Looney Tunes are focus of Cartoon Festival

January 04, 2007|by TIFFANY ARNOLD

FREDERICK, Md. - Uncut versions of vintage Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and other Looney Tunes cartoons will be shown Saturday for the Cartoon Festival at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick.

The show, comprised solely of Looney Tunes, starts at 2 p.m. and will last about 90 minutes. The oldest 'toons date back to the '30s, said John Healey, Weinberg's executive theater manager.

"The cartoons were often edited for television, for various reasons," said Healey, adding that he had reviewed all of the tapes. The cartoons contain no nudity or foul language.

While some of the cartoons veer toward political incorrectness - particularly those set during World War II - he said there isn't anything so objectionable that it would cause parents to question whether to bring the kids.
