This updated series may rub Looney Tunes purists wrong because of the liberties it takes with the characters, whose move to the ‘burbs changes more than just their address. The classically contentious group now reflects the social demands of their more uptight surroundings, and much of the show's humor is drawn from their attempts to relate to each other and adapt to their new environment. In other words, laughs still abound and the characters are still a delight, but this isn't just a touched-up version of the original.

None of this will bother kids, though, since they most likely aren't loyal to a particular version of the characters. But parents might want to give the show at least a cursory glance before giving their kids the go-ahead, since it does have some sexual undertones (busty, scantily clad women and lovestruck characters on the prowl, for instance) that give it a grown-up appeal, and it's impossible to not see sombrero-wearing Speedy Gonzales as a stereotype. Overall, though, the show is light-hearted fun that both parents and kids can enjoy together.
