“We are beyond excited to be bringing iconic Looney Tunes characters including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Tweety to exclusive ranges for BIG W and the Australian Olympic Committee Official Online Store – we are absolutely certain these are going to be very popular with Australian families.  Whether Aussies are cheering from the stands or from their living rooms they are sure to be wearing the green and gold with pride.”

Merchantwise, together with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and local partners, including Designworks, Headstart and Scholastic Australia, have brought to life a Looney Tunes x Team Australia range exclusively for Australian retailer BIG W.
