Goodbye to the icons of Justice League, Teen Titans, and Batman: The Brave and the Bold, as well as Scooby and Looney Tunes lifers Bugs, Daffy, Sylvester, and Tweety. It’s makeover time for Warner Bros.’ studio lot in Burbank, which is in the process of removing the mural.

Cartoon changes are afoot as well across the continent in Florida, where Disney’s once-popular Magic of Disney Animation attraction is closing, sealing off the history of the artists who drew memorable movies there. Heck, earlier this year DreamWorks closed its entire PDI studio in Northern California. It’s been rough, people.

No word so far on what is replacing the studio’s Fourth-Wall-breaking facade, off of which heroes like Superman, Batman, Robin, and more seemed to fly. But inside sources assure us that Warner Bros. will continue to use this wall to promote their animation division, as they have for twenty-plus years.

Burbank veterans know, of course, that this mural removal is not without precedent. Warner Bros. removed an earlier mural in 2008, making way for the most recent one, which lasted a little over six years.

Change is good.
