Warner Bros. Animation’s Get Animated: Invasion Exhibit At The Grammy Museum

The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles has opened a special exhibit yesterday (18th August) about the music in Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoons, the special pop-up exhibit is called “Get Animated: Warner Bros. Presents The Invasion”. The exhibit offers an immersive experience complete with props and sets which makes visitors feel that they’re in a cartoon. Warner Bros. animated shows have been influential in pop-culture not only for its animation but also for the use of music, it has popularised classical music and even created mainstream hits. This is the second pop-up “Get Animated Invasion” exhibit that has been taken place, the first one was held as a side event to New York Comic Con last October.

Visitors will journey though the classical pieces heard in Looney Tunes, the 1960’s psychedelic rock of Scooby-Doo, the 1990’s R&B hits from the movie – Space Jam, the musical numbers in Animaniacs and much more. For the exhibit, The Grammy Museum and Warner Bros. have invited a bunch of artists and designers to interpret and reimagine the music from the cartoons through their own unique lens. Also there will be a section for Warner Animation Group’s upcoming feature film – Smallfoot, which features a new song by Niall Horan.

Visitors will be able to share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #GetAnimatedInvasion. The exhibit will be open until Sunday 9th September, and tickets can now be purchased on the Grammy Museum’s website.

The new Looney Tunes cartoons will feature experienced Looney Tunes voice cast members including Eric Bauza (voice of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Tweety in the new shorts), Jeff Bergman and Bob Bergen. Sam Register (Teen Titans Go! executive producer and creator of Cartoon Network’s HiHi Puffy AmiYumi) and Peter Browngardt (Creator of Uncle Grandpa and Secret Mountain Fort Awesome) serve as executive producers.

Sam Register, the president of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, said: “Looney Tunes Cartoons places these characters into the hands of some of the best artists in the business and into an animated shorts format that will remind many of the time when they first fell in love with Bugs, Daffy, Porky and the rest of the gang.”

According to Peter Browngardt, he wanted to go back to the late 1930s, early 1940’s Looney Tunes art style, which he refers to as “super irreverent, super bananas and high energy”.

In other Annecy related news, Cartoon Network will host its popular Picnic By the Lake event on Thursday 14th June (12.30pm to 2.30pm), the event will be held in partnership with Warner Bros. Animation to help promote the cinema release of Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.

From The Warner Bros. Animation Press Release: Warner Bros. Animation Launches New Short-Form Content Program Looney Tunes Cartoons

Warner Bros. Animation is announcing its most ambitious Looney Tunes content initiative to date with Looney Tunes Cartoons, a series of new short form cartoons starring the iconic and beloved Looney Tunes characters. With multiple artists employing a visual style that will resonate with fans, each “season” will produce 1,000 minutes of all-new Looney Tunes animation that will be distributed across multiple platforms – including digital, mobile and broadcast.

Looney Tunes Cartoons echoes the high production value and process of the original Looney Tunes theatrical shorts with a cartoonist-driven approach to storytelling. Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and other marquee Looney Tunes characters will be featured in their classic pairings in simple, gag-driven and visually vibrant stories. Each cartoon will vary from one to six minutes in length and, from the premise on through to the jokes, will be “written” and drawn by the cartoonists allowing their own personality and style to come through in each cartoon.
