Leave Bugs Bunny Alone : (

Cheery here! :) I am writing to let you know about a travesty going on in the world of Children's Cartoons! They are changing Bugs Bunny! From a cute little friendly rabbit to some angular sort of lightning bold monster! It's hideous.

And I'm not the only one who thinks so! Adam Williams,
writing at Popmatters, thinks that this new Bugs is the final nail in his coffin.
Perhaps the introduction of Loonatics would be less troubling if Warner Bros. was honest with the public instead of trying to cloak its new program in a veil of forced enthusiasm and backslapping ingenuity. Let's be frank: This is not about taking beloved characters to the next level for the sake of creative evolution, but rather establishing a competitive toe-hold in the lucrative toy and video game arena. Cute and cuddly action figures do not garner significant market share as they once did, nor do they dominate the electronic shoot-'em-up circuit.
I think he's right! :-[

He does talk a bit about how they took the violence out of the Looney Tunes. Well, toned it down anyway. He thinks that was probably the beginning of the end. He might be right I guess, but then again too much violence isn't good either. So I don't know what to think about that. >:)

Anyway I do know what to think about Bugs Bunny; leave him alone!
