    Looney Tunes Have Been On CN For Quite A While Now, Why Are They Showing The Same Shorts?

    Considering the WB cartoons were almost completely absent from CN for so long, they're probably just trying to show the most "marketable" cartoons they can to get people familiar with the characters again. They show a lot of Bugs and Tweety because Bugs and Tweety are popular. I haven't watched...

    Bad quality copies of cartoons on Boomerang

    Is it just me, or does Boomerang need to get with the times and spruce up their library a little bit? Same with Cartoon Network. Despite the incredible restoration and remastering of most of this stuff for DVD over the past ten years or so, it surprises me that nobody at CN/Boomerang has cared...

    Cartoon Network 2010 Rebrand Talkback.

    Well, the Primal Screen/Raymond Scott revamp was the best thing CN ever did, and when it went away, the channel started a downward spiral that hasn't stopped since, IMO. But before that, you have to understand that all they had to work with was older material that Turner owned, but didn't...

    Cartoon Network 2010 Rebrand Talkback.

    Interesting. The whole thing reminds me of when I first saw Cartoon Network back in the mid to late 90's. Whoever did this overhaul must've been familiar with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1axETzM-5U Here's another example, though from a foreign affiliate it's the same stuff they had...

    They still cut the final line of "Dripalong Daffy". :mad:

    Looney Tunes - Talkback (Special Event: Marathon on 1/1/10)

    The "Show Biz Bugs" and "Scaredy Cat" edits are painful. But what we all have to realize is that of all the channels to show Looney Tunes in history, CN has always been the most lenient about edits. Back in the 90's, ABC's Saturday Morning "Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show" often took a chainsaw to...

    Not exactly. Yes, it was used as a theme for Popeye, but it's actually a tune that predates him. It's called "Sailor's Hornpipe".

    They do on Boomerang...but I agree. They should at least mix them in with Tom and Jerry. The lack of Tex Avery on CN is just as depressing as the lack of Looney Tunes. Oh well...baby steps folks. Baaaby steps.

    No, none of the Cecil Turtle races, but "Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears" was the first cartoon to air today.

    Oh hell, here's "Show Biz Bugs". Brace yourselves, if it's the same copy they showed on the New Years' marathon, we're in for a heartbreaking dose of censorship. :mad:

    Ah yes, the sped-up "Duck Amuck". Forgot how frustrating it is to see it like this.
