Marvin

It looks pretty close.  About like Who Framed Roger Rabbit as far the artwork is concerned.  And the voices are close, too.  If it’s anything like another reboot of a classic animated property, Blue Sky’s The Peanuts Movie–which deftly re-created the looks and voices of Charlie Brown and his friends–this may be something worth checking out.  It’s the latest Warner Brothers property making its way to the new HBO Max streaming service coming in May.  Yep, Looney Tunes are back.  The artwork, the bright colors, the classical music, those familiar animal friends (and Marvin and Elmer).  Yes, the trailer for the new cartoons looks pretty darned close.

Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, Porky Pig, Sylvester and Tweety Bird, Marvin the Martian, Elmer Fudd,and Gossamer the big, hairy, orange monster.  Ah-say, ah-say, boy, where’s my favorite?  Where’s Foghorn Leghorn and That Dawg?  The network promises a whopping eighty 11-minute cartoons, so hopefully we’ll see them, too.  The network suggests the stories will be “adapted for today’s audience.”  A credit to the late Mel Blanc is his voice can never really be replicated.
