Bring back Looney Tunes on Boomerang! sign now

Beginning back in 2003, unhappy viewers have seen the airtime for Bugs Bunny and his friends continually being reduced as Cartoon Network focuses on their original animated series and anime and action cartoons. That is the same for Scooby-Doo, Tom and Jerry, and the rest of the Hanna-Barbera or Warner Brothers or MGM family. The digital cable channel, the Boomerang network, is now doing the same, moving some of the original Cartoon Network and Kids WB programming to the channel.

However, as of October 2004, Cartoon Network does not air any classic Looney Tunes material at all, and to make matters worse, the cartoons are now in danger of being canceled on Boomerang , which is inaccessible to most people, and those who are lucky to have it or have just got it are now noticing this. Instead, both on Cartoon Network and Boomerang, newer programming such as "Dexter's Laboratory" have replaced Looney Tunes's timeslot, which are nowhere near as classic or hilarious as the original Warner Brothers cartoons.

This is not what us cartoon fans were expecting. Not only has Cartoon Network canceled the annual "June Bugs" marathon in 2003, moving it to Boomerang, but also did nothing to help promote the big budget feature "Looney Tunes: Back in Action" in 2003 (except run the commercials and trailers), which was a huge box-office disappointment. This might be because of the minor airtime of these cartoons of Cartoon Network.

The lack of airtime for the Looney Tunes is also going to hurt Warner Brothers, the company that owns the characters, in the long run. Without the television exposure that they used to have, there will soon be an entire generation of children who have no idea who Bugs, Daffy, Porky, Wile E. Coyote and Tweety are. The beloved classic Warner cartoon characters are in danger of becoming as forgotten as Woody Woodpecker or Andy Panda or Mighty Mouse or even some early Hanna-Barbera characters!

However, there are the Golden Collection DVD sets. But there is a limited amount of classic Looney Tunes cartoons available on DVD, and some not even showing cartoons of certain eras (such as 1931-1935 or 1962-1990). When these cartoons were played on TV, all eras were shown (with the exception of the Bosko and Honey cartoons of 1930-1933). Plus, the sales for the DVDs are doing moderate success, showing how much the interest for Looney Tunes is decreasing fast!

The entire Looney Tune cast that set the foundation for American animation humor as we know it deserve better treatment than the one they are receiving now.

The goal of this petition is to have Boomerang (and possibly Cartoon Network) rerun the Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies film library. If the people at Cartoon Network get this message, it will mean that every person in this nation can once again have free access to these classics, without having to buy the DVDs.

Thanks for your time.

    My kids love Looney Tunes and don't understand why they can't watch it anymore. They are some of the only cartoons that I approve of my kids watching!

    Wasn't the Boomerang channel originally made specifically for the Looney Tunes and other classics from the golden age to have a home? Taking Looney Tunes off of Boomerang is like removing Babe Ruth from the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    I meant to say What's New Scooby Doo. Anyways, why in the hell that the "cartoon cartoons" on Boomerang? Most of those shows aren't even 10 years old and some of them aren't even 5 years old. Please Time Warner, take this junk off the air and bring back L
