ICYMI: HBO Max removes guns in new Looney Tunes! Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop series will be “different”!

Looney Tunes

Awesome 1st Trailer For Looney Tunes Cartoons On HBO Max Is Here ...

There is a reason why you should not mess with the classics. According to Bounding into Comics, the new Looney Tunes Cartoons, a show that is exclusive to the subscription service HBO Max, will not be giving the cartoon character Elmer Fudd his iconic gun; also revealed in the news HypeBeast, cartoon character Yosemite Sam’s guns will also be removed from this new cartoon. Peter Browngardt, the show’s director of Looney Tunes Cartoons commented on the removal of guns:

“We’re not doing guns. But can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.

It is believed that Browngardt chose this decision due to the response of gun violence and school shootings in the recent years.

“We’re going through this wave of anti-bullying, everybody needs to be friends, everybody needs to get along. Looney Tunes is pretty much the antithesis of that. It’s two characters in conflict, sometimes getting pretty violent.”

Cowboy Bebop': Did Producers Forget Faye Valentine was Chinese?

With Netflix working on the upcoming Cowboy Bebop live action series, expect some changes. Series writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach commented in a interview that the live-action series will not be a “one-to-one adaptation.” He mentioned that each episode won’t heavily be based on the anime where each episode was focused on the bounty, but fans can rest assure that we will still get the character plot between Spike, Julia and Vicious. Knowing how well the anime is and how fans appreciate it, Grillo-Marxuach makes a comment about adaptating this anime and mentions “We ain’t playing Bebop, Bebop is playing us”:

“We ain’t playing Bebop, Bebop is playing us. You can’t look at Cowboy Bebop and say, ‘Well, it’s just a take-off point. We’re going to give them different hair and different clothing, and we’re gonna call it something different. And it’s just sort of gonna be a loose thing. If you’re doing Cowboy Bebop, you’re doing Cowboy Bebop. You know? It’s kind of like doing Star Wars.”

He also mentions that mature content from the anime will be toned down in the live action version such as Faye’s clothing and Spike’s tobacco use. For Faye, he mentioned he wants “real women” to wear her clothes.

Invader Zim Netflix movie was originally going to be planned on TV?

Image result for invader zim enter the florpus

If you didn’t know, Netflix has released two classic Nickelodeon movies and specials of the cartoons Invader Zim and Rocko’s Modern Life. We have the movie Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus and the special Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. These two classics are back and are only available in Netflix. However, from sources I read, they were originally going to be on TV.

In a interview from ComicBook.com, Invader Zim creator Jhonen Vasquez tells them why did they choose Netflix instead of broadcasting the movie on TV. Here is what what he had to say:

“We had already finished production. Netflix really had no hand in the creation of the thing. Nickelodeon was the intended destination for it, but then there was a lot of changeover that happened in the last couple of months of production at Nickelodeon, just suddenly everyone that was supportive was no longer present. And I think we just rolled to the finish line in this junky machine that I think really only crossed the finish line out of sheer neglect by the end of it.”

Overall from this statement, Vasquez briefly stated that they were done making the movie and wanted to release it to the public. Unfortunately, the team he knew from Nickelodeon wasn’t there and the new team didn’t give them permission to put to on TV. Instead, thanks to Netflix platform, they were able to easily stream it for others. How do you feel about this news? Get ready for more movies plan such as Rise for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Loud House.

Nick movies Invader Zim and Rocko’s Modern Life is heading to Netflix

Image result for nickelodeon rocko

Image result for nickelodeon zim

Does anyone remember watching Rocko’s Modern Life during the 90’s? Remember the insane randomness in the cartoon Invader Zim? I got some interesting news to share. Originally in 2017 Comic Con, Nickelodean revealed two teaser trailers for the return of Rocko’s Modern Life and Invader Zim. Now we get an update from Bob Bakish, the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Viacom in regards to these cartoons. They are actually cartoon movies and they will be premiering on Netflix. Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter The Florpus will be on Netflix in summer 2019. It’s updated that Rocko’s Modern Life will be in late Summer.

Created by Jhonen Vasquez, Invader Zim premiered on March 30, 2001, running for 27 episodes over two seasons on Nickelodeon, winning an Emmy Award and an Annie Award for individual achievement in animation (which went to storyboard artists Kyle Menke and Steve Ressel, respectively). The series chronicles an alien named Zim who arrived on Earth from his home planet of Irk with imperialistic intentions of conquering the planet (in order to gain favor with his Irken home race). Wildly ineffective but hilariously earnest, Zim and his robot companion GIR attempted to blend in and study the human race while simultaneously trying to enslave it. Despite Zim and GIR’s subpar disguises, the only humans who realize they are extraterrestrials are school-aged paranormal investigator Dib.

In INVADER ZIM: Enter The Florpus, ZIM discovers his almighty leaders have no intention of coming to Earth and he loses confidence in his own amazingness for the first time in his amazing life, which is the big break his human nemesis Dib has been waiting for. At some point, GIR rides a tiny donkey, and that’s all anyone should really care about.

Created by Joe Murray and originally airing from 1993-1996, the animated series Rocko’s Modern Life follows the adventures of an Australian wallaby named Rocko and his two companions, Heffer and Filburt, through their adventures in their home of O-Town. Just like the original ‘90s series, “Static Cling” is hand-drawn special that stars Rocko, a wallaby who emigrated from Australia to the United States and enjoys the simple things in life; Heffer, Rocko’s best friend; Filburt, Rocko’s other best friend; and Ed Bighead and Bev Bighead, Rocko’s neighbors; as well as the other colorful characters.

Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling brings the beloved characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life, while Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks. Rocko wholeheartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world.

Also, it’s been announced a while back that Netlfix will also be in charge of other Nick projects such as the live action TV series Avatar: The Last Airbender, an animated series called Pinky Malinky, two animated movies of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Turtles and The Loud House.

What do you think about these movies being in Netflix?
