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>

What's Up Doc?
19 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There can be no doubt, the Warner Brothers Studios Animation department made the most entertaining cartoons ever. When this first hit the air in 1968 on CBS, it drew in viewers immediately. There is no doubt why- as Warners raided the studio vaults for lots of their best tunes to put in the series.

Then, there was Chuck Jones, the genius behind the Road Runner- Coyote series of tunes which brought cartoon stunts to previously unknown heights. Bugs was wise cracking everywhere, Foghorn Leghorn, I say I say, Sylvestor & Tweety, Yosesimite Sam, Pepe Lapew & more created one of the great cartoon worlds of all time.

Walt Disney was always considered the big cartoon person of the era with bigger than life character like Mickey Mouse. Warners produced lots & lots of characters who had not star quality like Mickey, but entertainment value & variety unparalleled still in cartoon history. Hopefully, they will bring these out in pristine condition on DVD.

Mel Blanc was behind a lot of these voices, but back in the old days, these folks at Warners were very good at lampooning real people without offending them. It is an art that seems to have been lost in this generation.
