Loonatics Unleashed: The Complete Second Season


Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: D Episodes: A



The year is 2772, and with an alien energy from a renegade meteor has give superpowers to a bunch of already out of control tunes into superheroes! In the future-like earth Acmetropolis the five superheroes Ace Bunny leader with laser powers (and a sword), Lexi Bunny with mind blasting powers, Danger Duck the teleporter, Tech E Coyote - team tech guy regenerator, Slam Tasmanian the power house and Rev Runner the speedster go on missions saving not only the city but the world. With evil characters either trying to destroy, take over the world or just looking for a quick buck the five super powered mutant tunes is called into service, that is if they won't destroy each other first.


Another superhero cartoon series, it is like a mix of Looney Tunes with Power Rangers and superpowers. Based on the classic characters of Bugs Bunny, Babs Bunny, Daffy Duck, The Tasmanian Devil, Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner, they fight villains as well as based on other Looney Tunes characters. The series isn't quite like the older series, but you can see where they get their personalities. While younger fans won't care as much, they can enjoy the super powered-ness and super comedy the series shows. I found mixed feelings about this series, while Looney Tunes was more focused on comedy; Loonatics Unleashed is superhero adventures long with comedy. And with this series while there is still comedy and infighting between the characters there is also the plot of gotta save the day, defeat the bad guy and what did we learn today theme (with them being superheroes). I really enjoyed it more than I ever expected.


The picture once again is presented in a 1.33 X 1 Full Screen that is clear and color balanced, but would have appeared better in an Anamorphic Widescreen presentation. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo sound is fine, but still sounds like it is being held back. The extras are nil, which is unfortunate for such an interesting show.
