Spawn of Looney Tunes Gang Go High-Tech

Move over Bugs and Daffy, there are some new kids on the cartoon block.

Warner Bros. debuts a new animated television series called Loonatics Unleashed in the fall.

The new show has generated confusion and prompted protest from those who fear the new generation of Loonatics will replace the original Looney Tunes characters altogether.

The new cartoon characters are super heroes who will protect the earth and fight evil with special super powers they inherited from their ancestors -- classic characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote and the Tasmanian Devil.

Guests:

Sander Schwartz, president of Warner Bros. Animation

Thomas Adams, 11-year-old from Tulsa, Okla., who started a Web site to prevent changes to the original Looney Tunes characters
