In 2015 a big surprise for Looney Tunes came when Wabbit premiered on Cartoon Network and Boomerang. What followed was critical acclaim and high ratings which it is truly deserving of. This has got to be Warner’s best Looney Tunes show yet!
As you probably guess, the show follows the further adventures of Bugs Bunny (voiced once again by Jeff Bergman) using his sense of humor and comedic ability to stymy his enemies and at tackling situations. Some things ring true as we remember (if you are an ‘older’ fan) like dealing with Yosemite Sam and Wile E. Coyote on an occasional basis. The things that you will notice that are different are the fact that Bugs has 2 new friends; Squeaks the Squirrel and Bigfoot. Who in an odd way reminds me of the red monster character Gossamer.
(Animator Chuck Jones introduced the monster character in the 1946 cartoon Hair-Raising Hare. In it, Bugs Bunny is lured to the lair of a mad scientist (who resembles Peter Lorre) as food for Gossamer.
Due to the fact that wabbit is now in the 21st century, you will notice some of today’s technology like a smartphone appearing here and there. Also new villains, such as Carl the Grim Rabbit, French fox spy Claudette Dupri and Vera the Vulture. Although I am partial to the characters from when I was a little kid, these new characters just add to the fun . wabbit also includes Bugs and the classic shorts we all know and love.
This is the first time Wabbit Hare-Raising Tales has come to DVD. It has over 4 hours of fun which includes 26 episodes on 2 discs. You an also keep up with this show on Cartoon Network.
I also know this will not be the last as this shows as being Season 1, Part 1. You can pre-order on Amazon. This title will release on April 26, 2016.
