Space Jam Header

Twenty years ago, the world beheld the greatest onscreen duo of all time. Not Bogey & Bacall, Abbot & Costello, or even Batman & Robin. No, I’m talking about Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny. Sunday evening, I took my son to the Fathom Events screening of the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam. The film debuted twenty years ago this week when I was a spry 14 years old. My then 4-year old sister LOVED this movie and nearly wore out the VHS tape we had… yes, we owned the VHS.

Happy 75th Birthday, Bugs Bunny!

Bugs Bunny

Today is the 75th birthday of one of the great characters in the history of the animated genre, and in many ways, one of the greatest comedians of all time, the irrepressible Bugs Bunny, whose slick, extremely sharp and cunning personality, in which he employed a take-no-prisoners approach in the most side splitting ways to mow down his numerous adversaries in countless animated shorts, has endeared him to countless generations of fans to this very day.

Without question the top draw and flagship character of the myriad of many colorful ones to come from the legendary minds of Warner Brothers’ cartoon division (and realized by men like animation pioneers Tex Avery, Friz Freleng, Bob Clampett, Robert McKimson, and Chuck Jones), Bugs Bunny is a reflection of a Groucho Marx come to life. A vivid radical, break-all-the-rules, set new ones and smash those as well, and live every nanosecond as unorthodox as possible and on the fringes of the fringes of life, in which he did whatever it took to destroy his many adversaries (Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, etc). Bugs did it all for simply hitting the bullseye of achieving a level of self fun which stretched to the apex on a mission to simply eradicate boredom, and in which by doing so, he ultimately did the same for us as well.

Looney Tunes ACME Rocket

HBO’s ‘True Detective’ Meets ‘Looney Tunes’ Cartoons (Video)

True Detective As Looney Tunes

It’s always difficult to figure out how someone gets the idea that one thing will match up really well with something completely different. But it happens all the time, for whatever reason.

The folks over at Jimmy Kimmel Live are an example of this, having somehow come to the conclusion that HBO’s most recent hit original drama, True Detective, which just recently ended its first season run, could synch up effectively with clips from various Looney Tunes cartoons. Whodathunkit?

Click on over to the other side to check out the video. True Detective itself isn’t shown at all, but there is audio from the show if you’ve not yet seen it.

Looney Tunes Golden Collection Box

The Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol 1-6, a 6-volume 24-disc DVD compendium of some of the greatest animated cartoons to come from the Warner Brothers studio, is on sale today from Amazon for only $64.99, an incredible deal that’s more than half the list price of $145.00!

Without question, the animated shorts that came from Warner Brothers still stand today as one of the upper echelon bodies of work of the entire animation genre itself. Making the focus on comedy , they were in sharp contrast to the output coming from the Walt Disney studios at the time (the mid 20th century). Sporting a rather rebellious, anarchic feel to them, they delighted and continue to delight scores of generations of fans globally. They also manifested superstars and legendary characters such as Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester the Cat, Tweety Bird, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Elmer Fudd, and of course, one of the great characters in the history of cartoons itself, the irrepressible, take-no-prisoners, do whatever it takes to snare your opponent and outwit him, the one-of-a-kind, once in a lifetime, Bugs Bunny.

Don’t Act So Surprised: Live-Action Bugs Bunny Movie Coming

The Movie God   |  @   |

The list of classic cartoon characters that have been given a live-action/CGI makeover has grown so great it’s hard to even keep track anymore. One area that has remained relatively unscathed is Warner Brothers’ Looney Tunes properties, which last saw a movies in 1996’s Space Jam and 2003’s Looney Tunes: Back In Action — both of which mixed live-action and the classic hand-drawn cartoon animation we all know.

Now comes word of a brand new movie featuring the undisputed king of Looney Tunes characters, Bugs Bunny. Deadline reports that WB has hired David Berenbaum to work on the screenplay for the movie — currently being called simply Bugs Bunny — that will, as is customary these days, mix computer animated characters with live actors and settings. Berenbaum previously scripted the now holiday staple Elf, The Haunted Mansion, and The Spiderwick Chronicles.

Just When You Thought It Couldn’t Get Worse: George Lopez To Voice ‘Speedy Gonzales’

The Movie God   |  @   |

This is fairly old news, but things have been a little slow lately, so why not.

As we impatiently wait for all of the MGM financial drama to be settled so that they (or someone) and New Line Cinema can deliver us The Hobbit, other movies are being set in motion to pass the time.

It’s being reported that New Line has begun development on a brand new live-action/CGI hybrid adaptation of the popular Looney Tunes character Speedy Gonzales. The studio has hired writers Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen to pen the script. The duo started strong working on Toy Story but have since done titles like Cheaper by the Dozen, the Garfield movies, Evan Almighty, Daddy Day Camp, and the upcoming Walter the Farting Dog (I can’t WAIT to see the trailer for that bad boy).
