Preview: Looney Tunes #240
Let’s kick off the weekend with a few old-timey yuks from Looney Tunes #240. Do kids these days still watch gangster movies? Even if they don’t, the tropes are probably familiar from cartoons. Here’s the birds-eye lowdown on this caper:
Fresh off their latest caper, Rocky and Mugsy hole up in their secret hideout…when the ever-pushy Charlie Dog shows up in his never-ending search for a home! Will an angry Rocky take the obnoxiously assertive canine for a ride, or will a delighted Mugsy simply take him for a walk?
The comic is out on Wednesday, but here’s a sneak peek. Enjoy!
