Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Like the earlier cartoon series Tiny Toon Adventures, Baby Looney Tunes was a "retro" project involving most of the familiar characters from the Warner Bros. animation stable. Rather shamelessly emulating the classic Muppet Babies, the series offered infant versions of Bugs and Babs Bunny, Daffy Duck, the Tasmanian Devil, Sylvester, and Tweety, all wearing diapers and all cared for by Tweety's traditional "keeper" Granny. Tied in with a new line of Mattel toys, the program was far more "age appropriate" than the irreverent earlier incarnations of these famous characters. "It's a very cute, sweet show with a positive message," explained WB animation president Sander Schwartz. Given a sneak preview over the Cartoon Network on September 3, 2002, Baby Looney Tunes made its official cable-TV and syndication premiere on September 16.
