    Its like the baby muppets went into a cloning machine and Baby Looney Tunes came out.

    Taz and animal are crazy.
  2. And thank lord it's better then "Scooby-Doo Meets The Boo Brothers" (Warner Bros. still calls it a 'brand-new movie').

    Sigh...nobody likes Scrappy but me.

    But then, I tend to like the annoying kid characters in things. Some of my favorites are Scrappy, Tails, Genis, Ewoks, Jar Jar...(ducks flying objects).

    When I was little I'd wake up my parents by jumping on their bed and yelling, "Dah dah dah dahdah! Puppy Power!"

    I don't think bobhopesite is talking about tiny toons (although I could be wrong) I think it's about the actual cartoon with baby looney toons (the name of it, I can't recall) I've seen it, it's not all that good

    I've seen it. It's pretty bad.

    I think you guys are all forgetting that all of these shows were geared for little kids. And most little kids shows have to be really simple-minded for little kids to comprehend them. Now, yes, being a teenager, the only one I would really watch is probably Muppet Babies, because it's not as simple minded, and because I still find it funny. I'll also have you know I used to watch every single one of those shows!

    While we're on the subject, Jeremy Scott (the head writer for Muppetbabies) worked on 2 proposed pilots (or at least one, I have to double check) for a Baby-fication of the Three Stooges...obvious pun title "Wee Stooges"

    At this point in time, you should know that Jeremy was the grandson of Moe of the stooges. This also explains the reason they used so many clips of Stooge shorts in episodes.

    You know, I thought Baby Looney Tunes died, but apparently thy air 2 eps a day on Cartoon Network.... yet another reason not to get cable.

    Jeremy Scott? Don't you mean Jeffrey Scott?

    I know that a Jeffrey Scott wrote scripts for the Muppet Babies cartoon. Other good ones he worked on were TaleSpin. And of course, he's had his share of stinkers, too, like the Pac-Man cartoon and Mega Man and Super Friends. I think he has his own Web page somewhere.

    Hey I loved the Pac-Man cartoon, but it certainly wasn't well written!

    TaleSpin, now there was another good show.

    Yeah, Disney TV cartoons around that time were actually pretty decent. DuckTales, Gummi Bears, Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin, DarkWing Duck. They were all pretty fun.

    Yah know, I have his "How to write for cartoons" book and I STILL screwed up his name....

    He also worked on the last season of the original TMNT, he had an excellent handle on the Turtle's characters, but the episodes were'nt too strong. mainly he came into the series when Lord Dregg replaced Shredder...

    Wait a minute, are you talking about the TMNT episodes where the turtles could turn into super mutant monsters all ugly with spiky shells? And they'd only turn that way during pivital plot points? Oh brother! :)

    The most recent thing I read that Jeffrey Scott did was DragonTales.

    Undoubtedly almost as bad as the live action female fifth Turtle! I feel kinda sorry for the guy.... he didn't really start these rediculous concepts... he worked on season ten, and the Super Mutations (as per my understanding) started in Season 9, by Dave Wise. It's almost like they were sabotaging the show for Jeff's arrival, so he could take the blaime.

    They were pretty lousy, though. Seen them on the old Ninja Turtles DVD rerelease. Four episodes of Season 10 were bonus features, backing up the first 5 episodes mad in 1987!

    Yeah, I liked all of those. DuckTales was probably my fave though. :)

    Back to the subject....

    The only good thing about Baby Looney Tunes? June Foray is the voice of Granny.... and that's coming from a die Hard Bullwinkle fan, like me!
