Loonatics: Unleashed

(i)

 

Unoriginal show gives Looney Tunes superpowers.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

A cheap take on a great legacy. Bugs Bunny would be rolling in his grave.

Violence & scariness

Lots of cartoon blasting, explosions, and fighting.

Sexy stuff

Lexi is the only female of the bunch, and she's sometimes portrayed in a provocative manner.

Language

Jokes and threats go hand in hand.

Consumerism

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this program begins and ends with explosions, with nothing very worthwhile in between. It's not age-inappropriate, but there are far better things for your kids to do with their time.

What's the story?

In LOONATICS: UNLEASHED, Ace Bunny, Tech E. Coyote, Danger Duck, and friends are transformed into superheroes when a meteor hits the planet 700 years in the future. Now they spend their time making jokes while blasting monsters and asteroids with \"neutron cannons\" and whatever other weapons they have at hand.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Parents and kids who are familiar with the original Looney Tunes cartoons might be drawn to the characters who made them smile in the old shorts. Unfortunately, the jokes are no longer very funny and the characters have become little more than filler material. Whereas Bugs Bunny used to use his ingenuity to outwit his adversaries, Ace Bunny relies on his fists.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the difference between cartoon violence found in older cartoons -- such as the original Looney Tunes from the 1940s -- and what we see here. How have things changed over the years? How have they remained the same?

OK, this had just ruined Looney Tunes.

It's like Looney Tunes, but added with more violence. There were superhero adaptions of Bugs Bunny, the Road Runner, Daffy Duck, and more. Poor Mel Blanc would have been furious at THIS!
What other families should know
Too much violence

I think it's good for kids who are in to cartoons with action. It's kind of reminds me of Young Justice or any other superhero cartoon, but I think it's cool how they could turn what I thought were harmless comedic talking animals into badass super heroes, and it's that aspect of the show that is what makes it, in my opinion, something that worked.
