Trivia

  • The series has several references to Space Jam.
  • Although not developed by the Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs crew, the developers made sure it's set in the same universe as them, aside from sharing some of its writers with them.
  • Although set after Space Jam, it doesn't feature the exact same voice cast as the film as only Bob Bergen, Kath Soucie, Bill Farmer, Billy West, June Foray and Maurice LaMarche reprise their respective roles, although with some exceptions.
    • Bob Bergen reprises his role as Porky Pig, but Tweety and Marvin the Martian are now both voiced by Joe Alaskey, reprising both roles from previous occasions.
    • Bill Farmer reprises his role as Foghorn Leghorn, but Sylvester is now voiced by Joe Alaskey and Yosemite Sam by Maurice LaMarche, reprising their roles from previous occasions.
    • Billy West reprises his role as Elmer Fudd, but Bugs Bunny is now voiced by Joe Alaskey, being his first stint voicing the character.
  • This series marked a shift on the Looney Tunes formula by adapting its distinctive style into a sitcom-like format, although keeping slapstick-focused scenarios in its heart.
  • The decision of making Lola a little airheaded and more situation-prone was an attempt to make her more than just the TBD tomboy who happens to be Bugs' girlfriend from Space Jam.
    • The developers also took inspiration from Babs Bunny from Tiny Toon Adventures and Dot Warner from Animaniacs to make her more TBD and fleshed out.
    • In addition, to deemphasize her suggestive looks, she now wears TBD.
  • The series' developers decided to add the characters from the one-shot The Dover Boys in a semi-regular basis due to finding amusing to take such iconic one-shot characters, especially Dan Backslide, and write new stories for them.
    • The characters themselves were slightly redesigned to have a more contemporary design and to fit with the designs of long-established human characters like Granny, Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam.
