Animation starring Bug Bunny, Wile E.Coyote and Yosemite Sam will be on hand for a look at the new series coming back to our TV’s this October! Please be good, please be good, please be good….

New series premieres Monday, October 5 at 8/7c on Boomerang.
*Unsolicited commentary: Warning: Don’t read this if you are easily offended. Because here’s our take on the new Bugs: I WANT TO LOVE IT! But I’m afraid…very afraid….Because although The Con Guy is stoked to see brand-new Bugs shorts, we are prepared for a modern “sanitized, politically correct , soul-less” hallow immitation of the original Looney Tunes. Will Pepe Le Pew still be a hopelessly romantic stalker, or will he now be a neutered Oprah-follower with “trigger warnings”? Will Wile E. Coyote still have anvils dropped on his head? Or has the “violence” been replaced with an exasperating string of lessons on “playing nice” and “working out” your problems? And will we ever, ever see Speedy Gonzales again??? The original Looney Tunes were a celebration of diversity, but today’s “diversity advocates” seem to be working overtime to make sure the Bugs, Porky and Elmer we all love are scrubbed from our culture and replaced with one-dimensional cartoon cutouts.
I hope, hope, hope I’m wrong. Fingers are crossed. Because the world needs more Bugs!
