The Lunatics at the WB

It looks like these television morons weren't content to just kill the cookie monster. It looks like the WB wanted to get into the act too and butcher a childhood icon itself.

Bugs Bunny gets an extreme makeover

Kids’ WB network updating Looney Tunes characters

The network’s animators have re-imagined Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Wile E. Coyote as sleek new figures for a modern age.

“We all flipped for it,” David Janollari, president of the Kids’ WB, said this week. “We just said, ‘Wow, what a great way to take the classic Looney Tunes franchise that has been huge with audiences for decades and bring it into the new millennium.”’

Janollari said both boys and girls enjoyed the new action figures in test runs of the show. Their parents may be a little surprised, however.

“I think the legacy is intact,” he said. “If anything, it’s an homage to the legacy instead of a destruction of the legacy.”

Ya, we all know kids are desensitized to that old school falling off a cliff into a white puff of smoke violence. It's time to upgrade. Maybe we can see elmer fudd get shived or reenact a prison rape scene between wile e and the road runner.

Looks like I wasn't the only one who thought this was a pretty piss poor idea. Someone came up with a video of what 'ExTReMe lOOnaTICs' might just look like.

The best part is when the 'dutch boy' makes a cameo appearance.
