I tawt I taw a puddy tat! And a tweety bird! And a daffy duck! Warner Bros. announced this week that the studio is resurrecting many of its beloved Looney Tunes characters for three 3-D animated shorts playing in front of its upcoming feature films, two of which will use archived recordings of original Looney Tunes voice artist Mel Blanc. Here are the studio’s descriptions of each of the shorts, which are all helmed by Matthew O’Callaghan, and produced by the team behind Cartoon Network’s The Looney Tunes Show:
Daffy’s Rhapsody: In the first of the new shorts, a persistent Elmer Fudd chases Daffy Duck (Blanc) on stage during a musical performance. The short features Blanc performing the song “Daffy Duck’s Rhapsody.”
I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat: A classic game of cat and bird transpires in Granny’s apartment as Tweety Bird goes to great lengths to avoid the clutches of his arch-nemesis Sylvester the Cat. The short also features the hit song of the same name, which was performed by Blanc, and sold over three million copies worldwide.
Untitled Coyote & Road Runner: Wile E. Coyote’s epic quest to capture the Road Runner continues in this all-new short. Will the Coyote finally get his paws on his elusive prize?
The first short, Daffy’s Rhapsody, will play in front of Happy Feet 2, which hits theaters Nov. 18.
