Charming cartoon for toddlers has familiar characters.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Kids will pick up positive social lessons about topics like friendship and responsibility.
Each episode aims to teach a lesson or two, such as responsibility, respecting others, and the consequences of being a tattletale.
Positive Role Models
The baby versions of the classic Looney Tune characters don't get up to nearly as much iffy mischief as their older counterparts -- they learn from their mistakes and work together to solve problems.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a wonderful show for little ones; role models and messages are positive, and there's nothing whatsoever that would raise an eyebrow. Toddlers will adore the cute diminutive versions of the classic Looney Tunes characters, and the storylines entertain while teaching good behavior.

What's the Story?
BABY LOONEY TUNES features several toddler versions of -- or variations on -- those lovable Looney Tunes characters, including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Tweety, and the Tasmanian Devil. The cute-as-a-button \"babies\" spend their days playing at Granny's house (the same Granny from the Sylvester & Tweety cartoons) in the country. Each day brings a valuable new lesson, and Granny, sweet and patient as ever, is there to gently steer the little ones in the right direction if needed.
Is It Any Good?
This is a fun, thoroughly entertaining show for ages 3 and up. As the characters go through the day playing games, sharing toys, eating, and napping, they're often faced with little problems they need to solve -- and also occasionally get into trouble, as toddlers will do.
Sometimes, the characters (who, it must be noted, are a bit more independent than most real-life toddlers) see the error of their ways all by themselves and go about rectifying the problem without any adult guidance. Other times, Granny has to explain why their behavior was wrong and then make suggestions for how they can atone for their mistake. Each episode ends in happiness and harmony, with problems solved to everyone's satisfaction and apologies graciously accepted -- setting a good example for young, impressionable viewers.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about the behavior of the character who learns a lesson in each episode and review why it was wrong for them to act the way they did.
For example: Why did Lola think that being a tattletale was a good thing? When is it actually OK to tell on others? During playtime, what did Taz do that was disrespectful to his playmates? How would you feel if someone did that to you?
