Looney Tunes is a Warner Brothers animated cartoon series which ran in movie theatres from 1930 to 1969. It preceded the Merrie Melodies series, and is both WB's first animated theatrical series and the second longest continuous animated series in any medium. The regular Warner Bros. animation cast also became known as the "Looney Tunes" (often misspelled, intentionally or not, as "Looney Toons").

The name, Looney Tunes, was a blatant swipe of Disney's Silly Symphonies, just as most of the characters were. The basic job description of the animators seemed to be "imitate Disney". And they were quite successful.

Looney Tunes: Back In Action

Looney Tunes: Back in Action is a 2003 Warner Bros. film that combines live action and animation to tell the story of a hapless stuntman, DJ Drake (played by Brendan Fraser), who stumbles his way into a plot to possess a mysterious blue diamond in the course of rescuing his famous actor father (played by Timothy Dalton). In his globe-trotting adventure, he is aided (and confounded) by his animated Hollywood friends, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, as well as the studio executive who fired him (played by Jenna Elfman). Written by Larry Doyle and directed by Joe Dante, this film is essentially a feature-length Looney Tunes cartoon, with all the wackiness and surrealism typical of the genre. Grossing around US$21 million (US$68 million worldwide), it was a considerably large bomb, partially due to stiff competition from Elf and The Cat In The Hat, but earned relatively positive reviews from critics.

Space Jam

Space Jam is a 1996 American animated/live action film starring Michael Jordan opposite Bugs Bunny (voiced by Billy West) and the rest of the Looney Tunes characters. It was produced by Ivan Reitman, and directed by Joe Pytka (live-action) and Tony Cervone & Brce W. Smith (animation). This film was released by Warner Bros. Family Entertainment in 1996.
Other voices included Bob Bergen as Porky, Tweety, Hubie and Bertie and Marvin the Martian, Bill Farmer as Sylvester and Dee Bradley Baker as Daffy and Taz.
The Looney Tunes crew did not return to movie status afterwards until 2003 in Looney Tunes: Back In Action.
