Storyline

The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie is basically a collection of Warner Bros. short cartoon features, "starring" the likes of Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile.E.Coyote. These animations are interspersed by Bugs Bunny reminiscing on past events and providing links between the individual animations which are otherwise unconnected. The Road Runner feature at the end consists of sketches from various RR separates (well it does in the 78-minute version anyway). Written by John Gibson

Trivia

The scene in which Bugs discusses his "several fathers" was written by Chuck Jones as a way to debunk fellow animation director Robert Clampett's claims throughout the 1970s that he alone created Bugs. Clampett's name is notably missing from Bugs's list. Also missing is Ben Hardaway, who created the earliest prototype of Bugs and was in fact the originator of the name "Bugs Bunny" (Bugs being Hardaway's own nickname), though in this case Jones later confirmed that the omission had simply been an oversight, and that he would have had no qualms about including Hardaway in the gallery.

Goofs

About 5 minutes into the movie as Bugs relates the beginning of man and he points out our fourth rate star, the Sun, you can see "Start 56+0 Filter 16 Yellow" written in the middle of the Sun. See more »

Crazy Credits

The title at first says "The Chase Movie". We hear the Road Runner's famous "Beep! Beep!" And the words "Road-Runner" replace "Chase"! Then it reads, "The Road-Runner Movie"! We hear Bugs say, "Oh, no ya don't!" And the words "Bugs Bunny" go on top of "Road-Runner". Then it reads "The Bugs Bunny Road Runner Movie". See more »

Enjoyable feature.
20 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

This compilation of classic WB short cartoons is (expectedly) highly uneven, but generally enjoyable. Among the highlights: Bugs Bunny as a vengeful symphony conductor, he and Daffy Duck arguing about whether it's "duck season" or "rabbit season" (this sketch has a hilarious punchline), the surrealistic (and also somewhat sadistic!) "Duck Amuck", etc. The final "Road Runner" segment does go on a little too long. Overall, this is a nice way to spend 95 minutes mindlessly and painlessly, and also a good opportunity to see some of those shorts that you may have missed on TV. (**1/2)
