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.
