Cartoon Network: That’s not all, folks

Cartoon Network is not just reviving the Looney Tunes franchise, they're making it into a half-hour sitcom set in the suburbs with the animation director from "Space Jam" exec producing.

Also in the works: four new superhero high school properties – two live action, one cartoon, one CGI telepic. These projects were among a raft of announcements by the Turner cabler during its upfront presentation at Time Warner Center.

Guess the "throw it all at the wall and see what sticks" approach worked well enough with reality shows last year to try again.
