Storyline

Parody of "This is Your Life," with Elmer Fudd as the host and Bugs Bunny as the guest of honor, much to the disgust of Daffy Duck. On several occassions, Granny has to whack Daffy over the head to get him to be quiet. Meanwhile, Bugs reminisces with Elmer and Yosemite Sam about their previous encounters (reviewed via footage from past Bugs Bunny cartoons). Elmer and Sam plan to present Bugs with a special gift (a time bomb) in appreciation of their "friendship," but Daffy (still believing he was meant to be the guest) grabs the gift and takes the resulting explosion.

Daffy at his insufferable best!
14 December 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon parodies the old Ralph Edwards show, "This Is Your Life." and does quite well at that. Daffy outdoes himself this time. Granny engages in wish-fulfilment for a great many people in her methods of dealing with someone sitting next to you who does not understand the basic fact that you did not pay good money for your seat to listen to them talk! Daffy gets what he deserves (as usual) and it couldn't happen to a nicer duck! Worth your time. Reccomended.
