If it's crap ... We'll tell you
After the success of their Wile E. Coyote / Roadrunner theatricl short films (and the poor reception the new sitcom-esque cartoon is getting), Warner Bros. is aiming to refresh the Looney Tunes franchise with new feature films featuring classic characters such as Bugs Bunny, Pepé Le Pew, Speedy Gonzalez, Marvin the Martian and the ACME warehouse.
However, before those feature films are completed, WB plans to release new animated theatrical shorts, two of which will actually feature recordings from legend Mel Blanc (who sadly passed away in 1989). Famous for voicing nearly every classic Looney Tunes character ever, Blanc's iconic voice has been pulled from old unused recordings and given new life through digital remastering.
The first of the short films, 'Daffy's Rhapsody', features Elmer Fudd chasing Daffy Duck on stage during a musical performance. Recordings of Blanc (including his rendition of the title song "Daffy Duck's Rhapsody") will be used for the voice of Daffy. The short film is scheduled to debut this November 18th in front of 'Happy Feet 2'. The second short, 'I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat' brings back the classic cat and mouse duo of Tweety Bird and Sylvester the Cat as their constant battle destroys Granny's apartment. The short will also feature a remastered version of the classic 1952 song by Blanc, which sold over three million copies worldwide. A third, untitled Wile E. Coyote / Roadrunner short is also planned but there is no news as to it's contents or what film it will premiere in front of. All three shorts will be created with CG and rendered in stereoscopic 3D.
