Storyline

Bugs Bunny and all his cartoon friends are stage performers entertaining audiences with 7 features per show, all of which are classic theatrical cartoons from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Brief interaction sequences on stage between characters was often intercut between the features. All shows began with Bugs and Daffy Duck singing "This is It" and a procession of cartoon stars marching across the stage. Then, a Road Runner song would play, accompanied by clips from his cartoons. All characters appeared at some point in the series, though the ones most frequently seen were Bugs, the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Yosemite Sam, Elmer Fudd, Tweety Bird, Sylvester Cat, Sylvester Junior, Hippety Hopper (the "Giant Mouse"), and Foghorn Leghorn. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Intelligent, Funny, Well-Drawn
15 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These classic cartoons were (and I think still are) my favorite all-time TV show (I have to admit I do not watch TV on a regular basis, as TV has recently returned to our family after an extended absence--but we watch a plethora of DVD's).

I remember waking up for the 7 AM Central Time showing as a part of my pre-game ritual as a pee-wee football player (and later the 8 AM Eastern Time in Virginia).

The funniest will always be Bugs Bunnie, followed by Daffy Duck. The RR/Coyote was okay, but the dialogue created by Mel Blanc for Bugs/Daffy is the heart of the show.

Later attempts at revival are not the same. The higher frame per second, 1950's animation was the best. The fewer frame drawing of the more recent episodes (along with Bugs' toned down demeanor) are not the same. On the other hand, the 40's episodes are funny, but Bugs doesn't really come into his own until the 50's.

My dad liked Bugs and said he was like Groucho Marx--and I think this is a good analogy. Today's cartoons just ain't the same. NickToons have some good comedy, and so does Dexter's Lab on Cartoon Network. However, the bathroom humor is often carried too far by Nickelodian.

Sit-Com cartoons were okay--I watched a lot of the Flintstones and Jetsons.

After WB, I also liked Bullwinkle (and his co-stars Dudley Dooright, Sherman and Peabody). Roger Ramjet was also hilarious, as well as Beanie and Cecil (especially if one understands the sarcasm).
