Loons: The Fight for Fame is a cel-shaded beat-em-up game for the Xbox based upon the classic Looney Tunes series.
Rocky and Mugsy, a pair of gangster antagonists from the Looney Tunes cartoon series, try to ruin a film studio through making extremely expensive movies so that they can buy all the studio's stock very cheaply. The two hire Yosemite Sam to be their director and prepare to try to find the worst possible actor to be the star of their movie, with the candidates for the position being the Looney Tunes characters Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester the Cat, and the Tasmanian Devil.

The gameplay is somewhat similar to Capcom's Power Stone games where four characters fight against each other in an arena with the aim being to knock opponents out. Each arena contains gizmos, which can be used against opponents, such as spring-loaded boxing gloves, falling anvils, and other Acme-related products.
A unique element is the star power system. Activating items and picking up scripts strewn about the arenas will fill a star meter. Attaining a full star meter can activate a minigame, most of which parody popular arcade classics such as Marvin the Martian in Galaxy Invaders parodying Space Invaders and Temple Run parodying Pac-Man. Sometimes, these serve as requirements during a one-player game mode.
The graphics utilize cel-shaded graphics.

The game was poorly received due to the graphics and gameplay. However, the voice work was highly praised.
