    Episode #223: Space Jam LIVE!

    I didn’t know there was going to be a reboot! Regarding that ep, I agree it’s weird for a kid’s show, and I don’t think it should have been banned. It’s not like it was advocating drinking, it was just kind of dark.

    I didn’t have time to comment on this last night, but this is an awesome Buster Bunny! He and Babs were the best bunnies, and I don’t appreciate the Tiny Toons and Animaniacs erasure. Bring back Tiny Toons and their disturbing morality plays, damn it!

    Episode #223: Space Jam LIVE!

    While I can't speak to the physics to Tuneland, I can say that it's highly unlikely that even Michael Jordan at his peak would have survived the transitional zone between our world and the Looney Tunes subterranean kingdom. At just 0.15 kilometers (0.09 miles) beneath the Earth's surface, atmospheric pressure is strong enough to cause oxygen poisoning, or hyperoxia, which would have likely caused a pulmonary edema, in effect suffocating him as his lungs rapidly filled with liquid. What's far more likely is that what would have emerged from the WB logo would be the mangled, bloated corpse of an NBA legend with frothy, bloody sputum dripping from blue-tinged lips. Of course, there is the possibility that he's travelling so fast that hyperoxia doesn't have time to take effect; however, since we have to assume that the atmospheric pressure in Tuneland is somehow comparable to the Earth's surface, he would still have to contend with his body going from an extremely high pressure environment to a lower or normalized one. Such a rapid change would likely shatter his ear drums, cause decompression sickness, and in a worst case scenario, cause all the liquid in his body to boil. Although, to be fair, he would already be dead before it got to blood and saliva boilage. In any event, the extreme stresses placed on Jordan's body just getting to Tuneland would have probably killed him, and even if they didn't, he would certainly be in no condition to actually play.

    While I get that Michael Jordan is nominally the hero of the movie, I think that amidst all the glitz and glamor of jammed space it’s easy to overlook Lola Bunny’s heroism. You have to remember that Moron Mountain is only interested in the Looney Tunes for their marquee value, and this being Lola Bunny’s debut, there’s no reason to believe that the nerdlucks would have any interest in kidnapping her. Honestly, she could have just let all the other Tunes rot in Theme Park Damnation and used the comedy vacuum left behind to rise to the pinnacle of loonism. However, no matter how tempting that must have been for her, she suppressed that urge and signed up to play. Why? Two reasons: the love of the game and good old fashioned altruism. By joining the TuneSquad, she was deliberately putting a target on her back, risking her freedom and future simply because it was the right thing to do. We should all be so brave.

    I find it a bit disconcerting just how unquestioningly eager Jordan’s kids were to aid and abet Bugs and Daffy in stank basketball shorts larceny. I know they’re fans of the toons and all, but that’s really not an excuse. I mean, I’m a huge Beatles fan, but if Paul McCartney were to a break into my house at two in the morning to steal my father’s shoes and underwear, I’m going to call the motherfucking cops. Hell, Bugs and Daffy don’t even tell the kids *why* they’re stealing Michael Jordan memorabilia until they’re halfway out the door. Honestly, how much of a fuck up of a father do you have to be that your kids will gleefully give up your most prized possessions at the drop of a hat?

    When Jordan is initially seized by the Tune Squad, he is informed by Bugs that they are mostly concerned that they will be forced to perform “the same jokes every night.” However, as Paul mentions in the episode, according to the movie’s universe, all Looney Tunes cartoons perform their respective cartoons live. So if Bugs Bunny’s first appearance was in 1940, by the movie’s logic, that means he’s already been performing the same act, non-stop, for 56 years. Aren’t they kind of already doing what they’re afraid they’ll be forced to do? Instead of the threat being “we’re going to make you keep doing what you love doing, at the same frequency you’re already doing it, just someplace else,” wouldn’t the more appropriate conflict for a movie like this be if the aliens wanted them to *stop* being Looney altogether? At least then the threat becomes existential. Either they win the game, or they cease to be. This also can extend the threat to our Earth by claiming that without their zany antics, our world will turn into dreary, garbage can fire lit dystopia. I don’t know, but “forcing me to do the thing I love to do forever” seems pretty weak as far as stakes go.

    With those back problems? The Mon Stars would have ruined him.

    Oscar Wilde was all about being flamboyance, androgyny, and “art for art’s sake.” Maybe not the first glam rock star, but maybe a patron saint.
