Hey folks, Harry here with a report from Junior Mintz regarding those lunatics at Warner Brothers and their show LOONATICS. Let's see what the lovely doll has found out...
It's been a while since we last spoke, but while I've delighted in the splendor that was THE INCREDIBLES, watched SHARK TALE in mortal agony and opened my heart to the story of THE POLAR EXPRESS. Like you I also hated BLADE TRINITY & ELEKTRA while having high hopes for both BATMAN BEGINS & FANTASTIC FOUR, but trepidations about both. When you posted up those designs for LOONATICS - I thought I was going to have to start taking testosterone and steroids, then ace bandage my bosom to go beat the living tarnation out of every Warner Exec till I had knocked the right heads into basic common sense. Alas, I have only you to turn to. Well, you and the rest of the internet. There's been quite an out-pouring of basic hatred for these designs and ideas for the Looney Tunes. Here Harry, you and all other Looney Tunes fans need to see this:
Now, once you've stopped laughing my dear, take a look at this press release I found:
Buzz Bunny turns out sex toy and Dutch Design
LOS ANGELES/HILVERSUM - Just when Warner Brothers is getting ready to relaunch their classic cartoon series 'Looney Tunes' into the 21st century, trouble is billowing at the horizon. The extreme makeover of Bugs and his gang might just turn out a lot uglier than WB hopes for.
The WB network will take the famed Looney Tunes characters as models for a new children's series called 'Loonatics', that will air on Saturday mornings starting this fall. The characters' descendants Buzz Bunny and the like will be superhero action figures for the cartoon set in the year 2772.
But Warner Brothers seem to have skipped a peg or two, while doing the necessary research. It so happens that a character with the name Buzz Bunny already exists. Dutch character designer Metin Seven came up with his version of Buzz almost one year ago. Seven's agent, renowned animation agency Comic House, is not amused; 'Warner should have consulted with us before breaking this news. Being the company they are, they must have known about our character', says Comic House CEO Hans Buying, who is preparing legal steps against Warner Brothers.
The designer behind Figure Farm is award-winning designer, illustrator and animator Metin Seven. Seven's Buzz Bunny character was introduced as one of the first products of 'Figure Farm', an online shop for character merchandise.
The issue gets even more painful for Warner, now that there also appears to be a 'Buzz Bunny' sex toy, which will obviously cause children around the world to encounter this vibrator on the internet, as soon as they start a search for Buzz Bunny.

Now, being a gal - learning that there were toys for me of Buzz Bunny, I just had to search the net for them, and after googling I found this and I have to thank Warner Brothers, because this is finally a toy I can grow to love. Take care Harry and heal up,
