VIDEO: Loonatics Unleashed “Loonatics on Ice”
In this installment of Saturday Morning Glory, Ryan Lohner examines The Loonatics, a misguided attempt to make the Loony Tunes edgy and exxxxtreme!!! by turning them into anime-inspired superheroes who shoot energy beams out of random orifices. And he revisits the accompanying firestorm of controversy that forced Warner Bros to backtrack and soften up the designs that made the futuristic Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, and all the rest look positively terrifying.
Here’s a look at the first episode of Loonatics Unleashed, “Loonatics on Ice”, where the Loonatics fight a band of extra-dimensional mutant techno Vikings bent on freezing over the entire planet. And no, it doesn’t make any more sense if you actually watch the episode.
