The Looney Tunes Show Clipz

Warner Bros Animation has released many clips online of the upcoming reboot of the Looney Tunes franchise and the results are..... different.

I'm glad they are bringing Bugs and the gang back for the new generation and trying new things, but these examples are no comparison to the classic theatrical shorts.

The "Merrie Melodies" examples are pretty terrible - I hope they can get away from the hip hop and turn back the clock to classical tunes at one point or another.

Personally, the CG Roadrunner & Wile E. Coyote shorts seem to be the highlight of the new series, but they have been my favorite characters since I first discovered the Looney Tunes.
The new show premieres on Cartoon Network this May and hopefully we get to see more DVD releases of the classic shorts along with new theatrical cartoons. Bring on the new Tunes!

Oswald's Theme

Apparently, it has been mentioned that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit's theme from the Epic Mickey video game soundtrack may be related to the story of how Oswald came into creation by a young Walt Disney then quickly lost.
You can see the theme animated here to make the connection between song and story...
