Warner Bro's has tried in recent years to reinvent these quirky folks with little success, from the Baby Looney Tunes to the Loonatics Unleashed. If it weren't for the 1996 movie Space Jam, I don't think my kids would be able to pick Tweety out of a bird sanctuary. Warner Bro's strayed from the formula that made the Looney Tunes a hit and they paid the price. The NY Times reported that the Looney Tunes sales have been on a downward climb for 8 years. The NYT then estimated that the it will cost about $750,000 per episode to revive these classic characters. The question is, "Will our kids embrace these kooky characters when there's so much other stuff out there for them to choose from?" With a huge budget and parents like me ready to join the cause - I certainly hope so.
