Looney Tunes

Just in time for the holiday week drive, Warner Bros. Animation is dropping a four-episode original podcast featuring its star characters Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck in their own road trip. Looney Tunes Presents: Bugs & Daffy’s Thanksgiving Road Trip is the first podcast for the heritage Looney Tunes cartoon brand.

“The Looney Tunes have entertained audiences on countless screens and I’m so excited to bring their unique brand of comedy and slapstick to the podcast medium,” said Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios. “This brand-new expression of these beloved characters will satisfy fans of all ages and opens up a new avenue of storytelling for this iconic franchise.”

The podcast was produced by Warner Bros. Animation with production services provided by Story Pirates Studios which has worked with several other kids and family podcasts such as The Story Pirates Podcast, now in its fourth season, which has been downloaded more than 40 million times.

The plot of the family-friendly series written by Minhdzuy Khorami is spot on for the holiday. When Bugs and Daffy are invited to the Warner Bros. lot for a big Thanksgiving feast, the ever-prideful Daffy declines – refusing to celebrate a holiday whose entire purpose is the idolization of a turkey. With a little convincing, Daffy decides to attend but is determined to make ducks the official bird of Thanksgiving and hatches a plan to star in a big budget holiday movie. The only problem is, Daffy isn’t famous enough to star in his own movie, so Bugs and Daffy must take a road trip across the country to raise Daffy’s profile - making stops at football games, food events, and fashion shows. Join Bugs and Daffy on four hilarious episodes as they embark on a quest to turn Daffy into the “Thanksgiving Duck,” the official bird of Thanksgiving.

Lee Overtree serves as executive producer and director of Looney Tunes Presents: Bugs & Daffy’s Thanksgiving Road Trip. Benjamin Salka is executive producer. The series is produced by Sam Bair and Peter McNerney.
