The first trailer for the upcoming second season of HBO Max’s Looney Tunes Cartoons has arrived, offering a glimpse of a giant robot used by Elmer Fudd to hunt Bugs Bunny. The animated series made a welcome return to television in 2020, at one point even outperforming Game of Thrones just four days after its release.
And although the return of Bugs Bunny and company surpassing the popularity of one of the most popular series’ of all time is a big deal, long-time fans of Warner Bros.’ Looney Tunes likely could have predicted as much. Since its earliest beginnings in 1930, the series was vital in building the so-called golden age of American animation. Utilizing an irresistible blend of quirky, loveable characters, slapstick comedy, and at times downright sadistic models of revenge, Looney Tunes was able to find that rare balance between adult and children’s entertainment. Effortlessly enjoyable and laugh out loud funny, the series has never had trouble attracting and keeping an audience. Many variations on the original concept and characters have been tried throughout the years with mixed results. Still, ultimately it was the return of the original Looney Tunes concept that’s fared the best.
With its first successful season now behind it, fans have been eager for more. Fortunately, it looks as though HBO Max is ready with a huge new supply of twisted and hilarious Looney Tunes Cartoons. The first official trailer has arrived, courtesy of the HBO Max Family. There’s some hilarious footage of Elmer Fudd using a gigantic robot to smush Bugs Bunny into the ground. Of course, this being Looney Tunes, Bugs should never be counted out and will definitely be back for more irresistible chaos. Check out the new trailer in its entirety below for Looney Tunes Cartoons – returning to HBO Max on January 21st, 2021:
If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that laughter can be a welcome relief when everything else seems to be difficult or downright frightening. A big part of Looney Tunes Cartoons’ first season’s success could arguably be attributed to the lockdowns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. As so many of us were stuck at home for months at a time, streaming content became essential, and laughter was consistently welcome. With its short but sweet segments and retro feel, Looney Tunes Cartoons makes for a quick, feel-good dose of everything that has kept the franchise so special for so long.
Hopefully, the second season of Looney Tunes Cartoons is as great as the first season was, though that shouldn’t be too much of a problem. As indicated by the trailer, there’s a whole lot more on the way from the series in 2021. It may already be a new year, but laughs are still very much in need so far, and watching Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang wreak havoc never seems to get old.
