It is a partnership event between CityCo, Manchester Business Improvement District (BID), Premier Communications, Warner Bros and Looney Tunes, in celebration the 16th July release of Space Jam 2: A New legacy. 25 years after the first, well-loved film.
The trail is a colourful walking tour of the iconic characters popping up around the city. It features the famous faces of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Road Runner, Tweety Pie and more.

Vaughan Allen, Chief Executive of CityCo & Manchester BID, says, “Manchester is renowned for its street art which is well-loved by residents, workers and visitors. We’re delighted to be partnering with the legendary Warner Bros company to bring its iconic Looney Tunes characters to the city centre for this fun, family-friendly, outdoor art trail.
Following the success of our recent Manchester Flower Show this is a great way of continuing to animate the city this summer in support of our business community.”
The street artist Captain Kris, alongside street art collective Blank Walls, designed the artwork with the aim to make the trail as vibrant and interactive as possible. As he usually works with bright colours and bold lines, Captain Kris was able to bring these characters to life through imaginative design and poses.
Captain Kris says: “Like most people, I’ve loved Looney Tunes since I was a child. It’s been a lot of fun creating these cheeky, adventurous poses, with the Looney Tunes characters wreaking havoc across Manchester”
That’s all folks!
