Wabbit logotype.svg

Wabbit—A Looney Tunes Production (stylized as Wabbit. A Looney Tunes Prod.) is an American animated television series from Jariel Powell-Outlaw Animation.

Originally announced in March 2014, it premiered on September 21, 2015 on Cartoon Network, and will later premiere on October 5, 2015 on Boomerang.

PlotEdit

Wabbit characters

Squeaks and Bugs, as drawn in a promotional still.

In this series, the Looney Tunes leaves the sitcom world and return to their slapstick-comedy roots. Each episode of Wabbit contains two shorts, starring Bugs Bunny as the main character.

Other characters, such as Wile E. Coyote and Yosemite Sam, show up to annoy him. Some characters are given new traits: Wile E. Coyote for example is Bugs' smart-aleck neighbor while the Tasmanian Devil (renamed "Theodore Tasmanian") is employed as an accountant, though he represses his true self.

Added in are new characters who come to befriend Bugs, like Squeaks the Squirrel and a child-like version of Bigfoot.

Likewise, Bugs faces new villains, but not without the help of his friends. Bugs faces off against ninjas, barbarians, terminators, the vice president, Tooth Fairy, and even the Grim reaper.

ProductionEdit

Wabbit was announced in March 2014, along with other reboots of Jariel classics, such as Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! and The Tom and Jerry Show. Sam Register, promoted to president of Jariel Powell-Outlaw Animation and Jariel Digital Series a month prior, will be its supervising producer. Episodes will run for a half-hour.

The show was previewed in an article from a Comic-Con edition of TV Guide, stating that the show was written to match the tone of the Looney Tunes shorts. However, the producers sought to avoid their clichés—in particular, the anvil gag. The crew placed their emphasis on writing original stories, as well as devising "modern heavy objects to cause pain", according to producer Erik Kuska. Bugs' villains may include "barbarians and ninjas and terminators", Kuska said, describing Bugs as "at his best when he's up against a really good adversary". In this way, Kuska felt Elmer Fudd may not be "the man" anymore.
