Critic Reviews for Looney Tunes Cartoons Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (6)

There's a decided commitment to delivering old-school Looney Tunes action and gags - that means lots of slapstick violence, wisecracks, a reversion to character designs from the early 1940s, and good old-fashioned cross-dressing.

There's more to what's happening here than mere mimicry -- there's an understanding of tone and, yes, character.

The new Looney Tunes Cartoons are "good for kids," as my 7-year-old consultant concluded, but they also honor the anarchic spirit of the original Looney Tunes.

May 27, 2020 | Full Review…

I'm not convinced we need more shorts just like the hundreds of brilliant, kinetic, mildly sadistic ones we already have.

May 27, 2020 | Full Review…

The new shorts still capture the witty essence of the original series.

Jul 10, 2020 | Full Review…

The older shorts were better. These new ones - each episode has two divided by an interstitial - are fine, and enjoyably retro, and the return of the old designs is a delight, but there's just something missing.

Jun 26, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Physical gags, violence remain in faithful classic reboot.

Jun 3, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Whether or not this new iteration will appeal to a new generation remains to be seen, but if you've been longing for some old school Looney Tunes, then this should scratch that itch.

May 29, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

We wish that the multi-level humor of the original series was here, rather than just a series of bug eye gags and heavy items falling on the characters.

May 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Thufferin' thuccotash, it isn't very good... The early Looney Tunes style of humor is now three-quarters of a century old, and it doesn't work anymore.

May 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Looney Tunes Cartoons goes back to the series' comedic roots with manic pacing and brilliantly executed slapstick sequences

May 27, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

A faithful return to classic Warner Bros. animation, Looney Tunes Cartoons may very well be HBO Max's crowning glory.

Audience Reviews for Looney Tunes Cartoons: Season 1

    HBO Max's Looney Tunes Cartoons is THE modern day LT show! It captures the spirit of its wackiness and zaniness from the Golden Age for the first time ever in years! It feels like the classic version but in a more modern take! The voice casting has a Very worthy choice, such as Eric Bauza who is probably the best modern day voice of Bugs Bunny (he sounds very close to Mel Blanc). The animation is surprisingly really good too. I like how every episode has every style that the original Cartoons once gave us. Mel Blanc, and the original crew would be so proud!

    Just pour rubbish! How dare they tarnish the name of Looney tunes and Mel Blanc's memory with this Heep of pure garbage! What's with all the homoerotic so called, 'humor' and extra flaming jokes in everything?! I get that they're trying to be appealing to a so called, 'modern' viewers but this isn't the way to do it! Mel blanc WOULD be spinning around in his grave if he saw this nonsense! This is by far the WORST incarnation of Looney tunes I have ever seen in more recent times! DON'T waste your time watching this crap! Seriously, peeling scabs would be more entertaining than this!
