Celebrate Star Wars Day with new Lego prequel recap video, new Blu-ray set

It’s billed as “The Fastest and Funniest LEGO Star Wars story ever told…The Prequel!” and it shows that when you have access to ALL the Lego sets you can make a pretty bitchin’ lego toon .

May 4th is celebrated around the galaxy as Star Wars Day not because it’s when the original STAR WARS opened (that would be May 25, 1977) but because it’s a pun on “May the Fourth Be With You.” It is celebrated by gradually replacing humans with droids and disappointing expectations.

Last night the newest reboot of the Looney Tunes, The Looney Tunes Show aired on the Cartoon Network and I didn’t watch it, but there are a bunch of clips floating about such as the above. The show is billed as a new concept for the venerable characters — Bugs and Daffy have moved to the suburbs and are roommates and have wacky neighbors. YOU know…a sitcom. You should probably give this clip it a watch before you read the following, because I wouldn’t want to prejudice anyone. Rebooting the Looney Tunes is one of the most thankless tasks on earth, and the general level of wretchedness of the various efforts over the years testifies to how pointless it is.
