What does it take to be a Looney Tunes character?

11 posts in this topic

So as lame as it sounds I would love to have a job as one of the looney tunes characters at movie world.. What does it take? Is there an age restriction? Do you need to have good experience in dance/circus schools? Can you get a job for taking photos and not dancing in shows? Do you audition? If anyone has had experience in this and would tell me more about it that would be good to.. Thanks

I've seen some interviews with some of the characters. Apparently it is quite hard work. They do look for people with an accent, and you have to stay in character the whole time, even when talking to other staff members.

There are news articles around the place about this.

Can you get a job for taking photos and not dancing in shows?

Why would they hire someone unwilling to do much ,when there would be other applicants who can dance AND pose for photos. Anyhow, you'd speak to the parks HR dept, or just knock on the door of the entertainment dept.

I was called up for this position several years ago. Before the interview started I was informed that because of my shoulders being so broad I would not fit into the suits. They then said I could continue with the interview if I wanted. Asked if there was any point given that fact and they said no. Then enquired if this could be a major determining factor why there was othing stated about it pre interview. They were unable to answer.

I do not hold a grudge for it, just wanted to point it out, and pre warn anyone thinking of looking at such a position.

They used to have seperate character performers for the dancing and in park appearances. Not sure exactly how it is done now.

Are you a dancer? entertainer? did you have any experience before you applied?

Was both at the time. Had done a major in dance and performance and a lot of stuff around. They did not even look at my resume when I handed it to them.

It was straight to "your shoulders are too wide".
