Tom Ruegger's show idea that almost made it
If you remember a few years ago, I mentioned that Tom had sent me sneak peeks of a pitch he was working on.
He has just posted some of the art from that concept for all to see (only two of which were among those he sent me), and the story of how it was green-lit and ready for production right up until one new executive joined WB and axed it. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?http://cartoonatics.blogspot.com/2011/04/cartoon-shows-that-never-were-2-mixed.html
My thought on this was that WB cartoon purists would not like the mixture of classic Looney Tunes with the Hanna-Barbera characters, knowing how picky those purists are.
Anyway, that new executive instead has produced the new Looney Tunes Show
in its place, which also is generally disliked by WB cartoon purists -- for its models and so far the clips being not particularly funny (and Daffy is now a moron -- what gives?).
Which do you suppose would have been the better show?
Hopefully he'll post the other art that was part of this packet he sent to me back then.
