Really, really good. But not for everyone.
First off, this is a really good cartoon. Looney Tunes or not. The Looney Tunes live in the real world and live among regular people. Bugs Bunny has a house, his roommate Daffy Duck, his neighbor Yosemite Sam, and he some-what girlfriend Lola. It plays out like a sitcom, but a good one. The jokes are funny, it's very entertaining, and the characters feel real. However, not everyone will like this. The Looney Tunes Show isn't supposed to be a laugh out loud comedy. I would consider the jokes more like the game Portal or the movie Hot Fuzz. It's not supposed to make you laugh like crazy, and in the end, the show is better. Watch the originals and notice how long each episode is, about 6-12 minutes the most. You can't have laugh out loud jokes go on for almost half an hour, which is why Regular Show and Mad are only about 11 minutes. Then watch a funny sitcom like the King of Queens, Seinfeld, Everybody loves Raymond, or Yes, Dear. There are funny, but not laugh out loud funny,
But how to the characters match up? Well, every character is interesting and every character has character. Personally, I think the characters that did change were for the better. Witch Hazel isn't a psychopathic witch, but the mother or a monster. This allows the character to open more and be more interesting, even if you don't think so. Gossamer is now an 8-year child. I was a little skeptical first, but once you remember that Gossamer was originally a monster, you soon realize that character doesn't work so well in a sitcom. Finally, Lola Bunny. Give her the voice of Kristen Wiig from Saturday Night Live, and you get a character that's fun to watch. She talks miles of dialogue at a time and at points made me laugh so much I had to rewatch to hear the joke again. Now, not every character will appeal to everybody, but from what they have, it's really good.
But faithful is it to the originals? Honestly, not really. If the only reason you wanted to watch this cartoon was because you really liked the originals and was hoping for the something similar, you won't like it. Look at the new Rambo movie, the new Rocky movie, Duke Nukem Forever, Indiana Jones, and the Expendables. Things that would be really cool back then, won't necessarily be good now. If the general public today who never heard who the Looney Tunes were would watch an episode of the originals against the newer version, the newer version would be the better.
Don't go into this cartoon hoping for something faithful. Go into it hoping to find something entertaining. You might end up liking this if you gave it a try.
