The title card to the shorts, featuring Bugs Bunny and a new character, Professor Wizbot.
Status: Partially Found
Looney Tunes ClickN Read Phonics was an edutainment program developed by CNK Digital, and was launched in 2011. 10 brand-new shorts were initially created for the program, all apparently clocking in at six minutes, excluding the interactive educational portions featuring Professor Wizbot, a new character exclusive to the shorts.
The shorts were written by Bill Matheny, who previously wrote for the Looney Tunes DC Comics series. Joe Alaskey did all the known voices for the shorts, which include Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Taz, Sylvester, Tweety, and Yosemite Sam. The animation was directed by Rob Fendler, who also directed the animation for season two and onwards of Boomerang's The Tom and Jerry Show.
The known shorts with titles that are known to exist include Build a Better Birdcage, Bunny Brunch, 24 Hour Daze, and A Miner Problem. The only surviving footage comes from CNK Digital's official YouTube page, and features excerpts from Build a Better Birdcage, Bunny Brunch, and a third, untitled Road Runner short.
The shorts all fell into obscurity after the Flash elements of the website went down sometime in 2019. There is no current explanation as to why the site went down, but it can be assumed that CNK Digital may have gone out of business.
