The Good News: Warner Bros. is pumping out three new Road Runner cartoons!

We still don’t know whether the new Looney Tunes Show for Cartoon Network will meet our lofty expectations, but I was invited to a screening this past week to preview the three new CGI Road Runner-Coyote shorts for theatrical release — and my verdict is in: They’re terrific!

The Uncertain News: Ummm, CGI? We learned our deadpan timing on Road Runner, and a big part of the charm of the classic Chuck Jones shorts is their distinctive drawing style. We’ll withhold kneejerk judgment, however, while you taste a clip of the new stuff at the link below.

I saw some of this a while back. they seem to have kept the snap.

Too real for me. I miss the line. And the Crazy Cat backgrounds. But I’ll watch the whole thing when it’s released. If I can see through my tears.

Do we get to experience what it’s like to be the coyote such as being shot out of a cannon and right into the path of an oncoming train?

They’ll never top Operation Rabbit – especially without Mel Blanc.

@SanFranLefty: Thanks for linking to Bloomberg’s speech. It’s wonderful. I really like the nuts-and-bolts history of intolerance and the overturning of it that is the armature of the speech.

BREAKING HARD: Prop. 8 decision to be issued tomorrow by Judge Vaughn Walker, N.D. Cal.

ADD: Court’s announcement

Expect the PACER database system to be overwhelmed at 9 am PDT.


As always, *do not* read the comments. You’ll be floating along on people delivering well-deserved congratulations to Bloomberg and then crash into the actual buckets of shit who are *still* conservatrolling on the subject.

@SanFranLefty: I pity anyone trying to do an electronic filing tomorrow.

@Mistress Cynica: LA Times says the court is going to release it between 1 pm and 3 pm PDT. If I were doing a filing tomorrow, I’d do it in the a.m.

I refuse to watch this clip. I refuse to watch this movie. That is all.

@SanFranLefty: Blasphemy. A real lawyer never files anything until 4:45 pm at the earliest.
