Loonatics Unleashed is an American action-comedy animated television series created by Christian and Yvon Tremblay. It was produced by Warner Bros. Animation for The WB's Kids' WB block and Cartoon Network. It ran from 2005 to 2007, spanning two seasons across 26 episodes.

In the year 2772, descendants of the Looney Tunes have banded together after being mutated by a supernatural meteor to form a superhero team to protect the cit-wide planet of Acmetropolis, the next evolution of Earth.

Compared to other TV series in the franchise, it was a major departure in that it was focused on action, as opposed to the franchise's irreverent style of humor. The character designs were also directly inspired by animated action series at the time, which was met with criticism by fans upon the unveiling of its initial designs, during which they were petitions to have them changed.[1]




The theme song was composed by Thomas Chase Jones, who also composed the rest of the series music. The first season's theme song was accompanied by opera-like singers Molly Pasutti and Agostino Castagnola, while the second season's revamp had a hip-hop rap performed by Bootsy Collins.

Sam Register, who later became the Warner Bros. executive vice president of creative affairs in 2008, cited this series' character designs as "a reminder of what not to do".[1]

It served as the last Looney Tunes television series to premiere in the 2000s, with the franchise having no new productions until The Looney Tunes Show, which began airing in Cartoon Network in 2011.

Ace would make a brief cameo in the New Looney Tunes episode "One Carroter in Search of an Artist", in which his design appears when Bugs Bunny tells the artist to fix up his appearance.

In the Animaniacs reboot episode "Suffragette City", the series' main characters make a small appearance during a rally, to which Dot refers them as "whatever these guys are".

In popular culture

  • In the Teen Titans Go! episode "Huggbees", when Raven questions on a reboot occuring at the Warner Bros. studio, a poster of the series is shown accompanied by a stock scream.
