A documentary feature-styled production that tells the story of Bugs Bunny, the world's most-beloved cartoon character. The entire group of Warner Bros. cartoons are the focus here as original animators, consultants and technical advisers are all interviewed and archive footage is displayed. Golden-voiced Orson Welles narrates and live-action film splits time with original cartoon shorts. Easily the best compilation from the Warner Bros. and their animation department. An interesting and absorbing history to a part of the cinema that many take for granted. 4 stars out of 5.
