LeBron Ditches Space Jam
Everyone has had that argument over who is better, Lebron or Kobe. Then it gets that little bit deeper when they start comparing the two to Michael Jordan.
Can Lebron James one of the top names in the sports industry and now trying his hand in animation after releasing his own animated comedy entitled The Lebrons be up to scratch with the great MJ?

Looney Tunes Crew Interview
Looney Tunes is on Cartoon Network and premiered on May 3rd. The first episode caused a stir among fans and critics, see what they had to say. Following the release Warner Brothers had this to say:
“The “Looney Tunes Show” is a half-hour comedy series and yes I just referred to this as a comedy series (as opposed to just a cartoon!). After an extended break Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck make their return to TV and, as often is the set up for great comedy, star as best friends who could not be more different from one another. Their characteristics will be on full display as they interact with each other as well as other favorites in the Looney Tunes universe. This is a new set-up for the Looney Tunes but this is also the same characters you know and love. The “DNA” of the characters – look, behavior and comic sensibilities – remains intact, and the fresh characters designs coupled with a vivid, contemporary animation style enhance the wit and charm that made these characters so beloved in the first place.”
How does the new show compare to the original Looney Tunes shorts and how did it come about?
Tony and Spike said that they all worked hard on making it new and modern but without changing it too much. They were all very aware that everything had to work as a Looney Tunes show and told us that it went through a lot of changes until they hit on the best way to explore the characters. At one point the series was even a sketch comedy show.
Jessica said she was pulled into the project at the very beginning when Tony asked if she wanted a shot at redesigning the Looney Tunes. She of course jumped at the chance and said she always wanted to keep the look classic, but also update it a little.
How will the Road Runner and Merrie Melodies shorts will fit into the series?
When asked about the new shorts, Tony and Spike said that they will fit into show kind of like extras on a DVD. They remarked that it was a way to fit other characters (like the Road Runner, the Coyote and Marvin the Martian) into the show. They are pantomimes that will act as a contrast to the verbal sitcom format and each one of the Merrie Melodies will have a different look and feel, rather like music videos.

The Looney Tunes Show
Following the release of the first Looney Tunes Epiosde the critics reaction to the show seem to be the same; no one likes it.
Compared to the origional Looney Tunes programs the newest attempt to re-release the franchise on Cartoon Network has not got of to a great start. If the series continues in on this form then don’t expect a second season.

Animatus created by Hyungkoo Lee is the ability to see what cartoon character bones look like.“Intention to analyze anatomical structures and physical forms of animation characters, within the hypothesis to visualize their possible anatomical foundation.”The Bones are actually made with some real bones and some synthetic materials too.
Normal- Here you have the ordinary Bugs carrot eating Bunny just relaxing. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Put the X Ray Goggles on.
Errgh..What’s up Doc?
Actually nothing Bugs. You seem perfectly healthy and your bone structure seems in check. Even your teeth seem to be in good condition.
Many other characters can be seen such as Road Runner and Donald Ducks Nephews here

Everyone dreams of earning millions; sitting on a yacht floating away in the Caribbean sipping on peanut coladas. But the question is how do you get to that stage? Here’s some advice from the richest cartoon characters around.from the animated world for their top tips to become a millionaire.
1. Wile Coyote – Invest
Didn’t think Wile had any money? Well how do you think he buys all those Acme products, he certainly doesn’t leave his money in the bank getting next to nothing in interest. Investing your money can yield big returns especially if you invest in a big company like Acme, you’ll be well on your way to catching that dam bird- I mean making a million.
2. Bruce Wayne – Rob a Bank.
Bruce Wayne here or you may know me as the Cape Crusader, the Dark Knight with a handy utility belt. How do you think I pay for all of those gadgets? My corporation? Ha no way. Think about it, I stop on average of 3 bank robberies a week and you think I’m not going to sneak a couple bags of money out with me? If you want to make a million seize the opportunities that are there.
3. Lex Luthor – Set Yourself Goals
I want to do one thing! Destroy Superman. Crush the boy blue with fragile little green rock and I will stop at nothing to do it. Sure I have the money to do it but I guarantee you’ll be better of setting yourself goals that will push you to the limit. You’ll be well on your way to making that green stuff.
4. C. Montgomery Burns – Own a Franchise
I own a the Springfield Isotopes. They may not win every game but we have a strong following of imbeciles coming to each game, buying merchandise making me money. It’s easy to do, just buy a franchise and watch the money role in. Exceeellennt.
5. Scrooge McDuck – Every Penny Counts
Save your pennies. Save your pennies. Save your pennies. You do this for life and you will have no friends, but you will be loaded! Loaded enough to swim in a room full of money. Just don’t get stitched up with looking after your nephews. Money hungry lil-
6. Carter Pewterschmidt – Hang around Douche Bags
Skull and Bones Society. Ahh a fine place where the most powerful men in the world are groomed for the future. Every president, every CEO, every douchebag named Ryan Seacrest. If you want to be rich hang around the Rich Douchebags and slowly but surely you will earn enough income for me to at least take notice of you while I get my shoes shined.
