Warners "T-Works" Web Site, New Home for Classic/Contemporary Animation

This kinda funny. I was just talking with a client about how much I loved the old Tex Avery Looney Tunes, and how it was getting harder and harder to actually find them on TV. I already feel old enough making pop culture references about the 80's, Tex was way before MY time...

Hollywood Reporter has a story up about an exciting new site coming from Warner Bros:
Warner Bros. Entertainment will launch T-Works next spring, an interactive home for its iconic characters from Warner Bros. Animation, "Looney Tunes," Hanna-Barbara and DC Comics along with newer animation.
T-Works will present old "Looney Tunes" cartoons, featuring characters like Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig, alongside Hanna-Barbara offerings like "Scooby-Doo" and "The Flintstones," as well as more contemporary animation like "Batman Beyond."

The story also goes on to talk about web exclusive content, and a site where users can create their own "mash ups".
This is fantastic! The more studios do this, the more they will stave of theft from file sharing, and the more ad revenue they'll generate. People get better (legitimate) content, the studios make more money, everyones happy!
