I Weep For Our Generation

This is a Wall Street Journal article on the plan to redesign and re-imagine Looney Tunes characters as futuristic crimefighting superheroes. Mike Barrier has a picture of the design for "Buzz Bunny," aka Bugs Beyond.

I had a longer post about this, but accidentally erased it. Probably just as well. That much concentrated rage eats up a lot of bandwidth. Suffice it to say: are you starting to appreciate Tiny Toons a little more now, after the disaster that was Baby Looney Tunes, and the disaster that this show will be? (Yeah, I'm supposed to say "I'll give it a chance" or "I can't judge till I see it." To heck with that. No good ever comes of an idea this bad.)

Just to show you how popular it was, here's some fan art of the show:
