The Looney Tunes Show is an animated sitcom featuring characters from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons that ran from May 2011 to August 2014 on Cartoon Network. It was developed by Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone.
The show depicts the characters in a different, modern way, as if they were average parts of society. Bugs Bunny is an upper-middle-class suburban resident with a fortune made off of a Carrot Peeler, Daffy Duck is a narcissist who is not as intelligent as he thinks he is, Speedy Gonzales not only lives with Bugs and Daffy but owns a pizza parlour, and Lola Bunny is no longer a tomboy but a ditzy, obsessive girl who Bugs does not always feel comfortable around.

In the Merrie Melodies segment Tasmanian Meltdown, Taz goes on a rampage and bloats up for a second after consuming his own doghouse and all the water from Bugs' swimming pool.

This article contains details of the ending and/or a surprise plot element.
Bugs is addicted to the food made from Porky's grandmother's home recipes with butter, declaring that people look for delectability more than healthiness, but his addiction seems to get the better of him when he not only gains weight but steals the food from party guests.
Later, Daffy, who is serving as a water polo coach for Gossamer and his friends, sees a very large Bugs and cannot seem to tell the difference. Bugs goes with Porky to watch Daffy's water polo match at N.W. South Middle School as Porky refuses to cater for Bugs any longer. Daffy is thrown into the pool by his students when he starts to think that water polo is pointless, so Bugs rushes over and rescues Daffy, making a splash that empites the entire pool and squishing him, making him notice the difference. In the end, Bugs sticks to carrots as Daffy and Porky along with Gossamer and his friends eat what Bugs ate until then.
Mr. Weiner (S02E24)
Daffy is competing for a hot dog contest by eating as many hot dogs as possible, but his doctor advises him that it will damage his heart. At the fairground in which the contest is taking place, Daffy starts to regret attending, but to make sure his stomach has enough room he spots a helium tank and inflates himself, tying his leg to the chair with a string to avoid floating away. Daffy wins but the string snaps which causes him to do so anyway, distracting Bugs and Yosemite Sam in their attempt to pull off a daredevil stunt and surprising Porky on his date with Petunia. When Daffy gets too high, he deflates.
