Bugs and Daffy Return in "The Looney Tunes Show"

The Looney Tunes Show premieres Tuesday, May 3, at 8 p.m. (ET, PT) on Cartoon Network

Animation's most beloved characters are back in an all-new series, The Looney Tunes Show, premiering Tuesday, May 3, at 8 p.m. (ET, PT) on Cartoon Network. Bugs and Daffy haven't changed - but their living situation has. Bugs is as brazen, sarcastic and ahead-of-the-game as ever, and Daffy, despite his narcissistic, sociopathic and paranoid tendencies, is Bugs' best friend and seemingly permanent houseguest. No longer confined to seven-minute shorts, their larger-than-life personalities (and egos) offer an irreverent, comical take on our modern world and introduce a whole new realm of possibilities. Now Bugs and Daffy can wreak as much havoc at the grocery store or the DMV as they once did in the forest.

The premiere episode, "Best Friends," sets the scene for this unlikely pair's dynamic. Daffy decides the duo can make a quick buck by going on the game show "Besties," where best friends answer questions about one another. However, it becomes quite clear that self-absorbed Daffy knows absolutely nothing about Bugs. Daffy wants to make it up to him with a fabulous cruise, but cannot even do that right.

Throughout the series, familiar faces from the Looney Tunes universe join Bugs and Daffy. Rounding out the cast are the eternally optimistic Porky Pig, the quick and quick-witted Speedy Gonzales, the insane but lovable Lola, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, the Tasmanian Devil, Marvin the Martian, Pepe Le Pew, Tweety, Sylvester, Granny, the Witch, Gossamer, Tosh and Mac Gopher, and the newest character of the bunch, Daffy's no-nonsense girlfriend, Tina.

The series also features Merrie Melodies - animated music videos of original songs spotlighting everyone from Elmer Fudd to Pepe Le Pew, plus all-new adventures with the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote in stunning CG. All this together in one half-hour comedy, The Looney Tunes Show delivers fresh, sophisticated humor, heartwarming moments and something Looney for everyone.

The Looney Tunes Show will join fellow cartoon icons from the hit animated series Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated on Tuesday nights. Scooby and the gang are back solving mysteries in the spooky town of Crystal Cove - including the overarching mystery of Mister E. and their Mystery Incorporated predecessors - when season two of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated premieres on Tuesday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT).

The Looney Tunes Show and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated are produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer of both, and Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone (Duck Dodgers, Back at the Barnyard, Space Jam, Tom and Jerry Tales) are supervising producers.
