Hopefully we New Yorkers will get used to it just as Londoners got to love "The Gherkin", which looks like a pickle.

    Is this really the headquarters for the entire Time Warner operation?

    Becasue personally, I take pride in buildings that are global headquarters as it confirms NY's status in the world. Also, these developments spur more developments in the long run.

    So no new Looney Toones have been made since 1963? Fascinating that there is still so much value in those characters. The portfolio of Bugs, Daffy, Elmer, RoadRunner, etc. has got to be worth hundreds of millions, if not billions.

    Yes. They still made cartoons, but the characters lacked "personality."

    PBS once did a program about the Warner animation studios. It seems it really was a looney place, staffed by illustrators who knew they would never fit the mold at Disney. The original Elmer Fudd, more human in appearance, was modelled after one of the studio employees.

    Daffy Duck was my childhood role model.
