Same here. As long as it doesn't try too hard to be "hip" or "modern" and honestly stays within the spirit of the classic Looney Tunes, I think it could actually shape up to be pretty good.

You watch the Van Buren and early Fleischer cartoons and you have one of the biggest WTF expressions on your face.

You forever associate the names "Tom" and "Jerry" with a cat and a mouse, and "Van Beuren" with "Martin" (a famous American President).

You think the Daffy/Speedy cartoons are "classic Looney Tunes."

You bought a Starling Films compilation and genuinely thought the cartoons you saw were how they were originally broadcasted.

If you think that Speedy Gonzales is a racist stereotype.

You're bucking for the Gene Deitch "Tom & Jerry" shorts to come out on DVD.

"I must defend the remarkable prescience of the Hanna-Barbera writers. In the early 1960s, they dreamed up a futuristic world that seemed impossibly beyond our reach. Their creativity predicted the microwave oven, slide walks, smart phones and robot teachers. All these inventions are now routine realities of the 21st century." - Janet Waldo (LA Times, 2011)

If you think a cartoon is automatically a classic because it was made before 1970.
