Ok I don’t know what say about these two live-action adaptations based off some of my favorite classic Looney Tunes characters, other than I wish it was really coming out!
Even though Christmas is over, who says we still can’t celebrate? check out a real life Marvin the Martian in Hong Kong Phooey a live-action movie directed by Alex Zamm, produced Bob Engelman for Alcon & Rat Entertainment.
Zamm has posted two test footage “Yule be sorry” and another featuring Hong Kong Phooey from the proposed film, originally Hong Kong Phooey was to be voiced by Eddie Murphy, but I don’t think it is him, in these clips.
Ok so I have to admit I have NEVER watched CW’s Supernatural TV series. But I was reading all the reviews of the episode titled “Hunteri Heroici” written by Paul A. Edwards who also writes for Once Upon a Time. And so I had to watch the episode myself, this was one of the most creative cross-overs I have seen in along time. It featured cartoon-like events inspired by Looney Tunes episodes. I personally LOVE anything Looney Tunes so “Hunteri Heroici” was quite a treat I really don’t want to give it away cause I’m not into spoilers until after I watch things myself. But one of the best parts of the entire episode was the talking cat! So cute!
Exciting news to all the sneaker-heads out there, what if you heard that a sequel to the one of the most recognizable movies in sneaker-culture history might be just become a reality? This movie is Space Jam, 16 have passed since Michael Jordan teamed up with the Looney Tunes characters and Bill Murry to crush a team of aliens who had stolen some of the best moves from some of NBA’s most prominent players. NBA All-Star basketball player LeBron James from the Miami Heats recently posted on Twitter that he was a big fan of the original film and would love to do a sequel. There is no official word on developing a sequel. But who knows maybe since James’ has expressed interest they can get a studio on board. Space Jam has become a staple within the pop-culture and the sneaker community, it would be interesting to see what a revamp would do for the future generations.

I’m sure everyone knows that Bugs Bunny is comedian who likes to play basketball…right? But did you know he is a sneaker-head? Here is the Nike Air Jordan VII “Hare” solid mold prop sculpture. Featured in all white with burgundy accents and a super long tong (ear?) These shoes were shaped to fit Bugs’s big bunny feet. Which were used to promote the 1996 Michael Jordan’s Space Jam movie by Warner Bros. Family Entertainment. Which if you did not know was the first the debut of Lola Bunny. Hiphopcaliber (were these pictures came from) stated to SneakerNews. That they were samples that were meant to be thrown away but some lucky duck got to buy them off some store manager. Very neat prop indeed.
