Life just got a little more animated! Screen icons Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are back, starring in an all-new modern comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation. Bugs is as brazen, sarcastic and ahead-of-the-game as ever, and Daffy, despite his narcissistic and paranoid tendencies, is Bugs' best friend and seemingly permanent houseguest.
THE LOONEY TUNES SHOW is an all-new, modern half-hour comedy series starring Bugs Bunny and his best friend, and seemingly permanent houseguest, Daffy Duck. Their larger than life personalities offer an irreverent, comical take on everyday situations, whether wreaking havoc at the grocery store, the DMV or in the suburban neighborhood they share with the rest of their Looney Tunes friends. The series also features Merrie Melodies animated music videos and CG shorts featuring Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote.
The Royal Oaks Glenn Oaks Oakwood Oaks Country Club (or RO GO OO CC as it’s known to insiders) is very exclusive and membership comes at a high price. Daffy, of course, finds the means to swindle his way in, bringing Bugs along to partake in all the perks. Bugs meets a new lady friend, Lola (voiced by Saturday Night Livestar Kristen Wiig), on the tennis court, and quickly becomes enmeshed in an inescapable one-sided relationship that proves to get Daffy in the biggest trouble of all.
A visit to the Grand Canyon with Porky Pig turns sour when Daffy litters and refuses to take responsibility for his actions and pay the fine. High drama in the courtroom ensues, and when both Bugs and Daffy are found in contempt of court they land in a maximum-security Alcatraz-style prison. Bugs quickly falls in love with his new digs, where other people cook for him and he can insult fellow inmates without fear of retribution. But Daffy’s too pretty for jail and following a day on the chain gang, he leads an escape attempt. Shackled together, Bugs and Daffy are on the lam, not knowing where they’ll end up or when - if ever - they’ll get home.
Bugs and Daffy’s next-door neighbor, Yosemite Sam, doesn’t want to have anything to do with anybody. He installs solar panels so that he can go completely off the grid and depend only on himself. His plans go awry when the storm clouds roll in, and without the sun to power his home, he must rely on friendly neighbors. Sam is the worst houseguest ever, destroying Bugs’ bathroom, leaving a mess wherever he goes, and somehow taking both Bugs AND Daffy’s beds. Rather then hurt anyone’s feelings, the roommates come up with creative schemes to try to get Sam to leave on his own, but he can’t exactly take a hint.
Gossamer is a sweet and lovable giant hairy orange monster, and unfortunately, his kind nature and odd looks make him the perfect target for schoolyard bullies. The Witch wants a positive male role model to help Gossamer fit in and make friends, and after Daffy asserts that the only way to help a weirdo another weirdo’s expertise, he gets forced into the job as Gossamer’s new guide. After a few failed experiments to boost Gossamer’s social stature, Daffy decides the school talent show is the perfect path to popularity.

Bugs first spots the gorgeous movie star Starlett Johansson poolside, but Daffy quickly decides she is the love of us life (even though he can’t remember her name). Convinced that the way to a woman’s heart is by performing ridiculous machismo stunts, Daffy attempts daring dives, feats of strength and even a mineral bath spa treatment to try to gain her attention. Meanwhile, Bugs enjoys a vacation full of carrot coladas, Mary Higgins Clark novels and the company of the lovely lady.
Bugs’ and Daffy’s quiet suburban life quickly turns to chaos when the Tasmanian Devil ends up on their doorstep.

However, Bugs must learn that a Tasmanian Devil belongs in Tasmania, but the bond of rabbit’s best friend is hard to break.

She regales the reluctant duck with tales of her time in Paris during World War II, and Daffy is riveted.

Lola provides him with a script of what every woman wants to hear, and as he reads it, Lola herself becomes smitten.

Bugs, Daffy and Porky had a tradition of spending their Sundays hanging out at Girardi’s, a pizza joint. One day they show up to find Mr. Girardi putting up the “closed” sign for good – he’s ready to retire and move back to Italy. Not wanting to lose their spot, Bugs buys Girardi’s – but it’s never been his dream to own a restaurant, and the experience quickly turns into a nightmare.

It all starts when Daffy insists on driving Bugs to the movies. He runs a stop sign in his parade float and gets pulled over, and since he has no license, the float gets towed.
