages.
