"I give ya a piece of coal last Tuesday! Ya shoulda made it last!"
25 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A Looney Tunes version of A Christmas Carol with Yosemite Sam as Scrooge, Porky as Bob Cratchit, and Bugs as the guy who decides to dress up like a ghost to teach Scrooge a lesson. Sylvester is Scrooge's cat, though he has no lines. Tweety plays Tiny Tim. Elmer Fudd, Pepe Le Pew, and Foghorn Leghorn appear as carolers. It's a rush job that tries to tell the Dickens story in 8 minutes while also giving plenty of 'Bugs torments Sam' gags. The animation is sloppy but I've seen worse, especially made-for-TV. Most of the characters are wasted and, like I said, the whole thing feels rushed. Still, the likability of the characters goes a long way. It's a watchable way to pass the time but not particularly impressive. Originally part of the "Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales" TV special.
